FEATURED PROJECT
Make Decorative Gifts for Mom
with the Dremel Stylus


Want Mom to remember exactly when and where she received your gift? Make it memorable by using a Dremel to personalize it with her name, the date or an engraved message.

The new Dremel Stylus is ideal for making one-of-a-kind memories. The accuracy and precision control of the Stylus allow you to easily personalize any gift. From intricately etched glass flower vases to personalized sterling silver picture frames, Mom will instantly light up when she sees your message engraved on it. Using the Stylus with a #83322 silicon carbide grinding stone, carefully trace your design or text onto the object. Keeping the Stylus at a maximum speed of 25,000 rpm, let the tool do the work as you focus on the design.

Question:

Does Dremel sell empty toolboxes?  I'd like to buy a carrying case to hold my Dremel tools and accessories.

Answer:
While Dremel storage cases are not sold separately in retail stores, Dremel understands the need to keep our products organized and ready to go! Dremel offers two cases through the Service Center in Racine, WI to provide consumers an extra or replacement cases.

Two additional storage areas located in the lid keep loose accessories – like polishing wheels – together while a designated bottom compartment is perfect for storing the flex shaft, cutting guide and grout guide attachments. The Deluxe Window Storage Case retails for $21.30 (not including shipping and tax where applicable).

DREMEL PROJECTS AND COMMUNITY
Spring Fix-Ups with Dremel

Your Dremel tool is an ace-in-the-hole for quick spring fix-ups around the house. Dremel helps speed up home fix-ups and bring new life to worn or weathered materials in 20 minutes or less.
  • Polishing Bicycle Rims – After being laid up for the whole winter, bicycle rims and handlebars can get rusted and dull. Be the talk of the town this spring by renewing the shine on your family's bikes without purchasing new ones. Using the #520 Polishing Wheel with the new Dremel Stylus, gently remove any rust on the bicycle rims or handlebars. Dust off areas with a soft cloth. Once clean, shine the handle bars and rims with the #414 or #422 Polishing Wheels and some Dremel Polishing Compound.
