Do you have a hardware list?

That is a sturdier, and safer, design. And more plastic :-)
Added a safety note.

I made this almost a year ago: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Instructions

PLA, printed with 0.5 nozzle and 0.5mm layer thickness. With a little cleaning up, the thread detail was good enough for the Dremel threaded neck to fit. Same for the depth adjusting M8 bolt.
Post-print drill the guide bushing with an M8 drill. Lubricate with a puff of silicone or PTFE spray.

Safety note: even a mini drill deserves respect for safety sake!
As the spindle is mounted on the threaded nose only, it can easily be overloaded. For a more secure design: thingiverse.com/thing:17945

[2013-01-05] Baseplate Stl update; round space for the top hex nuts
[2012-01-07] Knobs added (made with thingiverse.com/thing:11797)

I'll have to print this out and try it with my cordless Dremel.

Your baseplate looks a bit poligony
but i like the overalldesign

That is because it has been generated with ImplicitSCAD in an effort, not too succesfull, to get rounded guide to baseplate edges.
I added the Scad source so you can create the Stl, with a cleaner mesh, using OpenScad.
