Right now Total Tool and Home has the Dremel 220-01 Workstation for $33.39.

Basically an updated version of Dremel’s old drill press stand for the Dremel rotary tool, the workstation allows regular drill press use of the Dremel as well as positioning it up to 90 degrees for angled drilling (in our opinion it’s always better to angle the work not the head) and for holding the Dremel for controlled work while holding the workpiece with both hands. It also will hold the flexible shaft attachment, and telescopes up to 29″ for hanging the Dremel out of the way. Of course, a dedicated drill press is always a better solution, but if space and budget are a factor this may be what you need.

It’s worth noting that Amazon has it for $39.63 with super saver shipping, so that may be a better deal.

    Have one. Wish it were more rigid, planning to build my own shop-made version which will be far stiffer — but this is actually quite a nice piece of kit.

    The rotating axis isn’t really useful for drilling or similar operations — it’s used when you want to hold the Dremel in a particular orientation so you can bring work into contact with the spinning bit with both hands. I’ve used this setup for deburring metal parts, light grinding, polishing, and sanding. It’s not even close to precise on any part larger than the bit in the Dremel, but it usually gets the job done.

    I’ve used mine for everything from gunsmithing to model making, with several stops around the home. Plus unlike the drill press I don’t have room for, this goes right into a drawer when I am done.

    Yeah, I’d say Amazon is probably the better deal.
    Total Tool and Home wanted $26.30(!!) for standard
    shipping (from Illinois to Ohio).

    I’ve used an almost identical setup for home-built DIY circuit board drilling. Much easier and quicker (and less cumbersome) than using a small or mid-size bench drill press…

    Will this work with the black and decker rotary tool?
