    They work ok .. small bits mean it will take longer to do some work.

    I was actually JUST pondering the same thing today, and I decided to try my hand at building one. I need to buy materials for a permanent one, but today, I took a shot at it. I simply clamped the dremel, bit pointing up, into my bench vise. I then set a piece of think wood over it with a hole drilled in it so the bit only protrudes the amount I need, it worked surprisingly fairly well. Any ideas to eliminate the bench vise and perhaps build a guide or something would be much appreciated.

    I haven't tried one, they sell consistently on eBay for about 15 bucks, I am seriously considering purchasing one...

    Lol! No joke I used to actually have access to them through one of my distributors, that was before I started selling computer stuff! :p

    I decided to not risk buying a cheap dremel routing attachment, Dremels don't really have the torque to do the job well anyways. I just sucked it up and bought a cheap Ryobi table router and some carbide bits, it works quite well. It was $99.00 for the table and like $8.00 per bit at home depot.

    No room for a router table now, living the student life in tiny cardboard apartments sharing the couch with the roaches. But someday, ohhh someday, I will have a shop with every tool there is, even tools that I have no idea what they do, they're just shiny and run on AC. (drooling...)

    By the way, how do I get a catalog or website for your store? Curious what ya got.
