How to Replace the Sander Bands on a Dremel Tool


Sanding discs are available in coarse, medium and fine grits for the Dremel. You can use the sanding discs for model making and cabinetry. A drum is also available. The drum sander is good for shaping wood, smoothing glass, sanding inside curves and other tricky sanding. Sanding bands fit onto the drum and are available in fine 120-grit and coarse 60-grit grades only. The kit comes with one-half inch diameter drum on a 1/8-inch shank. A ¼-inch shank is also available. The 3/8-inch, ¼-inch and 1-inch diameter bands are optionally available.

  • Loosen the screw at the end of the drum sander tool. This will contract the drum.
