Hobby Hand Drill

The versatile and compact Hobby Hand Drill is a precision tool designed for drilling and tapping in tight and confined spaces. Resembling a pen in design, it is easily controlled with one hand, and the Swivel Head allows for accurate drilling angles.

Hobbyists and enthusiasts who work with models, miniatures, and other small projects will find this type of hand drill, also known as a Pin Vise, particularly useful. It is ideal for creating tiny perforations and holes in materials such as plastic, resin, wood, and metal, thanks to its compact size and precise control.

The Pin Vise is constructed with lightweight and durable aluminum, making it easy to handle and resistant to wear and tear. Its freewheeling head ensures smooth and consistent twist-bit rotation, reducing the risk of damage to the material being drilled.

Compared to larger, more powerful drills, the Hobby Drill offers greater precision and control, as it has been designed specifically for small-scale work. It enables users to create highly accurate perforations, even in confined spaces.

To ensure safe and careful use, always wear protective gear, including safety goggles and gloves, and securely clamp or hold the material being drilled in place to prevent slipping or movement.

Model Drill Bits

Model drill bits are an essential tool for any model hobbyist or miniature DIY project. These tools are specially designed to make small holes in materials such as plastic, wood, and metal accurately and effortlessly.

They are very small in diameter, ranging from 0.7 to 2.0 mm, making them ideal for working on small-sized plastic, resin, and metal parts. In addition, they are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, for example, the Chisel Tips used in the HHobby Carving Set, or also Diamond Burr Set including many different grits, allowing you to choose the right one depending on the type of project and material you are working with.

To use a model twist bit, you need a hobby drilling tool that is specially designed to work with small, precise parts. The tools have an adjustable clamping nipple to hold the bits securely while working and at the same time make them interchangeable.

How to use a hand drill 

The Green Stuff World mini hand drills are a compact and easy-to-use tool. It is manual, so it has no wires and does not need power or a battery to operate. All you have to do is place the right twist bit for each occasion and turn it on the surface to be drilled. The steps to prepare these mini-drills are as follows:

  1. Choose the thickness of the twist bit depending on the diameter your hole needs.
  2. Unscrew the tip of the drilling tool exposing the inside of the device. 
  3. The exposed part can be used at both ends. One side is more suitable for smaller bits, while the opposite side holds wider bits better. Position it in the most suitable direction. 
  4. Insert the hand twist bit into the tool. 
  5. Screw the tip back on, which will act as a pressure immobilizer for the twist bit. 
  6. Rest the small craft drilling tool on the surface to be drilled and, once well positioned, start turning the device with a little pressure until the hole is to your liking. 

Some surfaces can be slippery for modeling drills. To avoid damaging the material, you can use one of the tips of the Hobby carving set to mark the exact place to pierce, which will serve as a guide for the twist bit.
