Quick question: Can you dremel PETG without the PETG cracking? I am having some problems with b00m13's Clipped Nitefinder with cutting slots into PETG without it cracking.

You might want to try lower speeds.
What bit are you using?

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

Use the lowest speed with a reinforced cut-off wheel. If you're impatient and want to go faster, take a scrap piece of PETG to test on and jack up the speed until it cracks, then use one setting lower as your standard.

Well I was just wondering if a dremel could cut slots into PETG. I don't actually own a dremel but I may get one soon.
