dremel stone polishing
The angle grinder is a very useful tool when it comes to DIY in the house. It can be used for cutting, polishing and sanding various materials, but it is typically used on metal or stone.
There are many different types of blade available for this tool, so how do you choose the correct one for the task at hand?
The types of blade available are designed to be used on different materials:
- Dry cutting disc: These are generally useful for cutting through bricks, stone and similar materials. The have smooth edge with indents going back to the centre of the disk every centimeter or so - these are for thermal expansion of the blade. They can also be used for rough cutting of tile in order to get the basic shape you require. Dry discs can easily chip or mark tiles, if a precise smooth cut is required use a wet cutting blade.
- Wet cutting disc: Normally used if a smooth, straight line is required. The blade edge is smooth all the way around the circumference, and this works best on ceramic tile, stone and marble. You need a wet saw to use one of these discs, but the end result is well worth it. Whatever you do, do not attempt to use an dry angle grinder with one hand while pouring water over the blade! I have seen many unfortunate 'accidents' happen to workers that used this method - instead, buy a proper wet angle grinder.
- Dry/ Wet cutting disc: A hybrid blade that is similar to the wet cutting disc, but is more suited to being used on larger pieces of masonry. The edges of this blade feature small channels that aid cutting. Again, a wet angle grinder is required.
What dremel tool is best for artists?
I'm looking to invest in a dremel rotary tool. Specifically for polishing and carving stone jewelry. However, I have no idea in the slightest what model I should be looking for.
Also, I'm new to the craft of jewelry making/stone carving, and any tips for a beginner would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
It doesn't matter, though I would recommend not to get one with a battery but one with a power cord. In my experience the batteries just don't provide as much power, particularly as the battery gets older. You may also want to look into flexshaft rotary tools, they are much more expensive, but give you more power and flexibility of manipulation and will be long term better (though not worth the extra cost if you don't know whether you stick with it for a hobby).
I have only very limited experience in jewelry for stones, but I can tell you that none of the attachments which come with your dremel tool will be suitable for stone carving. I also don't think there are many attachments which you can buy in a normal hardware store which will work for you. You'll need diamond burs, but you probably need to go look though a place like rio grande to find a variety of those. They also need to be lubricated during carving.
Before you buy anything I would recommend to read up on the methods used. A good book is supposed to be: Lapidary Carving for Creative Jewelry by Henry Hunt.
