    Default Dremel consumables

    Hello all.
    I've been using my Dremel to cut thin stainless steel mosaic pins. 6mm diameter with copper inserts in them . They are used for knifemaking, to decorate the handle scales.
    The kit I bought years ago had some fibre reinforced discs and some thin cutoff discs.
    The thin cutoff discs worked a treat but I only got 2 or 3 cuts and they were worn out.
    I have seen on fleabay stacks of spares and supposed thin diamond cutoff discs.
    Any opinion on those.
    Also anyone know if they would be available in the Newcastle area.
    Or alternatives.
    Thanks in advance
    Lyle

    I've been using the selections off AliExpress.

    I've found them to be EXCELLENT.

    the polishing pads and cutoffs from here worked very nicely: Jopolish Store

    Thanks for that.
    Have you had a go with the diamond discs at all?

    have you looked at these, I only fluff around with small jobs on my dremel but am sold on these both quality and time they last.

    Another vote for the Ezilock cutoff discs, makes short work of small metal cutting jobs . . . shortening screws for a SWMBO job . . .

    It's been a bloody funny week this one.

    I've contemplated three different jobs and I've now been asked for info on all three.

    The coincidence is astounding.

    Anyway!.... Yes. I bought the fibre cutoff disks as 2x50 packs. They were cheap and I've used them on many jobs, mostly commercial ones. They've worked admirably and none have exploded or acted like el-cheapos.

    I'd buy them again.

    The stuff from China isn't packed in pretty packaging like the Dremel stuff at Bunnings. It's often just newspaper or baggies ... But one doesn't need fancy wrapping.... Just a good consumable.



    ..... Now, back to looking at jewellery making and polishing bits.... (The coincidence is astounding).

    Yes, I have 10 of the little diamond disks. They seem to last forever.
