The two drywall cutting bits included in this kit are ideal for cutting holes for electrical boxes, air vents and various other "hole-in-the-wall" projects. Use the multipurpose bit to cut ... well, just about anything else.

FEATURES
- Cutting Guide Attachment keeps bits at proper angle at all time and helps guide cutting path.
- Easily attaches to corded rotary tools and the new 9.6V Cordless MultiPro® in place of the housing cap.
- Easy depth adjustment – up to 19mm cutting depth.




does it cut metal?

Um - "drywall" refers to gyprock and other plasterboards used for walls in houses - So, no

Also, if its the kit Im thinking ( http://au.dremel.com/productdisplay/att_template.asp?SKU=565&Color=99CCFF ) - No



Im off to the site now to find the model number of the fibre reinforced metal cut off wheels they have - brb


EDIT:

Cut off wheel 426 - Has fibre in it to help stop it from shattering

sorry to be on a high horse but it say

Use the multipurpose bit to cut ... well, just about anything else.

also if i go into the FAQ

Multipurpose Cutter
The multipurpose cutting bit prepares an area for light fixtures and ceiling fans and makes cutouts in cabinets, paneling and fiberglass. It can cut wood, plastic, fiberglass, drywall, laminate, aluminum and vinyl siding.

Start at a 45-degree angle when plunging into a piece of material.

These bits should be used with the Cutting Guide Attachment.

all i want to cut is problably aluminium

What high horse? Your right man


The fact is at the end of the day, those "drill bit style" cutters arnt crash hot, but work well in situations where you dont have access to the other side of the soft material your cutting, such as walls

If you want to cut metal, yeah sure you *could* use one of those, but there are faster, cheaper, safer, and cleaner options out there available to you, such as the cut off wheels I mentioned

Those things can be hard to control (Due to high speed rotation wanting to send it everywhere, unless you have guides), and the drill bits themselves are prone to breaking when using them in hard materials, and are not forgiving - Plus, due to high speed, the size of the bit, and metal, you want to go really slow so you dont burn your bit out, or use some cutting lube as well


You asked if it could do metal - No, wouldnt even bother trying. Even for al - There are far better ways to go about it

What are you trying to cut?

Or were you just checking that item out?



Plus - You know, if you own a Dremel, you must get a flex shaft for it too ;)

Did I miss the Pony Express?

If you want to cut metal and not have to dick around, get the reinforced wheels. They last longer and generally do a better job.

They are not cheap no, but once you go through a pack of cheapies you are pretty much on the same level.

Yeah think last I paid was 20 for 5, and I went through 3 of them on one full window (Including one shatter cause I was rushing a corner) - Good value, plus dont shatter easily like cheap ones

Have started using the Dremel again more now - For my WH40K models though

i used one of those drill cutters to start off the engraving for my case legs.

i wouldn't recommend it, it nearly caught fire at one stage.

bunnings had a "cheap" case pack of lots of bits for dremels, clear front with an orange back that folded out like a stand.. 10 bucks for the lot..best bit was theres a 10 pack of the reinforced wheels in it,can throw the rest and still come out in front, as good as the "dremel" branded ones too...
