I would imagine that it would create a lot of plastic dust or melting.

Very! Was thinking about doing something like this for my 3x3x3s. The drill idea is simple and cheap (if you already have one in your shed that is. Which I don't). And just using a center cap as a bit is ingenious. A+.

My new Mefferts Minx is already a very good turner after some simple modding though.

Or just loosen it alot, do the megaminx edge mod, use the AV corner mod, Lubix(shock oil) the core, set to correct tensions.
No, there is no substitute for worn in mf8. I do like the av mod on it too.

I would imagine that it would create a lot of plastic dust or melting.
Just like dust gathers after months of solving and wearing in.

I average 1:15 with a worn in, modded mf8 and this set up was quite cheap for me personally. I can do about 6 months of breaking in solves. In about two hours on this machine.

I think I going to go buy a Megaminx and thousands of dollars of equipment so I can do this.
You can buy a drill on Amazon for about $22, the Mega for $10, and just use your hand to hold it. There you have a broken in megaminx for less than $50.

And if I remember grade school math, 22 < 1000(s)
