Just wanted to say Thanks!!
Best PCB drill press I've found on here yet.
I tried a couple of more elaborate ones.. too much slop.
I tried a couple of really basic ones.. not enough control.
Yours.. just right. I re-mixed it to work with my dremel Snake Extension and used built in bearings.
I've already rattled off a small handful of circuit boards that would have taken me 4x as long to drill, and multiple broken bits.

Good to know that my design was helpful for someone. By the way, yours re-mix is actually a better design than mine as it uses dremel extention which should be lighter than a dremel itself. A smaller moving mass on the drill bit's end is always a plus (in my opinion).
