#1 Rule: Wear safety goggles.

#2: Don't cut yourself.

Also make sure you use the right bit for the job, so you don't waste or break anything.

I suggest everyone stay away from the this dremel cutting wheels that at least used to come with them. that will shatter into 1K pieces right before your very eyes. Dangerous.
I highly suggest the bigger reinforced cutting wheels as they kick butt. Ive seen pictures of them around maybe thats all they use now for all i know.

when i first got mine i wish i had that tip.

if they are the really thin ones, they are dangerous IMO. Like8 sheets of paper thin and if i remember like tan sand colored.

I use the thick dark brown cutoff wheels , looks like a grid kinda in the top and bottom of the disk , like layers. Ok why didnt i do this soone. These are good
If yours came with thinner weak looking ones Be carful with them if you use it because it will shatter.
Other than that Hold the dremel firmly, and have some fun!

Hi there, and congrats. You should have an arbor that has a screw at the top. Unscrew the screw, put the wheel on the screw, and thread the screw back into the arbor.

I want t you to watch out for the smaller wheels in the left . Maybe there is a specific paper cutting purpose for those. IDK they stink.

Id also like to take this time to point out READ THE BOOK that came with it. Im not giving you a hard time, Im just one of those people who does it. I can say 9 out of 10 times it helps me in the future , as to never having to stop or whatever. It really does help out. That think looks nice BTW mine is older. Have a Ball

I actually bought the e-z mounting kit for the dremel. No more tiny screwdrivers to take an attachment off.

When working with the cut off discs, I use a safety goggle (A MUST) and sometimes use a mask. Believe me, aluminum dust can be dangerous.

Compared to a jig saw, work can be really slow but you can make precision cuts and I prefer that. Make sure you switch out discs fairly frequently and don't cut fast and hard. Take it slow and easy to lessen the stress on the cut off discs.

I also like to use the tungsten cutting bit. It's great for shaving down metal and cutting tricky corners.
