    As the title says, I finally got a Dremel and tested it out on a left-over custom that needed it. Turns out, the drilly/cutty bits (I'm horrible with actual terms) are much "wider?" than I thought... According to the packaging, it's 1/8th-inch.... Anyone have any links to smaller/better ones? Maybe preferred brands as well? The ones I'm using are "Hyper Tough" found at Walmart. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Any luck finding anything? If you have a Lowe's or Home Depot where you live you should be able to get the Dremel brand accessories for your rotary tool. Thos should be fine for what you're doing.

    Dremel actually sells a set of tiny drills. Somewhat pricey, but quite perfect.
    You could also do an Amazon search for micro drill bits.

    Nope, but to be fair I've been quite busy with life stuff...
    Hmm.... I knew a few Home depot locations. I'll check them when I can. Thanks!
    .....why did Amazon escape my mind? Thanks, buddy! Now I just have to remember to check the site when I get home.

    I'd recommend this set, it has a good variety of sizes.

    And get a keyless chuck, it'll make life alot easier

    Minor Update. Decided to try and hunt some cheaper ones....turns out they are extremely small.... So i'm just going to trust @DarkProwler and order those now. Thanks everyone!
