I tried drilling some small holes and was not very successful. When the Yellow DC motor jumped at me due to its colour, 50W seemed just good enough for small drills, I gave it a chance. Maybe a gear reduction is a future addition. The small 1 inch vise I made for fun some time ago, now it has a home.

The spindle is a ER11 collet holder with 12 mm shank. There is a rack and pinion lifting the table up while the drill is fixed. I thought this is easier to make than a quill. It works O.K. for small drills up to 2 mm. Pulling the lever fully down lifts the table about 20 mm.

A good looking piece of equipment. There have been times when I really could have used one of these, quite envious. Cheers, Peter
