Throw everything you know about CNC out of the window because there’s a new type of CNC machine that rewrites the notion of Computer Numerical Control. If don’t already know, in a traditional CNC machine, a chuck with drill bit (or whatever tool necessary) goes about cutting and drilling a material based on the program you load into it.

The World’s Smallest Working 3D-printed Cordless Drill is No Bigger Than Your Index Finger

To be clear, we are not sure if it is really the ‘world’s smallest’ 3D-printed cordless drill, but looking at how small it is and the fact that it is actually a working drill, it doesn’t really matter. It is still something to behold. And yes, it wasn’t a typo; this thing actually works. For what purpose? We are not quite sure. Created by Auckland-based engineer by the name of Lance Abernethy, this super tiny power tool is just 17mm tall, 13mm long and 7.5mm wide, and it is designed to accept a 0.5mm twist drill which, according to Lance, can pierce soft objects. Why of course, it can. A 0.5mm drill is almost like a needle, which I guess it doesn’t quite need drilling to pierce any soft objects, does it? However, the point here is not if it can or cannot pierce whatever; it is 3D-printed and it is working. A freaking 17mm tall power tool that works. That’s the point.

Metabo Introduces New Brushless Impact Wrench, Has 295 ft-lbs of Torque

with the advancement in electric motors and battery technology, it is a matter of time that all power tools head towards the cordless path. though it is obvious that having everything running on battery pack may pose another set of environmental problem, but that besides the point – the point is, being untethered offers the freedom of movement and lets us work within the constraint of space where cords and in the case of pneumatic-powered tools – hose, may not be able to and even allows us to work far away from power source, or again, in the case of pneumatic equipment, negate the need for cumbersome and noise generator. that said, the Metabo Brushless Impact Wrench (SSW 18 LTX 400 BL) is latest in such innovations that brings the traditionally power-hungry impact wrench into the cordless realm – thanks to the built-in brushless motor that provides the brute torque (up to a whopping 3,540 in-lbs or 295 ft. lbs) and a very capable Ultra-M 5.2 Ah 18V lithium-ion battery.
