I used this bit to cut holes into my Home Depot 5gal buckets for an aquaponic system that I am setting up. It cut though the material like a hot knife through butter, and I could not be happier with the results.

Became Dull Extremely Fast
I used 2 of these brand new bits to try and cut through 3/4" (1/2"+1/4") of old drywal a 12"x12" square holel. I set my Dremel to 15k RPM. One bit snapped off after the first 12" and the other bit it are the bit down to half its thickness. There were no nails or anything I was hitting either.

    Bit did exactly what I bought it for, cut some MDF! Used in a cheaper Dremel tool with a hole cutting attachment to make some 4" holes for speakers, this bit cut like a hot knife through butter. Hope it lasts a while, but I'd buy again for the price. Hope this helps!

      Technical question
      I bought this because it fits the collet on my Zmorph CNC router. I wanted to know if this bit is capable being used in a light CNC capacity? I would be making shallow passes in wood. The spindle speed and other specs look good, just not sure about the tip of the 561. Thanks
