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 100, Dremel 4000, 400XPR, Professional, MultiPro and most corded models made since 1986
Black & Decker Wizard and RTX
Our Foredom custom handpiece

Customer service couldn't be better!

In the middle of a job I knocked my stewmac router base off the bench onto the floor and broke the studs. I called stew mac and they immediately solved my problem and sent me a new router base. At no charge.The old router base was 10 years old. They went way above and beyond normal customer service for me. That is one of the reasons I continue to buy their products. Thank you Stewmac!!!

cutting inlay grooves

My rosette looks spectacular. It took about 1/10th the time it normally takes and there was - 0 - gap to fill in because the groove was so perfect and steady. Now we just need a tool to help pinpoint the "exact middle"

Awesomeness!

I was in question if I actually needed this but after doing a ton of research I decided on getting it! I figured this would make my life easier and I didn't want to ruin the materials I bought so I went ahead and got it. I'm so glad I did. This thing is awesome and so easy to use. I can see everything I need to and I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone in question themselves. I also bought the Dremel bits and my project turned out awesome!! Thank SM for making an amazing product.

I've had my router base for over 5 years , used it a lot. One of the height adjusting posts snapped. Much to my surprise, they sent a replacement. I consider that great service and honest treatment to a long time customer. Thanks

2nd Base

I bought this StewMac Precision Router Base to replace the similar one I have been abusing for some 20 years. I say similar because it is actually upgraded in many ways. It is more robust overall and has now got a compressed air feed for clearing debris from the cutter path. I mostly use this base with a Dremel motor for cutting inlay cavities, and the air will be a big plus.

Great replacement

Brilliant replacement with free postage from a great and generous company... not every company would replace a device for free... my experience of the Luthiery collective is they look after and support each other... making instruments is a joy with such support...

It's pricey compared to the plastic ones on Ebay. Much better built though. It will work with Harbor freight's upper end variable speed rotary (dremel)tool.

Simple et efficace

By

Verified Buyer


Je possède la version Dremel mais je lui reproche son manque de précision, beaucoup de jeu. J'ai eu envie de tester cette version pour voir. Voilà un modèle tout en aluminium de grande qualité. Une fois la Dremel fixée, rien ne bouge, aucun jeu, c'est du solide. Double système de blocage par colonne. On règle la profondeur de fraisage, on bloque et c'est partie. Très maniable, léger, je ne regrette vraiment pas mon achat. De plus livré en 3 jours !

Even better than I was hoping for! Don't even consider the plastic junk made by other companies. No reason this should not last a lifetime!
