A laser drill was a handheld mining tool which utilized a laser to cut through rocks and other minerals.
Laser drills were used by the forced laborers in the dilithium mines on Pao'la. The prisoners on that world were able to reconfigure their drills into weapons to use against their Klingon captors. (TOS novel: In the Name of Honor)
