The Best Cordless Drill

A drill is a very versatile tool because with it, you can do a lot of maintenance work, repairs and manufacturing, both at home and during craftsmanship work.

This type of tool is fitted with a cutting and drilling element called a drill bit, in order to be able to make holes of different diameters in wood, plastic, metal and other materials.

Basic drill functions have been perfected thanks to great advances in technology. Now, it is a more functional tool due to design improvements and the various accessories incorporated. Currently, a drill is not only used to make holes, but it is also very useful for driving screws, sharpening, grinding or mixing.

Cordless drills

The cordless drill is the result of the electric drill in constant evolution. With them, the socket is replaced by a battery. One of the main advantages of cordless drills is that they offer greater autonomy and make it easier for people to use them anywhere. This type of drill can come without percussion, which implies they are highly recommended screwdrivers.

Rotary hammer

The rotary hammer is a function that combines a hammer mechanism with a separate rotation mechanism on the drill bit. Because of its great power, it is widely used to drill very hard materials such as rock or concrete. Rotary hammers are the favourites among those working in construction and masonry. They are for professional use and not recommended for domestic use or simple jobs because of their great weight and size.

Drill press

It is a static tool that is affixed to a base or column with vertical movement. The main advantage of a drill press is its great precision when making holes. So is the adjustment of the depth as it allows easy drilling on fragile materials such as glass or porcelain, that at the same time need to be held firmly in order not to break.

Angle drills

Angle drills are electric tools meant to drill safely in places with difficult access, since they are thin and powerful. They can also be used as screwdrivers. They are perfect for frontal drilling and can be powered by cable or lithium battery.

Magnetic drills

Magnetic drills are portable tools suitable for drilling structural steel and similar metals. They are widely used in mining environments, shipbuilding or welding workshops.

Drill bits for every need

Drill bits are found in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials according to the needs of the job. In order to choose the right one, you must consider the speed you will need for drilling, material hardness and the type of tool to be used.

Although most drill bits have straight shanks, drill bits with brace shanks are often used for high-strength drilling. Many include a hexagonal shape with patented quick-release system. The drill bit diameter / length relationship is generally 1: 1 and 1:10, although there are also much higher ratios, keeping in mind that technical challenges for a good job will increase with ratio.

There are many the materials used for manufacturing drill bits and they depend on purpose. For example, hard materials such as carbides are much more fragile than steel, so they tend to break more easily.

There are affordable steel drill bits whose resistance is very low. These need to be sharpened frequently because they are low in carbon and are meant for woodworking. You will also find those with high carbon content, which provide greater hardness and allow metal drilling. Drill bits with carbon may overheat but will continue to perform properly.

Drill bits with steel and cobalt alloys are available on the market and they will keep their hardness at high temperatures; widely used in stainless steel drilling.

The polycrystalline diamond-coated drill bits are extremely resistant to wear. The drill bits made with this material (diamond powder on the tip) are used in the car industry to drill abrasive alloys of aluminium or carbon-fibre reinforced plastic.

How to know which drill to buy?

In order to choose a drill you must think about certain aspects that will help you make the best decision. It is not enough to compare what is on the market and how cheap you might find them to be. It is necessary to count on a definitive guide to buying in order to make the best acquisition, one that is really functional and satisfies the user’s needs.

The first thing to bear in mind is where and when it will be used. It is pointless to invest a large amount of money in a drill that will not be used properly.

The chosen drill must be practical, one that can be operated in an effective manner and that will fulfil several functions: carpentry work, metal or steel perforation.

Although the price is important, you can still purchase very economical models with all the needed features and functions. However, you should not hesitate and always buy the best and well-known brands such as Bosch, Black and Decker, Milwaukie, Makita or Dewalt.

Ergonomics is also a very important feature. If the user feels uncomfortable while using the drill, it will surely bring discomfort and more fatigue than necessary. It is important that the final user is the one who evaluates whether or not the use of the equipment will be feasible.

It is essential to know the opinions or advice given by people about certain models and drill brands as they will help us greatly when choosing the one that best suits specific needs. It is beneficial to have access to first-hand evidence than to be disappointed after buying the wrong one.

Where to buy the perfect drill

The range of drills is very wide. The best place to buy a drill is from any of the different online stores like Amazon, eBay, Argos or John Lewis, where you can get good deals throughout the year in new and used, cheap drills.

When thinking about buying a drill, we must make sure that operation and materials to work with are a fit. If you pick the right tool, you can make the most of all its advantages while guaranteeing a qualitative final result.
