Simply attach the Multi Chuck to your Dremel Tool and using one of the diamond drill bits or diamond core drills start drilling and create something beautiful. Always remember to:
- Use diamond drill bits wet to ensure cleaner cutting, and preserve the life of your drill bit
- Set your Dremel Multi Tool to the lowest speed setting
- Use very little pressure
- Always use protective eye wear and a mask

Some helpful notes and possible queries about the contents of your kit:
There are two Dremel attachments that can be used to hold these small diamond drill bits, the Dremel Multi Chuck 4486 which you have in your set, and the Dremel Collet Nut Kit4485. We have chosen the Multi Chuck for you as it is very popular when using drill bits and attachments that have different shanks (the end that goes into your rotary tool, not the drilling bit end) as it is easy to change between drill bits. Simply twist to open the teeth on the chuck and release or tighten in the new drill bit.
The Dremel Multi Chuck 4486 will fit all Dremel Drills except Model 4200.
Your set has two popular sizes of Small Diamond Drill Bits: 1mm and 1.5mm and two popular sizes of small diamond core drills: 2mm and 3mm. These sizes have been chosen as they are ideal for most jewellery making purposes when you need to make a hole in hard materials. All these drill bits and more can also be bought by clicking here.
The small diamond drill bits have a solid end and the small diamond core drills have a hollow core running through the drill bit. This core allows water to swirl up and around the core to keep the drill bit cool and they are particularly good for those extra tough pieces of sea glass, fused glass or stones. They have a smaller surface area than the small diamond drill bits so may not last as long but are equally good at drilling your holes.
