Review

This drill/grinder has a nice weight and feel to it. The speed range is good with enough power that you're not going to stall this easily.

The flexible shaft is great. The drill has a hoop to allow it to be hung above the workbench.

I used the shaft with the sanding bobbin as shown to shape the connecting rod on my engine project. Before...

...after...

OK, with some varnish applied as well.

The drill stand is great if you need to drill lots of small (up to 3.2mm) holes, especially useful if you work on electronic boards.

Price: Drill/Grinder approx 50.00 from Axminster Tool Centre.

Price: Flexible shaft approx 32.00

Price: Drill stand approx 45.00

Conclusion

A great drill and would highly recommend the flexible shaft.
