Re: What do you guys use to drill holes in plastic and Resin?
Brian Paul Ehni <behni@...>
I use a homemade drill. I took a "Holland" motor (such as A-Line still sells
for an outrageous price, as I got mine for $3 apiece years ago), added a
flywheel at one end, and made a brass fitting to attach a Gyro chuck on the
other. I run it at about 5 volts. In and out; done. I usually only break 1
bit per 3 or 4 cars, and usually because I stupidly let it get bound up and
have to gingerly manually spin it backwards.

Subject: [STMFC] What do you guys use to drill holes in plastic and Resin?
I have had some set backs with plastic and resin kits drilling holes for
grabs and such i either brake the bit or it gets broken off in the model.
Do you have any tips on how to do this?
I'm using a pin vise.
