I've considered getting a dremel many times before. What exactly can they do? Can you do your own mills with one? I'm a diy guy and I love doing projects on markers and I was just curious if a dremel would be a good investment. I already have plenty grinders, polishing tools etc in the garage.
Hello, try creating a account on http://www.instructables.com/ it is a DIY site, and has a few home built milling with cnc or with out. Its a great place for projects or just ideas. Most everything has instructions in PDF. Plus prize contest you can enter for posting your project dyi. Try it and good luck ! Eric
Sorry I forgot about this link, vanda-layindustries.com they have the set up that may help you also! Eric
You can build a DIY mill, with a dremel at it core, but it would work only with wood and plastics.
Dremels are commonly used to devalue and ruin paintball guns. :D
They're pretty useful. Probably not much good for milling but nice to have for small tasks. With some patience, planning and a steady hand you can do a lot with them.
Dremel's are awesome, but make sure to get a "Dremel" mototool, not a crappy off brand rotary tool.
I own a couple Dremel's, They will come in handy for more than you know, and aren't really that expensive.
To add, the milling can be successfully done but you have to realise the limitations of the machine. I've seen guys do Aluminium just fine, but it is much, and I mean like aeons, longer than a proper purpose built machine. I used mine with the felt polishing tips to give a mutt of a Sheridan a mirror finish.
I need my dremel. YOU NEED A DREMEL....EVERY ONE NEEDS A DREMEL!!!
Seriously, the things that would be agonizing to accomplish with out mine. SHEESH!
Hands down one of the best investments I have ever made.
A dremel is a microscopic freehand mill. You can do some amazing things with it but you need to understand its limitations and your limitations.
Some things ive made with a dremel.
Eye covers for amg.
Slot on feedtube for dsg.
Polishing sears and other running surfaces. Cutting off standard screws to match the odd length needed for a particular body and frame. Grinding and re-polishing the stainless flatware your family drops in the running disposal.
