Drilling in Wood
Holes in wood can be made with the same twist drills used for metal. These
bits may overheat unless pulled out frequently to clear chips from the flutes.
For larger holes, use low speed wood bits. Work that is likely to splinter
should be backed up with a block of wood.
Drilling in Metals
Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are cast iron and
brass which should be drilled dry. The cutting lubricants that work best are
sulphurized cutting oil or lard oil; bacon grease will also serve the purpose.
Drilling in Masonry
Use carbide tipped masonry bits at low speeds. Keep even force on the drill
but not so much that you crack the brittle materials. A smooth, even flow of
dust indicates the proper drilling rate.
Operation as a Screwdriver
Select the desired speed/torque range using the dual range gear shift lever
on the top of tool to match the speed and torque to the planned operation.
Insert the desired fastener accessory into the chuck as you would any drill
bit. Set the torque adjustment collar (Figure 6). Make a few practice runs in
scrap or unseen areas to determine the proper position of the clutch collar.
CLEANING: With the motor running, blow dirt and dust out of all air vents
with dry air at least once a week. Wear safety glasses when performing this.
Exterior plastic parts may be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
Although these parts are highly solvent resistant, NEVER use solvents.
