DIY Rotary Tool

Introduction: DIY Rotary Tool

In this instructable, I will show you how you can take some easily available materials and combine them to make a DIY rotary tool! So lets get started.

Step 1: Materials

This is a very easy project and does not require a lot of materials. The materials required are:

A 12V DC motor

A switch

A DC jack

Some wires

And a drill chuck

Step 2: Connections

Connect the motor, switch and the DC jack together, you can refer the images for this. The connections are as follows:

DC Jack + to Switch to Motor

DC jack - to Motor

Step 3: Enclosure

You can make the enclosure in many ways. Here's how I made mine. I used a plastic tube and drilled two holes, one for the motor and one for the switch.

Step 4: Finishing

Put the motor in the enclosure and secure the switch in place. put the chuck on and its done. you just made your own rotary tool. This is compatible with all dremel attachments. Have fun building yours!
