Testimonials

“ The term 'precision' tends to be thrown around with abandon, but in this case, it's warranted. Imagine gene-splicing a micrometer with a plunge base and then shrinking it; that's the new Micro Plunge Base from Micro Fence. It's a miniature version of their standard precision Plunge Base - made for compact routers... The Micro Fence system oozes quality. ”

- Brad Holden, American Woodworker June/July 2013 - Pint-Size Precision (Micro Plunge Base Review)

“ MicroFence: Once again I am amazed at the quality and precision of your products. I just got around to extensively using the Micro Plunge. —- Precision, quality and repeatability… thanks for a great product. ”

- Homer, Micro Fence customer

“ Hi Rich, I just wanted to wish you Good Fortune on your upcoming tour and i hope that you sell lots of tools. I'm absolutely delighted with the Micro-plunge base and Micro Fence. The tool is fun to use and the high accuracy and repeatability of cuts is a godsend. Cutting and installing a 4 diameter circle of 3/64 stringing now takes me about 20 minutes as opposed to over an hour when cutting it by hand, and no hand cramps to boot. Great tools. Now then, why dont't you make a micrometer depth stop for my drill press? (just kidding, but if you ever make one, I'll buy it). ”

Micro Plunge Base: for High Speed Rotary Tools

$299.95

The Micro Plunge Base was designed with fine detailing in mind. It's a smaller (4″ diameter base), lighter plunge mechanism with the patented micrometer dial to provide measurement for depth-of-cut. It features silky smooth plunge action, extreme stability, and precision with maximum visibility. This is an all US-made machine tool made of solid aluminum and hard chrome-plated stainless steel with stainless springs, bronze sleeve bushings, and acrylic tool inserts. It is fabricated to precise standards and is all corrosion/rust resistant.

The Micro Plunge is ideal for light-duty jobs such as installing small hardware (like jewelry boxes), architectural detailing, inlay work, picture frame-building, luthier work, scale model building, and precision repair requirements.

The Micro Plunge comes with some basic accessories that add to its versatility. There are also optional additions that can further the tool's applications. Included is one Acrylic Insert for the motor of your choice (see the drop-down box below to select your model), a pair of Auto-Centering Bearings, a Ball-Tipped Driver for assembly and adjustment, a sample bottle of the spindle oil we use, and all appropriate hardware to set-up and run. Other accessories are listed below and shown in the thumbnail pictures to the left (more information on each accessory is available on the Accessories page).

If you're interested in a more complete kit, our Package Deals page offers combinations that include our foundation pieces with the Micro Plunge.

Note: Edge Guide or Circle Jig owners who purchase the Micro Plunge will also need the Mounting Bar to fit it properly. You can select it below, along with other important accessories.
