You won't save money, you will loose it.
A rotary tool is not designed to work with sideways pressure.
Only light drilling and some brindging/polishing work that won't require too much pressure - like engraving glass.
The bearings won't tolerate pressure too long and finding replacements can be tricky and costly.

A cheap router isn't that expensive anymore and it will come cheaper than constantly replacing bearings and motors.
