I have attempted to take the relativity of "Big-Small" down to the macro level. Here is a shot of three drill bits and a dime for scale. The largest bit is 1/16th inch in diameter. The two tiny ones have decimal sizes. I believe they are .040 and .080 inches. They are too small to use in your power drill. They require a handheld rotary clamp called a pin vise. One has to be extremely careful with these as they are very brittle and fragile.

Nikon D100, Sigma 17-35mm f2.8 lens, 36mm extension tube, SB800 flash pointed away from the subject. The background is the back of a slimline CD case.

Here is the camera setup I used to photograph the drill bits. This shot taken with my Minolta S414 in auto.
