First, wear the right personal protective equipment. You should wear safe clothing – no baggy clothes and dangling jewelry. You must also wear protection for your eyes (safety goggles) as well as dust mask and ear buds, if necessary.
Second, choose the correct drill bit. You can suffer from injuries when using the incorrect bit for the material since either one can break. Your eyes, for example, can be injured by the flying debris from the material.
Tip: Choosing the right bit when drilling a hole for a screw is easy. Hold the screw behind the bit. The bit may hide the screw shaft from view but its threads are still visible on both sides.
Third, with the cordless drill turned off, fit the bit into the chuck.
Fourth, turn on the drill with the bit facing up and away from your face. Watch the bit as it spins. Check that it doesn’t wobble from side to side, which means that it’s securely attached.
Fifth, secure the work piece. You can clamp it down, use a vise, or place it on top of scrap plywood depending on its size. The goal here is to keep the work piece as steady as possible and, thus, ensure cleaner results.
You should never hold down a work piece with one hand while you’re drilling with the other hand. You can injure yourself with the power drill since it can slip from your hands.
Sixth, start drilling. You should have an easier time drilling with a cordless drill driver than with a manual drill. But for the best results, you should keep these practical tips in mind.
You must let the drill do its job instead of pressing too hard on it. Light force is all that’s necessary – and if you’re pushing too hard, you chose the wrong bit.
A battery-powered cordless drill driver is a must-have power tool for DIY enthusiasts. You can choose from dozens of brands and models depending on your budget and preferences.
When you have the right cordless drill driver, you can use it for your home improvement projects. Just be sure to respect its power in drilling holes through materials including your own skin.
