With this base, you can convert almost any rotary tool (such as our Dremel® 3000 item #17J17.10) into a miniature plunge router for fine detail work, allowing precise depth control for hardware and inlay recesses, or even freehand relief carving. Low-slung grips and a 4" x 3" footprint make it easy to position on narrow surfaces and close to edges.

A cutaway in one side lets you see the exact position of the bit. Depth of cut is controlled with a stop post with a micro-adjust screw; you can plunge as needed, or lock in the depth using a lever for continuous cuts.

Grooves near the base let you hold and guide the tool using just your fingertips while keeping your palms close to the work for excellent control. Made largely from aluminum with stainless-steel rods and knobs, it fits onto the 3/4-12 threaded collar found on most rotary tools (including most full-size Dremel® tools). Patented.

The fence and center kit, available separately, lets you use the edge of a workpiece as a reference when making cuts, and can also be set to accurately guide the tool when cutting arcs or circles. It includes two straight fences made of torrefied maple (both 6" long, one 1-1/2" wide and the other 5/8" wide for thin stock), a pair of curve guides, a circle head with three interchangeable centers (sharp pin, 1/4" post and flat disk) and a pair of 6" fence rods.

The 6" rods allow offsets from zero to 4-1/2" with the straight fences and diameters from 1/2" to 17-1/2" with the circle head. Pairs of 12" extension rods are available separately to extend the fence's reach.

The optional precision adjuster clamps to the fence rods and attaches to the fence holder or circle head, letting you fine-tune their settings with a thumbscrew.

The plunge base, fence and center kit, precision adjuster and 12" fence rods can be purchased individually or as a complete set.

We also offer a 6" long traveller that lets you hook the plunge base onto the Veritas power tool guide (our item #05J50.01) to cut straight, accurate lines with assurance. It attaches to the fence rods in place of the fence, for use on either side of the guide, and is compatible with the precision adjuster.

The optional task light accessory mounts on the base to illuminate the bit directly, making it easier to see where you're cutting. The post is angled to aim the light at the cutting line without blocking your view, and can be attached at four different points on the plunge base using a stainless-steel thumbscrew.

The bright LED flashlight attaches to the post with two rare-earth magnets and runs on four button-cell batteries (included). Weighs about 3 oz with a total height of 2".

Made in Canada.
 
   
         
Available separately, there are Mini Downcut Spiral Bits (our item #86J04.01) and Carbide-Tipped Router Bits (our item #86J04.21) designed with 1/8" shanks for use in rotary tools.
