SETTING THE TORQUE (Applies to PD500C only) (FIG. G)
This tool is fitted with a collar 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.
Turn the collar (3) to the desired setting. If you do not yet know the appropriate setting, proceed
• Set the collar 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.

GENERAL DRILLING TIPS
This tool is not recommended for drilling in masonry.
Use sharp drill bits only
Drill bits for metal can be used for drilling holes in wood. These bits must be sharp and should be
pulled out frequently when drilling to clear chips from the flutes.
Support and secure work properly, as instructed in the safety Instructions.
Use appropriate and required safety equipment, as instructed in the safety instructions.
Secure and maintain work area, as instructed in the safety instructions.
Use light pressure until the hole is started enough to keep the drill bit from slipping out of it.
Apply pressure in a straight line with the bit. Use enough pressure to keep the bit biting but not
so much as to stall the motor or deflect the bit.
Hold the tool firmly to control its twisting action.
DO NOT CLICK THE TRIGGER OF A STALLED TOOL OFF AND ON IN AN ATTEMPT TO START
IT. DAMAGE TO THE TOOL CAN RESULT. To remove, twist the bit back and forth and straight out.
Minimize stalling on breakthrough by reducing pressure and slowly drilling through last part of hole.
Keep the motor running while pulling the bit out of a drilled hole. This will help reduce jamming.
Make sure switch turns tool on and off.
WARNING! It is important to support work properly and to hold the tool firmly to prevent loss of
control which could cause personal injury.
Use only mild soap and damp cloth to clean the tool. Never let any liquid get inside the tool; never
immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
IMPORTANT! To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and
adjustment (other than those listed in this manual) should be performed by authorized service
centers or other qualified service personnel, always using identical replacement parts.
