Renew your ride with the Dremel Automotive Kit

Automotive Kit

Dremel Automotive Kit

Summer is the perfect time to pop open the garage and get to work on your favorite four wheels. Whether it’s your car, truck, motorcycle or RV, you’re going to need a rotary tool that’s as versatile as it is precise to tune-up your ride.

With 7.2 volts of power that you can take anywhere, the Dremel Automotive Kit includes a two-speed cordless tool, perfect for do-it-yourself jobs on your car’s interior, body, or under the hood. No outlet necessary! The automotive kit also includes 10 accessories to help you cut, buff and clean while you’re fine tuning your car. You can even cut a rusted clamp using the 426 Cut-Off Wheels. Whether you need to fix a few small things, or you’re a full-fledged auto-enthusiast, this kit will help you polish off your to-do list in the garage.

How to: Cleaning a Corroded Battery
Materials you’ll need:
  • Baking Soda and Stiff Brush
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Wrench for Cable Clamp
  • Wrench to Remove Battery
  • Waterproof Grease
Step-By-Step Instructions:
  • To get started: Disconnect the cable clamps from the battery (negative/black first and then positive/red). Reconnect the cables to the battery securely (positive/red first and then negative/black). Any looseness in the cables can prevent your car from starting so tighten them securely.
  • Step 1: After loosening the cable clamps and battery holder, remove the battery from the vehicle.
  • Step 2: Begin by cleaning the entire top of the battery of dirt and oxidation using baking soda and water.
  • Step 3: While the battery is removed from the vehicle, clean the cable clamps until shiny with the 535 or 536 brass brush. Recommended speed: 15,000 rpm.
  • Step 4: Re-install the battery in the vehicle. Lightly coat the connections with grease and re-attach the clamps.
