Customer Questions & Answers

can i use this device with a regular ryobi hand drill?

Asked by: angel
Not likely. This tool is intended for Dremels and such. I take it you are talking about a full-size hand drill. If so, it definitely won't fit.

does this stand accomodate dremel rotory tool? Can you ship to India?

Sir, Please let me know if rotatory press can accomotade dremel 400 rotatory tool and is there any adjustment to fix any another tool which is near by the size of dremel tool? Can to ship to India?
Asked by: MUKUND
The assembly manual shows a Dremel tool mounted on the drill stand. Sorry, I cant tell which model number it is. There is no adjustment to fit other units, I am using a WEN 2305 which is about 50mm diameter and there is some extra room for somewhat larger diameter tools. Please see my review for more photos and other info. I hope this helps

Hello, I have a tool that is 23mm in diameter. Are there adaptors to mount to this? I can't figure out how to mount a power tool to this? does ONLY the drill bit go through the hole? Thank you John
Asked by: Johnny
There are two collet nuts that are supplied with the ToolStand. These will attach to the threads on the head of your rotary tool.

It is quite rigid, especially in comparison to the near-identical Dremel product. Dremel's work center does allow you to hold the rotary Dremel Tool at an angle, but it does not have the kind of rigidity that this Drill Press has. Where this unit has cast metal and very rigid plastic, the other has flexible pieces of thin plastic. On the Dremel Work Station, I tried drilling some 6061 aluminum, which is a pretty soft alloy, by the way, but my drill just walked all over the place. The drill was plenty sharp, but the work station just flexed too much. I am quite confident that this tool won't be like that. Somebody thought that the tripodal base is unstable, but there is no more stable an arrangement than a tripod. As far as it's instability when the rotary tool is turned sideways, well that is the same for all of these small drill presses. Unless they are clamped down, they are unstable. So, clamp it down. The ToolStand is a light-duty item, but still quite rigid. I am very satisfied with it and would recommend it to anyone else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works OK for the price Recognizing that the M1097 Milescraft rotary drill press stand is not a precision machine tool, it still is worth considering for hobby use. Its low price is closer to what one might expect to pay for a toy, but overall the materials, quality and functionality is pretty good. Pros: Low price Easy assembly using a Phillips screwdriver and small adjustable wrench or pliers Assembly instructions are fairly good, but the photos are a little fuzzy Looks like it will accommodate a variety of models and sizes of rotary tools Allows mounting a rotary tool horizontal (90 degrees) for polishing, cutting, etc. Light weight but fairly sturdy. Easy to move from bench to storage. Cons: The pilot feed lever hits the depth stop set screw. This is not a serious problem, but its annoying. It simply needs needs a slightly shorter set screw. The pilot feed lever operation is a little jerky. The spring drags and pops. The spring cover is a thin metal plate secured by only one screw. This cover came warped and dented straight out of the box. There is no provision for clamping the work. One will probably need to improvise. I use blue painters tape for holding small circuit boards as shown in photos.This works OK for drilling a few holes. The base has four slots part way cut in at 45 degrees – like an “X” without the crossing point. I have not found any machine or milling vise that will mount on the base. The slots are large enough for a 5/16” - 3/8”carriage bolt, but, why? The rotary tool is mounted cantilever on its nose. This allows a slight wobble when contacting the drilling surface. The illustration on the shipping box shows a strap providing lateral support, but it was not included with my unit. To turn the tool 90 degrees you must completely remove the assembly from the column, turn the assembly 90 degrees and reinstall it on the column. The cantilever mounting causes more instability when the tool is 90 degrees. Furthermore, the whole thing is off balance and it tends to fall counter clockwise unless the base is anchored securely. Overall, the design needs improvement, but the unit works OK for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money Had to turn my Black & Decker rotary tool sideways to fit in the drill press, but it works fine otherwise. It does have a little play when lowering the handle, but I have used it to drill holes in glass, ceramics and pottery with nice results. The cap on the pole does not fit tight so I have to make sure that I don't lose it when traveling with the stand. Nice hobby tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very light duty This stand is meant to hold a Dremel type tool so you can use the tool like a drill press or to hold the tool so you can move the work with both hands. I found it to fill the bill as long as the project is very light duty. There is an excessive amount of play in the mechanism for any tight repeatability. There are two screws to lock the unit in position but they require a screwdriver. They should be replaced with thumb screws. I was going to use this stand to fashion a mini vertical mill but it is so light that any side load will just bend or twist the unit. Replacing the thin vertical column with a heavy pipe will help with rigidity but then the base becomes useless. This device is OK to drill holes in Printed Circuit Boards or if you have a pilot hole to guide the drill but do not rely on it to give you repeatable results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The drill stand was easy to assemble and well made. My Dremel drill fit nicely in the fixture. The drill stand was a casting that was light weight and of high quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tool Stand Review Although this tool stand says it is fits the model 398 Dremel tool, it locks the shaft so the Dremel tool cannot turn. It clamps the button used to lock the shaft for bit removal. In general the stand appears cheap and is very light weight in construction. I will be taking it back to Home Depot for a refund.

It also could not be adapted for any of my American style drills. I had assumed "rotary tool" meant drill. I could not even give it to a wood worker friend. In my opinion it is a piece of junk.
