Feature — “30 Minute Miracles” Contest Winner

This month, we’re sharing more simple and affordable home improvement project ideas by introducing you to the second place winner in our “30 Minute Miracles” Contest. Wendy Ballog of Parma, Ohio, used a Dremel rotary tool to add curb appeal to her home by engraving her address into a large sandstone rock on her front lawn.

“It looks like I had it professionally made,” said Ballog. “When people ask me where I had it made and I tell them I did it myself with my Dremel rotary tool, they just can’t believe it.”

Ballog’s sandstone address carving is a simple and affordable way to spruce up your landscaping this spring. Here’s how she did it:

Ballog first bought sandstone from her local garden center. Then, on her home computer, she created a stencil by printing her address in the font and size she wanted to engrave. She cut the characters out of the printed page.

Next, Ballog taped her homemade stencil to the sandstone rock and traced her address onto the sandstone with a pencil. She then attached a 9910 Tungsten Carbide Cutter accessory to her Dremel 300 Series rotary tool and gently held the tool to the rock, grinding out her address.

Ballog perfected her engraving by using a 7134 Diamond Wheel Point accessory and her Dremel 300 Series rotary tool to touch up areas that needed fine detailing. Her end result was a professional quality lawn decoration that continues draw compliments – a true “30 Minute Miracle” that certainly caught our attention.

When we notified Ballog that she was a contest winner, she couldn’t believe it. “I entered the contest because I get so many compliments on my address stone, but I never thought I’d win,” she said. “It just goes to show that Dremel makes DIY projects easy for anyone to complete.”

It’s the brand’s most versatile and highest performing cordless tool yet, and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.

The do–it–all kit includes everything you need to cut, sand, grind, sharpen, polish, clean and carve in a convenient, wall–hanging case.

Expert Advice — EZ Lock Mandrel System

EZ Lock accessories first debuted as a revolutionary way to reinforce cut–off wheels and make accessory changes as easy as pull, twist and release. However, over the years, the popular EZ Lock Mandrel System has expanded beyond standard cutting applications to include sanding, polishing and cutting floor tile. Now, using the EZ Lock Mandrel System allows you to save time and increase productivity when changing a variety of accessories.

For sanding, you can use the EZ Lock Mandrel System with EZ471SA Detail Abrasive Brushes or 511E EZ Lock Detail Abrasive Buffs. These accessories are the perfect fit for jobs like refinishing furniture, cleaning grills, removing paint, tarnish and more.

To polish, use the 423E EZ Lock Polishing Cloth Wheel. This accessory can be used with the EZ Lock Mandrel System for applications such as polishing silverware, car detailing and restoring door and window hardware.

If you have questions about the expanded EZ Lock System, please contact the Dremel Experts via e–mail or 800.437.3635. We can be reached Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CST.
