Introduction: 3D Printed Plastic Dremel Table/vice Support

Picture of 3D Printed Plastic Dremel Table/vice Support

Support for Dremel mini machine to be used either in a vice or on your workshop table.

I needed a better support for my Dremel than my vice, when I was doing a delicate polishing job, and found out that Dremel didn't make such a thing. Since then I have used it for all sorts of controlled instalations in combination with other machines (drillpress and lathe).

Made up a Inventor parts drawing and had it 3D printed at Shapeways.com.

3D printing via Shapeways.com is a great opportunity for amateur 3D designers to have their ideas built at a very low cost. And contrary to machining it is a good idea to have material removed from the file prior to printing because the print gets cheaper, even if it gets much more complicated. I use the "shell" function in Inventor a lot for these projects.

The screws are M5 insex and the nuts fit into hexagonal holes, so they wont turn.

The table hook comes from a tablelamp.

I looked at Dremels solutions, but they did not suit my purpose, however using your idea and do a pic search, I found other non-original solutions that looked ok.

This was however an easy and cheap solution for me, the print was about $25.

Dremel makes a few products to hold their rotary tools. A quick image search on the web turns up at least 3 different ones.
