Purfling/Soundhole Router Guide

About This Item

Attach to your Dremel to cut purfling channels and soundhole rosettes.

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).

Disappointed!  It will not fit the sound hole on a ukulele

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this to use on a StewMac Koa uke kit but did not realize that it was too large. I have another tool I can use but it is going to be difficult to setup without the center of the hole in place. It will be a hassle and since I am worried it will fail, I will just skip it on this one. They did give the measurements in their ad, so I guess it's my fault for not digging out the kit and checking. The picture makes it look a lot smaller and is not in a sound hole. Sure wish they had said that it didn't work with a uke in their ad and saved me some time and effort. It seems to be good quality and I suspect I will find a use for it sooner or later, but I sure was planning to use it now and that's what's frustrating. That said, if you are thinking about getting one, it looks very nice and is very heavy - the sliding part is very smooth and it is painted gloss black. So I would say go ahead and get it - just make sure it fits in whatever you are using it in. Yep, I never learn.

difficult to control

By

Verified Buyer


first time user so consider my frustration from that viewpoint. because of the top heavy balance it was hard to control the cutting smoothly and precisely. where I could get a good grip and move horizontally without friction, it was easier to make a good cut. I also learned to keep the revs up in the 25k-30k range to cut smoothly (1/16" router bit)

Stop what You are doing and Buy One Now! This is probably the most versitale tool in my shop ! You have 360 degree view of your routing bit, fits comfortable in your hand, you can free hand scroll or the easy adjustment. You may think a bit pricy, but this is Heavy Duty Stew Mac Quality! No cheap plastic parts! I would expect to get many years service from this tool. Great for inlay work, binding and most all routing jobs. Small footprint allows working around tight corners. Just another Incredible "Must Have" tool from Stew Mac ! 5-Stars !!!

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.
