This portable handheld drill comes with an X and Y axis, like a milling machine!

Titled the MODS, this modular drill set is pretty neat for the reason that it’s actually a portable VMC or vertical milling center. It uses a suction system and a lightweight frame to make drilling easier and reduce the strain on your hand as you hold your drill up to the drilling surface. Suction cups allow you to adhere the MODS to practically any surface, while a smart platform aligns the bit to be perpendicular to the drilling surface. That’s all you really need from that point onward! You can easily drill evenly spaced holes in a perfect line, thanks to the MODS’ X and Y axes, without ever really worrying about alignment!

The MODS is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2019.
