TOOL review: HobbyMate Micro2s Ultimate Set


HobbyMate Micro2s Ultimate SetPhoto

I have here another review of a tool from Hobbymate. This time it's the Micro2s Ultimate Set. Unlike the photo in the HobbyMate website, the Micro2s Ultimate set actually comes inside a very nice " lunch box " type clear casing. Which looks really great and nice to display ( hehehe ). However if you plan to actually use the tool, the box could be a great box for other small tools or any scale modeling scraps.

Once you order the set, the package comes with the Micro2s PRO which is another nifty nice tool and a great addition to your tool collection. The Micro2s ultimate set comes with a drilling stand, a 230volt power supply adaptor, a couple of orange attachments, a couple of chuck sizes and a couple of drill bits. A simple and straight forward manual comes with the set as there is a bit of need for assembly of the drilling stand. The set even has a small screwdriver for assembling the whole thing. You won't need anything other than a wall outlet once you order the tool.

The black drilling stand is made of heavy plastic and is surprisingly steady enough for any Gunpla drilling jobs. I am thinking of screwing a thin wooden block at the bottom as I just love the heavy feeling when using tools like this. But there is actually no need to add them. The stand can be adjusted in 3 different heights depending on your job requirement. This set is very versatile for a drilling tool.

What is the tool good for?





Well I have been using it for my usual " exposing MG internals technique " on my the O II project. It is ten times faster to use this tool on the said technique than manually boring all those holes with a pinvise. Manually boring those holes is a bit painful to your hands after some time. This tool is simply making my work 10 times faster than before. Now here are the photos of the whole set.
