I finally dawned upon me whilst attempting to drill 1mm holes with a 540 motor fitted with a mini chuck that my hands are no longer steady enough to use them to accurately drill holes and current drill press only just takes 2mm drills just.
While perusing an ebay sellers site I found a Mini drill press it takes .6mm to 6.5mm it set me searching for more like it.
This is the cheapest I found,

I found a solution

So I treated myself to a Christmas present.

As long as ya hands are steady mate found I couldn't hold the the little 380 and 540 powered drills steady enough to clean up the 1.2mm & 1.6mm holes in the brass mounting holes on Volcanoes wheel rims.
