The Case for Micro Drill Adapters

If you’ve ever tried to drill a very small hole with a drill press or milling machine, you know how frustrating it can be.  You can’t get two pecks into your cycle before the drill breaks or you manage to keep from breaking your drill but can’t achieve the right depth.  You just don’t seem to have any control.

That’s when you need a micro drill adapter.

Micro Drill Adapters to Prevent Drill Breakage

The problem with the drilling with a drill press or mill is that you lose the feel of the tool.  A good machinist knows the right “feel” for the feed.  You just can’t get that with a small drill bit.

A micro drill adapter will give you the tactile sensation you need for control.  This prevents drill bit breakage.

The micro drill adapter fits into your chuck (keyed or keyless) and then mounts to your mill or press.  As the spindle rotates, the adapter gives you control of the bit.  Just grab the smooth ring and feed the drill by hand. This smooth, fingertip control is the difference between successful peck cycles and a pile of broken bits.

You get quicker setup as well.  Set your bit in the adapter before placing the adapter in the chuck.  Then you’re ready to drill.
