Make a Mini Rotary Tool from a Bottle Cap

 |  |  |  |  March 7, 2016

This is a simple build that uses a small motor, a 9 volt battery, a switch, some electrical tape and hot glue. The cutting wheel is made from a bottle cap and a pen refill. It will even cut through soft woods like balsa. You can learn how to build your own from the video from Mr. Gear below:

Even if you already have a Dremel, this looks like a fun project to do. Just remember to be safe and wear some goggles and keep your appendages away from the blade. You are spinning a sharp bottle cap after all, even if it is just powered by a 9-volt battery.
