Super little DrillI have had one of these for several years and it has been a fine workhorse for model making and model engineering. Easy to use and very smooth and accurate, I don't know of any rival in the market. It has its limitations on drill size but is really designed for small drills under about 5mm and excels when used with the proxxon drill range using collets. All in all probably the most useful proton tool I own.
