  How to Drill              
       

 

   
         

Before drilling a hole place the required size drill bit into the chuck and make sure it's good and tight.
Take a firm hold of the drill with both hands and position it to the point you've marked.

Make sure the drill is nice and level so you're not drilling at an angle which may cause the drill to slip.
Gently squeeze the trigger until the hole gets started then press harder to get it to full speed.

N.B. If you're drilling into brick or concrete you need a wall drill set to "hammer" action.
The hammer action vibrates the drill up and down and "hammers" the bit into the wall as it spins
making it much easier.

   
 
     
             

Tip On tiles or hard walls the drill tip can be prone to slipping

To help prevent slipping simply stick some masking tape before marking your spot. This helps prevent slipping.
