      The base of this  PanVice,  is bolted to the work surface with a
hand tight 1/4" bolt.  Not the original reason for the hole but it works.
      There are two holes for 1/4" bolts.

      Basically a vice that i made for scoring and cutting plastic, Vero
Board or edging plastic or metal.
      Probably one of my most useful tools.  

      It is a keyless chuck mounted to a roller bearing assembly.

      With the bearing sitting in the palm of my hand,  I can apply a good
amount of pressure while easily rotate the bit.  

      Brass and plastic are easy to drill by hand.
      Placing a small section of brass over a drill bit will help
prevent blemishing the surface being drilled when it punches

      The hole on the left was drilled without a brass sleeve over the bit.

      The hole on the right was drilled using a brass drill stop.
      I also use the keyless chuck for tapping and
for cutting small diameter tubeing.
