The MaxiCraft drill, from RS, runs on 9 - 18V d.c, and has a 12V power pack.

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.


Micro Drills, Collets and Soldering Iron Bits are stored in this small cabinet.
