Instructions
We designed this machined aluminum attachment for cutting purfling channels along the edge of a profiled, unglued violin plate; an unglued fingerboard; or for rosette channels around a guitar soundhole (round or oval). It guides the cutter bit along tight curves and helps maintain constant routing distance from the edge.

Simply unscrew the plastic collar from your Dremel tool, screw the tool into the guide, and set the depth of cut with the tool's chuck. The cutting distance from the edge is adjustable. The guide is easy to handle and gives a good view of the work.

Base of the tool is 2-3/8" x 1" (60.32mm x 25.40mm)
Sliding platform is 4-1/8" x 1" (104.77mm x 25.40mm)
Overall height is 2" (50.80mm), plus thumbscrew

The cutting distance from the edge can be adjusted up to approximately 1" (25.40mm).

Fabulous little tool - for jewellery !!

I purchased this little gem to help as a router guide for channels around the edges of sterling silver cut-outs for jewellery making (think dog tags etc). What a terrific little invention for using with my Dremel. Works a treat!! The local lapidary club can't understand how I get my channels so even. Love the ease of use and the end result with decent router bits is outstanding. One of my all-time favourite tools. Thanks guys!

Great tool, up to Stewmac standards

It works great for purfling and routing, and is even better (to my needs) when taken apart: It turns into a sturdy metal holder for the dremel tool, making it possible to attach the dremel in a variety of jigs, for straight cutting and for planning difficult areas, such as the inside of a heel joint in a lespaul.

Great Little Tool

My wife wanted a plant display stand so I made a 7/10 scale replica of "Rosebud" the sleigh in Citizen Kane. In order to replicate the edge detail I used the purfling router guide.
Easy set up and very stable! Now I need to design more projects where I can use this great tool.

Purfling Madness

This amazing contraption from stewmac.com ranks in my all time top ten tool list, this really is saying something.....

As this tool is a power attachment it should not strictly be on the list, but it saves me 4 hours of solid concentration cutting the channel by hand. (per violin plate) I do 5 or 6 fiddles at a time. you do the math.
It saves me time and money and allows me to get on with the jobs I enjoy.
