Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by uncleglenn Great in theory. Poor in practice
Got a good price on this. Ultimately too flimsy to properly secure and way too limited in movement. Lacks real accuracy. The plastic wing nuts strip so easily and the sliding motion on the aluminium rods is jerky and far from smooth. Cheap construction. Don't bother.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tcgeisy Plunge router is terrible!!!!
I was excited to buy and try the plunge router accessory for my Dremel. As I started to set it up, directions weren't very good. Had A LOT of trouble attaching it to my Dremel. Finally got it to work, somewhat, but didn't stabilize well or cut very evenly. Very disappointed! Now I can't remove the router attachment from the hand piece!! Which renders my Dremel useless! Very frustrating and certainly not worth the money or hassle. Love my Dremel otherwise, although I can't use it with the router base attached!!!!!!!!!!!

Dremel tools and accessories have always been high quality. This tool is the same.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tools4me Handy when a small tool is needed.
Router base with easily assembled. It was missing some of the small hex/square nuts it should have come with. The spindle lock was somewhat inconvenient to use when changing bits. Found it easier to use a nail head to depress the lock. Tightening the collet nut with the standard collet wrench was challenging as I could only 1/2 way around before hitting the posts the router slid up and down on. Ended up using one of my wrenches.
Over all worked well with light cuts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tjm1955 Compact but versital
I wanted a small compact plunge router to cut keyhole openings in narrow picture frames that I am making and this unit provided me with everything I needed. It's size is perfect for use on smaller projects. I would highly recommend the 335-01

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Edd7 Poor design
While it solves the problem of stabilizing the dremel tool it doesnt plunge very deep requiring the cutter bit to be mounted with little shaft in the collet. The return springs impede the depth of plunge. The depth scale provided is a) not calibrated to the plunge and b) mounted on the wrong side of the tool.
Im thinking of removing the springs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by saintlouismo Not for precise work
It's fine for general routing but if you need very specific depths or paths it's not for you. The depth setup system is mostly guesswork and the springs for the plunge are jerky. The plunge lock slips a little unless you lock down VERY tight which is annoying. Also there are no precise center line markings on the base which makes it very difficult to find where the center of the bit is going to be traveling - I had to mark my own with a sharpie. Again fine for general hobby work but I wish I had taken the $30 and put towards a real router instead of trying to make my Dremel something it's not.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MajorWood OK for the money.
This accessory is very lightweight, not nearly as well made as the Dremel tool itself. It allows the tool to flex when you push it harder than it's (the plunge router base) designed for. I wish they would make it heavier duty, even if they had to double or triple the cost! This one is a good value, especially at the price my local store had on it - $21, approximately 1/3 off normal. Upon reflection, I think the plunge base that Stewart-McDonald, the guitar repair outfit, sells. It is mostly metal construction, while the Dremel brand unit is virtually all plastic. OK performance, great value.
