Dremel Milling Machine

The axises move on dovetail slides. When completed, it will have a travel of 11cm on the x axis, 5cm on the y axis, and 10cm on the z axis.
So far, I have printed half of the x axis and part of the y axis. The dovetail slide moves freely with little slack or wobble, even though the print warped. This makes the rest of the machine look very feasible, and I'm confident that it will be able to machine aluminum (shallow cuts, of course) when it's finished.

If you've ever looked at the way dremel hooks up their stuff, it's actually a very simple screw on ring at the tip. Bolts the dremel in quite securely.
Ok, I see what you had in mind. Seems to me it should work ok - there are several ways to do it. It might be a good idea to thread the dremel into the mount, as in the link above.
I have uploaded shat I have for the version I was putting together - basically just an XY table at this point:
Take a look and let me know what you think.
