Dremel Tools

For cutting or smoothing in tight spots, nothing quite beats a Dremel tool.

Dremel tool The most common unit is the Dremel 395D Variable-Speed MultiPro Tool which can vary from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM. Such high speeds can make short work of even tough jobs, such as cutting through stainless rigging wire.

Unless you've already got a bunch of accessories and are looking for a replacement tool, you're probably better off buying a kit, such as the 75-piece kit or 77-piece kit. These give you the tool and a bunch of different bits and accessories, such as cut-off wheels and sanding drums, the two things I use most on the boat.

For heavy-duty cutting, I like to use diamond wheels, which don't fly apart like the standard cutoff wheels.

It also describes the travails of the Aurora expedition, intended to lay the groundwork for Shackleton on the other side of the continent.
