Do you need a drill press but don’t have the space for one? Here are 5 of the best mini drill presses that will fit in your workshop or home. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, so there is bound to be something on this list that is perfect for you!
A drill press is a tool that holds your work piece steady and allows you to use the machine’s built-in tools for drilling holes. Mini drill presses are sized down versions of traditional models, but they still have all of the features you need in order to produce quality craftsmanship.
A lot goes into making sure that there is enough clearance around each small part of your project (especially if its jewelry). There may be small gears, chains, or a lot of tiny wires that have to be taken into account. These types of projects are where mini drill presses shine because they can provide the right amount of space for your work without compromising on power and stability.
Why You Need One?
It doesn’t get much more frustrating than trying to make a hole in something with a handheld drill. You have to apply just the right amount of pressure, hold your arm at an awkward angle for hours on end, and hope that you are precise enough not to nick whatever it is that you’re drilling into.
All the while being careful not to lose control over what’s going on because these things tend to kick back like crazy when they hit metal or hardwood. A mini drill press can help alleviate some of this frustration by providing precision where needed so you don’t need as much muscle power.
