what are you using to cut?

i found a dremel with a drill bit worked best for the short vertical cut

You guys do know that the rotozip drill/cutting bits fit dremel just fine and are much less expensive, right?

Ahhh, but the rotozip and dremel bits are designed for rotary cutting whereas a regular drill bit is meant for plunging. It'* amazing what using the right tool for the job will do

Incidentally, dremel bits work just fine in a Rotozip too which is great since Dremel has a more varied selection.
