I use high cobalt bits from snap on. Brittle as hell but they don't bend. They do break however. I work as an ambulance mechanic and am always in a rush. I do this for fun why would I want to hurry?

Default diy cnc

Shapeoko | Precision by DefaultShapeoko | Precision by Default

I built a cnc router a while back with a mate of mine and the end result, whilst sturdy and grossly over engineered, was costly and took 2+ years to complete.

This is the cheapest, quickest light duty cnc machine I know of and best of all it's all open source to boot.

So I bought one.

I'm pretty close to getting it up and running - I'll happily report back as to how it does shortly...

How about switch to SMD

SMD is annoying without soldermask.

I have a (crappy) drill press right now, maybe I'll just upgrade to a nice dremel based one that will make it more tolerable.

1. What is the best dremel for pcb hole drilling? Is there a laser guided one?
2. What is the best type of wire drill bits for a dremel?
3. Best dremel holder drill press?

Check this out for a small cnc machine. Very simple if all you want to do is drill holes hundreds or thousands of times.

Hey guys, question about dremel drill bits:

Bosch BL0060 Wire Gauge 1 to 60 Black Oxide Twist Drill Bit Assortment with Metal Index, 60-Piece - Amazon.com

Are these good drill bits and will they work with any dremel, such as this?

3000 Series Rotary Tool Kit-3000-1/25H at The Home Depot

Just want to make sure before I buy all of this.
