Recommended Dremel speeds for artists
I’m frequently asked about the Dremel speed one should use on a particular material. It’s tough for me to know all of the possible accessory/speed/material combinations, as I haven’t tried them all.
Thankfully, I found an excellent resource that holds the answers – a series of charts that includes the recommended speed settings for specific Dremel bits when in use with specific materials (aluminum, brass, ceramic, copper, glass, hardwood, plastic, shell, softwood, steel, and stone).
Behold the awesomeness of these charts:
- Carving and engraving accessories
- Cleaning and polishing accessories
- Cutting accessories
- Drill bits
- Grinding and sharpening accessories
- Sanding accessories
I hope you find them helpful!
