About Dremel: A History of Brilliance and Innovation
Founded in 1932 in Racine, Wisconsin, Dremel is the industry leader in rotary tools. The company owes its success to the inventive genius of its founder and namesake, Albert J. Dremel. In his lifetime, Mr. Dremel owned 55 patents on a wide range of products from electric erasers to a gas-powered rotary lawn mower. His most famous and important invention was a high-speed rotary tool, dubbed the Dremel Moto-Tool. Compact, lightweight, and perfect for a wide range of jobs, the rotary tool was an immediate hit with hobbyists and eventually became accepted as one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. Today, the Dremel name remains synonymous with utility, durability, and innovation.

My wife was really concerned that I would end up cutting into or otherwise damage good tile. Never a problem.
This was absolutely effortless, fast, and allowed surgical precision. No kidding. The control this offered was astounding. Since the tool doesn't rotate, it can't grab or run. It goes ONLY where you want it to go.
Also, since it doesn't rotate, it doesn't kick up a cloud of dust. This is not to say there is no dust - there is. But, it stays right in the area you are cutting. One tip here is to keep a small paint brush handy to gently brush back the little bit of dust from around your work area to keep your work clearly visible. From there, a quick vacuum hose will pick up the dust.
After a couple of minutes, the grout was completely cleared and my skeptical wife was amazed that this tool could go right to the edge of the tile and do it perfectly without touching the tile. It is THAT good.
I got the 1/16 inch blade in case I need to do narrow grout work in the bathrooms, but if you are working on broader grouting, you may want to opt for the 1/8 inch blade.
Please click YES if my review have been helpful to you, it will encourage me to continue writing and updating my reviews, and leave a comment if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer if I can be of help.
The carbide grits held up for about an hour of work and still are fine. I even used it flat like a rasp to modify some saltino (pretty soft) tiles and that worked well. I wish Dremel had a true rasp like some other companies offer to grind down the thinset under the tiles you remove.
This sort of tool and blade is not for huge nasty demolition jobs, you would want an angle-grinder and diamond blade for that, but it is great for renewing a few grout lines, allowing a couple of tiles to be removed without damaging the others, all without a room full of dust.
This accessory is not overly expensive for what it does and also because it will likely last for a long time in typical homeowner use.
I'm not sure this could be a whole lot better, so it gets five whole stars.
Where this Dremel version stands out is its "square" corners and its beefy construction. The corners make it easy to get into the tight corner spaces which proved difficult with the other tools, and the thick construction is better than the rather thin HF bit which, after time, begins cracking where the metal bends flat to the base.
Grout removal is quick -- just have a vacuum ready. It won't eat into the tile unless you really are trying to grind into it, so you'll end up with a clean, grout-free groove to caulk or re-grout.
I've also used this to strip down a layer of thin set mortar down to the backerboard, for reapplication of tiles. It's not the fastest job, but I haven't figured out a better way of doing it. I just had to use a lot of care because the bit eats into the backerboard faster than the mortar, though the resulting grooved surface doesn't result in any problems, and probably help in adhesion of the re-application.
It's also a good bit for cleaning up exterior stucco slop.
As for value, I can buy 2 or 3 Harbor freight bits for every Dremel bit, but the HF bits have not only the breakage problem after about an hour of use, but also wear a bit more quickly and don't have the squared-off corners to get into the grout corners (where a wall meets another wall, or where a wall meets a horizontal surface.
If it weren't for the corners, I'd probably give this a 4-star rating (due to usefulness for value). For instance, if you're re-grouting an entire flat wall or floor, use there's money to be saved by using HF for most of the work, and this bit for the tight areas.
