Hi Andrew,
we used a handheld drill for several years.
The detailed description can be found in an older post on coral-list:

There are similar drills on the market, no need to buy expensive stuff.
 Maintenance: pretty simple: rinse in freshwater, run with air to dry the
tool, and apply oil generously inside the drill and on all moving parts.

The original paper is available on Research Gate:

Let me know if you need more details,
