OPERATION
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields when operating
tools. Failure to do so could result in objects
being thrown into your eyes, resulting in possible
serious injury.
Move the drill bit into the workpiece applying only
enough pressure to keep the bit cutting. Do not force
or apply side pressure to elongate a hole.
WARNING: Be prepared for binding or bit
breakthrough. When these situations occur, drill
has a tendency to grab and kick opposite to the
direction of rotation and could cause loss of
control when breaking through material. If not
prepared, this loss of control can result in
possible serious injury.
DRILLING
See Figure 9.
When drilling metals, use a light oil on the drill bit to
keep it from overheating. The oil will prolong the life of
the bit and increase the drilling action.
If the bit jams in workpiece or if the drill stalls, release
switch trigger immediately. Remove the bit from the
workpiece and determine the reason for jamming.

LEVEL DRILLING
See Figure 10.
A convenient feature provided with your drill is a level.
It is recessed in the motor housing on top of your drill.
It can be used to keep drill bit level during drilling
operations.
Fig. 9
When drilling hard smooth surfaces use a center
punch to mark desired hole location. This will prevent
the drill bit from slipping off center as the hole is
started. However, the low speed feature allows
starting holes without center punching if desired. To
accomplish this, simply operate your drill at a low
speed until the hole is started.
The material to be drilled should be secured in a vise
or with clamps to keep it from turning as the drill bit
rotates.
Hold tool firmly and place the bit at the point to be
drilled. Depress the switch trigger to start tool.

BATTERIES
Your drill's battery pack is equipped with 8 nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service
from each charging will depend on the type of work
you are doing.
The batteries in this tool have been designed to
provide maximum trouble free life. However, like all
batteries, they will eventually wear out. Do not
disassemble battery pack and attempt to replace the
batteries. Handling of these batteries, especially when
wearing rings and jewelry, could result in a serious
burn.
To preserve natural resources, please
recycle or dispose of properly.
This product contains nickelcadmium batteries. Local, state or
N i Cd
federal laws may prohibit disposal of
00
.822.88
nickel-cadmium batteries in ordinary
trash.
Consult your local waste authority for information
regarding available recycling and/or disposal options.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest
the following:
■ Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures above normal room temperature
will shorten battery life.
■ Never store batteries in a discharged condition.
Recharge them immediately after they are
discharged.
■ All batteries gradually lose their charge. The
higher the temperature the quicker they lose their
charge. If you store your tool for long periods of
time without using it, recharge the batteries every
month or two. This practice will prolong battery
life.
