good job !
exactly what i need !

What's the thread/pitch on this one?

Tried it but it did not fit my dremel clone which uses a metric M18 x 1.5mm thread.

Sorry, but I don't know the thread pitch of these tools...
There is only 2 versions. The first one is for usual "Dremel like" mini drill and the second one is more specific to original Dremel tools. (But I don't know the pitch of any)

Merci pour ce petit objet bien utile !
Il s'adapte même sur l'équivalent d'une chaîne de magasin que je ne citerai pas ! ;)

Je t'en prie ;)

If I can suggest one further addition, a clip to hold a clear plastic shield in line with the rotation plane of cutting discs could be very useful

Sorry buddy, I'm afraid that I don't understand the idea... any example to show?

I had my fair share of cutting disks shattering. The first time this happens and leaves a mark on the lens of your glasses, you quickly learn to angle the disk so that you never see it exactly edge-on. However it would be nice to have a small clear shield, like a disc of lexan, between you and the tool. This handle looks like the ideal place to put one. Something a bit like this: http://www.instructables.com/id/Improvised-Guard-for-Rotary-Tool/

This is what you are looking for http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1369340

And you would combine both ?

Great idea! I've always wanted this type of grip for my Dremel, and I see someone has beat me to a remix!!

any link for this mini-drill?

Bought in a french hardware store, so no link sorry. But it's the most simple and cheap you can buy.
Of course, with the precision handle, it become the most powerfull tools you never had in your hands... or not... ;)

awesome, but can you make it customize-able as it don't fit on my dremel tool.

Thanks for your comment ;)

I'm sorry, I don't know how to make it customize-able.
I haven't a Dremel but I drew an adaptation from shapes available on Thingiverse. I'll upload it and you can tell me if that's okay.

that would be awesome if you would do that :)

As you can see I have made the Dremel version and it fits perfectly and is very useful!

Thanks a lot pitracer !

I really appreciat that ;)
