Even though it's the most stable and comfortable way to hold the dremel, Don't cover the vents. Use the lowest rpm on plastic. Also, use only fiberglass reinforced cutting disks. The thin ones suck ass. See all those stones? Ignore them. You will never be happy that you used one. Your tools are the sanding drums (not on plastic). the 1/8" drill bit, reinforced cutoff discs, carbide burrs (not on plastic), and the sanding discs ( also, not on plastic.)

One tool you will need for that is a nice pair of diagonal cutters. Great for nibbling at plastic. Get a small pair that has a spring so they open when you release.

Also, when you are using the tool, make sure the exhaust is not blowing in your face. Also, try to avoid being in the same plane as the blade. Flying melted plastic is not fun.

We had a post from a guy that broke a sliding glass door when a cutting wheel shattered. Cost him ~$500 to replace. Hint.

And put the workpiece in a vice or otherwise make it stable depending on its size.

since you have glasses I say go for a paintball mask 10x stronger and much more comfortable if you but an okay pair.

Help on Mastercraft Rotary Tool Kit

Hello, this is my first post and it is a request for help on the Mastercraft Rotary Tool Kit model 54-4742-2. I think this is the 52 piece one. I just bought it used but like new condition from someone but they had lost the manual/instructions. I have never used one before so not sure what the little bits do and wondered if someone can advise me as to where I could go to get a copy of instructions. Thank you!

You might try contacting Canadian Tire (www.candiantire.ca). Some of what I've found leads me to think that MasterCraft may be their brand.
