GLITTER BIT SPECIFICATIONS

- Directions for Use -

"Finishes the job that a diamond blade can't . . ."

  1. Specifically designed to grind Concrete & Hard "S-Type" Mortar.

  2. Smooth Cutting . . . Excessive force is NOT required nor recommended.  A die grinder operating between 8000 and 15000 RPM's provides the cutting speed you need . . . Especially on hard materials.

  3. Glitter Bits are for use in variable speed Die Grinders, operating between 8,000 and 15,000 Rpm.

    As Glitter Bits wear, it is possible that the metal shank will vibrate.  With the variable speed feature in the die grinder, being able to quickly lower the die grinder's RPM speed will improve the Glitter Bit's cutting performance and life.


  4. Creates a tenth the dust - compared to an angle grinder & diamond blade.  The dust that is created stays with a 3' square area (even without using a vacuum).  The dust simply doesn't go airborne, as it does when using an angle grinder and diamond blade.

  5. DIRECTIONS for USE.  When grinding brick mortar joints, start by positioning the Glitter parallel to the wall.

    - Angle the tip of the Glitter Bit into the joint on a 30° angle & proceed to grind this way, using a raking motion.

    - Always maintain a 30° to 45° angle as you continue to rake the bit across the mortar.

    - Try not to use the very tip of the Glitter Bit, doing so will wear the diamonds from the tip prematurely.  Diamond crystals need speed for life.  The outside perimeter has the correct surface speed necessary for long Glitter Bit life, whereas its tip is only spinning at 300 RPM.

    - Never push on a Glitter Bit.  Let the bit and the die grinder's 8000 to 15,000 RPMs do the grinding.  Applying excess force on a Glitter Bit will cause the shank to bend or even snap.

 

 

Testimonial 
"The bit scares me!  It is just too simple to use - any one can use it . . . You don't need to have any tuck pointing training or skill level do use this tool.

You have complete control of the bit . . . total and precise control when grinding next to a window . . ."

Glitter Bit Life - Description.
Glitter Bits are specifically designed for durability while grinding hard materials type-s mortar, granite and concrete with heavy aggregate.

Single Brick Cut-Out Procedure

1.  For use with variable speed die grinders, operating at less than 15,000 Rpm.

2.  A vacuum must be used for this application *.


(Click on .pdf to download the 1 page instruction manual)

 

Start your brick cut-out by angling the 4-5/8" Glitter into the mortar joint, as opposed to drilling straight into the mortar.1.  Start your cut into a brick's mortar joint by positioning the 4-5/8" Glitter parallel to the horizontal mortar joint.  Angle the tip of the Glitter Bit into the joint on a 30° angle & proceed to grind this way, both horizontally & vertically - around the brick, to obtain a 1" depth.

 

Make 3 or 4 passes around the brick's perimeter, each time going 1" deeper.

 

2.  Maintaining a 30° to 45° angle as you continue to "work the bit" - using a combination of holding the bit on the angle and rotating it in-and-out of the mortar joint.  Do not grind perpendicular to the wall.  Doing so will wear the tip of the bit prematurely.  Diamond crystals need speed for life.  The grinding speed for Glitter Bits is obtain on the perimeter of the bit.  Whereas the very tip of a Glitter Bit is only spinning at 300 RPM.

 

 

Cutting the vertical brick joint . . . Notice:  No Dust.3.  Repeat steps (1) and (2) above three or four times around the brick's perimeter, going 1" deep per pass, to successfully and quickly grind the mortar until the brick is free.

4.  Remember to grind with the side of the bit and not use the tip of the Glitter Bit.  Never push on the bit ~ let the bit and the die grinder's 8000 to 15,000 RPMs do the grinding.  Applying excess force on the Glitter Bit's 1/4" shank will bend the heat treated drill rod and cause injury should the Glitter Bit snap.

 

 

After every pass of the Glitter Bit, stop your cutting and just use the vacuum to remove the dust that lays in the joint.5.  Vacuum excess dust from the brick joint.

  • Periodically, stop your grinding

  • Remove the vacuum hose from the Brick Dust Controller

  • Using just the vacuum hose, go around the brick's perimeter
    to vacuum the dust that remains deep inside the brick joint.

  • By not removing the dust deep inside the joint, cutting speed
    is reduced (you'll just be pulverizing the existing dust).

 

Mortar joint completely cut around the brick.  Brick's removal is easy.Finished Product:  Individual brick removal.  Cutting through hard "S" mortar - without any dust - and no overcuts into the adjacent mortar.

6.  After the Glitter Bit has completely cut through the mortar joint and the dust is removed, lightly tap on the face of the brick to remove the brick.

 

 

 

Testimonial 
"I personally cut out over 300 bricks with a single bit.  Though it was very soft mortar, there was some hard mortar and within two minutes we had the brick out."

Testimonial 
"A very useful tool to have in your tool box . . ."

"I like it . . . and just look at the diamonds glitter . . .

I've never seen diamonds on a blade exposed or glitter like this . . . and they glitter even more as the bit wears!

The exposed diamonds are what cuts . . . I like this."

 Glitter Bit Pricing.Glitter Bit Pricing

IMPORTANT:  Glitter Bits are only for use in variable speed die grinders.  The safe RPM range for Glitter Bits is between 8,000 and 15,000 RPM.  As the Glitter Bits wear, they'll naturally become uneven which will cause the die grinder to vibrate.

The variable speed feature on the die grinder enables you to quickly lower the die grinder's RPM speed for continued smooth operation, safety, and longer life of the Glitter Bits.

Would you like to increase productivity 33% while dustless grinding?

Is the vacuum collection tank filling too fast?

 

 

Power Stations - Maybe the most important wet/dry vacuum accessory in the industry!

PS-300 Power Station, for use with any 1, 2 or 3-Motor Dust Director VacuumsA Power Station is simply an cylinder or an extension tank that you insert between the collection tank and motor head.  Installed, collection yields, productivity and suction performance all improve 33%!

 

Bottom third of the Motor Heads and the HEPA Cartridge Filter consume 33% space in the collection tanks.After using a Dust Director® Vacuum and seeing for themselves how powerful their suction is maintained, customers often say that the collection tank fills so fast (even as they realize that the dust has completed filled the tank - to its inlet port and without suction drop.)

To collect an additional 33% more dust - in the same filter collection bag - you'll not only increase productivity but you'll reduce filter bag consumption by 33%!

For these improvements, a Power Station (an open cylinder) is simply placed between the collection tank and the motor head.  Installed, the HEPA cartridge filter and 1/3 of the motor head will now be OUT of the tank.

With more room in the collection tank, the filter collection bag not only is able to fill an additional 33% (10 more pounds of silica dust), but with more room for expansion the filter surface area of the filter bag increases to further ensure that suction power and longer operating times are maintained.

Bonus:  With the HEPA cartridge filter operating in its own protected airspace and with more room for the filter bag to fill and expand, airflow improves considerably.  With maintained airflow, the motor(s) operate easier and more efficiently, they do not overheat, and they last considerably longer;  this includes carbon brush wear.

Additional Vacuum Information & Features:

STANDARD COMPONENTS - 

Included with each Dust Director® Vacuum are the following:  Heavy-Duty Polyethylene Collection Tank, 2" Inlet Port with 12' Smooth Bore Interior Hose (improves airflow vs. a ribbed interior hose), 2" ID Smooth Vinyl Hose Cuff (connects to 2" ID dust ports), 1 Years Parts and Labor Warranty on the Motor Head.

AIRFLOW HEPA FILTER SYSTEM -

With AIRFlow HEPA Filtration you can expect to collect volumes of Silica Dust without the filter caking, which causes suction drop. 

AIRFlow HEPA Filtration -

Using the right filter media, the vacuum's powerful suction is maintained without having to use Electronics, Solenoids (an electronic switch), or Electrical Circuit Boards.

"Its not the vacuum, its the filter . . ."
Any vacuum - of any type, quality or price - is worthless without the right filter.

If you like electronics and you want to spend a lot of money on an electronically controlled vacuum cleaner, then a Dust Director® Vacuum is not for you.

But if you want:

  • 100% of the motor(s) power to be dedicated to suction, and not shared with electronics that shake and pulse the filters

  • To be able to simply replace an industrial grade motor, on/off switch, or wire nut - should the vacuum ever not start.  As opposed to removing the cover and seeing a bunch of electronic components and circuit boards . . .

  • To look across a floor and NOT see batches of fine layers of dust (due to suction loss because the electronic "pulse" self-cleaning filter activated itself)

  • Simplicity.  Durability.  Powerful Suction.  And a Filter System that Keeps Up to You ~

Then a Dust Director® Vacuum is for You.

 

The AIRFlow Filter System includes a HEPA Efficiency Pleated Cartridge Filter and your choice to use the Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bags or the Self-Cleaning Flutter Filter.

 

CLEAN EXTREME FILTER COLLECTION BAGS - 3 included per vacuum

With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed you can expect to collect large volumes of silica dust - to the tank's inlet port - without incurring suction drop or without the filter bag tearing or accidentally bursting inside the tank.

Increase Productivity - How many times are you stopping production to clean or maintain the vacuum's filter or having to empty the tank all too often?  With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed, suction power stops when dust begins to exit through the tank's inlet port.  Are you grinding concrete for one hour straight and you happen to notice suction drop?  Simply turn off the vacuum and suction power will resume 120% ~ Guaranteed.

Are you grinding dry and now the wall or floor is wet?  Extreme Filter Bags install into wet/dry vacuums with an inlet port - Tanks stay clean, cartridge filters stay clean - even after collecting 140 lbs. of dry concrete dust.No problem ~ Clean Extreme Filter Bags work even better when the surface is damp!

Besides maintaining suction, collecting large volumes, and being able to pickup dry powder, moist debris, sharp objects and HOT MASTICS - all at the same time - when you go to remove the filter bag you'll notice that the inside of the tank is clean, the outside of the bag is clean and your vacuum's cartridge filter is still brand new looking.

 

 

 

ACCESSORIES - A complete assortment of accessories are available for a Dust Director Vacuum.

 

Filter Collection Bags:  Clean Extreme Self-Cleaning Filter Collection Bag.

Installs onto the inlet port inside a tank with its 2-1/2" collar.Clean/Extreme Filter Collection Bag.  HD, cloth filter bag installs into any W/D vacuum, maintains suction performance, collect dry, wet, sharp debris.3 bags are included with each Dust Director Vacuum.
