Dremel offers a variety of rotary tool bits designed for grinding metal. The specific bit you choose depends on the type of metal you're working with and the desired outcome. Here are some commonly used Dremel bits for grinding metal:

  1. Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone (Dremel 952):

    • Suitable for general purpose grinding of various metals, including ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
  2. Silicon Carbide Grinding Stone (Dremel 85422):

    • Effective for grinding, engraving, and carving hard metals, such as steel, cast iron, and other ferrous metals.
  3. Grinding Wheels (Dremel 541, 84922, 547GR):

    • Different grinding wheels are available for various applications, including metal. They come in different shapes and sizes, providing versatility for different metal grinding tasks.
  4. Diamond Wheel Points (Dremel 7103, 7105, 7144):

    • These are suitable for grinding and engraving hard metals, such as steel, carbide, and nickel alloys.
  5. High-Speed Cutter (Dremel 196):

    • Ideal for shaping, hollowing, grooving, slotting, and making tapered holes in soft metals like aluminum, brass, and copper.

Before selecting a bit, consider the hardness of the metal, the precision required, and the specific grinding task you need to perform. It's advisable to refer to Dremel's official website or product documentation for detailed information on each bit's applications and compatibility with different metals.

Always follow safety guidelines, wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and use the recommended speed settings for your Dremel tool when grinding metal. If you have specific metalworking requirements, consulting Dremel's customer support or seeking advice from metalworking forums can provide additional insights.
