This one is the last pin vise you'll ever need to buy.  Amazing quality, and its seemingly-unwieldy size and weight are actually very beneficial to control and precision.

Recently bought a set of these and have been using them happily for drilling tiny holes in styrene.  Not sure if they fit in a pin vise though.  I usually just use my index finger as the pivot point for the back of the bit and slowly spin them with my adjacent finger and thumb.  They were indispensable for drilling the tiny holes I needed for the styrene "cables" on my scratchbuilt F-16 JHMCS MTU.

Drill bits/pin vise
Posted by Bakster on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 11:49 AM

Hey folks..  I can use your input. I'd like to get a better set of fine drill bits. Along with that, a good quality pin vise that can accommodate them. I have not had good luck with pin vises. Either the chuck won't close down enough, or open enough, then I have had issues where the drill won't set straight. They are junk. I want some quality. Any thoughts? Does it exist?
