After i lost it several times while working on it, this is my entry.
The lid if fixed, so probably not as good as the others :).
The third picture shows a macarony .
It was fun making it, but never again!!

That is miniscule !!!

I’m glad you left the lid open. Eventually someone else will make one that will fit in your drawer !

There is an old urban legend that some English university’s engineering department sent an extremely small hardened drill bit to an engineering school in Germany. Then shortly thereafter, it was returned but the shaft had been drilled by an even smaller bit. Upon examination under a microscope they found engraving at the top inside of the shaft saying “Top this !”.

From the first picture I thought that a tooth had fallen out.

Tiny Thomas, What does WSBSBC stand for? How many times did you cut, poke, prick, or gouge your fingers making that thing?

@david grimes…interesting story, except that I had heard the story as a soviet/ussr world’s smallest drill bit that was on tour, stolen one night, then returned with a hold drilled in the shaft of the bit….also whilst on display in the USA if memory serves… may have to peruse snopes or to see if there’s any truth to either story….

I heard the story of American engineeers and Swiss engineers.
