JRB9019 Posted December 4, 2015 Share #1 Posted December 4, 2015 Hi all I've noticed that many of the experienced modellers here have their workshops kitted out with all sorts of machinery that would put the majority of the factories around here to shame! When I started modelling, I have tried to get away with the least amount of tools possilbe - mainly due to financial restrictions. However, I see time and time again drills and drill stand / pillar drills being used for drilling through masts and yards - anything where a deep straight hole is critical. To date, I have a hand-drill and try to keep things as straight as possible - but it really isn't easy and I've messed a few things up such as when I have to drill top - down through dowelling, so my thoughts turned to drills and drill stands. I have looked on Ebay and the like and have found several examples e.g.Dremel, and was wondering if anyone can recommend anything half decent, use it for modelling purposes so it needs to do the job, but without breaking the bank. If possible, any advise would be appreciated for UK suppliers.... Thanks John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
