A Simple Way to Make Your Dremel Moto-Tool Hands-Free

Sorry it’s been a while, folks! Summer’s a pretty crazy time around the old place.

A Dremel moto-tool is one of the handiest tools ever devised for small work. I’ve used one most of my life, and of the three I keep here in the shop, I run at least one every day. 

Once you discover how much more control you have with your Dremel held stationary so both your hands are free, you’ll rarely use one hand-held again. 

I finish a lot of small parts with Dremels, and never found a good all-purpose fixed mount for one that suited me. But lately I’ve been using a ‘stupidly simple’ easy-to-make one that fits most Dremel models, and allows one to be quickly clamped into a vise.

Just a 4″ long piece of 1-1/2″ x 1/8” flat steel with a 3/4″ hole in one end, these work very well, and you can leave one mounted on your Dremel while it’s used freehand, too. I’ve made several, and they’re really handy. Try one, I think you’ll like it.  




Hope that’s helpful! 

God bless,
