The MaxiCraft drill, from RS has a 12V power pack, but can run on 9-18V d.c. With a suitable 18V power pack, the drill will run at 18000RPM

The chuck capacity is 3.2mm, and there are also some collets (which replace the chuck, which simply unscrews) which can be used with micro drill bits with a 2.5mm shank.
