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

Precision router base

See a lot of people using this base. Haven't used it yet but all the reviews are good, I'm sure it will work and look forward to using it. Stew Mac has a good reputation although prices are a bit higher than what I'm willing to pay for most of what I would otherwise buy. I make cigar box guitars so only buy those items that I can't get anywhere else. I like Stew Mac quality, shipping, and customer service, just don't like the prices!

Excellent! Works very well. Holds the Dremel firmly. But be careful not to damage the plastic thread on the router.

I use this base for every guitar I make. It's an indispensable tool in my shop and one of my most used. From routing inlay cavities to cutting saddle slots, this base keeps the bit level and the work clean. I highly recommend this tool.

Great value

Compared to other similar products out there, this is a real steal. Very well made, easy to use and adjust. Nice port for air compressor if desired. If anyone is still using the old Dremel base, time to upgrade, you won't regret it...

Dremel accessories are cheap and not stable. This is rock solid and well made!

Well made precision tool. I use this for edge shaping on small projects. Works much better than similar plastic bases.
