How to use a power drill safely

There are many tips and tricks in the building trade, and even basic advice for DIY novices has its place on our blog. We’re going to be talking about power drills today and how you should be using them to complete the job at hand but stay safe at the same time. Firstly, you’ll need ear and eye protection, especially if you’re going to be drilling regularly. Once you have the correct drill bit for the job, you need to start by drilling a pilot hole, and then switch to the larger bit to finish the job.

It’s so important to drill with steady pressure, and to do this you need to hold the drill firmly and push it into the material that you’re drilling. If it takes more than light force to drill the hole, you’re probably using the wrong bit, so stop immediately and double check your equipment.
