Answer: 
It comes with one cutting bit. But it is compatible other Dremel cutting bits as well. I used both of them and all worked ok. The bit is not depending on this tool. Bits are should be compatible with Dremels, not with this cutter.

Answer: 
Team Dremel,
Your answer was just a detailed "no".
Instead, what we would like to know is what bit, if any. could someone purchase to cut 3/4' wood with this accessory?
Thank you.

Answer: 
I Have not tired thin aluminum sheets yet, but it should be ok. I tried it for 1/2" wood, 1/4" acrylic and 1/8" PVC plates. All worked fine, but you may need some exercise first. Just take your time, slowly.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile tool but poor assembly quality I had to fix the circle cutter attachment before using as one of the 2 screws connecting the plastic and metal pieces was only partially installed due to a stripped out head in the screw. This was preventing the flush connection of the 2 pieces and would have resulted in on oblong circle. I was able to use it to precisely cut holes for flush mounting speakers in fiberglass. I have not used the edge guide yet. April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job One thing to do. Add a lock washer to the adjustment knob screw to keep your setting during use. September 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it says. The circle cutter is fine for light use. Be gentle with it! But it is very inexpensive and probably fits most users. To improve it (and increase the cost) would be a redesign. For example, the scale is an approximation. The distance could be measured from either the inside edge or outside edge (of the cutting bit) obviously changes the settings. The actual diameter (for me) was an approximation cut followed by little fudges and trial and error. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not great but decent Did cut a circle but kinda rough edge, need alot of sanding after cut August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A handy tool Very easy to deal with any circles or straight line-cuts with limits of sizes. Price I payed through online order is fair for this functionality. However, from the day one, the inner plastic part was broken where the bolt is tightening to keep the steady height. It is not thick plastic, and they should put a metal plate to make it strong against the bolt. Therefore, there is an issue on design, but the idea is good. I am pretty sure most DIYers know what it is and some of them already made it by themselves. Once they have this minor issue resolved without increasing sale price, then it would be great tool for small hobby guys. Overall, I recommend it for a short period of time with light duty works. But, eventually, I will make real larger ones with metal components for my dremel and router as well. June 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not for precision holes The tolerances in this tool are too large to make precision circles. The dremel wobbles around in the mount causing irregular circles. This makes it unsuitable for instrument building or inlay work. July 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good product when used sensibly I bought this tool to cut app. 2-inch to 12-inch arcs and circles in quarter-inch acrylic. I started cutting with the 561 Multipurpose cutting bit that came with the kit. Trying to make a single cut proved impossible, as the bit chattered too much. But by backing off and making 3-4 passes of increasing depth, I ended up with clean cuts. A router bit may also work better. Acrylic is not like wood, it has a tendency to melt and gum up the works if you push it too hard, so you have to be slow and careful. But I am very satisfied with the results. November 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the job! Used it to put a circle in a cooler to make an insulated feral cat Winter house as I saw on YouTube, and it did the job. Price was great too. March 1, 2016
