my teacher told me its most likely to be a question about how to fix a power drill to a workbench. He's says its very likely that this will come up, so we need to look at dremel.

Another great site to evaluate some great design form is www.diy.com. Yes, It may be B&Q, but hey. Some great products

And don't stress out about the exam and your drawing techniques. It's not about how well you can draw, it's about how well you can communicate your ideas. If this means drawing little sketches with heavy annotation, then if that's gonna get ya the best marks, then so be it....?

Besides, by this time it's a little late to be worrying. If your calm and destressed when entering the exam, you'll do alot better that if you would have if you'd stressed all night long the night before. Trust me, I'm a doctor (yeah, right...)

what does it mean investigate the ergononmics??

apparently we can take wat ever we like in-even text book?!?

I reckon its got to be some sort of stand to turn a drill into a pillar drill. Have a look at rswww.com. There are a few there/

What the hell is a router table and how can it be applied to this?

What are forms of horizontal movement?!?
