Will a dremel bit on a drill cut wood?

So I’m doing a little woodworking project over summer with some friends, we have all of the lumber and tools necessary, but we’re still missing the most important tool we need, a dremel.

We tried looking online but no where near-by has a dremel for rent and we don’t want to spend $100 buying one.

Here on Yahoo awnsers, I saw there was a question about a dremel bit being used on a drill so here’s my question:

If you put a dremel bit into a drill, will it be able to cut throught wood?

The other question said it would’nt be able to cut metal, but nothing about wood, so anyone got anything?
The wood being cut is a 1/2 inch plywood

Dusty answers:

It will cut, but at a slower speed, so make sure you clean the bit often when cutting because the cut material will build up on the bit edge..

What tool should I buy my husband?

I recently suggested to my husband that when birthdays and anniversaries come up, I will start buying him a tool for each. He loved this idea since he is a fairly handy person, but it seems like every time we go to do a project, he borrows tools to do it. It always turns out that he would have to buy two or three tools at a time to complete a project, and we can’t afford that many at once. So my question is, which tools could you not live without? He already has a drill and a circular saw. I’m pretty sure that’s all the power tools he has. In what order should I buy him the tools so that he gets the most use out of them?

PS He does mostly DIY jobs around the house like shelf building (pantry shelves – nothing fancy), painting, tiling. I think he wouldn’t mind getting into a little woodworking.

Lisa asks…

Powering my workshop?

I have a workshop in my basement for woodworking that runs a lot of power tools. Is there any way I could make it more energy efficient or cost less? I just currently use the electrical power provided by the power company.

Dusty answers:

You could look into solar or wind power attached to the grid and see what credits or incentives are avilable for those. You could use a generator or battery-powered tools. Power tools usually require a lot of power, so regular electricity may be your only hope, sorry. You could look at it from the other side and make sure your projects are cost-effective, as in, do projects that will make the most money for you.

John asks…

Can moisture meters be used to detect pipe leaks in a house?

Many that I have seen in online stores have these pins and I think they are mostly used to measure the moisture of wood for woodworking projects. But I’m interested in detecting leaks behind walls. Any recommendations for what tool I need?

Dusty answers:

Don’t thing that will be necessary but in case a leaky pipe inside the wall visible sign of wet wall is the indication unless the hole is pin hole which will increase given some time hope this will assist.
