You know how people use the word Kleenex when they mean tissues? That's sort of the same identity situation Dremel has. When people refer to using a Dremel, they mean they are using a rotary tool. Just like Kleenex, Dremel has become what people call a rotary tool.
As part of The Home Depot ProSpective campaign, we are sharing a couple of Dremels, uhh, I mean a couple of rotary tools and accessories!
In this video we share a couple of accessories from three of the variety pack of accessories. First up is the Sanding and Polishing kit. I'm using a mild abrasive disk to clean the brass legs of this mid-century modern chair. I varied the direction of the cleaning path to keep from getting any obvious horizontal or vertical lines. It's always a good idea to test these accessories, if you can, in an inconspicuous place to be sure it will cause no damage. I used the mildest abrasive accessory in the kit. If need be, I could always go to a higher grit.
This was tedious, but I found I could clean areas of tough dirt in the grout and crevices of my kitchen tile. This tile has a bumpy surface that collect dirt. It is extremely difficult to remove through other means. I wouldn't use it over the entire tile surface, but it works really well on these random areas.
This post is just the tip of the iceberg of the things you can do with a Dremel Rotary tool. Please share your tips and favorites uses in the comment section below.
