Introduction: 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.
