Term:  pin vice



[img_r=pinvice.jpg.207.52]A tool for holding small drill bits.
Some types fit into the chuck of an ordinary, DIY type power drill however here on TerraGenesis we'll generally be talking about the hand held type as shown in the photo. They are particularly useful when drilling small holes in plastic; because they are turned slowly by hand they will drill into the plastic whereas faster, power drills tend to cause melting.
The pin vice in the photo was manufactured by Draper.
