I just bought a Dremel 4000 and I already have the shaper/router table. I had a 300 but I burnt it up.



I am having difficulty getting the 4000 to fit into the assembly. It's too thick.



Any ideas?



Thanks



Judy

You might need an adapter for it after all the 231 Shaper Router Table was around back in 1997 when I got my first 395 Type 5 way back when maximum speed was 30000 RPM's. The newer models the 100/200/300 Series and the 4000 series came out in the last few years and even when the now discontinuied 400XPR came out you basically needed an adapter to use any router attachment except I think the 335 Plunge Router (which of course I have) or the 220 Work Station (which I don't have)

TomboyJudy,

I imagine you have already answered your question since you asked this question some time ago.  However, if you are still in need of a router table... 

I recently purchased a Dremel 4000 and was about to get the router table when I decided to make my own.  If you still don't have a router table and are interested in a project that you can make for your Dremel, and make it using your Dremel, here is a link to the instructable I posted:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Tablesaw-Router-Shaper-for-Dremel-rotary-/

There is a complete set of instructions with a material list and even some easy to use templates.

This project is for a combo - table saw / router / shaper.  If you really don't want to make this table that I designed and are only looking for a router table, here is a link to the original design where I got my idea (just a router / shaper table):

Enjoy Smile

****o,

I really like the table you designed and I WANT one.  I'm new to this forum and never heard of instructables.com before.  Do I need to sign up and pay to get your instructions?  That's no problem, just asking since I don't know anything about it.  I have thought about (on the back burners of my mind) a setup like you made.  Congratulations on your table.

I hope you had a merry Christmas and will have a happy new year.

Non related question:  Since I replied to this thread can this forum be set up to send me an email when someone else posts to it?  Other forums have that feature.  If I don't get an email I may forget about a subject I was interested in.  Thanks.

Jack

I have the same problem. I have an old 231 Router Table and just got a new 4000, and it does not fit the old table. How do I get an adapter to make it fit?

****o this is Beth from Dremel.  What you need to make your 4000 model fit in your old 231 is an adapter.  There are "two" different ones that we have available, depending on your 231.  What I would suggest is that you call our Dremel Customer Service Department so you can discuss this with them and obtain the proper one to fit your tool.  (The adapter is free through us).  Please call our toll free phone number of 1-800-437-3635, Monday through Friday, 7:00 am - 6:00 pm, CST.  Any of us would be more than happy to assist you!
