<div class="bbWrapper">...SAFETY FIRST! Thankfully I was wearing eye protection but I still got my cheek grazed by a piece of the cut off wheel on my Dremel. It shattered while I was trimming down some acrylic for a TacPad screen.<br /> <br /> Just a friendly reminder to our Recruits to always practice good safety measures so you don't hurt yourself while building!<br /> <br /> Edit: Buy this instead!

<div class="bbWrapper">An even better tip would be not to use those flimsy death traps. <br /> <br /> Fiberglass reinforced wheels are the way to go or invest in one of the carbide wheels.</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">I use the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Dremel-545D-545-Diamond-Wheel/dp/B00004UDI9" target="_blank" class="link link--external" rel="nofollow noopener">Diamond Wheel</a> to cut my pieces. A bit expensive for one single bit but its worth it, IMO. Supposedly it never breaks!</div>

<div class="bbWrapper">I was able to get a canister of 36 for $1 so I was all about it haha! But I went out and bought the diamond wheel afterwards because flying shrapnel is a huge no-no, lol.</div>
