Dremel 4486 MultiPro Keyless Chuck

"The Dremel MultiPro chuck allows you to quickly and easily change accessories on your Dremel MultiPro rotary tool without having to change collets." (Amazon)

Customer Reviews

"It really works and is by far the most valuable accessory for the Dremel. It closes down to near 0 for the smallest of drill bits (much smaller than a sewing needle) yet still holds larger bits than the "large" hex collet. It is well made and durable, withstanding everything from concrete and tile dust to oily metal shavings. It must be tightened with considerable force to resist slipping under heavy use but that's to be expected." (Amazon)

"This chuck (which I consider to be essential) greatly enhances the convenience of any Dremel. You might be tempted to save the old collet device this chuck replaces, but before long you will discard it as useless trash. I do a lot of really miniature work and I find the chuck to be great for holding things as small as a 1/64th inch drill. I have one on each of my 3 Dremels."(Amazon)

The Dremel Work Station gives you the flexibility to tackle hobbies, fix-it renovations, or special projects without having to invest in a variety of separate tools and attachments.

Measuring 56 square inches, and offering a drill depth of two inches, the sturdy, slotted base has four clamping points, while a rack and pinion feed lever ensures smooth, accurate operation."(Amazon)

"Flexibility for Intricate Work
Whether you're buffing stones or sanding parts of a radio-controlled airplane, you'll appreciate that you can tilt the Dremel Work Station in 15-degree increments from 15 to 90 degrees horizontal -- perfect for more focused, intricate work. When you're grinding or polishing materials, the tool holder prevents slippage by keeping tools at 90 degrees, and the telescoping FlexShaft tool stand lets you adjust to any height between 16 and 29 inches. Once you've finished working for the day, place bits, collets, and wrenches in the tool caddy for easy clean-up and storage."(Amazon)

"Easy Setup and Durable, User-Friendly Design
Easy to set up and operate, the Work Station features straightforward, durable construction. Clips keep messy cords from obscuring your visibility as you work, and inch and metric markings on the base allow for precise measurements and ensure that your adjustments are consistent, too. Compatible rotary tools attach and detach smoothly so you can polish, grind, or drill holes in stone, metal, or glass for rivets, eyelets, or cold connections of any sort."(Amazon)

"Turn that Dremel rotary tool into a drill press with this rotary tool workstation from Dremel. The station accepts several Dremel models to drill perpendicular and angled holes in 15-degree increments from 90 degrees vertical to 90 degrees horizontal. Inch and metric markings on the base make for accurate drilling of workpieces. Depth markings with depth stop provide consistent depth adjustment, while the sturdy metal base with four clamping points holds workpieces securely in place. The workstation also holds the rotary tool steady for other tasks, such as polishing metal objects, sanding different shapes and grinding metal pieces--with greater precision and less fatigue. The station's telescoping shaft allows adjustments to any height between 16 and 29 inches. On-board storage for drill bits, cords, and wrenches keep them all in handy reach. --Brian D.

This product has a great design and quality. This is an expensive tool, but it is worth every penny. It is built to last and you won't be disappointed. It has excellent stability and heft, and can be moved easily and folded. This product would be excellent for welding. It has a metal construction, with hands free clamping, and a lot of strength to hold items that are shaped in unusual ways. You will be able to clamp wood without marring with the soft jaw inserts that come with the product. The only negative side to the product is that the plastic slider that switches from clamp to release needs to be done by hand, and is probably less of a flaw and more of a design choice.

The DELTA 20-619 6-Inch Drill Press Vise can be a great addition to your shop. If you have a small bench top drill press, this may not be the product for you. Here is some information you can use to find out if the vise will work well with what you have.

9-3/4" Long x 8-7/8" Wide. Bottom is 1-5/8" over the drill press table

The jaws are 1-1/2" High x 5-7/8" Wide

A 30 degree five tooth nut segment will be able to engage the screw for the quick release

The pivot is positioned so that when tightened the threads on the nut will dig into the screw. You will be able to turn the nut away from the screw, so you can slide the jaw. If you are not using it, you will be able to push the screw when the nut is down and the jaw will gear forward easily.
