Most projects in the workshop produce a large amount of dust and debris. From wood to drywall, it seems there is a fine, powdery mess that gets everywhere! Dremel and Rotozip both offer great solutions to workplace mess: the Dremel VRT1, a vacuum-powered rotary tool that cleans debris while in operation, and the Rotozip RotoSaw+ with Dust Vault Attachment, a fully integrated system that runs off of the tool’s motor and collects dust as you work.
The Dremel VRT1 is a dustless rotary tool that “cuts out the cleanup” by connecting to a standard shop vacuum. As the Dremel VRT1 works, it eliminates associated airborne dust and debris from drywall, wood, glass, ceramic, Styrofoam and a variety of similar dust-producing materials. The VRT1 can be used with sanding, polishing, carving, drilling and engraving accessories to complete these applications and more. The Dremel VRT1 increases project efficiency because there is no need to stop to clean up debris – cleanup is happening while using the tool. The Dremel VRT1 has a suggested retail price of $29.99 and is available online at Amazon.com and in store and online at Lowe’s.
As a fully integrated system that runs off of the tool’s motor, the Rotozip RotoSaw+ with Dust Vault Attachment combines the same power and performance of a spiral saw without the need of a vacuum. It traps 90% of airborne dust. The Rotozip RotoSaw+ with Dust Vault Attachment combo system eliminates the need for a vacuum, making it ideal for quick, convenient use in finished spaces. The Rotozip RotoSaw+ with Dust Vault Attachment is available as a kit for $99.00, and $29.99 for the Dust Vault Attachment only. RotoSaw+ with Dust Vault Attachment is available online at Amazon.com, and online and in store at Lowe’s and Home Depot. The Dust Vault Attachment is available at Amazon.com and HomeDepot.com and online and in store at Lowe’s.
