Bits from the hardware store

I just started using my x-carve this week and I have broken one bit already. Is it possible to purchase standard router bits or the dremel from your local hardware store and use them in the x-carve?

dremel bits cut in the reverse direction unfortunately

(I’m new too) but from my understanding. Yes. You can use bits from the hardware store. However, you’ll probably break those too. Invest in higher quality bits online.
