DRILLS

Model Rail (UK) - - Tools -

We need to make holes in all sorts of things, from big holes in base­boards to tiny holes in buffer­beams to ac­cept minia­ture brake pipes. An electric mini drill is per­fect for drilling holes in base­boards to ac­cept wires or bases for minia­ture cate­nary or trees. if you’re very care­ful, you can use it to drill small holes in mod­els, or for adding de­tail­ing ac­ces­sories, but most will prob­a­bly pre­fer to go with the hand-held pin vice for such delicate work.
