Default Dremeling - what tips do you use?

So what tip do you all use to dremel your dogs' nails?

I have an accessory pack with a ton of different things, so if there's something that works better than what I've been using, I'd like to know!

Us too. It is the best for smoothing out rough edges, making it all nice and smooth and trims them down quickly and easily.

Same same. I get the kids to lay on the floor, hold the Dremel up close to the head and go to town. I hate it when the thing "catches" and skips. Hence the holding it up near the grinding surface. I usually have my thumb braced against the toe I'm working on, too, for extra control.

OH MY GOD YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!!

I've been using a grey grinding tip all along and it took FOREVER to do nails. I'd seriously spend 30 minutes on a single dog and not make much progress (betweem grinding, letting it cool, etc) and wondered how the hell I was supposed to grind down every toe nail every couple days.

I just switched to a 60 grit sandpaper drum and WOW! I did both dogs' toenails in under 5 minutes. I don't even need to use clippers to take anything off before I grind anymore!

THANK YOU!!!

Were you possibly using a stone drum/ other shape? Stone does heat up super fast. I'm glad you figured out our secret

I was using something similar to this:

http://www.drillspot.com/products/99..._pack_of_5?s=1

It was a pain in the ass compared to the sandpaper drums. Ii even did Tango's just now in under a minute (granted he only has 3 feet and they're tiny, but still! lol).
