Precision Router Base

About This Item

A more stable way to support your Dremel. Our sturdy, compact base is the best way to hold a Dremel for freehand routing, inlaying, widening fret slots and more.

Made of machined steel, brass and aluminum, it features precision cutting depth adjustment with large thumbwheels to eliminate guesswork.

    Designed especially for stringed instrument work.
  • Excellent control
  • Easy installation
  • Accurate freehand routing
Sturdy, compact, and adjustable
Each turn of the large knurled thumbwheels adjusts your Dremel's cutting depth by .035" (.889mm). You can rout an inlay cavity that's precisely compensated for the thickness of the pearl and glue, for less sanding later.

Tall twin handles give you excellent control for freehand routing, and you get a good view of your work. There's even a built-in nozzle for attaching a mini air pump to continuously blow away the dust—you'll rout inlay cavities more precisely, for a better fit requiring less filler.

And here's a tip from Dan Erlewine: clamp the Dremel and router base upside-down on your workbench, and use the bottom of the router base as a mini drum sander, as Dan Erlewine did for a Gibson L-1 archtop bridge in this issue of our Trade Secrets Newsletter.

Installation is easy.
Simply unscrew the threaded plastic collar on the nose of the Dremel, and screw on the Precision Router Base. Its 3/4-12 thread fits:
Dremel 4000, 400XPR, Professional, MultiPro and most corded models made since 1986
Black & Decker Wizard and RTX
Our Foredom custom handpiece

Make your Dremel a more versatile guitar shop tool.

used it to cut two inlays and had to quit to finish another project, so not a really honest review. Will do some more in a couple of days but for now great.

Any woodworker who uses a Dremel for fine detail work need to have the Stewmac Precision router base. This is a quality piece of equipment, easy to use and manufactured in the good old USA. The parts are manufactured from high quality materials to very fine tolerances. No plastic here and the design allows easy viewing of your work piece. For the price it can't be beat.

Fantastic Router Base

I had second thoughts on ordering this router base but I did on StewMac's eBay store and I am glad I did.
It is 100% better then any plastic router base made. It works great with my Black and Decker RTX rotary tool.
Well designed and will last a life time.
I make Cigar box guitars and it comes in handy for a lot of different things.
I do not have to drag out my big router to do small things now.
Thanks Stewmac for a Fantastic router base.
Well worth the money.
