SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR POWER TOOLS
When using power tools, always observe the safety regulations applicable in your country to reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock and personal injury. Read the following safety instructions before attempting to operate this product. Keep these
instructions in a safe place.
General Safety Rules
WARNING! Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury. The term “power tool” in all of the warnings listed below refers to your mains operated (corded) power tool
or battery operated (cordless) power tool.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
1. WORK AREA
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases
or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. ELECTRICAL SAFETY
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs
with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away
from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
3. PERSONAL SAFETY
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a
power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention
while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in the off position before plugging in. Carrying power tools
with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a
rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool
in unexpected situations.
f. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of these devices can reduce dust related hazards.
4. POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do
the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool
or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to
bind and are easier to control.
5. BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
a. Ensure the switch is in the off position before inserting battery pack. Inserting the battery pack into power
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
b. Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of
battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
c. Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a
risk of injury and fire.
d. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects like paper clips, coins, keys, nails,
screws, or other small metal objects that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the
battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
e. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally
occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery
may cause irritation or burns.
6. SERVICE
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Electrical Safety
The electric motor has been designed for one voltage only. Always check that the power supply corresponds to the voltage
on the rating plate. 240 V AC means your tool will operate on alternating current. As little as 10% lower voltage can
cause loss of power and can result in overheating. All DEWALT tools are factory tested; if this tool does not operate,
check the power supply. Your DEWALT tool is double insulated, therefore no earth wire is required.
• Young children and the infirm. This appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without
supervision.Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with this appliance.
• Replacement of the supply cord. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an
authorised DEWALT Service Centre in order to avoid a hazard.
Extension Cords
CAUTION: Use only extension cords that are approved by the country’s Electrical Authority. Before using extension
cords, inspect them for loose or exposed wires, damaged insulation and defective fittings. Replace the cord if necessary.
Additional Safety Instructions
• Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact hidden
wiring. Contact with a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.
• Allow the motor to come to a complete stop before withdrawing the blade from the kerf (the slot created by
cutting). A moving blade may impact the workpiece causing a broken blade, workpiece damage or loss of control
and possible personal injury.
• Keep handles dry, clean, free from oil and grease. This will enable better control of the tool.
• Keep blades sharp. Dull blades may cause the saw to swerve or stall under pressure.
• Clean out your tool often, especially after heavy use. Dust and grit containing metal particles often accumulate
on interior surfaces and could create an electric shock hazard.
• Do not operate this tool for long periods of time. Vibration caused by the operating action of this tool may cause
permanent injury to fingers, hands, and arms. Use gloves to provide extra cushion, take frequent rest periods, and
limit daily time of use.
WARNING: Always wear eye protection while operating this power tool.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains
chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber (CCA).
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these
chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are
specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas with soap and water. Allowing dust to get into your
mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
WARNING: Use of this tool can generate and/or disburse dust, which may cause serious and permanent respiratory or
other injury. Always use NIOSH/OSHA approved respiratory protection appropriate for the dust exposure. Direct particles
away from face and body.
CAUTION: When not in use, place tool on its side on a stable surface where it will not cause a tripping or falling
hazard. Some tools with large battery packs will stand upright on the battery pack but may be easily knocked over.
CAUTION: Wear appropriate personal hearing protection during use. Under some conditions and duration of use,
noise from this product may contribute to hearing loss.
• The label on your tool may include the following symbols. The symbols and their definitions are as follows:

Important Safety Instructions for Battery Packs
Your tool uses a DEWALT battery pack. When ordering replacement battery packs, be sure to include catalog number
and voltage. Extended Run-Time battery packs deliver more run-time than standard battery packs. Consult the chart at
the end of this manual for compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
NOTE: Your tool will accept either standard or Extended Run Time battery packs. However, be sure to select proper voltage. Batteries slowly lose their charge when they are not on the charger, the best place to keep your battery is on the
charger at all times.
The battery pack is not fully charged out of the carton. Before using the battery pack and charger, read the safety
instructions below. Then follow charging procedures outlined.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS
• Do not incinerate the battery pack even if it is severely damaged or is completely worn out. The battery pack
can explode in a fire.
• A small leakage of liquid from the battery pack cells may occur under extreme usage or temperature conditions.
This does not indicate a failure. However, if the outer seal is broken and this leakage gets on your skin:
a. Wash quickly with soap and water.
b. Neutralize with a mild acid such as lemon juice or vinegar.
c. If battery liquid gets into your eyes, flush them with clean water for a minimum of 10 minutes and seek immediate medical attention. (Medical Note: The liquid is 25–35% solution of potassium hydroxide.)
• Charge the battery packs only in DEWALT chargers.
• DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids.
• Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed 105°F
(40˚C) (such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
DANGER: Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. If battery pack case is cracked or damaged, do not insert
into charger. Electric shock or electrocution may result. Damaged battery packs should be returned to service center for recycling.
NOTE: Battery storage and carrying caps are provided for use wheneverthe battery is out of the tool or
charger. Remove cap before placing battery in charger or tool.
WARNING: Do not store or carry battery so that metal objects can contact exposed battery terminals.
For example, do not place battery in aprons, pockets, tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose
nails, screws, keys, etc. without battery cap. Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery
terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US
Department of Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce
or on airplanes (i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So
when transporting individual batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well insulated from materials
that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
CAUTION: Battery pack must be securely attached to tool. If battery pack is detached, personal injury may result.
The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation) Seal on the nickel-cadmium battery (or battery
pack) indicates that the costs to recycle the battery (or battery pack) at the end of its useful life have
already been paid by DEWALT. In some areas, it is illegal to place spent nickel-cadmium batteries in the
trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program provides an environmentally conscious
alternative.
RBRC™ in cooperation with DEWALT and other battery users, has established programs in the United States to facilitate
the collection of spent nickel-cadmium batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural resources by
returning the spent nickel-cadmium battery to an authorized DEWALT service center or to your local retailer for recycling.
You may also contact your local recycling center for information on where to drop off the spent battery.
RBRC™ is a registered trademark of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation.
Important Safety Instructions for Battery Chargers
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS: This manual contains important safety instructions for battery chargers.
• Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on charger, battery pack, and product using battery
pack.
DANGER: 240 volts are present at charging terminals. Do not probe with conductive objects. Electric shock or electrocution may result.
WARNING: Do not allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, charge only DEWALT nickel cadmium rechargeable batteries. Other types of
batteries may burst causing personal injury and damage.
CAUTION: Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged in to the power supply, the exposed charging contacts
inside the charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited
to, steel wool, aluminum foil, or any buildup of metallic particles should be kept away from charger cavities. Always
unplug the charger from the power supply when there is no battery pack in the cavity. Unplug charger before attempting
to clean.
• DO NOT attempt to charge the battery pack with any chargers other than the ones in this manual. The charger
and battery pack are specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any uses other than charging DEWALT rechargeable batteries. Any other
uses may result in risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger. This will reduce risk of damage to electric plug and
cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage
or stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension cord could result in risk
of fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for safety. The smaller the
gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is 16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge.
When using more than one extension to make up the total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least
the minimum wire size.

• Do not place any object on top of charger or place the charger on a soft surface that might block the ventilation slots and result in excessive internal heat. Place the charger in a position away from any heat source. The
charger is ventilated through slots in the top and the bottom of the housing.
• Do not operate charger with damaged cord or plug — have them replaced immediately.
• Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way. Take it
to an authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it to an authorized service center when service or repair is required.
Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock, electrocution or fire.
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet before attempting any cleaning. This will reduce the risk of electric
shock. Removing the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers together.
• The charger is designed to operate on standard household electrical power (240 Volts). Do not attempt to use
it on any other voltage. This does not apply to the vehicular charger.
Using Automatic Tune-Up™ Mode
The Automatic Tune-Up™ Mode equalizes or balances the individual cells in the battery pack allowing it to function at
peak capacity. Battery packs should be tuned up weekly or after 10 charge/discharge cycles or whenever the pack no
longer delivers the same amount of work. To use the Automatic Tune-Up™, place the battery pack in the charger and
leave it for at least 8 hours. The charger will cycle through the following modes.
1. The red light will blink continuously indicating that the 1-hour charge cycle has started.
2. When the 1-hour charge cycle is complete, the light will stay on continuously and will no longer blink. This indicates that the pack is fully charged and can be used at this time.
3. Whenever the pack is left in the charger after the initial 1-hour charge, the charger will begin the Automatic Tune-Up™
Mode. This mode continues up to 8 hours or until the individual cells in the battery pack are equalized. The battery
pack is ready for use and can be removed at any time during the Tune-Up™ Mode.
4. Once the Automatic Tune-Up™ Mode is complete the charger will transition to a maintenance charge; the indicator
light shuts off when the automatic Tune-Up™ Mode is complete.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE USE
Chargers
Your tool uses a 7.2, 9.6, 12.0, 14.4, or 18.0 Volt DEWALT charger. Your battery can be charged in DEWALT 1 Hour
Chargers, 15 Minute Chargers or Vehicular 12 Volt Charger. Be sure to read all safety instructions before using your
charger. Consult the chart at the end of this manual for compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
Charging Procedure (Fig. 1)
DANGER: 240 volts are present at charging terminals. Do not probe with conductive objects. Electric shock or electrocution may result.
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate outlet before inserting battery pack.
2. Insert the battery pack into the charger, as shown in Figure 3, making sure the pack is fully seated. The red (charging)
light will blink continuously indicating that the charging process has started.
3. The completion of charge will be indicated by the red light remaining ON continuously. The pack is fully charged
and may be used at this time or left in the charger.
Indicator Light Operation
Charge Indicators
Some chargers are designed to detect certain problems that can arise with battery packs. Problems are indicated by the red
light flashing at a fast rate. If this occurs, reinsert battery pack into the charger. If the problem persists, try a different battery
pack to determine if the charger is OK. If the new pack charges correctly, then the original pack is defective and should be
returned to a service center or other collection site for recycling. If the new battery pack elicits the same trouble indication as
the original, have the charger tested at an authorized service center.
HOT/COLD PACK DELAY
Some chargers have a Hot/Cold Pack Delay feature: when the charger detects a battery that is hot, it automatically starts
a Hot Pack Delay, suspending charging until the battery has cooled. After the battery has cooled, the charger automatically
switches to the Pack Charging mode. This feature ensures maximum battery life. The red light flashes long, then short
while in the Hot Pack Delay mode.
PROBLEM POWER LINE
Some chargers have a Problem Power Line indicator. When the charger is used with some portable power sources such as
generators or sources that convert DC to AC, the charger may temporarily suspend operation, flashing the red light with two
fast blinks followed by a pause. This indicates the power source is out of limits.
LEAVING THE BATTERY PACK IN THE CHARGER
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the red light glowing indefinitely. The charger will keep the
battery pack fresh and fully charged.
NOTE: A battery pack will slowly lose its charge when kept out of the charger. If the battery pack has not been kept on
maintenance charge, it may need to be recharged before use. A battery pack may also slowly lose its charge if left in a
charger that is not plugged into an appropriate AC source.
WEAK BATTERY PACKS: Chargers can also detect a weak battery. Such batteries are still usable but should not be
expected to perform as much work. In such cases, about 10 seconds after battery insertion, the charger will beep
rapidly 8 times to indicate a weak battery condition. The charger will then go on to charge the battery to the highest
capacity possible.
Important Charging Notes
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the battery pack is charged when the air temperature is
between 65°F and 75°F (18°- 24°C). DO NOT charge the battery pack in an air temperature below +40°F (+4.5°C),
or above +105°F (+40.5°C). This is important and will prevent serious damage to the battery pack.
2. The charger and battery pack may become warm to touch while charging. This is a normal condition, and does not
indicate a problem. To facilitate the cooling of the battery pack after use, avoid placing the charger or battery pack
in a warm environment such as in a metal shed, or an uninsulated trailer.
3. If the battery pack does not charge properly:
a. Check current at receptacle by plugging in a lamp or other appliance
b. Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch which turns power off when you turn out the lights.
c. Move charger and battery pack to a location where the surrounding air temperature is approximately 65°F - 75°F
(18° - 24°C).
d. If charging problems persist, take the tool, battery pack and charger to your local service center.
4. The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs which were easily done
previously. DO NOT CONTINUE to use under these conditions. Follow the charging procedure. You may also
charge a partially used pack whenever you desire with no adverse affect on the battery pack.
5. Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged into the power supply, the exposed charging contacts inside the
charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited to, steel
wool, aluminum foil, or any buildup of metallic particles should be kept away from charger cavities. Always unplug the
charger from the power supply when there is no battery pack in the cavity. Unplug charger before attempting to clean.
6. Do not freeze or immerse charger in water or any other liquid.
WARNING: Don't allow any liquid to get inside charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: Never attempt to open the battery pack for any reason. If the plastic housing of the battery pack breaks or cracks,
return to a service center for recycling.
OPERATION
FIG. 2
FIG. 2A
Installing and Removing the Battery Pack
NOTE: Make sure your battery pack is fully charged.
To install the battery pack into the tool handle, align the base of the tool with the notch inside the tool’s handle (Fig. 2)
and slide the battery pack firmly into the handle until you hear the lock snap into place as shown in Figure 2A.
To remove the battery pack from the tool, press the release buttons and firmly pull the battery pack out of the tool
handle. Insert it into the charger as described in the charger section of this manual.
Variable Speed Switch
To turn the tool on, squeeze the trigger switch. To turn the tool off, release the trigger switch. Your tool is equipped with
a brake. The chuck will stop as soon as the trigger switch is fully released.
The variable speed switch enables you to select the best speed for a particular application. The farther you squeeze the
trigger, the faster the tool will operate. Use lower speeds for starting holes without a centerpunch, drilling in metals or
plastics, driving screws and drilling ceramics, or in any application requiring high torque. Higher speeds are better for
drilling in wood, wood compositions and for using abrasive and polishing accessories. For maximum tool life, use variable speed only for starting holes or fasteners.
NOTE: Continuous use in variable speed range is not recommended. It may damage the switch and should be avoided.
Forward/Reverse Control Button (Fig. 3)
A forward/reverse control button determines the direction of the tool and
FIG. 3
also serves as a lock off button. To select forward rotation, release the
trigger switch and depress the forward/reverse control button on the right
side of the tool. To select reverse, depress the forward/reverse control
button on the left side of the tool. The center position of the control button
locks the tool in the off position. When changing the position of the control
button, be sure the trigger is released.
NOTE: The first time the tool is run after changing the direction of rotation, you may hear a click on start up. This is normal
and does not indicate a problem.
Torque Adjustment Collar (Fig. 4)
The torque adjustment collar (A) is clearly marked with numbers and a drill bit
symbol.The collar should be rotated until the desired setting is located at the top of the
tool (Fig. 4). Locators are provided in the collar to eliminate the guess work when selecting fastening torque. The higher the number on the collar, the higher the torque and the
larger the fastener which can be driven. To lock the clutch for drilling operations, move to
the drill bit position.
NOTE: When using the Drill/Driver for drilling holes, be sure that the Torque Adjusting
Collar is set so the figure of the drill is aligned with the center line on the top of the tool.
Failure to do this will allow the clutch to slip while attempting to drill
FIG. 4
A
Dual Range Gearing (Fig. 5)
The dual range feature of your Driver/Drill allows you to shift gears for greater versatility.
To select the low speed, high torque setting, turn the tool off and permit to stop. Slide the gear
shifter forward (towards the chuck) as shown in Figure 5. To select the high speed, low torque
setting, turn the tool off and permit to stop. Slide the gear shifter back (away from chuck).
NOTE Do not change gears when the tool is running. If you are having trouble changing gears,
make sure that the dual range gear shifter is either completely pushed forward or completely
pushed back.
FIG. 5
Keyless Single Sleeve Chuck
Your tool features a keyless chuck with one rotating sleeve for one-handed operation of the
B
chuck. To insert a drill bit or other accessory, follow these steps.
1. Lock the trigger in the OFF position as previously described.
2. Grasp the black sleeve of the chuck with one hand and use the other hand to secure the
tool. Rotate the sleeve counterclockwise far enough to accept the desired accessory.
3. Insert the accessory about 3/4" (19 mm) into the chuck and tighten securely by rotating the chuck sleeve clockwise with one hand while holding the tool with the other. Your tool is equipped with an automatic spindle lock
mechanism. This allows you to open and close the chuck with one hand.
To release the accessory, repeat step 2 above.
WARNING: Do not attempt to tighten drill bits (or any other accessory) by gripping the front part of the chuck and
turning the tool on. Damage to the chuck and personal injury may result. Always lock off trigger switch when changing
accessories.
Be sure to tighten chuck with one hand on the chuck sleeve and one hand holding the tool for maximum tightness.
Operation as a Drill
Turn the collar to the drill bit symbol. Install and tighten the desired drill bit in the chuck. Select the desired speed/torque
range using the dual range gear shifter to match the speed and torque to the planned operation. Follow these instructions
for best results when drilling.
DRILLING
1. Use sharp drill bits only. For WOOD, use twist drill bits, spade bits, power auger bits, or hole saws. For METAL, use
high speed steel twist drill bits or hole saws. For MASONRY, such as brick, cement, cinder block, etc., use carbidetipped bits.
2. Be sure the material to be drilled is anchored or clamped firmly. If drilling thin material, use a “back-up” block to
prevent damage to the material.
3. Always apply pressure in a straight line with the bit. Use enough pressure to keep the drill bit biting, but do not
push hard enough to stall the motor or deflect the bit.
4. Hold the drill firmly with one hand on the grip and the other hand on the bottom of the battery pack to control its
twisting action.
5. IF DRILL STALLS, it is usually because it is being overloaded. RELEASE TRIGGER IMMEDIATELY, remove drill bit
from work, and determine cause of stalling. DO NOT CLICK TRIGGER OFF AND ON IN AN ATTEMPT TO START A
STALLED DRILL – THIS CAN DAMAGE THE DRILL.
6. To minimize stalling upon breaking through the material, reduce pressure on drill and ease the bit through the last
fractional part of the hole.
7. Keep the motor running when pulling the bit back out of a drilled hole. This will help prevent jamming.
8. With variable speed drills there is no need to center punch the point to be drilled. Use a slow speed to start the hole
and accelerate by squeezing the trigger harder when the hole is deep enough to drill without the bit skipping out.
Operate at full-on after starting the bit.
Drilling in Wood
Holes in wood can be made with the same twist drills used for metal. These bits may overheat unless pulled out frequently to clear chips from the flutes. For larger holes, use low speed wood bits. Work that is likely to splinter should be
backed up with a block of wood.
Drilling in Metals
Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are cast iron and brass which should be drilled dry. The
cutting lubricants that work best are sulphurized cutting oil or lard oil; bacon grease will also serve the purpose.
