Default Fiskars craft hand drill question

I'm thinking about purchasing one of these but would like opinions about it before I do. If you have one or have used one would you please tell me if you like it and if not why not. I'm either going to get this or the electric one from Michael's.

Thanks!

I have one. I like mine. I like the fact it is non-electric, so it can be used anywhere. However, it requires 2 hands--one to hold the drill, and the other to turn the crank. With that in mind, you will need to clamp your project to keep it from shifting or moving, while you are drilling.

And, don't drill a project on your dining room table without something protective, like a nice thick slab of wood underneath it . . . Ask me how I know . . .

I just saw the McGill paper drill demo'd yesterday. It was very easy to use. Not much effort was needed to turn the handle down to make the hole. It comes in a one, two or three hole version.

I attached a link from the first google search I did. I've never purchased from the place mentioned.
