Does anyone know the secret with these things? They are a
great idea, until you use them. I'm not a novice with
handtools, but no matter how carefully I use these bits,
they break. Doesn't seem to matter if an upward or downward
motion is used; whether used at 90 degrees or 45 degrees; a
deep cut or a shallow cut; the result is the same.
Hey kids! I've got a great idea:
Use your Dremel for what it does best (grinding metal) to reshape the
utility knife blade into a hook-shape (something like the shape of a
plexi-glass scoring tool) with a single sharp tooth that cuts on the pull
stroke. Also grind up one that cuts on the push stroke for getting into the
corners. We're always re-grinding, adapting, rebuilding existing tools and
making special tools to solve these vexing old-house problems.
