I have a rotary tool (yay for me!), and it has proved really usefull to me in more than one occasion. The very notion of carrying pocket sized factory excites me dearly.
This isn't Dremel tool, but some german made thingy, pretty much ok, it even came with flexshaft.
But one of the problems that had bugged me is grinding, it isn't natural to, for example, sharpen your knife or make a set of lockpicks with both things in hands (one sharp, and other abrassive and very fast rotating + mains powered, and of course when grinding metal you must dip it in water from time to time, and here comes a nasty frying potential).
This is why i decided to make things happen, and stop sitting on my bottom...and i made a WOODSLAB!!! who wants to touch me???
ok, i admit that this is pretty lousy for an instructable...flame on!
as a high priority remains bench drill mechanism for rotary tools, can't find them in my country...i will try to do that next (building, not finding).
Step 1: Materials & tools
ok, lets list them up:
1. you need a slab of wood (hence WOODSLAB!!!), or anything else (but then it isn't WOODSLAB!!!) to which you can fasten those hoseholders
2. hoseholders (2 pcs.)
3. two screws, you dont see them in this pic, but i guess you know how they look
1. wirecutters & ultra cheap fake leatherman -i used these since i needed to liberate the WOODSLAB, previously known as seventies art reading lamp post, hence holes you see on it.
2. power screwdriver
3. power drill (you dont see it, but i used to to make pilot holes for screws)
