Pcb driller

Yes,that’s it a machine to make drills to your pcb for through hole component


First of all ,i use a corner piece of wood, as base. I screw up an aluminium angle and i fasten this camera stand. On that camera stand i screw up the driller.And voila!!


i use this iron angle to get the aluminium angle in a absolutely vertical position.It is important

Next to the angle is power supply for the driller

You must use a spring, to restore the driller to it’s initial position after drilling. It should be carefully selected and placed, because we want to be neither tight not loosen.

And now ,maybe the most important part of the construction

I should find something to adapt here and also be easy changeable for bits. It was very hard to find the appropriate adapter in Europe

I am not sure ,i think it’s proxxon product ,but doesn’t matter.I should convert the part that clinch to the driller because worm is different.  You can see it opened here. I made this to my friend’s lathe
