How the dremel saves me a lot of time.


By ApplianceJunk - Friday, February 6, 2009


I have been using the dremel with the cutting wheel for years. I'm a appliance technician and owner of ApplianceJunk.com

I think my dremel is around 20 years old now. Here is a photo of me using it to cut off a spanner nut on a Maytag washer so I can remove the tube.

I still remember the first spanner nut I busted off before I found bought a dremel. What a killer that job was. Oh how happy I was after I started using the dremel with the cutting wheel.

I should also note I'm a bit of a forum junkie so I hope you don't mind me hanging around a bit to see what I can learn. Smile

Thanks for the welcome Dougmo60.

I feel the need to go by a new dremel, lol..

The one I have serves me just fine, but like I said it's years old.

I may start finding many more uses for a dremel too after hanging here for awhile. Smile

Hi ApplianceJunk

From one forum junkie to another welcome Smile

I apologize for the belated welcome which can be blamed on the ice storm that blew through here and left me without electricity for two weeks.

Putting a link to your site in your signature is a good idea. Before the storm hit I was checking the stat logs to my site and found quite a few referrals from dremel.com.

If you post it they will come Smile

I just registered on your forum, so you may be seeing some contributions from me particularly in the PC repair section when I get caught up on my other forum activities.

If you are a true forum junkie, you may be interested to know of some other Dremel related sites. Facebook has at least two Dremel groups and then there is


on which I happen to be a moderator.

Again welcome and look forward to reading more of your posts.

My wife took our girls to her sister's house in Florida. I stayed with a relative that had radiant gas heat because work kept me from going to Florida.

Sounds like the wife and kid got the better end of that deal. Smile
