Dremel tool mounting hardware (used for Dremel 200)

Here's how I mounted my Dremel 200 router. Something similar could be used with other rotary tools:

I made this out of 2 pieces of polycarbonate, but MDF, PVC, or aluminum would probably work. Also, I put a saw slit in the middle and used 6-32 screws to mount everything.

It's nice to see some Dremel supports. It gives everyone more options.

But, with there forums, there is suppose to be a guarantee that each project in the code forums will contain all the files someone would need to create it.
Can you post the downloadable GCode file and any CAD source files you had created so that others can load it up in their CNC programs?

Just edit your post and include these at the bottom.

I actually made this on a manual milling machine before my ZTW device was done. Because of this, I don't have any G-code to share. The CAD file is in Sketchup, but I'm not sure it's entirely accurate. I can upload it if you want though.

If you want to delete the post, I won't be offended.
