3D Printed Dremel Rotary Tool Mini Table Saw Prototype

3D Printed Dremel Rotary Tool Mini Table Saw Prototype

Building a mini table saw powered by a Dremel flex shaft for cutting thin sheets of carbon fiber, plastic, fiberglass, foam etc. 3D printable housing with adjustable legs was designed to stabilize the rotary tool while providing flexibility to work with different size cutting wheels. Hinged top on the plywood base allows access to a compartment for storing the rotary tool and accessories when not in use.

    I’ll be making cutting table using mdf sheet & rotary tool

  2. KingRahl3D on June 4, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    This project looks great. I love it.

  3. Arnaud Thiercelin on June 4, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Really cool idea.
    Have you thought about a scissor mechanism for the rising of the dremel?
    Do you have stability issue with the current system?

  4. Gary McKinnon on June 4, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Nice design, thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. James Helton on June 4, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    very cool. Really like the CF top (though you loose some cutting depth with how thick it is). It will be interesting to see how it wears. I imagine that as you use it, your list of mods will grow (grin). I can only imagine the "tinkering" you had to do to get the pieces to all fit especially with having to reprint parts, have you ever considered a project clock for your videos? Essentially, it would be just a little clock (doesnt have to be more than a click face ) that you keep updating with the amount of time you have in the project.

  6. Carlos Molina on June 4, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Great project and very functional! Thank you for sharing the idea and your thoughts of improvements!

  7. Matthieu Libeert on June 4, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    been playing with this idea as well, specially for cutting of the flanges of parts this way. Well designed, but if I can give you a few tips I would do differently is get rid of the flexible shaft for this and make a mount for the dremel directly for more torque and power. As well be carefull with the shaft getting stuck in parts while the dremel is still on full power, Might get nasty then with the shaft moving and getting stuck in your table 🙂

  8. deejayimm on June 4, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Wow…. what a very intriguing young lady… Even her logo is wonderfully thought out. Very cool stuff….

  9. Dan Dishonored on June 4, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    really nice. Can flex shaft be attached to a bigger drill to use with a bigger diameter cutters?

  10. Joseph Lorentzen on June 4, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Really neat, but you could have raised the shaft on a scissors jack thing:2745830 or even simpler a screw with a knob for a jack. With either one, micro adjustment in height would be a breeze once you are aware of the thread count.

  11. Maximus Quin on June 4, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    I have an old sewing table with a swinging lid. I may just try to do the same with my flexshaft and 3000! Thank you so much, I cannot afford a bad mini table saw and a good one is way too expensive

  12. jim james on June 4, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    biography. who are you. education. great sense of it.

  13. Lion McLionhead on June 4, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Looks like a Lamborghini table saw

  14. Arsenal21 on June 4, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    So innovative! Thank you for sharing!

  15. Running with Scissors on June 4, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    Wow. So terrific. LOVE it!

  16. Paul Bialozor on June 4, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Wow, you really are one very amazing young lady… Keep up the great work, I enjoy watching what you will do next… Cheers…

  17. XDIY with Itzik on June 4, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Great work!

  18. RailbirdsTV on June 4, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    I love how at the beginning of the video you have a completely functional table saw made (almost) entirely of cardboard. Freaking awesome! 🙂

  19. Tom Tom on June 4, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Did you go any farther with this, or do you rarely use it to bother? There was a lot let left to do to make it reliable, but is it worth it…

  20. RailbirdsTV on June 4, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    14:20 "The top of the table saw was made of fiberglass and carbon fiber." Of course it was. 🙂 I know you love you some carbon fiber!

  21. H. W. on June 4, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Hey, great built! I would really like to build this myself – did you upload your 3D models to Thingiverse or something? It would be greatly appreciated <3

  22. Justin Murphy on June 4, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Could you sell me the 3D printed parts already printed? I am trying to start a small business of sorts out of my spare bedroom. I’m recovering from my third spinal fusion two of which were in the last year the last one being September 3rd. I am trying to make as much as I can well waiting on my disability decision. I just do not have access to the 3D printer. I enjoy the car audio industry and I am trying to set up some type of restoration business for older equipment. This table saw will be perfect for me since I cannot work outside and don’t have a garage.
    If you need to, please message me at…..

    Thank you so much in advance!

  23. Ronny Julian on June 4, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    Ever looked at Brass inserts? Top work!

  24. David Zeller on June 4, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    Can you tell me what that giant ruler was around 5:40? Thanks!

  25. samantha farmer on June 4, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Should have used plastic board like starboard instead of wood

  26. NoNamesLeftFuk on June 4, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    cardboard mockup? subscribed.

  27. Lee Robinson on June 4, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    A true engineer, very well done and very well presented!

  28. Andre Bullitt on June 4, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    I am so glad I found this site. 🙂

  29. Jonathan S on June 4, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    This is so fucking cool, it’s incredible what one person can make with the right tools (and an engineer’s brain, obvs)
    Also watching someone cut a tiny piece of cardboard on a tiny cardboard table saw was an "awwwww" kinda moment

  30. Bran Muffins on June 4, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Might be an interesting thing to make for our makerspace. Thanks for showing it.
