Things to Consider When Using a Drill:

First of all, it will always be helpful to read the user manual that comes with the devices. It aims to facilitate the work of its users with its electrical and cordless options, is one of the products that should be found in every home and also serves as screwing thanks to its pluggable screw bits. Drills/screws not only make hundreds of home projects easier; It helps many tasks, from installing tables, shelves, shutters and furniture to meeting all maintenance/repair/renovation needs of a home.

For products such as paintings, mirrors, shelves, and wall cabinets to be hung on the wall, it may be necessary to first drill a hole in the wall with a drill and then screw it. That's where drills come in. With the drills that allow both functions to be completed faster without changing tools, the screwing process can be performed quickly by first opening the hole and then changing the relevant bits.

How to Use a Drill?

Do not neglect to wear safety glasses while using a drill, especially when drilling on wooden surfaces, too many wood pieces and splinters splash into the environment; protect your eyes. Also, make sure what is behind or under the material you are piercing and what is not. So don't actually have a pipe, electrical cable that you should pierce, or pierce the surface and cause a mess.

It is very important to use the correct drill bit for the job. Soft tips (* steel) are commonly used on more elastic surfaces such as wood. Harder tips (* carbon, cobalt) are used for metal surfaces. Spiral drill bits are a safe choice for many surfaces, while leaf and auger drill bits are more suitable for use on wood and similar soft surfaces.

Be careful to adjust the rotation direction of the drill from the "forward-backward selector" we mentioned above to turn Forward, ie clockwise.

If you are not familiar with the power and speed settings of the drill you are using, take care to start with slow speed, low torque settings and gradually increase it until you find the ideal speed and power required by the job. Place the drill on the surface where you want to drill at a proper angle and gently press the trigger, while you don't think the drill will do all the work for you, put pressure on the surface with your body and that's it. Making a hole with a drill is the easiest job in the world when you set the drill correctly and properly and choose the right size, size and type of drill bit for the surface.
