If you think that it is powerful, try getting your hands on a real dremel. There is no way that that can even cut thin cardboard...

Yeah, I know the power of the real ones, for I own one myself. However, this thing is pretty strong, if can cut through wood it you take it slow. I like to use it for sharpening my pencils? I do know it is not even close to a small portion of the real ones, for I have cut solid steal with mine. It works on soda cans and such though.

very excited to try at home...

just wanna ask, how to make the blade mount? the image lil bit blurry :(

greets from Idn :D

ok first hammer down a bottle cap.get a small circular piece of rubber and poke a hole in the middle. fill the hole with glue and stick on the tip of the motor. then glue the bottle cap on the other end of the rubber circle. if u want, u can sharpen it.

also you should change the name of this project in "dremel-like diy cutter" or "
dremel-wannabe cutter"

nice. now make a circuit that controls the speed of the motor using a 555 timer and a power transistor and i think you should try lithium cells connected in series. it's gonna be really powerful

XLG has a good point, this is a very inventive project, I especially like your 2 penny switch

Dremel is a registered trademark and has copyright on the name.

What you have it as best a low powered rotary tool (this is the proper term).
Neat idea though.
