We installed new paneling in the basement--because the walls are a bit wonky, the paneling sticks out in the doorway about 1/4". We are looking for a tool or attachment for the Dremel that will trim it without chewing up the paneling. We also need to cut out around an electric outlet a bit more than we did. Any chance this is what we are looking for?
Asked by: Sallie
Yes, the bit is designed to work with items/projects like you're describing.

1/8 in. Multi-Purpose Rotary Tool Cutting Bit for Wood, Plastic, Fiberglass, Drywall, Aluminum, and Vinyl Siding is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boo! Was so excited to buy a Dremel and use this attachment to cut through wainscotting, and not a thick piece at all, to make a wall socket hole. Terribly hard to control! It veers all over the place and straight lines are impossible. I’ve looked for a video to see what I’m doing wrong. It would be great if HD provided such things as a demonstration video.

Ended up using the bit Ryobi sent with their rotary tool I bought. Cut and hung 175 sheets of drywall and Ryobi bit still going strong. Dremel bit was too brittle. Disappointed.

Tried using to cut moon shaped holes in gourds for Purple Martin houses, but is very difficult to control. it grabs and sort of goes all over the place. Impossible to cut a nice smooth line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexan or Lucite projects on your bucket list? I'm all the time tinkering and modifying my gold prospecting hobby equipment. Love using Lucite for my builds. This bit is the ONLY way to cut lucite and have it not shatter. Buy more than one, because you'll always be misplacing this bit if you only have one.
