Archimedes hand drill

Looking to invest in a hand drill for jewellery making purposes, but not quite ready to invest in a heavy duty jewellery tool? An Archimedes hand drill is the perfect choice. Invest a small amount into this type of hand drill and you’ll be able to create holes in your precious metal designs for findings and bails. This small hand drill works with the motion of the collar moving up and down causing the drill bit to turn. Team it with a number of different drill bits to create the effect you’re looking for.

Busch Shank Drills for Jewellery Making

Made from steel and mounted on a 2.35mm shank, the Busch shank drills are sturdy and effective when used with a pendant drill or micromotor. Drill heads are interchangeable and are sold per piece.
