Yeah, actually it lit up like a toy (the ends) and I kept on cutting until I noticed the circle accessory faded away... I really thought it was strong enough, though.
Of course I was going by what it said on the box
Going to lowes guys, getting the strongest head i can find.

EDIT: I might not be able to get it today... Anyways, I'm going to start sanding the big piece.

Wow... It's been some time... I've got some bad news. I got the fiberglass cutting heads but three of them just popped off and TWO of the mandrels broke (when I bought one from lowes, it came broken O.o) so I can't use any cutting heads unless I buy a another mandrel. I cut the bottom a little too uneven so the bottom is messed up. I am going to get a jigsaw and sell my dremel...
Unless there is some kind of stand where I can cut it with the dremel vertically.

I have that in mind... I just need a stand/workstation.

Found one:
