I dare not photograph mine. I think they are both very similar. My solution was ready made, as have a 12 volt tiny AEG cordless, which is perfect. Also use Archimedes. john

My nephew works there. Repairs Trent engines.


I have a stand for a Dremmel type tool. Canít say I use it very much.

Pin vice does the sleeper drilling job very well. Every layout should have one, or two.

Thanks all for the help. I have now purchased one off the Bay of E for £5.

Says it's coming from London, but expected delivery date is the end of next week, so I can only assume it's taking a detour via China...

I had it in my mind this was for new flexy track, my own track that requires extra holes is a hand held Dremel plus safety glasses.

Thanks for posting the linc PL. Looked at it and got them, not arrived yet but my old one is a bit knackered to say the least. Very cheap hope they are OK expect at end of week. Will let you know what they are like.

Tinker I find it almost impossible to throw tools away. Itís almost sacrilege to do so.

i have just given 6 power tools to village project to do up old youth club. They were 2 mains drills, couple of sanders, old jigsaw, and a battery drill. 16 year olds are doing all the work. Shows how you hang on to tools. That still leaves me with 3 mains drills 3 sanders, and 2 jigsaws. All worked fine, but had had a lot of use. I cannot bring myself to actually throw any tool away,. I did send a case of stuff to my lad in UK, last year.

There are other types.
Hi PL just to say thanks for posting link for these pin drills. They arrived this morning Saturday and not used them yet but they look to be very good. Not bad for just £3.79 for 2 of them including an assortment of fitting sizes of jaws. and free post.
Thank you....................John
