To lock the tool, set the forward/reverse slider into the
u
centre position.
Selecting the operating mode or torque (fig. D)
This tool is fitted with a collar to select the operating mode and
to set the torque for tightening screws. Large screws and hard
workpiece materials require a higher torque setting than small
screws and soft workpiece materials. The collar has a wide
range of settings to suit your application.
For drilling in wood, metal and plastics, set the collar (3)
u
to the drilling position by aligning the symbol with the
marking.
For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired setting.
u
If you do not yet know the appropriate setting, proceed as
follows:
- Set the collar (3) to the lowest torque setting.
- Tighten the first screw.
- If the clutch ratchets before the desired result is
achieved, increase the collar setting and continue
tightening the screw. Repeat until you reach the correct
setting. Use this setting for the remaining screws.
Drilling in masonry (fig. D & E)
For drilling in masonry, set the collar (3) to the hammer
u
drilling position by aligning the symbol with the marking.
Slide the speed selector (5) towards the front of the tool
u
(2nd gear).
Speed selector (fig. E)
For drilling in steel and for screwdriving applications, slide
u
the speed selector (5) towards the rear of the tool (1st gear).
For drilling in materials other than steel, slide the speed
u
selector (5) towards the front of the tool (2nd gear).
Drilling/screwdriving
Select forward or reverse rotation using the forward/re-
u
verse slider (2).
To switch the tool on, press the switch (1). The tool speed
u
depends on how far you press the switch.

Hints for optimum use
Drilling
Always apply a light pressure in a straight line with the drill
u
bit.
Just before the drill tip breaks through the other side of the
u
workpiece, decrease pressure on the tool.
Use a block of wood to back up workpieces that may
u
splinter.
Use spade bits when drilling large diameter holes in wood.
u
Use HSS drill bits when drilling in metal.
u
(Original instructions)
Use masonry bits when drilling in soft masonry.
u
Use a lubricant when drilling metals other than cast iron
u
and brass.
Make an indentation using a centre punch at the centre of
u
the hole to be drilled in order to improve accuracy.
Screwdriving
Always use the correct type and size of screwdriver bit.
u
If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small
u
amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.
Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight line
u
with the screw.
