If you also have an interest in classic cars as well as tanks, the name of Weber Carburettors will be pretty familiar to you. Webcon, the UK distributors of Weber Carburettors has just come up with a drill set that will be just as relevant to modellers as car mechanics.
Featuring five of each of the following sized drills: .6mm .7mm .8mm .9mm 1.0mm 1.1mm 1.2mm 1.3mm 1.4mm 1.5mm 1.6mm 1.8mm 2.0mm 2.1mm 2.2mm 2.3mm 2.4mm 2.5mm 2.6mm 2.8mm 3.0mm 3.2mm along with a new style, double ended pin vice, the new kit is supplied in a handy case, and will be an essential purchase for the DIY enthusiast, model-maker and professional tuner alike.
With a name like Webcon behind it you can be sure the drills will be of top quality, but, having examined the set, the thing that struck me was the quality of the box. Obviously someone has actually used these drills (and dropped a few!) because the box features a double latch and an internal clear plastic cover to make sure you don’t accidentally spill all the drills out onto the floor. That alone is enough to put it above other manufacturer’s offerings!
Part number 9802405000 is priced at £37.95 plus vat. For details see www.webcon.co.uk
