Mako Quick Change Drill Handle (pin vice)

Recommended Posts

While waiting for the garage to do a WOF today I visited the local Warehouse to fill in time and this is what I found.

Mako Mako Quick Change Drill Handle | The Warehouse -

It's got a 'three gripping collet on head' which is basically a miniature drill chuck and includes 9 drill bits. It feels as good as a pin vice that I paid more than 3x the amount which can't take anywhere near the range of drill sizes.

Hi Bram,

I've been using one of these, or something that looks identical for quite a few years now - only suggestion I have is to put some teflon lube into the hand end bearing... makes it a lot more comfortable when doing those pesky holes into brass and the like..


Mine didn't come with drill bits - $7 - for the lot, what a bargain. Your LHS will charge you more than that for just a couple of the drill bits..

Whilst we're on the subject, if you have a Dremel - get the three jaw chuck for that too... Bunnings have them for around $24... an invaluable aid for fitting bits to a Dremel...saves messing around with spanners and different collet sizes...

I picked up one of those from eBay - $12 include 36 drill bits of various sizes from 0.5mm - 3mm including some of those fine drills that have a large shaft on them.

Do you happen to have a link to the appropriate eBay site, DM?



Only one I can find that’s already landed from China
