I'd seen this little hand drill around for a long time - but I thought it would be a "repeat tool", too similar to my Dremel, my regular Black and Decker drill, or my teeny-tiny little hand drill (which is actually more like a twisting screwdriver that works when it wants to). Had I known what I was missing out on, I would have gotten this as soon as Fiskars introduced it. It is THAT good.
Only having it for about a week, it's totally gotten a work out. I had no problems drilling through resin - and I drilled through the center (the thickest part) just to see what the drill would do. It drilled like a mighty drill - sans noise, electricity, and the hassle of getting out a bigger drill. I drilled through 3/4" copper blanks - and it ate them up! I even drilled through a penny - without any trouble at all. (You need a second person to hold whatever you are drilling, unless you use a vise or clamp.) The drill is easy to hold, fits well in the hand, is cute and compact, is very easy to crank...I just love it!
My daughter was playing with it and accidentally dropped it - on the concrete floor. As it flew across the garage, my heart sank. I just knew it would shatter and not work anymore. WRONG! There isn't a nick on it - the drill bit fell out, but I screwed it right back in. The drill comes with four bits - and the thinnest bit was in it during the..."accident" - but there wasn't any damage at all!
Yes, I love a lot of crafty stuff. My life revolves around arts and crafts. I pretty much live in a craft store - and wouldn't have it any other way. I always hesitate to say something is a "can't live without" - because really, how many craft items can you honestly not live without?Read more ›
Quick vocabulary list if you haven't used drills before, the handle is the part you turn. The chuck is the part of the drill you put the bit in, it's like a collar holding an X shape, you tighten the collar around the X to hold in the bit, or loosen the collar to release the bit. The bit is the part that drills.
The obvious limitations are that's is a craft drill with a plastic body, it's not meant to drill metal, or anything really serious, but for paper, plastic and that sort of thing, it's wonderful. You have control over speed, since it's manually powered, children can use it with supervision, and it's quiet. Remember to always using something you don't mind marking behind whatever you're drilling. Old phone books work well for me.
The bits it comes with are a little big for the fine drilling I wanted to do, but after I got it home and out of the package, I couldn't wait to try it. Changing the bit is easy. Hold the handle still while you twist the chuck open, slip in the bit, then turn the chuck to close. No chuck keys or anything like that, you do have to make sure it's tightened as far as you can tighten it by hand.I drilled some Halloween skulls into big beads to put on a dice pouch I knitted my son.
The skulls are plastic and hollow, and the sort of thing my flexible shaft could have melted if I wasn't paying attention.
I needed smaller bits, and I wasn't sure if it would work with bits that were a lot finer. I got a small pack of 10 sizes including a 1/16th and 5/64th bit. They worked fine once I tightened the chuck up enough.
This works great with soft woods, chip board, and most plastics including resin. It's quick and easy to use.
