I didn't realize one had to build the tool when I ordered it... very apropos!

I have one too, in my opinion it's to chunky for plastic modelling. Low rpm too

Husky Power drill or Nothing Baby ! Drill to the center of the Earth !

It works... how well is another story. I'm not expecting anything amazing but I think it'll be fine for the small amount of drilling I do. Very much an impulse buy.

How you say "Gotcha" in Japanese ?

That's too funny that you have to build it yourself. I hope it works well enough for your future uses, else it's back to the mini drill. Still neat.

There's no rushing in this hobby. In the next year I might need to drill 5 holes... so we'll see how it goes, one hole at a time...

Ha, just made a hole for mounting a piece on a toothpick for painting. Worked like a charm.

It looks like it only comes with 1 drill bit, but also has 2 chucks. is that correct?

I have this tool too. It works really well, but the problem for me is the lonely drill.

Hope the instructions didn't call for drilling of parts due assembly
26. March 2019, 11:26
Yes, one drill bit and two chucks. Unfortunately the smallest chunk is not small enough for my tiny bits.

@Tom The same Problem, I have
@Lukasz I've ordered it in Japan. I didn't found it in Germany or neighbour countries

Having used it for awhile now I have to say this purchase turned out well and I'm surprised how much I like using it. It's not ideal but glad to have it in the toolbox. Now that I appreciate how nice it is to be able to drill tiny holes with precision and ease I'll be on the lookout for a better one that is more ergonomic and supports smaller bits.

Just get a Dremmel Tool, It does everything !

I have a Dremmel... but A) it spins at about 2 million rpm on lowest setting, and B) it's not battery power and C) it's too unwieldy.

Even though the drill I linked is a plugin style, it's for tiny stuff.
18. April 2019, 06:06
The Drill behind the Link looks interesting. But the size of the drills starts with minimum 0,7mm. In modelers reality is 0,3mm more a common size.

Aw snap. Thought that'd be small enough for you/the hobby... Good price though... The search continues

Martin, if you attach it to the adjustable NG2/E or NG5/E transformer, you can reduce the RPM to Polystyrol compatible numbers without losing too much power. Big fun for little money!
