    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS MACHINE IF YOUR GROUT? JOINT IS SMALLER THAN 1/8. BITS BRAKE PRETTY EASY (they just dont wear as they say), AND THEY COST $10 to $15.

    Thanks. If one bit can’t do a shower what’s the use? For the 1/8 space should i use those claw-like hand tools with the sharp point? Are they called grout? removers?

    I had a dremel tool and bought the grout attachment. One bit broke so I bought another. Than the machine overheated and that was the end of my dremel tool. For a short time I had it on the wrong speed but most of the time it was on? the right speed.I think what happened is the grout on the surface was 1/8 wide but underneath the tile was closer so I was actually grinding tile with the tool. At any rate I then used a hand tool it worked just fine.

    I bought the Nikota rotary tool with the flexible attachment and the? hanger stand and it is a much better tool than the dremel could ever hope to be.

    the glaze on glazed ceramic tile? will ping off..therefore useless..the time taken to do a whole bathroom/showerroom at that speed..c,mon think bout it..

    my attempt to remove floor tile grout with a dremel 200 and the tiny bit supplied with the grout removal kit was a horrible experience.? 10 minutes of labor removed about 5 inches of grout and left my dremel unit smoking. there must be a better way.

    i used my at 35000 rpm and eventually? the bit broke but i think beacouse it was to much heat buy i have removed grout from 2-3 squre meters

    I’ve found that the use of water (I use a spray bottle to flood the bit area) will extend the life of these cutting tools by orders of? magnitude, so much so that I would never even think of doing any dry cutting. WTF, what tile saw works without using water, or machinist that wouldn’t use oil to cut metal? This is your problem, my bit cut through the grout like it was butter. Yeah, this video? should mention using a lubricant, maybe they just want to sell bits?
