Small hand drills are easy to use but need to be of high quality and precise to be satisfactory. That's why we have gone to Germany for these. Both are 3-jaw single pinion drills made of steel (with wood handles and alloy driving wheel). The Mini Drill (weighs 9-1/2 oz.) is only 9" long with a 6mm chuck (bit shanks need to be less than 1/4"). The Large Drill (weighs 20 oz.) is 12" long with a 10mm chuck (will handle bits up to 3/8" shanks). Although the Large Drill will theoretically "do it all", there will be times you will find the smaller drill an absolute delight to use - so we really recommend it to you also.

Schroeder Hand Drills
Reviewed By:   (Bethany, MO) 
I want to start off this review by mentioning that I purchased both of these German Hand Drills from Garrett Wade. When I received my first one, I knew I needed the larger one, too. They're just that well made. They ooze quality and have an ultra smooth action that can only be matched by antique versions of these tools that cost much more. As a traditional hand made knife maker, I drill thousands of holes a month and have no doubt this will be the only way I'll be doing it from now on. Pair these with a sharp set of bits, whether traditional fluted, regular, or Brad point bits, and you'll have a set of traditional tools that can't be beat. No more waiting for batteries to charge or run out on you half way way through the job. No more dealing with cumbersome extension cords to get tangled up in. These tools deliver exactly as promised. You can feel the quality with each rotation of the crank handle. Simple single pinion gearing ensures you won't feel the 'snagging' feeling that double pinion models can sometimes be notorious for. If you're looking for a safe, old-world, and convenient way of drilling spectacular and accurate holes in wood and other materials, look no further. Thanks Garrett Wade. This is the reason I always come back for all my tool needs.

I have used for rugged work and fine modeling. They work every bit as well as more expensive ones.

I own both of these Schroder eggbeater hand drills - 5 stars all the way!
Reviewed By:   (Boston, MA) 
Whether drilling pilot holes or doing exact precision drilling in fine woods, both of these single pinion eggbeater hand drills will do the job well. They both work smoothly with no runout - they drill round holes. :-) For the larger drill Schroder does make a dual pinion model which is identical to the larger single pinion model but has the second pinion gear added. I also have the dual pinion model but so Garrett Wade doesn't carry it. When and if they do, it is also a 5 star drill. You can't go wrong with either of these two drills and with the two sizes they do complement each other. Also, the price is more than reasonable given the high quality.
