    F@$#%!ing rotozip...anyone know how to use this ****ed thing?

    i got a rotozip. i **** at using it. my cuts are as uneven as hell, and anything i cut can in no way be used to build a box for a brahma 15...

    im wondering if anyone who has one of these **** things (or has used one) can maybe give me some tips on how to cut a god **** straight line...

    any help appreciated

    but the rotozip will chew right thru a wooden straight edge- and someone told me that if i use a metal one it will kill the bit...

    My dad has a ton of metal ones and they never seem to mess the bit up. Just be careful with it. A Jigsaw/skillsaw would work with a strait edge for good cuts also

    i wouldnt use a rotozip for cutting straight lines in mdf....maybe to cut the subwoofer hole...but otherwise it might take forever. just take your time and practice.



    when in doubt, check the ground.

    Take a long 2x4 (or another piece of wood)...line up the bit with your line...clamp that end down...do the same thing with the other end...and you have yourself a makeshift straight edge that works.

    yup, Steve's way is how I cut all my straight lines with my jig. I wouldn't dream aabout cutting any MDF with my rotary tool... oh, I only use them to predrill and sink my screws.
