Want super clean holes in your latest PCB? Want your PCB drill-bit’s to last much longer? Tired of using your dremel as the drill press it clearly isn’t? For around $30, you can build this simple PCB drill-press.

$30 High-Speed PCB Drill Press – Link.

    $30 is a Lie, add the cost of an air compressor. The Dremel option is still way cheaper.

    While we are at it just add the cost of screwdrivers, a welder, a workbench, a tap set, screws, a property to run the thing from, etc… This REALLY cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to make!!!!

    Seriously. A lot of people already have air compressors, and this project is most certainly not the only thing you can do with one. They are a good shop investment.

    A dremel may be a good way for some (or most) people to go, but I think this could be a lot more accurate, and produce generally cleaner holes. IDK though.
