Give Yourself An Extra Hand When Working With Rotary Tools
Rotary tools have so many uses that it’s hard to keep count. The Ryobi Hobby Station is designed to make your rotary tools even more versatile and help you reimagine what you can accomplish.
Ryobi Hobby Station: The Big Deal
The biggest and most obvious feature that the Hobby Station provides is the ability to use your tool hands-free. With your rotary tool mounted, you have the option to hold your project in both hands, which improves your control. Furthermore, it has several features that make it stand out.
The Ryobi Hobby Station features a keyless tool change system. To mount a rotary tool to the collar, you simply twist the collar’s rotating base around the tool’s neck to ensure it’s secure.
There’s a lockable height function that helps with routing. There’s also a drill press with a depth stop. You can even turn the tool connection up to 90° to the right for off-angle techniques.
The baseplate of the station is reversible. One side functions as a routing fence joint, and the other side acts as a downdraft to catch dust. On the left side, there’s a vacuum hookup that connects to most standard vacuum hoses. This feature ensures you can easily collect any dust that falls through the downdraft.
