I always wanted to be able to write into wood, but not just with a dremel by hand, because I knew from some experiences that this does not give a good result. So I remembered from childhood that pantographs were a cool thing to copy pictures and create your own ones.
Why not combining a dremel with such a pantograph mechanism. So I performed some internet research if someone out there had the same idea as I had, and found the great Matthias Wandel, who had even plans for the whole thing on his webpage. Great for me so I did not need to invent it by myself.
I downloaded his plans and built this dremel pantograph. I really love it and have used it uncountable times since its creation.

I love this project. I had a commercial one maybe 35 years ago. I’ve always wanted to make one. Well done. Thanks for sharing
