An usefull helper for the first steps using my printrbot and dremel as a mil.

I used the manual control buttons in pronterface. The result is good for the first try, but takes a long time.

The dremel mount has some troubles with the forces during milling. I did the first round with a clearance of 0.5mm (the result was between ~0.2 and 1mm clearance). After that I removed 0.1mm per round only in order to keep the forces deep.

Used tool: 3.2mm high speed cutter



  • Print the needed parts
  • Drill and countersink some holes in the base plate (the two holes in the block have a distance of 40mm)
  • Push 12 nuts into the 2 blocks
  • Prepare 6 nuts for the jaws (destroy the thread on one side of the nuts, so that the screw get stuck)
  • Mount the vices as shown in the pictures


  • 2x printed blocks
  • 2x printed jaws
  • 1x base plate (plywood)
  • 4x M3x10mm flat (countersink) head screws
  • 22x M3 nuts
  • 6x M3x60mm screws (or threaded bars with 6 nuts and 6 lock nuts as heads)
