StewMac Plunge Router Base

About This Item

Our sturdy base turns your Dremel into a compact plunge router—perfect for inlays, routing saddle slots, cleaning fret slots and more. The advanced design gives an unobstructed view of the cutting action.

It's very simple to set the precision depth adjustment, then plunge and raise the bit exactly that amount. Each turn of the knurled micro depth stop gives approximately 1/32" of adjustment, to a maximum depth of one inch.

    Designed for stringed instrument work
  • Excellent control
  • Clear visibility
  • Maneuverable for accurate freehand work
  • Works with our Saddle Slotting Jig

Sturdy, compact, and adjustable
You can plunge-rout an inlay cavity that's precisely compensated for the thickness of the pearl and glue, for minimum sanding later.

The ball grips give you excellent control for freehand routing and easy operation of the plunge feature. The built in LED light bar gives you a fully lighted 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.

Installation is easy
Simply unscrew the threaded plastic collar on the nose of the Dremel, and screw on the base.

    Plunge Router Base fits these rotary tools with a 3/4-12 threaded plastic collar:
  • Dremel 100, Dremel 4000, 400XPR, Professional, MultiPro and most corded models made since 1986
  • Black & Decker Wizard and RTX
  • Our Foredom custom handpiece

Plunge router base


Verified Buyer

I have the stewMac precision base and have used it for years on rosettes and bridge saddle slots. I was interested in the new plunge base. I have seen LMi's plunge base and I was impressed but found the price difficult to justify. When StewMac introduced their plunge router base with a price I could handle I decided to take the plunge and give it a. I'm please with the results. Its simple design and bright work light make it a very useful replacement for the precision base. I would have given it 5 stars but the plunge feature is not as smooth as I would prefer (I am sure I'll get used to it). I recently used it on a rosette on a 3A addy spruce top with good results. The plunge feature gave me better control of the depth of the cut and the ability to move without starting and stopping the dremel.
