The Dremel 400 Series XPR System Offers Relief for Hard to Reach Jobs

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., January 30, 2006 — Whether drilling in a tight area, grinding rust off plumbing pipes or polishing an engine cylinder, professional tradesmen and home repair do-it-yourselfers know there’s nothing worse than being in a tight spot without the right tool. The Dremel 400 Series XPR offers a much-needed, flexible solution for the worker with little space.

“The performance of the Dremel XPR lets users tackle the jobs in tight quarters that they’ve been putting off,” said Andrea Ash, Dremel director of marketing communications. “The attachments were designed to give users flexibility and ease of use.”


Installing new PVC tubing may be difficult to perform due to space limitations. Previously, shaping the ends of meeting joints was only tackled with a small hacksaw or pipe cutter – tools that can take up space, and require a full 360 degrees of exposed pipe. Instead, installing and shaping such piping is made easy with the Dremel XPR MultiSaw. Remember, electric tools such as the 400 Series XPR should only be used for piping that has not been connected to a water supply and has not yet carried water.

To begin, draw a line around the exposed pipe to guide the desired cut. If the piping is PVC and requires deburring, use the #952 Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone accessory, which will help improve water flow in your new joints and create a tight seal.

For jobs in dimly lit places such as underneath a bathroom sink or inside an engine block, the Dremel FlexLite™ attachment can help light your way. With an LED light source at its tip, the attachment can be adjusted to a variety of positions providing added flexibility to get the job done quickly and easily.

Similarly, outdoor jobs such as trimming tree branches are easily handled with the XPR MultiSaw attachment. The XPR MultiSaw attachment allows users to trim small branches effortlessly without added motion or pressure. For hard to reach jobs, such as cleaning the rust from the nooks and crannies of outdoor iron railings, the #952 Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone accessory, again provides the flexibility users need.

When homeowners find themselves working in a low-lying surface or high in a tree, the Dremel XPR is the perfect tool to tackle tight spots around the house.
