Hints for optimum use
Drilling
Always apply a light pressure in a straight line with the
u
drill bit.
Just before the drill tip breaks through the other side of
u
the workpiece, decrease pressure on the tool.
Use a block of wood to back up workpieces that may
u
splinter.
Use spade bits when drilling large diameter holes in
u
wood.
Use HSS drill bits when drilling in metal.
u
Use masonry bits when drilling in soft masonry.
u
Use a lubricant when drilling metals other than cast
u
iron and brass.
Make an indentation using a centre punch at the
u
centre of the hole to be drilled in order to improve
accuracy.
8
Screwdriving
Always use the correct type and size of screwdriver
u
bit.
If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small
u
amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.
Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight
u
line with the screw.
