Why You Should Use Micro Drill Adapters and Save Bits

Ever tried to drill a really small hole with a drill press or milling machine? If you said “Yes” then  you already know it can be frustrating.  Two pecks into the cycle and the drill breaks.  Maybe you manage to keep the drill bit in one piece but you can’t achieve the right depth.  Its like you are out of  control.

It’s time for a micro drill adapter.

The biggest problem with drilling a small hole with a drill press  is that you don’t have the feel of the tool.  Any machinist worth their salt knows the right “feel” for the feed.  You just can’t get that with a small drill bit on a press.

But, attach a micro drill adapter and you regain the tactile sensation you need for control.  And you prevent drill bit breakage to boot.

A micro drill adapter fits into your chuck and mounts to your mill or press.  As the spindle rotates, the adapter allows you to control the bit.  All you need to do is grab the smooth ring and peck the drill by hand.  The adapter gives you smooth, fingertip control for successful peck cycles instead of broken bits.

Set up is quick too.  All you have to do is set your bit in the adapter and then place the adapter in the chuck.  Now you’re ready to work.
