Dremel Table Saw





Introduction: Dremel Table Saw

During a project a little while ago, I needed to make a small insinuation, smaller than the curve of a blade, thus I constructed this little table.

Step 1: The Table

To create the table, I used three leftover 2x4s.

Step 2: Hole for the Dremel

After the table is constructed, I used a drill press to make a hole the size of the dremel head in the wood.

Step 3: Dremel Table Saw

Then I screwed the table to my work bench and clamped the dremel to a post. After that I clamped an extra piece of wood to the top in order to create a strait edge and there we go, a dremel table saw!

    A) I love the whole midea here...
    B) I noticed that you drove the nails “under” the plane of the “table”. I don't know that I would have thought of that, and I'm glad that you showed it.
    C) However, if you've got newer or nicer workbench, you might think of using “carpet tape” instead of nailing/screwing the “Rotary Tool Auxiliary Table” to your workbench surface.


    "I needed to make a small insinuation"

    I think you might have meant "incision" there- an incision is a small cut, whereas insinuation means hinting or suggesting something. Just a thought.

    I like the look of this, although the table is quite small- if you made a bigger table this could be a really cool project.

    Ah, incision makes a lot more sense. I also assumed the OP meant kerf of the blade, which is the width of the cut that the blade makes. I was guessing that they wanted a thinner kerf than their normal table saw provided.

    correct on both accounts. The one I constructed is small because I use it to construct architectural scale models

    I found a circular cutter for the dremal which I can use just like a standard circular saw it did cost a but I think I paid around $50AUS for it at Bunnings but well worth every penny I spent on it I also bought the router setup for it as well, it cost about the same I think. I use them for making miniatures for dollhouses. The dremal is great for doing this as they also have the add ons depending on what you need them for.


    I have a very limited space and this will save me. Thanks a lot.

    Sorry, I'm not trying to be mean or a smartass, but how is this a table saw. I can understand a router table, but how can you cut things with this? Maybe if the dremel attachment stuck up above, but then it would be a thick crude cut. Even if it was a cut off wheel turned sideways, that way you could cut things. Great idea, I'm not trying to put you down, just wondering.

    I agree. This is not a table saw. Though a very clever hack to turn a dremel into a table ROUTER! I'd suggest renaming this 'ible (if you can). Other than that, brilliant hack! :)

    its just what I called it because I used it as both a saw and a router table. and I was only cutting balsa wood. sorry
