    I am terribly disappointed in this tool. there is entirely roo much movement. The drill tip does not stay in alignment at all.

    • If there is movement in the tool head, please tighten the hardware that is located on the bottom of the tool head holder. Once the nut and bolt have been tightened any movement should cease.

    Great stand for Dremel/Sears hand tools. The price is quite fair given the quality made components. People have to understand that this type of power tool is made for light duty operation and the stand gives you an extra hand and added stability. Great for smaller/hobby projects.

    I have always considered Milescraft products to be good value for money, so despite patchy reviews, I bought one today. I found construction quality to be quite good, and my Dremel ran vibration free. I had no difficulty in drilling holes accurately, and found no play in the unit. Provided this is used in small hobby work, I can’t imagine anyone being unhappy with it.

    This is an unpaid, unsolicited opinion.

    ToolStand™ is very easy to set up and to use. It works very well with my Wen rotary tool.

Will the Dremel 4000 fit the 1097 ToolStand?

Yes, the Dremel 4000 is compatible with the Milescraft 1097 Tool Stand.

When installing a new spring in the ToolStand, do I need to pre-tension the spring?

Yes. you will need to pre-tension the spring by two turns in a counter-clockwise direction. Please be sure that the cover plate is re-installed before pulling down on the lever.
