Bought a set of mini chucks from AMazon and am very happy. Here is a pic of one that has a hex shank for use with screw guns like my B&D pictured. The low speed and weight of that screw gun made control of the process quite easy.

The set I got had two hex shank chucks and two straight for use in rotary tools. Hope this helps another modeler out there!

Steve, I was never able to control my small bits with an electric drill of any kind. Maybe I am drilling smaller holes, however I purchased a pin vice with 4 different chucks built in and just spin it back and forth between a finger and thumb to get a quick hole drilled.

Bought it at Scale Model Supplies on Lexington near University.
