It will work for a little while. I use dremels and flex shafts a lot in my shop, but drilling holes Except in my miniatures is best left to a real drill press. The dremel's bearings and motor were not designed for those kind of pressures and torq issues and will wear out pretty fast. Especially if drilling a lot of holes 3/32 or larger.
Get a cheap used/new bench press or you will wind up spending more replacing your dremel (and still only have the dremel).
