SELECTING THE DIRECTION OF ROTATION (FIG. G)
For drilling and for tightening screws, use forward (clockwise) rotation. For loosening screws or removing a jammed drill bit,
use reverse (counterclockwise) rotation.
• To select forward rotation, push the forward/reverse slider (2) to the left.
• To select reverse rotation, push the forward/reverse slider to the right.
• To lock the tool, set the forward/reverse slider into the centre position.
SELECTING THE OPERATING MODE OR TORQUE (FIG. H)
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) to the drilling position by aligning the symbol with the marking
(17).
• For drilling in masonry, set the collar (3) to the hammer drilling position by aligning the symbol with the marking (17).
• For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired setting. If you do not yet know the appropriatesetting, 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.
TWO-GEAR SELECTOR (FIG. I)
• For drilling in steel and for screwdriving applications, slide the two-gear selector (5) towards the front of the tool (1st gear).
• For drilling in materials other than steel, slide the two-gear selector (5) towards the rear of the tool (2nd gear).
DRILLING/SCREWDRIVING (FIG. A)
Select forward or reverse rotation using the forward/reverse slider (2).
• To switch the tool on, press the switch (1). The tool speed depends on how far you press the switch.
• To switch the tool off, release the switch.

HINTS FOR OPTIMUM USE

DRILLING
• 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 improve accuracy.
SCREWDRIVING
• Always use the correct type and size of screwdriver bit.
• If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.
• Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight line with the screw.
