An Introduction To Power Drills

By Stephen Finch

You will find many varieties of power drills at your local hardware store. To the unsuspecting eye, they may all look alike. But not all drills are created equal.

There are a wide variety of drills on the market today that will handle everything from small household projects to large industrial work. So before your splurge, take a few minutes to learn about the variety of drills on the market today so that you can make a wise investment and choose the right one for you.

Cordless Drills

Used for most household repairs and light carpentry work, a cordless drill is the most basic drill. These drills are powered by rechargeable batteries. Cordless drills often double as electric screwdrivers and therefore are a better choice for the careful shopper.

Popular among professionals and weekend enthusiasts alike because once fully charged, a cordless drill is very portable. A carry box that holds the main drill and interchangeable bits is included with most drills.

Remember though that the battery life will drain quicker the more you use it. Before you make the investment, decide what type of drill makes the most sense for you. Think about the speed settings, voltage, and battery type and lifespan.

Drills With Angles

Those tight areas where a typical drill, or person may not be able to reach is the main reason why angle drills were made. The pivoting action of an angle drill means it can access locations that a straight drill cannot access. Although an angle drill may not be as mighty as other power drill, their unique agility for getting into tight spots is worth the investment.

Hammer-like Drills

Used for drilling into stone, brick or concrete, the electric drill is sturdier than the standard drill. The hammering occurs when the drill’s chuck pulsates rather than rotates when in use to cut through tough masonry materials. Professional builders and craftspeople prefer this tool as compared to the weekend builder.

Mounted Drills

A drill press is a type of stationary drill that is mounted to a work table. Handy for many workshop tasks like sanding and polishing by using the appropriate drill heads (although not always recommended, check with your dealer) to the obvious drilling holes. A handy tool to have, a drill press is hands-free, pardon the pun. Requiring less muscle to control the direction and pressure of the drill, you can clamp your work in place and direct the drill bit to the desired spot. This allows for more precise and accurate drilling.

A hardware workshop is not the only place for this tool. The drill press is a popular tool with crafts people and jewelry artists alike.

Drills are a dime a dozen in today’s hardware market. So before you plunk down the cash, do a little thinking and a little research to find out which product is best for you.
