    I'll say this, the homemade mag drill you have made is probably one of the best I've seen made.
    Your attention to detail is superb also this could be one of the better video builds I have watched.

    That's a clever build, nicely done. However, I would caution anyone dismantling a microwave for parts to exercise some care. Many microwaves contain beryllium parts, which can be hazardous if they are ground or filed or broken. In particular the dust is very harmful if breathed. I'm not saying don't use the parts, but take a few minutes to understand what might be dangerous before diving in.

    beryllium parts, Is that anything like the beryllium scan they did trapping Picard in the farthest corner of the Enterprise? Still haven't figured out where he found a high corner in a round saucer shaped ship
