Question about Drills

1 Answer

For several yrs my husband has had a DW927 12v 3/8 cordless adj. clutch driver/drill (type 1) never had a problem. this was his dependable drill.then it just seemed to lock.the chuck didnt want to budge and the trigger switch was stiff.i took it apart to clean and inspect. some parts were lose but nothing appeared broken...just very dirty. i cleaned thoroughly and began to re-assemble. i should have taken a few pics! now i have a piece left over and i know its vital. its a channel shaped rectangular metal clip, (the length of a dime) the two sides are rolled at top edge and have cut-out tab near bottom. can you picture this ? i sure have something messed up cause the trigger won't move at all.i'm hoping the little metal clip is the only problem. is there an 'explosive diagram' of this drill?(a schematic type)if i could just see a diagram, i could do it. can you help?

Hi Tootsie.

I am an electrician and I have (5) of these. I ran into the same issue when I rebuilt my first one. #1> the metal clip you may have is about 3/4" long and about 1/4" wide? If so, that is the SPARE bit holder that lives on the bottom of the handle. #2> The metal clip ,you may have, is rectangular and is molded. It measures app. 1/2"X 3/4". If so, this lives within your,"SPEED SWITCH CAP". It is used as a retainer.. As for your trigger, if centered, it reacts as a stop position for the motor. This is a safety precaution to reduce DOUBLE POLARITY and prevents shorting of the battery and trigger. Make sure that you have installed it correctly and that it moves FREELY. I have done this before myself......It's the small things that make a difference...............! Take Care........

Correct clutch setting for driving screws

This depends on the softness / hardness of the timber you are driving the screws into.
Start with midrange clutch setting and when clutch slips, adjust the setting upwards until screws are driven fully home.

those numbers have nothing to do with speed.

They are torque setting for the drill, so you don't overdrive the screw in....the smaller the number, the less torque.

Plz don't take you drill apart
