Small Form Factor Case - Dremel + Small Steel Work

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Morning All,

I wanted to ask the community for its opinion. So I'm working in a very small form factor case, with an inner steel frame. I love my Dremel and intend on using it for small cuts, modifications, buffering and sanding here and there. Does anyone have a recommendation for bits best used against steel? Again I'm working in small areas, so a wheel isn't necessarily going to fit. The steel is definitely less than 1mm thick.

Thanks a bunch!

Anything other than an abrasive / cutoff wheel is going to leave you with a lot of burrs and a lot of sanding.

You could always take a 1/8" bit and drill the rivets out, do your cutting, then use a $20 pop-rivet gun to put it back together. Requires a little more time, but it's a better way to do it.
