In the previous article we discussed about cutting and drilling tools for DIY works. Tools For DIY Electronics & Electrical Projects is a Need To Build Enclosures and Other Practical Things. We have a guide on how to build enclosure like things.
Why Rotary Tools For DIY Electronics Projects?
As because we use some kind of development boards like Raspberry Pi alternatives, to build things like DIY UMPC/PDA to various things with Arduino or DIY robotics, we need some sort to enclosures, commonly they are of custom shape and size. These rotary tools helps to cut, grind, sharpen, engrave the metal to wooden, plastic plates and blocks.
Most commonly peoples ask – why we can not use the same hand drill as rotary tool? The advantage of a rotary tool is 25,000 to 35,000 RPM high speed, low electricity consumption and smaller size which allows to use like pen. Drills are for drilling holes, but these are for precise grinding, cutting, drilling very small things. They have high speed low torque, and is great for detail work and cutting thin sheets of metal for example. A drill is the opposite – lower speed higher torque. If you are struggling with the budget, it is possible to put these bits in a drill while you save up for the proper tool.
Rotary Tools For DIY Electronics & Electrical Projects
Sadly not many companies have ideal Rotary Tools with available after service. Bosch-Dremel 4000/Dremel 4000 and 7700 possibly an ideal example of Rotary Tools For DIY works. But it is underpowered, costs too much than it should and peoples do complain of fall of quality at recent times – motor simply blows away. At worst, they have no service at many countries. Black & Decker RTX-B costs lesser but they have no service at many countries. Dewalt Die Grinder and Bosch GGS 3000 Straight Grinder has everything great but cost are higher. Options are very less if you have a drill and/screwdriver. We thin, you can read about this guide to create DIY rotary tool :
Among the other ways, Bosh angle grinders costs lesser at entry level, but RPM is around 11000. Just half. There is angle grinder drill chuck adapters.
Among the other ways, home mixer grinder from kitchen has RPM up to 25000 in some models with very high torque. You need to take lethe service to make an adapter or coupler for mixer grinder shaft to drill chuck.
Third party accessories, assortments are available everywhere on online shops.
