Removing Old Caulk: Dremel Multi-Max


Removing Old Caulk The Dremel Multi-Max is just the tool
to remove old, unsightly caulk quickly and easily. To demonstrate this we’ll fit the Dremel
Multi-Max oscillating tool with an MM610 flexible scraper blade. Use masking tape to reduce the risk of
scratching the porcelain and the tile. Begin by inserting the flexible scraper
blade into the tool. Tighten the screw with the allen wrench to secure the
blade in the holder. Plugg in and set it at the
low-speed. Now insert the blade in between the wall
and the caulk. With the flexible scraper make sure that the screw head does
not make contact with the surface during the scraping process, this can be
accomplished by making sure that tool is at an angle to the blade. A thirty
to forty degree pitch is recommended. You should be able to see the blade flex
during the scraping process. Now work the line between the sink and
the lower edge of the caulk, peel away the remaining caulk when all the caulk is removed wipe the area with rubbing alcohol to
remove any remaining residue remove the tape and your sink is ready to
be re-caulked. The Dremel Multi-Max with the flexible
scraper blade makes this task safer and faster compared to traditional methods
