A cordless drill can save treacherous torture on your extremities. It will prevent the countless torque and twisting of individual screws and nails. Though seemingly simple, a few tips before rocking those nails’ world will help your efficiency and end production.

Here are ten tips to aid your use of a cordless drill.

1. Keep a spare battery handled and charged. Nothing will bring your productive atmosphere to a halt quite like the limits of lithium batteries. Just like when you were a kid and your RC car ran out of gas after it made it up the driveway, you don’t want a project put on hold so you can charge a battery and finish the job. Keeping a spare or two on hand will ensure hours of endless drilling to your heart’s content. Also remember to place your drill back on the charger when you are finished.

2. Read the instruction manual. You may think that you know everything there is to know about the simple mechanics of drilling, but if you did, you probably wouldn’t be scanning this article. There are important tips, warrantee information, and specifics that you should be aware of in order to maximize the lifespan of your drill.

3. Decide what your purpose is before beginning the job, this will dictate the attachments that you will want to purchase and implement for your work.

4. Do not operate your drill in a wet or gas filled environment.

5. Choose the right size and type of bit for the task. This becomes important, this because you can strip your screws if you don't use the right size bit. There are specifically designed bits for wood, metal, brick, and other materials.

6. Familiarize yourself with positions of the buttons. The last thing you want is to ruin a hole by throwing a nail into drive further, instead of going into reverse.

7. Never carry the drill by the trigger, even if its unplugged, develop good working habits.

8. If bit security is an issue, or it is sliding, You can purchase bit collars that slide over the bit, and are secured at the correct depth to hold the bit in place.

9. When you are driving in a screw, put some pressure on the drill, hold it steady and firm. If you see your screw is not going in at a straight, pull back, don’t force anything. Your drill is very powerful and should be used carefully. Put the drill into reverse and guide the screw back out, but not all the way. Then put the back forward and try again. Sometimes a pilot hole needs to be drilled first to give your screw somewhere to be forced into.

10. Be safe, don’t wear loose clothes around the drill, wear goggles, and don’t make quick movements without keeping your body in check.
