Hi. I'm a hobbyist drum builder.  I am working on getting some inlays into my wood hoops so I can apply wrap to the inlay.

My plan is to use my Dremel 4000 and the Stewart Mac Router Base set.  I should be able to use a rabbit bit + this fancy precision router base set to perform two passes ( one top, and one bottom ).

At least this is the plan.  I've had folks tell me to get a real router, but I disagree and believe the Dremel and Stewart Mac pair is ideal.  The only drawback is that I may have to make several delicate passes...no big....patience is a virtue - right?

The inlays really need to be 1/32" deep, but since I cannot find a rabbit bit ( can you? ) that is this shallow.  I will settle for 1/16" and may even accept 1/8" - bit the 1/8" would require me to use some filler to shallow out the depth.

These are unproven theories, but I believe they will work with care.

Any expert can chime in.  I welcome and accept all input.  Thanks folks!

Hi, I just bought a 4000 and a StewMac router to do some cavity work on my guitars. Routing for different pickups etc. Did you end up using the StewMac router? If so did you have any problems and/or discoveries? Any tips for a newbie will be most appreciated. Thank you.
