Properties of Dremel SM20-02
The Saw-Max allows for more depth of cut than a rotary tool and delivers three times the power of the highest-rated Dremel rotary tool. A better line of sight improves users’ ability to make precise, straight, and controlled cuts and its diverse system of cutting wheels adds even more flexibility to tackle the project at hand. Quick and easy to change out thanks to a shaft lock button, the various cutting wheels included in this kit offer the ability to make straight, plunge, and flush cuts and are able to cut through wood, plastic, metal, tile, plastic, and laminates. Also included are a dust extraction port, trigger lock-out, and variable-depth guide.
Develop a periodic maintenance schedule for your tool. When cleaning a tool be careful not to disassemble any portion of the tool since internal wires may be misplaced or pinched or safety guard return springs may be improperly mounted. Certain cleaning agents such as gasoline, carbon tetrachloride, ammonia, etc. may damage plastic parts. The versatile cutting system can be comfortably used for a variety of materials (wood, plastic, metal, tile, masonry).
The durability and power is taken care of by the worm drive. The salient feature of dust extraction port keeps the workplace clean and makes everything seem less messy and more organized. The second wheel position is recommended for flush – cutting. For flooring installation, add up the thickness of your flooring adhesive, the flooring itself, and any underlayments or other material that will add to the thickness of the finished floor.
The size and versatility of the Dremel SM20 make it an excellent option for making the plunge or interior cuts into a workpiece such as flooring, paneling, or siding. The Dremel SM846 chop saw attachment is intended for use when cutting cylindrical objects such as threaded rod, wire shelving, and wooden rods up to 1⁄2” in diameter. This attachment will help control your cut by using the support tabs to rest the material against while cutting in a chopping motion. When using the attachment to cut objects with larger diameters or when using the SM510 Metal Cutting wheel, you won’t always make it through the material with one cut. The SM510 Metal Cutting wheel will decrease in diameter as it’s used, reducing the cutting capacity. In these instances, you will need to make your first cut and then reposition your material to finish the cut. If you have little more budget than you can also try rotorazer circular saw.
