How to fit the splashback

Hi Do you mean the screws don't match up with the holes ? I find this all the time I drill new holes to make it fit correctly. One thing you should know is stainless is very hard to drill so go to the hardware store and get a bit for stainless and also get it just a little smaller then the screws, if you bring the screws with you they will help you get the correct bit , rate this call thanks Frank

Don't know how to attach a screw on to my corded Skil 3/s drill. Is there a special bit for this purpose?

Hi auntygamma,

Welcome to fixya!

Yes, you need to use a bit with all drills. They come in different sizes and shapes. If you don't have any bits to put into your drill, an all purpose kit would be nice to have. You can find them at your local hardware store or online.

Check out this webpage:

Copy and paste this entire web address into your browser and a page with one of the kits on it will open up for you. You don't have to buy a kit with lots of bits, you can pick up just one or two bits that you would use the most at the hardware store. The most used bits would be the #1 and #2 Phillips bits and a couple of different sizes of flat bladed bits. A few drill bits might come in handy too.

The drill that you have has a keyless chuck. This means you don't need any special tools to put in a bit or change one. If you look at the chuck, you'll see that the ridged part has two sections. If you hold the back section with your left hand, you can turn the front section to either open the chuck or close it to put bits in.

I don't know if this was clear or not, but if you have any problems or more questions about this, please be sure to reply back. I'll be glad to help you.

I have a tomos lx 2005 and where the exhaust goes into the engine block the screw broke off and the exhaust fell off and i can't get the screws out of the engine block. what should i do

you will need to drill out the screws. first apply liquid wrench or similar lubricant. purchase an "easy out" or broken screw extractor. drill a hole of proper size into the broken screw. Use the extractor to remove the remains of the screw. Buy the best drill bit and be sure to use the proper size for the extractor. You may need to apply heat to the remains of the screw to loosen it up.

To whom it may concern, In reference to the item below, I just want to be able to identify what each drill bit / device in the kit is used for. I really want to buy it but I am unsure all descriptions....

Hi. It's hard to determine exactly what all these bits are for by just looking at the photo. there is a list of bit uses on the webpage.
Although I do not know this product personally, in my experience, these "mixed-type" drill kits are usually of cheap quality and, unless you're an extremely occasional user, will not last any sort of long term distance. They blunt very easily and yo will be constantly forking out for replacements.
In my opinion, the best thing to do is to determine exactly what it is that you want to drill and go out and buy a good quality set of bits specifically for drilling that material. It might cost you $50 or so for a kit of a dozen drill bits, but this will pay for itself over the years.
You'll also need to learn how to drill the material correctly to maximise the life of the drill bit (and the drill).
That's my suggestion and opinion. There's no substitute for quality!
Regards, Myles

How far do you put a bit in to know it's placed correctly. I'm trying to surprise my husband by removing some kitchen cabinets, but I'm not sure I put the bit in right and I don't know how to make the...

Find the reverse switch near the trigger. Press one direction for forward, in the middle is a trigger lock and the other direction is reverse. Dont surprize yourself and have the cabinet fall on you.

If you have short bits, put about 1/2 of it into the chuck. If you have long bits (about 2 inches long), put about 1/2 inch of it into the chuck.

Be aware that when the drill runs in reverse, the chuck tends to loosen and when that happens, your bit will fall out.

If Hubby has a bit holder, I'd suggest you use that and place the bit into the bit holder. Makes for a better reach.

Good luck on your project.

How do you change the drill bit for a Ryobi?

My husband explained this, via phone ..... made it simple....... grab the silver ring area beneath the black top area where the drill bit is located. Hold the silver area firmly, while you twist the black top. You will see the release, then remove drill bit. Laymen's terms, but it worked!!
