Attaching cutting bits to dremel?


How do I do this? I want to put a circular saw attachment (fiberglass disc) onto my dremel, I can't figure it out, directions don't specify.

you'll need this attachment if you don't have it already:

just unscrew the screw on the top, place the cutting disc onto the screw. Replace the screw with the cutting disc back onto the mandrel.

I figured it out! I had to remove the collete to put the bit in.

I like the chuck attachment, Much better than that snap fit POS. And allows me to use any size shaft or drill bit.

Really? I didn't think butter cut through steel very well...

You have to move your butter faster....then it cuts great.

Have you tried those little 1" wheels for the dremel? They are great little bits for cutting pretty much anything, but they wear out like crazy. You might want to get a package or 50 or so if you plan on doing much work with them. Oh, and eye glasses are a must for those perticular bits..... they have a habit of exploding regularly...

I have goggles, don't wanna get a hunk of metal in my retina O_O

The 1", are they good for rounded cuts?

the 1" cutting wheels arn't great for raounded edges, but they can do them. The bits themselves are pretty brittle so you can't just twist the bit. If you go slowly and are carfull with them, you can cut prety much anything you can think of.
