Default Dremel Jig

I would like to share with the Forum a jig that I've mader for my Dremel to do some inlay work with a Proxxon flex-shaft.





This is the result, a guitar scale inlayed with abalone and mother of pearl

Excellent jig.

Like BobJ I also am into jigs. I spend more time working on jigs & fixtures than on woodworking projects and end up with a dozen unfinished boxes and clocks just lying around the shop. Stew-Mac has something akin to this that uses the Dremel tool itself screwed into the jig. I had thought about trying to copy the jig but just bought it instead. The link below takes you to the Stew-Mac jig

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.

Hi Ken, I already know this jig, but, what append is, that the weight of the Dremel it self, rests on the jig, that makes the precision work a bit difficult to control, instead of, using a flex-shaft is more on the control, is very light weight and the Proxxon one is very good comparing with the Dremel one.
