What do the numbers mean on a cordless drill?
The numbers on a cordless drill indicate the torque breaking point or rotary power. The higher the number, the greater the force or torque. … We’ll explain how to adjust the torque or clutch settings on a drill and what the hammer settings on a cordless drill do.
Which way do you drill a hole?
Make sure you’re drilling in the right direction. If the drill bit is facing away from you, clockwise is for cutting/ screwing into material, and counterclockwise is for removing the bit/ unscrewing.
How far in do you put a drill bit?
For bits below 1/2″, my experience is that a minimum of about 1/2″ in the chuck is adequate for most drilling. You can insert more including past the flutes if you find the bit protrudes too much. The depth of insertion affects the maximum drilling depth.
