Antikythera How The First Precision Drill Bit Was Made?
Antikythera Fragment #5 - The First Precision Drill Bit, by Clickspring.
There are a number of cutting tools implied in the wreckage of the Antikythera Mechanism, and one of the most interesting is the drill bit. In this video I explore a possible method of how an effective and precise drill bit could have been made in antiquity.
The video where I show the carburisation process in detail can be found here: https://youtu.be/V_Mp1fNzIT8
