When you buy the common tool shop rotary tool you need, you should carefully consider the type of work you want to do and how a rotary tool can assist. When choosing a rotary tool, you can consider the following aspects:


The roto cutter tool can be driven by pneumatic or electricity, and the rotary tool driven by pneumatic is generally used for some heavy professional tasks. Generally speaking, the rotary tool refers to some electronic tools with relatively light weight and wide application.


Rotary tools can be corded or cordless, and they are powered by rechargeable battery packs. Corded grinder rotary tools can reach speeds up to 35,000 rotations per minute (rpm), while cordless rotary tools typically only reach up to 15,000-rpm.  



Generally speaking, many expensive rotary tools can adjust the rotating speed, while cheaper mini rotary tool sates often have only a fixed speed. When you are ready to use a rotary tool for a long time, you should choose a rotary tool that can be replaced after the motor brush is worn. The most common rotary tool has a simple drill bit. Different accessories can be installed, which can be used for different types of work. In order to ensure that there are enough accessories for different tasks, you can consider buying a rotary tool kit, which generally contains some common rotary tool accessories.



Choose the right rotary tool bits:


Rotary tools accomplish different tasks by using the correct rotary tool bit, so long as the mini rotary tool kit has the same size, they can be replaced:


1. Carving and engraving: high speed cutters, engraving cutters, carbide cutters, diamond wheel points and sanding drums 


2. Routing: router bits, including straight router bits, keyhole router bits, corner router bits and groove router bits 


3. Drilling: rotary tool drill bits 


4. Polishing: polish points or cones, sharpening wheels and sanding drums 



How to cut with a rotary tool?


Rotary tools are very good for fine cutting. If you want to finish a long and straight cut, you should choose different types of saws, because they are all freehand when cutting with saw blade rotary tools:


1. For cutting drywall, wood, plasterboard or other light materials, use a straight router bit. 


2. For cutting metal or plastic, use a cutting wheel bit. 


3. For cutting thicker metal and other tough materials, use a carbide cutter. 


4. Draw an outline on the material to follow while cutting. 


5. Cutting may take several passes, especially for thicker materials. 


6. When cutting metal, use cutting oil to decrease friction and thus reduce the amount of heat generated from the tool. 



How to carve with a rotary tool?


Mini brushless rotary tool can provide fine control, so they are very suitable for engraving and etching. Rotary tools is often used to do some fine work and make wooden cabinets and furniture.


1. Carbide rotary bits and router bits are the go-to bits for carving and etching.


2. If while carving you notice smoke or discoloration of the material, then lower the speed setting. 


3.If the rotary tool’s motor slows, stutters or makes an unusual grinding noise, then you should ease up on the carving material.

How to sand or polish with a rotary tool?


Rotary tools can not only become very hard to sharpen the knife, but also polish the jewelry very gently. You can even use low-speed rotary ratchet tool to sort out pet nails.


1. For sanding or filing projects, use a sanding drum bit. Sanding drum bits come in a range of coarseness. Coarser bits are better suited for sanding tough materials, while softer bits are made for gentler, finer sanding jobs.  


2. When polishing, use a wire brush, polishing point or polishing wheel with a wax or polishing compound. 


3. Start at a low speed and work up to a medium speed as needed. 


4. For big jobs, move from coarser bits to softer bits.
