Other Accessories You Can Use With The Dremel...

Whilst many of the accessories included with the Dremel kit are very useful - they are more aimed at the DIY market. We sell the following range of accessories for sanding, carving, engraving, cleaning and polishing metal which will lend themselves well to more specific aspects of jewellery making.

Polishing mops, wheels & points - are great for quickly polishing jewellery if you don't have a bench polisher. They are also perfect for getting into those awkward to polish shapes. Choose from bristle wheel, felt wheel, felt point, and soft polishing mop. Use with tripoli and rouge.

Silicone Polishers - these are impregnated with fast cutting silicone carbide abrasives for excellent polishing results. We stock these in wheel, knife edge and in cylinder shape which are available in four different grades for different levels of polishing. Use these with our mandrels for silicone polishers.

Burrs - burrs are used for adjusting stone setting depths, bezels, cutting grooves in metal and much more. Our best selling burrs are the stone setting burr and cup burr.

How To Polish Jewellery With Dremel 4000 Multi Tool

In this follow up from the video above, Cyrilyn shows you how easy it is to use polishing mops with jewellers rouge to bring your jewellery designs to a high shine.

Polishing Mops, Wheels & Points

These polishing mops, wheels and points are great for quickly polishing jewellery if you don't have a bench polisher and even if you do they are really useful for getting into those hard to reach places! These have a 2.3mm shank and will fit most hobby or pendant drills such as our Dremel 4000 Multi Tool where you will also require a multi chuck.

Choose from:

  • Bristle wheel: particularly good for very uneven surfaces as the bristles will reach into little nooks and crannies
  • Felt wheel natural wool: this one is best for flatter surfaces as the felt is sturdier and holds its shape during polishing
  • Felt point, natural wool: a really useful shape for polishing in hard to reach places, inside rings etc.
  • Soft polishing mop, natural wool: this is a good all-round mop – longer lasting than the bristle wheel but with more flexibility than the felt ones

ROUGE POLISH

This bar of rouge polish is perfect for achieving a mirror finish on metals. This polishing compound consists of minuscule abrasive particles all held together with a binder so it is less messy than using rouge powder.

Rouge is designed for final polishing so any scratches will need to be removed first; use wet and dry sanding sheets or sanding sticks to remove any deep marks and then use tripoli to prepare your surface before finishing with rouge for a sparkling finish.

Don’t forget, if you are using both compounds you will need separate mops for each as even a small amount of tripoli can contaminate your rouge and prevent you from creating a mirror finish.
