When I was still doing a lot of model making buying tiny drills at model shop prices was expensive. The Chinese are basically selling their drills for 1/10th the price and they're tungsten carbide and not HSS which is a major bonus

Nice looking mini drill press there I.Wheelwoman, I dont have a use for one like that myself since all the junk I work with and on requires brute type tools, but that is a nice looking tool.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
