    Maybe the drop dislocated a power wire inside if no torque.

Drilling wood on a craftsman 10" drill press

There are several possibilities. I am assuming that by "hang up" you mean that the motor still runs, but the arbor, chuck, and bit all stall. I also assume that you are running the bit up and down to clear out the wood shavings from the bit out of the hole, you are using the correct amount of downward force, and that the bit is sharp. I would first check to see that there is proper tension on the drive belt. You can add a belt spray designed to increase friction for better running. I would also gear down the drill press even more to increase torque (I know you say you are running at the correct speed, but try a reduced speed). Another method is to use an auger bit or a forstner bit without pilot holes. If you are using a spade bit, you might try no pilot hole, and drill at a faster speed. I have a junk 10" drill press and have no trouble drilling 1" holes in oak.

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

I got one of these drivers to replace my older driver. It clearly has more than enough torque, which is good in some cases but for some routine things around the house it is too much. Even on the lowest...

Most models have two selections, one for the clutch (which in effect regulates the torque applied) and the other is the gear selection ( usually a setting of 1, 2 & 3, with 1 being for driving screws and 3 for drilling purposes). In addition to those selections, the trigger controls the overall speed of the motor. These are all the control you have over the drill, granted the Dewalt tool is a bit torquey, but it is meant to be a construction tool.

The racheting sound is the result of the torque setting indicated on the dial before the chuck. Set the dial to the drill bit icon, or all the way past the highest number, and that locks out the torque control, and it will not ratchet

How is a driver different from a drill? What

Hello, W/D here.

A very good question......A drill holds a bit and rotates it at a given speed. This speed can be variable, allowing the speed of the drill bit to be better matched to the material being drilled. The output from the drill motor goes directly to the chuck, and the power is directly applied to the drill bit. Some drills can generate a tremendous amount of direct torque, due to the nature of their gearing. Most of the better drills have planetary gears in them.
A driver rotates like a drill, but is designed to apply torque to a driving bit, and cause a fastener to be placed by the driver. The main difference between a drill and a driver is that a driver has an adjustable clutch, allowing the amount of torque being applied to a fitting to be preset. A good example of this would be for driving wood screws. You would dial in the torque setting that you want the driver to quit driving the screw. You don't want to drive the screw to China, you want to drive it flush. A maximum torque setting "locks" the clutch, and the fitting will be driven as far as it can go (This is about as close to being called a drill as a driver will ever get). A clutch setting midway might be just right for driving the same fitting into oak, and a setting at less than that might be just right for pine. The torque clutch effectively sets a kick out torque for the driver. When the torque applied matches the torque set on the driver, the clutch "slips", and no further driving action can occur.
Most modern battery powered drills incorporate a torque clutch between the motor and the chuck so that the tool can be operated as a drill (with the torque setting at "max") or as a driver (with the torque setting at less than max) some electric tools are configured as both, but usually they are different. For the money, a good battery powered drill/driver with a clutch offers more versatility, in my opinion.
Best regards, --W/D--
