These simple hand drills are an ancient, perfect design for drilling very tiny holes with minimal fuss. Simple to use, just press down on the top with a fingertip while working the bushing up and down the spiral screw shaft.

Available in two styles. The first, in solid brass, is 4-1/2" long and holds bits from 0.040" to 0.060" in its collet. The second is also solid brass, nickel plated, and is a little longer at 7-1/2". It has two collets with a capacity from almost 0 to about 0.055".

The drill bits (sold separately) range from 0.014 to 0.055". Five sizes (.014", .027" .035", .047" & .055") are available in a packs of two each size.

Made in India.

Not Smooth
Reviewed By:   (San Tan Valley, Arizona) 
Not easy to learn to use. Worst part is they are not smooth. I oiled them and it did not help. I would not buy them again.

If you do precision wood working or work with fragile materials, this is what you need. I used this to make new pilot holes in a fragile, wooden jewelry box, for a hinge replacement. A power drill might have ruined it. Works well.

They Work
Reviewed By:   (Cypress, TX) 
Items are both made in India. They seem well made for the price, but seem as if they could use a little lube or breaking in. Interesting devices, I'm looking forward to using them. Package was VERY well padded. Be sure and order the drill bits!

Archimedes Drills
Reviewed By:   (Storrs, CT) 
I have always found these types of manual drills very interesting ow, in doing marquetry and veneering, the small drill easily creates the opening for the saw blade in the packets. These drills are very well made and are nicely finished.
