Does it cut tile, or have a tile bit you can purchase? I'm a plumber and frequently do shower valve replacements

Plumbing, tile cutting
Asked by: Audimac21
Hi Audimac21, yes this will cut tile with the proper bit. This can use cutoff wheels or get a tile bit and cut the section out. I like the RotoZip because of the power it has, however you do need a cord for that one.

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Rotary Tool (Tool-Only) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from M12 12-VOLT LITHIUM-ION CORDLESS ROTARY TOOL I was looking for a rotary cut off tool that was more powerful than my Dremel tool, but not as powerful as my 18v Makita grinder/cut off wheel Tool. I found that in this Milwaukee tool; I'ts not too large, it has plenty of power for medium / moderate cut off and grinding tasks. And, I really appreciate its refined design: It has a "soft" start up so as not to twist and torque itself in your hand - which I think is a significant safety feature; less fatigue on your wrist as well. It also has the M12 battery that can be used on many Milwaukee items. I will definitely consider other Milwaukee items in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Dremel Upgrade Picking the kit apart, the tool, battery, charger, cutoff wheels, and case are perfect. The collet and cutoff mandrel are pretty much junk. People describe numerous reasons why the tool vibrates so much (which it does), but it is all in the collet and mandrel. I through them out and bought Dremel replacements, and the problem went away. Anyway, the tool has 10x the power of my 3 corded Dremels combined. It is a lot bigger than them though, but this tool is meant to bridge the gap between Dremels and die grinders. It is a great tool to have.

It is a bit louder and dare I say has a bit more vibration than a Dremel. The chuck that came with the tool, a collet type, was a bit rough and didn't quite release easily, but I just used a Dremel branded collet and it works just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from M12 Rotary Tool 2460-20 This rotary tool is a great small grinder/cutter. There is a whole variety of attachments available (from a brand that rhymes with fennel). I use for sharpening tools, and for removing difficult nails or screws that cant be removed by conventional means. I hope Milwaukee will come out with their own more durable attachments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from M12 rotary tool They need a not sure option for recommendation. Not too surprising the rotary tool is a little short on power at the lowest speeds but has plenty of power on setting 3 and above. I am not sure what is going on yet but I have 3 other M12 tools and have had no problems with the batteries. On the rotary tool one battery will not stay in. It vibrates out and the tool stops. Another battery the clip that holds the battery in place broke. I do not know if this is a problem with the rotary tool or another problem. That is why I gave it 3 stars. I would have given it more except for the battery problem which may have nothing to do with the rotary tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HD: STOP PESTERING YOUR CUSTOMERS HD sent me an automated email at 6:15AM waking me up (my fault for having the phone beside the bed). Okay, HD, you demand a review, you got one. BTW, nice Dremel-like tool. Had a corded Dremel for years but wanted a cordless and already have some other M12 tools, standardizing around the battery pack.

This item was not available in my Home Depot store so I ordered it for store pick-up. It took a couple of weeks to get there, but the notification was prompt. I just was not sure when it would arrive.

I have not had a chance to use this tool a lot but it seems to have good power for a battery operated tool. I really like the portability. My only complaint is that it seems to vibrate more than my corded drill when the tool bit or accessory is slightly unbalanced.
