low speed strong torque drill

My dremel is too fast to safely drill plastic without melting the hole and the collets won't take fine drills. My recchargable drill works nicely with larger bits. And I use a jewelers pinvise for wire drills ie #80. But for more numerous work I'd like to find a powered/recargeable tool. I've tried using a small rechargable screw driver with a hex conversion chuck but it runs too eleptically for precise fine work and tends to snap fine wire drill bits.
I saw one once on a site that sold tools for circuit board manufacturing. Anyone have any ideas?

Old as the Hills

July 10 2017, 4:04 AM 

I have several Como drills, as here:http://www.militarymodelling.com/forums/postings.asp?th=95825

UK Price list dated March 2017, so still current.

Mine had an electronic speed controller which would 'pulse' below say 100 rpm, but still drilled slow enough to not burn out plastic or snap 0.5mm drills.

Other Brands are available, Proxxon, Dremmel etc, but this has served me well for decades.

Dimmer switch

I once used a dimmer switch to control a receptacle that I plugged the Dremel into. I built it in a double electrical box. It slowed the Dremel down considerably.
