Dremel bits explained

Sanding Bits

You can use your Dremel tool for sanding down various surfaces. Use the right bit on your Dremel tool for sanding and smoothing out wood. However, do not make the mistake of thinking that you are limited to just that. With the right sanding disc or band, you can sand materials like fiberglass, clay, and plexiglass.

Cutting Bits

The Dremel tool functions well as a cutting tool if you know what bits to use. There are plenty of different kinds of cutting bits that you can use. All Dremel tool bits for cutting are shaped like discs.

However, that does not mean that all cutting discs are built the same way. Some have minimal gaps between the teeth for precise cutting. Others have more significant gaps between the teeth, which helps for bulk cutting, where you do not care too much what the final product looks like.

Etching and Engraving Bits

Dremel tools are perfect for etching, engraving, carving, or general decorative work. This is because Dremel tools are small and allow precise engraving and decorating.

Using etching and engraving bits is easy. Pick the specific bit you want and pop it onto the end of your Dremel tool. They come in different patterns, sizes, and styles, so all of the difficulty comes from finding the one that works best for you.

Routing and Drilling Bits

In addition to cutting, engraving, sanding, polishing, and everything else that it can do, it can also act like a drill. That makes it versatile. With the proper routine or drill bit, your Dremel tool can become an option for routing wood or drilling into soft materials like wood, plastic, or thin metal.

Dremel drill

A drill is a powerful tool for drilling holes and driving screws. Like a Dremel, it is a rotary tool. Compared to Dremel, it is a larger tool in size. The reason why it is bigger than a Dremel is the big handle.

A drill has its output power parallel to the drive shaft. A drill has an rpm of 1500. It is more of a power-based tool rather than a speed-based tool. Hence it helps in functions like driving a screw or drilling a hole. However, it will not fulfill a variety of other speed-based functions. These are by the Dremel tool. 

They are for miniature applications. There are many types of drills: some are powered manually, and others use electricity or compressed air as the motive power.

Dremel tips and tricks

  • Avoid pressing too hard with the tool. A light touch is the best touch. Your Dremel tool could stop rotating when too much pressure is applied.
  • Check your grip.
  • Choose the right attachment.
  • Align your accessory with the Multi Chuck.
  • Before you start a project, always test your skills (and your chosen accessory) on a piece of scrap wood, glass, or metal.

Dremel Saw Attachment
