Cutting Drywall: Dremel Rotary Tool


Cutting Drywall Whether it’s for duct work or outlets
you can use your Dremel rotary tool to make cuts in drywall. For this demonstration we’ll be using a
Dremel 300 series tool, the 565 cutting guide attachment,
and a #560 Drywall bit. A Dremel 400 series XPR 200 or 100 series or 10.8 Volt Lithium Ion tool can
also be used for this project. Start by inserting the bit and
tightening. Then attach the cutting guide and adjust to match the depth of your
drywall. Set your tool toits highest speed
and plunge the bit into the drywall near the center of the shape you wish to cut. Then move to tool to the edge of the
area that needs cutting the bit has a guide that will help you
determine the edge of the box. In a counter clockwise motion continue your
cut. Pop out the remaining piece and clean
the edges. Here’s some more thoughts on cutting
drywall. Keep the surface of your cutting guide
flush to the drywall this will maintain the life of your bit. If the box you’ll be working near his
life make sure the power is shut off. The drywall bit will only work in
drywall but the multipurpose bit can also be used in drywall. To tell the difference the drywall bit
has a guide point on the end, the multipurpose bid has flutes which go
all the way to the end.
