    There are others who say that this bit doesn’t work… the only thing I can think is that they do not understand how to use it. I have used these bits to cut through lanolium, wood, sheetrock and metal with no problems.

    1) IT IS NOT A PLUNGE BIT!! There is no sharp, or split tip with which to bore into an object. Instead the bit has to be leaned into the item to be cut until it is perpendicular to the surface, or started from an edge.

    2) After you understand how to start a cut you must remember that SPEED is of the ESSENCE – the faster the bit is spinning the better it will cut.

    3) The last thing to remember to use this bit successfully is to let the tool do the work. Light, slow, controlling pressure is the best way to make a successful cut, and the harder the material being cut, the slower one will want to advance.

    I love these bits and always keep a couple of them in my case with my rotary tool.

    Great bits BUT…., June 23, 2010

    Making this quick, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE these bits, and they are one of my all time favorite and most used rotary tool bits. Ditto to all that was said about knowing how to work them. These have a bad habit of snapping when you apply too much force in the wrong direction, and they are more prone to break when they get hot. Make sure you’ve got those safety glasses on for these buggers because if the piece of bit doesn’t go flying, your work piece is going to throw “snow” like crazy as the bit does its work… It’s like a blizzard in miniature, haha, which is half the fun IMHO. At the right speed and with the right handling, these things are BRUTAL… They require a strong and sure grip because they can take off on ya, and they can cut REALLY fast depending on the material. I’ve cut plastic, wood and metal in even large thicknesses (over 3/4 inch!!) with them and had ok to fantastic luck. They are a must for anyone with a seriously abused Dremel or other similar rotary tool.

    One word of advice… Shop around. I once found a three pack of these type bits at a Wal Mart, years ago, and decided to get them on a whim because I got the three for a GREAT price, much cheaper per unit than the Dremel brand. I am now kicking myself for not remembering what brand they were, because they were actually tougher (less break prone) than the Dremel brand and cut fantastically well – in fact I still have one and don’t have any of the Dremel brand anymore. Moral is, any time you have a drill or rotary tool bit that likes to break on you, think bulk, and note down the brand in case you find a winner.

    These things work great. Make sure you have the plastic guide cage designed to work with this bit and the Dremel.

    They do break if you torque on them. Buy an extra one to make sure you can complete the project in case of bad luck.

    FYI- My local stores are always sold out of these “bit only” sets (they require you to buy a bigger set that comes with the plastic guide cage).
