Check out this video on the 21 Century.

I don't have my speakers hooked up. But from watching the video, it appears that the head that holds the cutter rocks back and forth while he runs the drill.
If I can see that in a tiny little window, then it can't be good for tolerances.
I've used my Lyman trimmer with the neck turning and power screwdriver attachment for quite a while with satisfactory results. There's certainly no discernable wiggle while it's cutting.
My main complaint with the Lyman is that there's no micrometer adjustment. So, it's trial and error for any new setup.
I sure wouldn't mind something better if it doesn't break the bank or cripple my hands.
