Dremel Fragging

Recommended Posts

A quick instructional on how I do my fragging. Today I am fragging some Bam Bam zoas in preparation for the expo in March.

Tools I used:

Dremel with a diamond cutting bit

Safety glasses

Latex gloves

Flat head screw driver

Bone cutters

Pliers

Frag plugs 

Super glue gel

(Maybe a mask if you are worried about the dust)

Getting started

I try and look at the frag first and see where I am going to try and make my cuts. I get a general idea, and lock the plug in the pliers. Then I get to fragging!

Then just glue away.

Give it a few months and this...

Nice demo. ..  Food for thought:  rinse or soak those plugs in rodi a bit ahead of time and you won't get those pesky air bubbles

Nice tip!

Thanks Matt! Also did some Branching hammers and a torch coral today. Those were much easier.

you have to use a respirator type mask,  you get the toxin in your lungs; wow immediate wide spread distribution.  You know that,  And there isn't a doc that will have a clue what to do unless you tell them or they love reefs   :m0715:
