Default dremel question

so im cutting into my tails. the dremel tool wont reach all the way into the crack between lights. is there and extension or something i can buy to cut into it? i dont see how to get the dremel tool in there, even with the engraving bit as far out as possible and a new chuck to allow me to pull it further out. suggestions?

flexable neck or whatever its technicly called...

its a flex shaft that you attach to teh end of the dremal and it has a chuck at the end of it. about 3 feet long and flxable (hence the name)

found a pic (worth a thousand words they say...)

There are other bits as well...

When I crack open the 96-99 lights I use a carbide tipped wheel...and other things..gotta experiment. Hit up Walmart and look at what will work.

the other bits arent longer and they are thicker. makes the hole too wide too fill easily.

Ok..let me step back and get an understanding of what you are trying to accomplish.

I thought you wanted to cut the tail open, but it sounds like you are making holes. Please tell us what you are trying to do and we can recommend from there.

im slicing it open around the amber portion so that i can pull the amber out. but that means when i put it back together, i have to fill up whatever i cut out to make it come apart. (was using non-reinforced cutting blade to minimize the amount cut out, btw).

as much fun as randomly putting holes in my tails sound, i cant really see what that would accomplish. but if itd accomplish something, let me know.

Holes in tails can be fun....lets see, you can put some strobes in there and use them as hazard blinkers or you can put in brighter bulbs and use the hole as a heat vent so as not to melt your tails, tons of fun can be had by drilling holes in your tails

Kidding of course, but the strobes would be cool and probably VERY much illegal

Ok..I used a carbide cutting wheel which was thin and larger diameter than the standard cutting discs.
