You Will Need
- Safety glasses
- Chuck key
- Drill bit
- Nail punch
Insert a drill bit
Insert the chuck key into the small hole on the side of the chuck and turn it counterclockwise until the chuck can accommodate the drill bit. Slide a bit into the chuck.
Secure the bit
Turn the key in a clockwise direction to tighten the chuck. Make sure the bit is secured tightly.
Mark the drilling position
Mark the position where you intend to drill. Use a hammer and nail punch to produce a small indentation at that point. This will prevent the drill from slipping.
Turn on the power to the drill. Position the tip of the drill bit in the indentation, and start drilling at a low speed. Increase the speed of the drill gradually.
Remove the drill
Stop the drill when you have drilled to your desired depth. Remove the drill bit from the hole with the bit rotating at a slow speed.
