The most useful Dremel accessory available.
on 26 September 2014
I have owned a couple of Dremels and have a lot of accessories. This flexible shaft is probably the single most useful accessory that I have, and it lives almost permanently on my Dremel.
To start with, it makes holding the Dremel much easier, especially if you need to use it for prolonged periods. It is small enough to hold like a pen, making detailed work like engraving far easier and more controlled. It also has a chuck locking button on it, so that you can dispense with the little spanner when changing tools - just press the button to lock the chuck in place, and then with your other hand you just unscrew the chuck - simples! The small size of the handpiece also means that it is far easier to work in small spaces and at awkward angles, and I find myself using the Dremel to do jobs that I would never have even considered attempting without the flexible shaft. Recently I was trying to remove some old central heating copper pipes from under the floor boards, but could not get anything into the gap to cut the pipe. Even my standard plumbers pipe cutter (tiny version) was too bulky to rotate all the way around the pipe. Step forward the Dremel with flexible shaft and cutting disk - I was able to get this under the boards, along side the pipe and it was cut in seconds. I highly recommend this product to all Dremel owners
