on the back the the dremel bit packages, the only one i found that says cuts fiberglass is the carbide blade, which happens to be one of the most expensive ones. Do you need this one, or will the cheaper more typical fiberglass reinforced "cut-off wheels" do the job?

The cutting wheel (#542 I believe) works just fine, it's like 10 bucks.

I used a dremel. With a #542, and uses a dremel with the brownish/redish cutoff wheels, not the fiber reinforced ones, the smaller ones.
