A mini drill press demonstration. This was a request from Jackie Nolan. She saw that I owned a mini drill press during my live studio tour and asked me to show how to use it.
A mini drill press is an essential tool for me. I do a lot of piercings and having a mini drill press is a lifesaver. For some reason drilling with a flex shaft seems dodgy to me. I was always haunted by this feeling that the drill bit would break during the drilling session and hurt myself in the process. To me, operating a mini drill press feels safer. I’m sure some of you may feel the opposite way but in all honesty, I’ve used my mini drill press exclusively ever since it arrived at my door. My bench pin surface is pristine without a single hole in it.

The weirdest jewelry request I’ve got.
Here’s a brooch that I made a few years ago. I drilled a total of 270 holes in it using my mini drill press.
