The Dremel tool is one of my favorite goodies in my tool bag. Using different bits and attachments, you can do a million different crafts. The first step in using a Dremel is picking the ideal bit for your project. I like to think of it as a mix-and-match game. Ask yourself these two questions:
- What task to I want to do? (like cutting, sanding, or engraving)
- What material am I going to use? (like wood, glass, or metal)
Find the attachment that works with both of your answers to the questions above and you’re ready to get started. I always like to experiment a bit before I dive into the craft at hand. It helps ease your nerves, find your groove, and gain confidence. As you practice, play around with the speed settings and various bits to see what happens.
