You call on these versatile workhorses for almost every job--but do you know if you're getting the most from your drill or drill press? The skimpy and often confusing manuals that come along with the tools won't really tell you how to buy and use these essentials, what accessories are available, and how to keep them in top condition. Look to an expert for in-depth knowledge, and feel secure about your equipment choices, and performing basic, intermediate, and advanced operations in wood, metal, masonry, plastic, and glass. Should you get a hammer drill or rotary hammer drill? Bench-top, floor model, or radial drill press? Do you know why you should never split the case on a cordless drill or when you need professional repairs? All the answers are in here. There are special sidebars, a complete anatomy of cordless models and bench-tops; information on features like batteries and charging systems; discussions of ergonomics, clutches, and chuck capacity; and details on loads of fun accessories. It has all the facts, tips, and shortcuts you need! The author lives in Emmaus, PA. 128 pages (all in color), 8 x 10.
