The main reason for using an angled drill is to screw a screw or drill a hole in areas with limited space or access, where using a traditional power drill or a cordless drill/driver to do the job is simply not an option because you simply can not drill or screw in a straight line.
If you are looking for purchasing an angled drill you should also look for one that comes with at least two batteries and a charger.
Parts of a Drill and How To Use It
As we have established above, angled drills come in mains and battery powered form, the latter giving you more scope for accessing more limited work areas.
Key locking chuck
A special chuck key (this looks like a cog on the end of a handle) kits in to normally one of three holes at the end of the chuck and is used to turn a gear, also at the end of the chuck, that in turn closes the jaws of the chuck and clamps down on the item inserted into it.
Instead of having a key to tighten the jaws, you use your hand to turn the exterior of the chuck that in turn tightens or loosens the jaws.
most models of Angle drill allow you to get enough pressure by hand to hold any size drill or screwdriver bit and when working in a confined space, this is much easier than trying to tighten and untighten with a key.
Drills can look like a toy gun to play with, and the fact that the operating switch is located in the same place as a trigger helps support the look. The trigger switch is the on-and-off mechanism on a drill. Some models will have only one speed and one simple switch.
Drill Shaft and Drill Bits
The drill shaft is the pointed part of the drill that holds the motor and the chuck. It is also where the rotation clutch is located. Like most electrical motors, the drill operates with a clutch to control power. Drill bits are the fun part – these multiple pieces can be changed according to the project at hand. Different bits are needed for different materials and use.
