Introduction: DIY PCB Drill

In this instructable I am going to show you how to make simple pcb drill out of household materials.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
soldering iron
old pen
some wires
motor
super glue
drill 0.5-1mm

Step 2:

Disassemble the old pen that you have and use this part.

Step 3:

Put a little super glue on the part that you took from the pencil on the motor and then insert the motor shaft. It should fit tightly, if it does not, roll a little paper on the motor's shaft.

Step 4:


Then solder the wires to motor.

Step 5:

Insert the drill into the part of pen and glue it.Drill must be around 0.5mm or larger.

IS it sufficient for a low budget CNC mill? It looks better than embedding a (costly) dremel in a CNC build!
