"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."

Here’s what LarryRobinsonInlaySQUAREworld renowned

to say about this tool:

"I've tried a lot of different bases over the 40 years I've been inlaying and none have been as satisfying to use or as comprehensive in their functions as the
LarryRobinsonQuote200one Luthier's Mercantile has designed. It's beautiful enough for techno nerds to admire and simple enough for beginners to easily utilize. It's a well thought out piece of art."

About the Tool 
Overview &
base pattern

The Rotary Tool Plunge Assembly comes fully assembled and pre-adjusted. Springs, adaptor (if required), standard acrylic base, and two hex wrenches included.

  • Rigid, compact, open base design allows you to clearly see your work area. The ridges machined into the base make it easy to hold and move, and the straight sides allow for the easy use of a fence. 

  • Plunge slider makes for quick, precise,
    repeatable plunge movement with no need
    for locking - just slide/plunge and cut. There is an easy access fine depth adjustment making on-the-fly depth changes a breeze. The counter-balance springs provide just the right amount of spring action to offset the tool being used (see image). 

  • Anti-vibration system assures there is no
    slop in the depth of cut adjustments. The anti-vibration adjustment prevents tool vibration from affecting the fine depth adjustment and altering the depth of cut - no locking!

  • Maintenance free graphite dry-lubricated linear bearings keep the plunge action from binding.

  • Supports 3 popular rotary tools – Dremel, Foredom #30 handpiece, and Proxxon. Because the Dremel adaptor is threaded and not the RTPB itself, the Dremel tool can be oriented so that the power switch is in a convenient position. The Proxxon adaptor is a simple sleeve and the Foredom tool needs no adaptor meaning all tool orientations can be changed easily. See base with Dremel tool.

ADDITIONAL TOOLS (available below):

  • Digital Depth Gauge (DDGmakes determining your depth of cut a simpler task (See more info).
  • 5/64" ball end hex wrench (RTPBHW) 
    This ball end hex wrench is perfect for making fine adjustments (photo).
