Running at low speeds under constant chuck . usage may cause your drill to become overheated . If this occurs , cool your drill by running it without a load and at full speed . The following guidelines may be used in determining correct speed for various applications : • Low speed is ideal when minimum speed and power is required . For example , starting holes without center punching , driving screws , mixing paint , and drilling in ceramics . • Medium speed is suitable for drilling hard metals , plastics , and laminates . • High speed produces best results when maximum Fig . - 7 power is required . For example , drilling in wood ; soft metals such as aluminum , brass , and copper , and • Tighten the chuck jaws on dritl bit . when using driving accessories . • To tighten : grasp and hold the collar of the chuck with one hand , while rotating the chuck body with , _ WARNING : Your drill should never be connected your other hand . to power supply wh'en you are assembling parts , Note : Rotate the chuck body in the direction of the making adjustments , installing or removing drill arrow marked GRIP to tighten chuck jaws . bits , cleaning , or when not in use .

See Figures 8 and 9 . _ L WARNING : Be prepared for binding or bit breakthrough . When these situations occur , drill has a tendency to grab and kick opposite to the LEVEL direction of rotation and could cause loss of control when breaking through materials . If not prepared , this loss of control can result in possible serious injury . When drilling hard , smooth surfaces use a center punch to mark the desired hole location . This will prevent the drill bit from slipping off center as the hole is started . However , the variable speed feature allows starting ENDVIEW holes without center punching if desired . To accomplish this , operate your drill at a low speed until the hole is started . When drilling metals use a light oil on the drill bit to keep it from overheating . The oil will prolong the life of the bit and increase the drilling action . If the bit jams in the work piece or if your drill stalls , stop the tool immediately . Remove the bit from the work piece and determine the reason for jamming . LEVEL DRILLING See Figures 8 and 9 . A convenient feature provided on your drill is a level . It is recessed in the motor housing on your drill . It can be used to keep drill bits level during both horizontal and vertical drillinq operations . Fig . 8 9
