amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.

firmly tighten screws.
Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight line
with the screw.

pilot hole with a depth equal to the length of the screw.
A pilot hole guides the screw and prevents splintering or
distortion of the wood. For the optimum size of the pilot
hole, refer to the table below.
When screwing in hardwood, also drill a clearance hole with
a depth equal to half the length of the screw.
For the optimum size of the clearance hole, refer to the
