I have a 400 series XPR and would like to know if there is an attachment for cutting a wine bottle cork lengthwise so that when cut both pieces are evenly cut and the same size.

I would put the cork in the 2500-01 multi-vise, and use the fiberglass enforced 456 cut off wheel.  As far as cutting it perfectly and evenly, you will just have to eyeball it.

Dat's what I tink!

DON"T forget eye protection in this case. Glass slivers are bad.

You mentioned cutting a cork.  I think that the other two responders would know better, but you may want to be careful of the speed you use as some of the cutting wheels can cause burning.  If that is the case you may want to simply place the cork in a vice and use a coping saw, etc. to cut the cork.  Again, the other two know a lot more than I do (being a new Dremel owner myself) and burning may not be an issue.

Thanks,

Kurgan

I would just use a cork screw to remove it from the bottle, it's easier then cutting it in half! -jet

Actually, Kurgen, I do agree.  A coping saw is a great suggestion, and an excellent way to go in this case.  It may even be faster than using a Dremel.

Also, you are limited as to how deep you can cut with a cut off wheel.
