Terry Kreachbaum, luthier:
one. What a lovely thing. The red anodized finish was a surprise, since I expected
gray or black, from the black and white picture in your catalog.....What a gratifyingly precise and beautiful tool. A bargain.
Thanks again. I look over at the shelf where my pretty scarlet
gem of a router base is kept and I am filled with delight. It is whimsically
bright and joyous."
Model Airplane News:
"Detail work made easy
If there's one tool that almost every modeler has in his or her shop, it must be a Dremel tool or one similar. Just when I thought I had every available accessory to make my life easier, here comes the Bishop Cochran Plunge Router Base, which converts the fixed base Dremel tool into a true plunge router.....
The very sturdy unit is machined out of anodized aluminum with 01 premium ground steel posts and guides. If you've used a plastic router attachment, you know how it can flex and loosen, but the Cochran base has a beefy feel and absolutely does not flex......
Am I impressed? You bet!"
Mike Shirt, street organ maker (England):
"I felt I had to drop you a line to say how excellent I have found your Plunge Router
Base to be.
It certainly has lived up to my expectations. It is a tool that I know I will have many
years of use out of.....the router base has been useful in many areas but particularly for
the organ pipes. It enables me to cut very accurately a 20 thou' rebate at the mouth where
the air emerges into the pipe."
"A top-notch base made of machined and anodized aluminum.
[This] beefy tool is stable and has micro-adjusting capability--both horizontally and
vertically. The base has a depth stop and locking vertical and horizontal levers.
The base is also pre-tapped for templates or other accessories intended for Dremel bases.
Cochran's base makes it easier to control a Dremel tool when routing freehand or with a
fence....this is an accessory that turns your moto-tool into a precision mini-plunge
Furniture and Cabinet Making:
"The base is extremely well made....Once set up and locked in position, the accessory
allows the Dremel to cut with an exceptional smoothness and accuracy. This little tool is
ideal for inlay and decorative marquetry work on furniture and, with a little imagination,
the shape, size and construction of the router base allow it to be adapted to custom
Mike Doolin, luthier:
"Greatly extends the functionality of the original tool. Solidly made and extremely
accurate, it's just the thing for inlay work."
"Looks like a miniature version of the base you'd find on a full-size plunge
router...Looking at the base shows Mr. Cochran paid careful attention to details. Quality
construction is evident in the base's anodized aluminum and hardened steel components,
simple layout, and smooth operation...I was impressed with the simplicity of mounting the
tool, and with how securely the base holds the rotary tool in place...it give[s] rotary
tools a level of control and performance missing from their standard router base
