    How many folks are using a Dremel Multi-tool or similar for fine cleaning and polishing of cuts?
    What are the best accessories (part numbers) do you find that are invaluable for your work in finishing your projects.

    I do use those sanding drums but most often just a square of 80 or 120 grit sandpaper glued to a piece of insulation foam. This will very quickly smooth off any fuzzy edges and also removes tabs nicely.

    It can be too easy to take off just that little too much sometimes. :banghead:

    And a slightly unsteady hand (not enough/too much coffee - or other refreshment :D) can spell disaster! :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:.

    I use sandpaper and files to clean up the projects.
