MINI-DRILLIt is sometimes necessary to drill small holes in tight spaces, and dimensions of a drill to make it not allow. Rescued would offer a mini-drill, made on the basis collet pencil. This simple device will give you the opportunity to run drills with a diameter of 2.5 mm and will become an indispensable assistant for those craftsmen, who are fond of fashion jewelry and fine Handicrafts made of wood and plastic. I think that for modelers it will not be superfluous.


To make mini hand drill will not be difficult. As the Express option, you can just fasten the drill bit in the collet pencil type “Kimek” instead of the stylus. However, in this case to use the tool is not very convenient: the size of even a drill bit large. Therefore, the design should make some changes.
Hacksaw sawed a pencil in the middle, Unscrew the burner Assembly and pull the metal rod to 7 mm. reinstall the burner Assembly in place: our impromptu-drill has become much more compact.

Production technology following. Inside the button is usually located switch is a hollow cylindrical piece with prongs on the end.
