Are you tired of sparks and debris spraying all over the place when cutting, grinding, or sanding with a Dremel or Craftsman-branded rotary tool? After reporting that Dremel will be coming out with a safety shield attachment, I have learned that Gyros already makes such a product! This shield is meant to be used to control the spread of sparks and debris during cutting, grinding, and sanding.
Gyros’ Guard rotary tool safety shield looks to be cleverly designed and is comprised of two half-shields, with the inner piece being spring-loaded and self-closing. This construction allows the shield to be opened for workpiece access, up to a full 180° when necessary.
Gyros designed their safety shield to fit Dremel, Craftsman and most other brands of rotary tools. Judging from the photo of Dremel’s upcoming shield design, I would say that the Gyros offers better protection given its 180°-360° shield coverage.
Gyros rotary tool safety shields are available at various retailers, and are made in the USA.
