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) to the drilling position by aligning the
with the marking (24).
For drilling in masonry, set the collar (3) to the
hammer drilling position by aligning the
with the marking (24).
For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired
setting. 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.

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