Screw this puppy onto your dremel, adjust your bit depth, and route away to your heart's content.

I liked the attachments that Cooch made in http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5819 but wanted something that would screw firmly to the dremel. Thanks to sylwch's thread library http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8793 this is possible.

The source files live at https://cubehero.com/physibles/Lenbok/Rotary_Tool_Router_Attachment which has better version control management.


I printed mine in PLA at 0.15mm layers, 30% infill and it attaches nicely. If you need to adjust the tolerances slightly, increase or decrease the threadRad parameter in the scad file.

Threads fit my no-name corded grinder nice and tight.

Threads don't fit my cordless Parkside (Lidl) Cordless Multi-grinder PFBS 12 A1.

My make is here: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:415985

Thanks for the nice design!

Printed in PETG. I really like the simplicity, the threaded part is a perfect fit. I shall be using it to route cavities in foam wings for model aircraft.
Thank you for sharing.

Where do I find the version with regulation that has a side screw?

Note: I made this design and I liked it a lot, but people have asked me for a second version with depth adjustment

Nice work??? sorry... but Can you change the distance?? How do you do??? Because I can't see any part with which you can do this. Is possible?

Mate, you simply adjust how deeply you place your bit into the chuck! No need to over complicate things.

Can you post and editable file ? I intent to use the thread piece. Will post credits of course.

which thread did you use?

Hi! This works on a dremel 4000? Thanks a lot!

Awesome design! One of the most complete, functional, and valuable things I have seen on Thingiverse. Thank you for sharing.

This is one of the more useful things I have printed AND USED since I have my printer. Very smart design!

Great simple design. Is the thread for attaching to the dremel metric or imperial?

Thank you, Lenbok, for making this available to others! Printed one today on a Printrbot 2014 Simple with PLA and 0.2mm layer height because the 0.15mm you suggested refused to stick to my aluminum bed covered with blue tape.

Nice! Could you add the threads to the original circle cutter that your thing references. I'd love to have it with threads.

Printed great in Cura. The infill failed on me, but it seems it was not even needed. It only ended up with a little bit of bridge bottoms in 2 spots. It screwed onto my Dremel 300 nicely.

printed and works like a charm!

Slic3r was unable to slice it.  Cura worked (printing its gcode in Repetier Host Mac).  It screwed right on to my Black and Decker drem-alike as a perfect fit.

I was just about to design this! hopefully it fits on my Mastercraft rotary tool. Here's to useful parts!

I was thinking building one too, but great minds think alike and it's already done! :-D

Pics or it didn't happen :)
