How to Choose a Drill
Drills are among the most versatile of all power tools, and are essential for virtually all DIY home projects. Whether you want to buy a drill or are simply looking to rent one for a project you’re currently working on, here are some features to look for when choosing a drill:
- A hammer action/drill driver makes for quick work when drilling into masonry or brickwork
- Variable speed control will allow you to vary the speed of the drill depending on the size of hold, type of accessory being used, and the material you’re drilling into
- A two-speed gearbox or variable torque setting is ideal for drilling delicate materials, such as glass and tile
- Long-lasting batteries and a quick charge time will help you complete your task more quickly
