The Dremel EZ Lock makes accessory changes as easy as pull, twist and release. The one-piece mandrel design eliminates the need for the screw and a screwdriver, simplifying the process of changing cutting wheels and making it easy to quickly cut through a range of materials from metal to plastic.

Question:

Can I use a Dremel to install a door latch?
   ~ James McWilliams, e-mail

Answer:
Yes.  To install a door latch, we suggest the #335 plunge router attachment and the #650 1/8" straight router bit.  With the router attachment and the appropriate bit, you will be able to route out the area necessary for the latch to rest properly.  The router will help maintain depth for consistency.  To begin, use the latch as a template to draw the pattern on the wood.  The Plunge router attachment works with most Dremel models including the Dremel 300 Series and the Dremel 400 Series XPR.

To order, contact Dremel's customer service team at 1-800-437-3635, Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Standard Time.

Replacing a Gutter Corner

As warmer weather approaches, there is no better time to turn to your Dremel tool for home maintenance projects.  Replacing a gutter corner is one sure way to help prevent damage to your home.  By clearing debris that has collected during the fall and winter months, you can help keep water draining and prevent wear and tear on your gutters.

Following are some steps to replacing a gutter corner on your home or garage:
  • Step 1 – Grind centering holes in the rivets that hold the gutter in place with the #945 grinding stone. Next, drill out the rivets with the #150 drill bit.  We recommend using the Dremel 10.8v Lithium-Ion Cordless Rotary Tool at 25,000 rpm.


  • Step 2 – After removing the old corner, clear away the old sealant with the #121 high-speed cutter. Recommended speed: 25,000 rpm.


  • Step 3 – Position the new corner and drill holes for the pop rivets. When drilling, try to use the same holes from the old gutter corner.


  • Step 4 – Use a pop-rivet tool to install new, color-matching rivets. Then apply sealant to the joints (sparingly) so water doesn't become trapped.
