Thanks for sharing this! I looked for some description, scratched my head, then I'm guessing anyone else in the room could have seen the lightbulb go on and the Aha! look and a smirk on my face... :-p This is the single most clever thing that I have seen in quite some time. Sometimes the beauty of something is in it's simplicity. It's kinda ironic b/c I JUST had my USB microscope out 2 nights ago reading the text off of faintly labeled chips. OK, I'm going to put down my keyboard and dig out my Dremel drill stand!
P.S. FWIW - I have an old air compressor that wouldn't inflate a tire, but does make a decent pulse of puffed air. I run a hose (no nozzle) up the stand and zip tie it so it aims a the drill bit and keeps the area clear of drill shavings so I can actually SEE where the next hole will be.
