3-0 out of 5 stars all purpose spinning thing
As with other reviews, the Zip Mate works, and I've used it primarily as a cutoff (everything from steel pipe to ductwork to wire shelving). It is great as an all purpose tool, but does not feel as solid as a dedicated grinder/etc. There is some play in the gear that sounds clunky, but this play doesn't seem to affect performance.

My biggest gripe is that recently the flange nut (which holds the disk on) could not be removed from the disk - it appeared bound (and I don't believe that I ran it too fast!) My only solution was to use another rotating tool (Dremel) to cut the flange nut off and buy another one.

Still, if you want a single all purpose rotating disk attachment for the Rotozip, I recommend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Zip Mate poorly designed
I agree with one of the prior posts in that one could buy a powerful dedicated tool for less rather than deal with the poorly designed Zip Mate attachment. I just broke my Zip Mate yesterday, probably due to the gear being misaligned.

I can't see paying $$ to replace the Zip Mate when I only paid $$ for the entire Roto Zip / Zip Mate kit on sale last January. I'll probably just use the Roto Zip for as long as it will last for drywall cutout jobs and such.

The Roto Zip was designed for drywall cutout work and I think that this is all that it does well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Zipmate Statements
I have purchased the Revolution Combo pack that includes the Zipmate.

The RotoZip is a fine tool for rough freehand cutting. I have gone through many bits, I find that they dull quickly.

The Zipmate is another story: It appears the tool was designed as an afterthought and performs like an afterthought. The instructions do not include that the Zip Mate needs to be adjusted on the drive gear properly.

The first Zipmate didn't work properly and was always binding up, resulting in the tool not turning the Zip Mate. I took the tool back to Lowe's and got a replacement. The replacement tool works better!!

The Masonry wheel attachment will cut through Stucco and the "Chicken Wire". I used the Sabercut bits to cut through the Plywood.

The Metal Cut-off wheel cut through 16 Gauge steel plate with no problems.

The tool is not designed for heavy-duty use and should not be confused for a "do-it-all" tool. A dedicated tool such as a grinder, Reciprocating saw is a better choice for Contractor Type work around the House.

The tool is designed for occasional homeowner use and will make straight cuts in various materials.

I the tool has poor manufacturing and Quality Control problems. Resulting in two different Zip attachments not working the same and other people on the Website having similar claims.

The Documentation is very poor. A better manual or video should be provided for the amount of money spent on the Combo pack!!!!

I am very pleased with my purchase; it is a versatile tool and has performed everything stated. I not pleased that it took two purchases to find the correct ZipMate. Also I understand that it is not a "do-it-all" tool, other dedicated tools are still need for Contractor, Do-It-Yourself work around the house.

Thank you to the many other customers who posted RotoZip issues, both good and bad. It helped me understand my tool.

4-0 out of 5 stars Would/have recomended
I've never had a problem with my RotoZip or Zipmate except one...But we'll get to that. I've used it to cut Mexican floor tiles, standard tiles, Cinder block, paving stones, grind sheet metal.... NEVER A PROBLEM! The one problem I did have is to lend it to someone else without giving them the manual first. You can't run it at the Rotozip's top speed... Other then that never a problem.

1-0 out of 5 stars zipmate attachment
This is a poorly manufactured product. The two screws
that tighten to mount the Zipmate housing on the Rotozip
motor striped out. The unit will not stay on the Rotozip
with it running. The housing is made of a low, low quality of
plastic and is very weak. I have wasted my $... plus
dollars and will not buy any Rotozip anything ever again.
I plan to buy a good quality grinder by Ryobi, Dewalt or
Rigid. Don't waste your time and money on the Zipmate.
It's a piece of junk...............THIS IN NO WAY WHATSOEVER
HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH AMAZON.. ONLY TO ROTOZIP...

4-0 out of 5 stars Proper Alignment Helps
I have found that the best alignment of this pinion gear for smooth operation of the Zipmate attachment, when used on the new Rebel tool, is to leave a 1/8 inch space between the gear and the top of the collet nut. It's not in the owner's manual, I had to experiment a little to discover this optimal placement. A little machine oil on the gear shaft tips and the collet helps, too. ... Read more
