Bought to modify door lock striker pockets. Worked great for enlarging or re-shaping pockets where lock bolts don't line up properly. Use a slower speed if your tool motor is variable.

I used it to cut a groove in my cabinet doors to inlay copper wire and it worked great although I needed to use a drill but for pilot holes in some areas because it was not designed for drilling downward.

Great Bits
I've recently started refreshing some parts of my house. The house was built in 1948 and is overbuilt so I've had to be open to some non-standard methods to get this done. These bits have been a big help. I've been able to carve out very tough old wood when needed. They have never let me down. Dremel has provided me this product in exchange for an honest review.

    Works great with a plunge router
    I used this with my plunge router attachment for my Dremel. It worked as I expected it to.

      LONG Lasting Bit and Cutter!
      The Dremel High Performance Speed Cutter works as advertised. My Dremel is one of the handiest tools I own and I have many different bits I se for various projects. I know many people use them for carving wood, but I’ve also used them for glass, plastics, and metals. I recently had a small project that had some very hard plastic parts. One of them was fitting properly, so having recently received this bit, I put it to work. Within minutes I was able to easily trim the piece I was working on with ease and precision. It worked perfectly! Dremel has provided me this product in exchange for an honest review.

        Stays Sharp
        After using the Dremel High Performance High Speed cutter on two different woods and carving projects, it remained sharp as new and is ready to tackle more. However, like any similar bit, it leaves quite a bit of fuzz in basswood, but can be cleaned up easily by tilting the bit or using sand paper. These work really well for smaller projects, but I wouldn’t suggest trying to hog off a lot of wood on a larger carving. I was able to clean up and cut custom grooves in the back of a turkey plaque with ease and I feel these bits are a step up from Dremel’s others and are worth adding to your arsenal.

          Dremel Provided Me The Max Life Cutting Wheel To Provide An Honest Review
          I used the Dremel High Performance 194 High Speed Cutter with both the Dremel Rotary Tool and the Rotary Tool attached to Dremels Plunge Router to attempt a more intricate cut into wood. In both instances I wanted to see if 194 Cutter bit into the wood I used and in both soft and hard woods, it performed smoothly with both the Dremel Rotary Tool and used with the Dremel Plunge Router. I use the Dremel 4486 Keyless Chuck with my Rotary Tool unless using Dremel's Plunge Router and the majority of my 28 years using every type of Dremel Rotary Tool has involved working with wood.

            More Than Meets The Eye
            When Dremel sent me these to evaluate I had never done any carving. But, what the heck, I decided to see how they work. I took a scrap piece of 2x4 and played with them. Althpouth they look like just round bits, I found that be varying the angle I could achieve quite a few different effects. Although I doubt I will use them to carve decoys, I will use them to do some fine shaping when I build my wooden model boats.

              Great bit
              These cutting/carving bits work very well. They make easy work in most materials I use. For an exacting cut, this is the way to go. Dremel has provided me this product in exchange for an honest review.

                WOW I love clean cuts
                Dremel has provided me this product in exchange for an honest review. So here goes. As an artist I do inlays and the one I used so far did not disappoint at all. It provided nice clean cuts. I use it with the Dremel 335-01 Rotary Tool Plunge Router Attachment it preformed very well.

                  Great General Carving Bits
                  Just to put it out there, Dremel has provided me this product in exchange for an honest review. I gave these bits a good test on some hard Maple as well as some Basswood and Cherry. I also tried them out on some PVC plastic and Copper pipe. There's a recommended speed guide included in the package with the bits. I used those approximate speed ranges and didn't have any issues with melting plastic or burning of the wood. The TiN coating is a nice added benefit to help make the bits stay sharp longer. I used one for quite a while carving some wood with no signs of dulling. I would have expected to see it begin to burn sooner but it just kept working along without slowing down. One nice feature of this bit is the cutter extends out onto the end. So a plunge cut is possible straight into whatever your carving. I'd highly recommend these for your next wood carving or detailing project.

                    Makes detail carving quick and easy.
                    I needed a wood carving project to check out the new Max Life, titanium coated high speed 1/8 inch cutter. I needed project not too complex. My wife suggested that I duplicate a doll’s leg for her. One leg was missing from and old wooden carved doll she found at a flea market. I had the appropriate sized dowels on hand plus the Dremel 192 cutter heads, so I got on with the project! Used the cutter head to notch out and rough out the jointed legs. Also used the Max Life metal cutting wheel to rough out the shoe! The 192 handled the delicate cutting well. I would definitely purchase these cutting bits in the future.

                        long lasting bit
                        These TiN cutters do last and stay sharp. I have used to cut a notch for wire in the back of about 125ft of baseboard and worked great beginning to end. I do't know when I will even have to use the second one in the package because this one is still running like brand new. Dremel has provided me this product in exchange for an honest review.
