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!

<p>A) I love the whole midea here...<br>B) I noticed that you drove the nails &ldquo;under&rdquo; the plane of the &ldquo;table&rdquo;. I don't know that I would have thought of that, and I'm glad that you showed it.<br>C) However, if you've got newer or nicer workbench, you might think of using &ldquo;carpet tape&rdquo; instead of nailing/screwing the &ldquo;Rotary Tool Auxiliary Table&rdquo; to your workbench surface.</p>
<p>&quot;I needed to make a small insinuation&quot;</p><p>I think you might have meant &quot;incision&quot; there- an <em>incision</em> is a small cut, whereas <em>insinuation</em> means hinting or suggesting something. Just a thought.</p><p>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.</p>
<p>Ah, incision makes a lot more sense. I also assumed the OP meant <em>kerf</em> 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.</p>
<p>correct on both accounts. The one I constructed is small because I use it to construct architectural scale models </p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>Genius!</p><p>I have a very limited space and this will save me. Thanks a lot.</p>
<p>One could use a rotary cutting bit, like the one below?<br>But the quality of cutting might not be excellent..</p><p><a href="https://www.dremel.com/en-us/Accessories/Pages/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=561" rel="nofollow">https://www.dremel.com/en-us/Accessories/Pages/Pro...</a></p>
<p>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.</p>
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! :)
<p>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</p>
<p>I agree with you, Dave. This is a Dremel router table, and a perfectly adequate one. Sure, it could be used to cut some materials, but it is misleading to Instructables readers to call this a &quot;table saw&quot;. </p>
<p>With the right bit (a plunge router type) this arrangement will work very nicely as a fairly accurate and fine cutting table saw. Nothing crude about it.</p>
<p>So simple, yet genius. I was trying to find a real simple way to use my dremel in this very way, and I'm too lazy to make one of those fancy &quot;drill press&quot; or &quot;table saw&quot; ones on Instructables. Thanks man!</p>
<p>Brilliant ideas! Thanks!</p>
<p>thank you!</p>
<p>I'm thinking some of these concepts could be used with the heavier plunge router type drills, I may try it with mine.</p>
<p>Nice portable saw! Can it cut through plywood? Dremel tools are so useful!</p>
<p>I would like to see a live-action video :)</p>
<p>Cool! What do you plan on using it for?</p>
