Photo of "Micro Drill"

"How many times have you tried to drill really small holes using a big clumsy drill press? Oh, and how many broken drill bits & ruined work pieces? Well, having been there and done all that; in the early 1970's I designed and built this really sensitive miniature drill press for the small work. I use it on a regular basis and it has served me very well over the years." - Jerry

Here's a photo of the "Micro Drill":

I found a motor on Amazon called "Dc 12V 10000 RPM Mini" which has enough power using a 12v wall wort which actually puts out 14v. It is important to use the very small motor pulley, and not be tempted to make a larger one. The O-ring belt I am using is 0024.
