Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields when operating
your drill. Failure to do so could result in dust,
shavings, loose particles or foreign objects being
thrown into your eyes, causing possible serious
See Figure 1.
Before attempting to use your drill, familiarize yourself
with all operating features and safety requirements.
Your drill has a precision built electric motor. It should
be connected to a power supply that is 120 volts,
60 Hz, AC only (normal household current). Do not
operate this tool on direct current (DC). A substantial
voltage drop will cause a loss of power and the motor
will overheat. If your drill does not operate when
plugged into an outlet, double-check the power
LOCK ON BUTTON
Your drill is equipped with a "lock-on" feature, which is
convenient when continuous drilling for extended
periods of time is required.
Your drill has the feature of being reversible. The
design of the switch will not permit changing the
direction of rotation while the drill is running.
Your new drill has a keyless chuck. As the name
implies, you can hand tighten or release drill bits in
the chuck jaws.
Your drill has a variable speed switch designed to
allow operator control of speed and torque limits. The
speed and torque of your drill can be increased by
depressing the switch trigger.
Two convenient features provided on your drill are a
level and a belt clip. The level is recessed in the motor
housing on your drill. It can be used to keep drill bits
level during both horizontal and vertical drilling
operations. The belt clip is molded into the top of the
motor housing on your drill.
FOR HORIZONTAL DRILLING
Do not allow familiarity with
drill to make
careless. Remember that
fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict severe injury.
