Are there any Dremel tool projects on line? Can someone help by recommending a site?

Have you checked the Dremel website? I looked there a few months ago, and I feel like I saw quite a few projects. Also, there might be videos on youtube if you do a search.


I've been using ours with the flex shaft attachment to polish some of the jewelry I make. Probably not as good as the dedicated flex shafts available to jewelry makers, but since we already had the equipment, it works for me!

My husband recently received a rotary tool with accessories. Does anyone know of a web site with rotary tool projects? Any ideas for projects using this tool?

Go to the Dremel tool web page. They have quite a few projects listed and shown and also tells which accessories to use on each project most of time. You can also sign up for the Dremel to newsletter which comes about once a month. Hope this helps (03/26/2008)

I squared off various worn screw drivers using the cutting wheel, I guess. I cut a groove into a PVC pipe I was forcing over a pipe that had a screw head sticking out. I smoothed off pipe end I cut with a hacksaw, rounded off sharp corners of a wood project, ground off dried glue (Elmers?) that held a corner plastic guard. (08/17/2008)
