  • 5/16" router bit for binding
  • Air pump with hose

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.

  • 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.

Complete set includes:

Precision Router Base
For sturdy, accurate freehand routing
Binding Edge Guide
To cut smooth, clean binding channels up to 3/8" thick
Router Bit for Binding
Small diameter is ideal for tight curves
Mini Air Pump
Keeps the cutting area free of dust

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.

Precision Router Base

I recently purchased this router base to do some small design work in the carving I do. This is a fine tool and a welcome addition to my shop. Thank You!

Loyal customer for 32 years!

I have used your previous generation Router Base on my instruments. I am impressed always with the quality of your products and I am looking forward to the precision improvements engineered for the new base. This is a sample of my work which I know will be incredibly easier to inlay now with my new base!

Precision Router Base

I like it, it's not that easy to set and can come loose but better than anything else I have seen. Proper engineering job.

wow this is great!!!!

Just got this router base and i already love it!! I'm using a rotozip with a flex shaft to attach to this base. it makes it feel more like the Foredom set up. Just add one washer under the screw on end piece and the router base. It gives you more power and less chatter!!!

wow this is great!!  indiana pa.

Just buy it..

"The poor man always pays twice"... I bought Dremel's brand of this tool and thought I would save a buck or 2 and you should see the hack job the plastic router base did to my nice wood! After I returned it, I decided to buy the Stew Mac Router Base and the first words that come to mind is : ACCURACY.. ..QUALITY.. ..DURABILITY and oh yeah .. PRECISE ENGINEERING! Awesome product - worth every cent!

worth every penny

I had been using a Sears router base, but this is so small yet substantial. No way could I do the ledge on my control cavity with the Sears, this was too easy - even for me!

Superb service.

The product itself is flawless and makes inlay works very easy. Adjustment of the two thumbwheels is very fine and also easy. Stewmac's customer support is awesome. My first package got lost during delivery, so Stewmac decided to send me a new one via DHL express for NO additional costs.
