I picked this up because I've recently started wire work and manually filing wire ends too time-consuming, even with a cup burr. It is very convenient! Really great for smoothing out wire ends for earrings. I haven't needed to drill into beads, but I've used it for filing some rough bead hole openings. Glad I finally picked one up.
Saw this demonstrated in the video, decided to try it. Used it twice, and so far I love it. Very easy to use.

I use copper filled silver plated wire, and the copper tends to show once the end is reamed.
This is great and reasonable and really works on making the holes on pearls larger, I have drilled the. Up to 1.8mm be sure to keep the pearl and drill tip WET with water. I have requested
That ArtBeads would have replacement tips for re order. They are difficult to find.
