Spiral Cutting Bits (562)

For 'free' cutting in wall tiles (not floor tiles)


Product description

What can you do with it?
The 562 is designed to work on ceramic wall tile (tile suitable for use only on a wall), not for use on floor tiles. Best for cutting and drilling materials like ceramic wall tiles and mosaics

How to use?
We recommend to use this bit with the Dremel Tile Cutting Attachment, because it’s designed to help you maintain depth during the application. It’s important that the depth of the guide supports the cutting blade extending beyond the material by about 0.6 cm. (.25”). If the bit extends out too far beyond the material, it can be more difficult to control and can actually snap the bit.

Best control of the bit occurs when moving in a clockwise direction. Begin the cut at a 45 degree angle and then bring the accessory to 90 degrees.
The tool should be set at a high speed, the feed rate of the material or the tool through the material should be slow and gradual. Too much pressure will cause this accessory to get “red hot.”

Using the tip of the bit is not the best way to cut – we recommend using the sides of the bit, where the full cutting capacity of the fluting can be put to use.
