If you don't have two left hands it might be easy to make a home brew adaptor for your old Dremel, but I wouldn't advise you to do so, because the machine has not enough power to manage the flexible axis. For about $25 you can buy a Chinese Dremel imitation included the flexible axis. It does of course not have the precision of the OEM Dremel, but you have to decide if you need this.
