I just bought an 8200 after Christmas and love it.  I have had several projects that have been a perfect fit for this wonder tool. 

Last night I picked up the Work Station 220-01 to do some stationary bottle cutting with a diamond disk.  I was hoping to lay my bottle horizontal then rotate the dremel to 90 degrees and then use the arm to lower the tool, instead I found that the arm rotates with the tool and no matter which way I rotate the tool, I can't get a chopping/cutting motion with the disk.  The Work Station seems to be designed more as a drill press then a versital tool.

I don't have a right angle attachement, but it seems like it would fix my problem and I wouldn't have to rotate at all and I would be able to get a downward cutting motion with the disk perpendicular to my work piece.

So, my question is, can I attach the right angle tool to the Dremel while it's in the Work Station?  Since the Work Station uses the Dremel's neck thread to attach it to the station, it seems unlikely that you can attach anything to it while it's in the machine.

Sorry, I just realized I went into a lot of detail just to ask a simple question.

There is a square shaped slot for the holding nut and tightening handle to work in that is 90 degrees from the up-and-down movement. Just take the entire thing up off the upright, turn it 90 degrees, set the square nut in that other slot, start the tightening handle into the nut, slide it down on the upright to the height you want and tighten it up.





cut to fit, file to match, paint to hide

Thanks for the response.  There are 2 problems I'm trying to overcome, 1) I need to use the up/down arm on the press so that I can put my material under it then use the arm to ease the griding wheel into the material.  Move the whole unit up and down on the upright won't work.  2) My material is too thick to get the cutting wheel over the right area due to the width of the dremel in relation to my cutting wheel.  So, I need something that will extend the wheel out past the body of the dremel so I can get clearance.
