    I agree with Dennis. I had one of the big drills that sat unused. Too clunky, no finesse for fine work, took up far too much room. A drill needs to cater for all needs of jewellery making whatever size. Mine went off to a woodworker who thinks it’s great

    Thanks all. Space is at a premium in my house clock/jewellery/office, and I have a thumping great pillar drill in the garage workshop so I recon the dye is cast!

    I'm not going to be running it for hours and so noise isn't an issue.
    The machines I've looked at have rated very well for the accuracy of drilling.
    We kind of know what suits you now especially as so many are working in small spaces these days!

    Sorry, you'll have to explain that with a little more clarity.
    Is that the regal "we"?

    People buy a lot of things that are utter junk. Certain large jewellery brands for example... It means nothing other than the sales figures are high.

    I think my friends were in fact making a personal comment as two in particular know my set up with horology and jewellery.
