How To Use A Cordless Drill
Have you ever wanted to know how to use a cordless drill to get some DIY projects done at home? In this quick and simple VideoJug tutorial, you can learn to properly use a cordless drill with ease.
This is a cordless drill. It's called that because it's battery-powered. The batteries go into a charger.
You always want to make sure the charger is on, plugged in, and on the wall, light on before you put the batteries in. If you don't, you can actually damage the batteries long-term. You should always actually make sure they're charging properly.
Then you should always take the battery out before you detach it from the wall. Never leave in the charger when the charger's not plugged in. It's now charging.
When the light stays green, it's done. You've got a couple of options. This one got a chuck, a quick release chuck.
You can put drill bits in there or you can put screwdriver bits in there as well. Like that. It's normally easier to use them with an extension because you can get in there further without having the drill body in the way.
This particular drill has got a quick chuck change. Do that and now you haven't got the chuck body in the way and you can get right into little corners, alright, and screw two bits together, these two bits here. You then just drill straight through.
If you do, what happens is that you screw into this one and the point comes out the other side, lifts the top piece up, and then it starts cutting into the lower piece, then you get a gap. So what you always do, drill a hole through the top piece. Always make sure you're not holding it on the blades when you put a cutter in.
This one, I've got a counter-sinking part on there as well to allow for the head of the screw. So you screw through the top piece far enough for the counter-sink, then you go through it then go even further so that the filler will cover over. You have two speeds: 2 and 1.
You put it on 1 for screwing, you put it on the screw part. The drill part goes faster than the screw part. Number 1 is the speed.
2 is for drilling, 1 is for screwing. This side drills, there's no torque control. The thing we have on here is how it will hurt your fingers.
Whereas if you have it on screwdriver part, you can set the torque down here and it will stop. Some of them make a clicking sort of tick sound when you get there. This one makes the digital sound.
Anyway, we're now screwing, so it's on number 1, it's on the screw. Line it up. That's because it's on the torque setting quite low.
That's useful sometimes when you want to make sure you don't pull straight through the top piece of wood you're going through. Sometimes, even if you're putting a screw through a hinge into a door, if you leave it on, on the drill, the drill setting with no torque and drill straight into the hinge, put the screw into the hinge, it will keep spinning around and it will snap the head of the screw off. So it's worth having the torque setting.
The screw should always be at least twice the thickness of the top piece, which means you should really screw from a thin piece into a thick piece or at least both the same size. See that, jumping sound just then you want to try and avoid that. The way to avoid that is to stay with the screwdriver in exactly in line with your screw like that.
This is backwards and forwards. Take the thing out. There you go.
That's how you use a cordless drill. .
