3D printed handle replacement for my magnetic drill

I got tired of having the handle of the drill on the way so I designed and 3D printed a replacement part. The drill is a beast, so I decided to add an emergency stop as well in case it decides to consume my arm.

The final result. Works well and it has the word “Silferized” printed in it.
I also printed a cable guide out of the same material. The design was not originally mine, but I added two custom links which can attach to the handles of the drill.
The new on/off switch is a heavy duty rocker switch located under the emergency stop.
The switches took a lot of space and it was a bit tricky to get eveything to fit. The idea was to not leave any free space around the switches.
This is how the handled looked before. It took a lot of space and was on the way.
