First Post - looking for x y table for dremel workstation

Post by dsteinschneider » Wed May 16, 2018 10:28 am

I've been reading quite a bit online and watching YouTube videos where people fixed design and manufacturing errors to make the inexpensive x y tables more precise (or in their opinion somewhat usable). I have been using my Dremel 300 with their Workstation 220 to route plastic parts to repair music keyboards. I built a jig from wood but results were pretty bad so I found out what I'm doing is called milling :D and that an X Y table for under $100 will probably be sufficient for what I'll be using it for.

I've learned that there are knockoffs of knockoffs for sale online so I'm hoping someone here can recommend a reliable source to purchase an x y table from.

Thanks

Here is the outfit that has lots of stuff for guys like you.

They do have X-Y tables at reasonable cost:

The Micro Mark X-Y-Table will be of high quality, and medium price.
$120 online price.
A good choice.

The MicroMark $120 table...

looks to be identical to the Proxxon table sold by Amazon for less money...

Much of what MicroMark sells is grossly overpriced. Check prices elsewhere before buying from them.
