Yeah it wasn't really a suggestion lol. I bet the router table idea is viable though, not that it would be easy. Human ingenuity is an amazing thing to behold.Chatter city, lol.
However a fairly solid fixture on a router might be viable, though you'd likely need a lathe to make it.
Necessity is the mother of invention...
I have a similar setup. It is a CC Specialties rebranded one, made by Foredom. The right angle tool is essential for getting at the transfers. Also, the added torque over a Dremel is very desirable. Think I paid $750 for it, about 10yrs ago. Also have a handful of carbide burrs and a Standard Abrasives "porting kit". I've used it on quite a few cylinders and automotive cylinder heads. I used to do snowmobile and PWC stuff.eBay,
The guy wanted 500 plus 50 bucks shipping.
I offered 450 shipped and he grabbed at it. He had no bids the first time he had it listed.
He Said it only had 2 hrs use. When I got it the bearing in the 90 was shot.
Cost 17.00 bucks for two on eBay with shipping. I couldn’t complain.
I use the 4000 with the extended cable. I put a hook on the side of my bench to hang it from while it runs. If I could go back I would get the 5000 because the extended cable robs a lot of torquWhich model dremel do yall prefer? I have had several over the years but they was pretty much junk?
I have the Dremel Advantage rotary saw kit that I got from a pawn shop. I don't think they make that kit anymore because it came with a bunch attachments plus the rotary shaft. It is 5 amps and has quite a bit of power compared to your basic china rotary tools. It's even made in U.S.A. which is unheard of for electric tools these days lol. I leave it hanging on it's stand attached to my bench and use it all the time.Which model dremel do yall prefer? I have had several over the years but they was pretty much junk?
It works well. Had one before I got a Foredom. But it's not as affordable as a rotary tool with pencil attachment. You would still want to buy a smaller hand piece than the one provided. Like a H28 or other detail oriented pieces.
Would I actually be able to change the hand piece out? I don’t have it in front of me. It is on the larger size.....It works well. Had one before I got a Foredom.

Yep. Pops right off. Quite a few hand pieces to be had if you wish. It's a standard flex shaft connection....if there is one. I use four different brands. Favorite is the detail pen mastercarver makes.Would I actually be able to change the hand piece out? I don’t have it in front of me. It is on the larger size.....
Good point. CAD types have a habit of getting a bit carried away, haha. I ported my first set of V8 cylinder heads with an air die grinder, a carbide burr, and a Standard Abrasives head porting kit. I was a poor college student. Prob spent $100. The problem with an actual "dremel" is that it doesn't have enough low RPM torque. Most are also only 1/8" collets. Most of my burrs and sand roll attachments are 1/4".Lets not forget JKstihl asked for "Bare minimum tools" needed. I'm sure a lot of us could post pics of our flex shafts and lathes..
I bought a HF dremel and the pencil attachment off amazon while back and it still works great. Only break it now when in a pinch. The amazon package I posted is a good deal even if it doesn't last that long.
