Unbelievably gool for a price like that – Mini Electronic Drill with Cutting/Sharpening/Polishing Tools Kit Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Tried to drill a few holes in one of rejected PCBs -- the holes are nice and round. The drill itself is light and comfortable, permitting precision work. Very quiet, just somwhat louder than a computer CPU fan.
Cons:
PSU plug is not fitting the sockets common here in Russia, but I had a mating adapter. Included drill bits are very prone to slipping, so make sure to punch the center of a hole before you drill it (it's proper worksmanship anyway)
Other:
I'm going to see if I can replace power switch with a button. Probably will replace bearings with more resilient ones too.
Bottomline:
A good baseline to build upon with extra drill bits, drums and other tools (a circular saw maybe?). Perfect for drilling PCBs and similar work where more powerful electric tools would be too unwieldy.
