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 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

This tool is phenomenal. I had the Precision Router Base previously and I liked it, this one though, amazing! If it's in your budget to get this Plunge version do it! All the upgrades from the Precision base are worth it!

A precision tool

I have routed or re-routed (for pickup installations) at least 500 bridge slots with the original StewMac Professional Router Base. For rosettes and soundholes, I use a shop made circle cutter with a laminate trimmer. I recently had the need, however, to route and install soundhole rosettes on two carved top Irish bouzoukis, which I described to someone as inlaying a thin, flat rosette on a basketball. In an effort to make the task as easy as I could, I ordered both the new Plung Base for the Dremmel as well as the Rosette and Soundhole Routing Jig. I was amazed at the precision of both tools and especially the Plung Base. Using this combination of tools on an inclined work board, the job went as smooth as it would on a flat top! Looking forward to using the new Plung Base on bridge slots as well!

Useful in many situations

Easily the best router base for my Dremel that I've ever owned. The locking handle design makes setting a fixed routing depth fast and easy, and the adjustable depth stop allows for fine tuning depth on the fly a breeze. So far I've used this router base for installing 5th string banjo railroad spikes, cleaning up excess finish during a bridge re-gluing job, neatening inlay cavities and preparing split control cavity screw mounting areas for repair. Absolutely worth the price.

Worth Every Penny

Wish I'd been using this for years. The depth adjustment is so intuitive and easy and fast.

With a 1/4" height, 1/4" diameter, 1/8" shank Amana tool guide bearing router bit, this thing just smokes small routing jobs like they're nothing.

The old precision router base with a guide bearing bit in it works great as a miniature router table. That's all I use it for now, and it's great at that. For everything else, this plunge base is superior. It is just an absolute pleasure to use. Very well thought out and deserves an established place in every guitar shop.

This works smoothly and easily. For me the two knobs, which loosen by "unscrewing" work intuitivelyand easily - (one leftie, one rightie) which might bother some. The light is fantastic. Quality made throughout.

I recently had the chance to put this tool to work. The light was a great idea. Adjustable depth of cut was perfect. I wish I had gotten one sooner. Made my work easier.
