We’re huge Dremel fans here at Toolmonger, and we’ve used their tools and accessories for all sorts of projects over the years — some we imagine Dremel intended, and some they’d probably never considered. In the last few years, though, Dremel’s really stepped up the innovation. Their latest: The EZ-Lock.
Remember what a pain it is (was) to install cut-off wheels and the like? It just got a lot easier. With the new EZ-Lock system you simply push and twist to install the wheel.
The system consists of a new mandrel with a specially-shaped tip. This new tip accepts the EZ-Lock accessories, which currently are mostly cutting and polishing tools. Heck, it’s pretty easy to understand from the picture alone.
Dremel sells a “starter kit” that includes a mandrel and five cutting wheels, and you can expand from there with all sorts of accessories — just like always with Dremel.
Street pricing for the kit starts around $12, and you can find them just about anywhere tools are sold.
