Soap might work. Some use candle wax, bees wax, WD 40. I've prayed silicone on the drill bit. Using moderate pressure and low speed definitely helps, and it is essential to clear out the hole of chips frequently. So drilling in increments works. You drill a little, lift the bit up out of the hole to clear the chips. Also the type of bit used is a factor in drilling efficiency: wood boring bits are a good choice. Forstner bits are excellent, and spade bits are just OK. Hope this helps....

You should use a honing type of oil when drilling with large bits. There is a tremendous amount of friction and the oil keeps the bits cooler when cutting.

I am trying to drill through old encyclopedias, but the drill bits keep snapping in the pages. What type of drill bit can I put on an hand-held drill that will get through the books without breaking?


rx-dk-diy054036_wood-drill-bits_s4x3_lg.jpgI've used 'regular' high speed drill bits for paper, and wood boring bits. I think the wood bits work better, but whatever bit is used the drill flutes have to be cleared out of material. This is done by drilling a little bit at a time and then lifting the drill out of the hole to clear the hole and the drill of shavings. This is essential to do to minimize heat buildup and binding of the drill bit. The drill bit should not break if you take it nice and easy, and drill in small increments .

How do i use a spade bit?


I'm assuming you mean a spade drill bit?

For best results, try clamping a block of hardwood to the back side of the stock before drilling. When the bit approaches the end of the cut, it will be far less likely to blow through with another piece of wood to drill. However, if the stock placed on the back side is softer than the workpiece, or if it is not securely clamped to the workpiece, tear out can still occur.

To use a spade drill bit, mark the center point of the hole to be drilled on the wood, and install the shank of the bit into the drill. Align the point of the pilot tip of the spade drill bit with the mark on the wood, and adjust the angle of the handheld drill so that the shank of the bit is square to the surface of the wood. (Of course, if you're using a drill press, the bit's angle should already be square to the surface of the wood, unless your drill table is not square to the motor).

Depress the trigger of your drill slightly to engage the motor and turn the bit slowly. Hold the drill as still as possible so that the pilot point stays aligned with the mark on the wood. Because pilot tips can often "walk" away from the intended center point of the hole, some woodworkers will pre-drill the pilot hole using a small-diameter twist drill bit that is less likely to walk, and then proceed with the spade drill bit's pilot tip into the pre-drilled pilot hole.

Once the pilot tip is in place and engaged with the wood, increase the speed and proceed to drill the large diameter hole with the spade drill bit. Continue drilling until you reach the opposite side of the wood and the bit pokes out through the completed hole. Slow the speed of the motor, and pull the drill bit out of the completed hole.

What speed would i need to set my cordless drill at to put hole in wall


Your drill will drill a hole at any speed, the drill bit needs to be sharp to drill the mateirial.The type of wall material is important.Drywall is soft but a masonry bit should be used.A masonry bit has a flat bar accross the point and slower speeds are best.Wood walls / studs you need wood bits that are sharper and medium to high speeds are used.Concrete or Block walls again require Masonry bits.If very hard concrete as in foundation walls or filled block the use of a Hammer drill will work much faster.Good Luck

When running a 3" screw


You need to drill a pilot hole in order to allow the screw to sink into hard woods. This is done by taking a drill bit slightly smaller the width size of the screw and drilling into the wood in the location of the place you would like the screw to go. Then sink your screw into this hole. You should be able to sink your screw with no problems.

I am using a powerbase xtreme cordless drill diver kit and cannot fit the wood drill bits onto the drill. I have tryed fiddling with the settings and such but cannot find a way. Please help


Refer to the picture shown in the link below--- http://mydeco.com/p/powerbase-xtreme-cordless-hammer-drill-kit-18v/GB000024EPS6TLCLTKLEGSM4VU6S7ICXK7PGDYPU/
The very left-hand end of the drill is the drill chuck. There are three "jaws" protruding from the left-most end. To open the jaws grasp the large black collar with one hand and the the smaller silver collar just behind it with the other hand. Twist these two collars in opposite directions. You have to twist pretty hard. If they won't move, then try the other direction. Once they start to move they will move easily and you will see that the the three jaws begin to separate. Keep going until the jaws have separated enough to insert the wood drill bit, insert the bit, then tighten - good and tight! Good luck.

I have a dewalt 18v cordless hammer drill but for some reason while drilling the drill does not spin as fast as it used to batteries are fine just the drill any ideas


depends on where you drilling- wood - no hammer option needed- fast, metal- no hammer option needed- also fast, but it is concrete- sorry- hammer option needed so it will always drill slower, and drain your batteries way faster (have a spare one ready).Speaking about drilling - don't drill for too long with no breaks to cool them down, always keep an eye on gun's and battery's temperature- even if it is new Lithium NANO, do not let them overheat.
BTW- what model is yours? Is It SDS hammer drill sort of DC212KL?

My new bits 22mm and below keep jamming and burning the wood


All new bits come with a 'dressing' to stop corrosion. To remove it, spray with releasing oil ( wd40 or sim) and leave for about an hour. Wipe clean with a lint free cloth. This will also protect your bits from becoming rusted in the future. If you are drilling high grain woods like oak or beech, which are very hard, don't push the drill bit in, let the drill do it's work and just drill slowly, the harder you push, the more friction will created. Regards, dave.
