bit is blunt, even diamond drills blunt
the objuect being drilled is a composite, and some part of the composite is flammable

The drill appears to be in working order except when in use, large amounts of smoke ooze out the air vents. I am afraid to use it for this reason. Is this fixable?

Sounds like it has over-heated to the point that the insulation is burning off the windings (coil). It is almost certainly cheaper to replace than repair (if it is new you could try to hit Sears up for warranty). On your new one, when it gets hot to the touch (before it is hot enough to burn your hand), stop using it until it cools down.

Using drill battery started getting extremly hot/ removed and it continued to get hot and started smoking. Put second battery in drill and same thing happened again. Whats Up?

the drill apparently has created a short in the battery contacts. Look at the contacts and then the switch contacts, there might be a wire going to ground against the motor or the switch has shorted creating this problem.

Makita 2071 Smoking, probably overheated but still working

When an AC motor is stalled, very high currents pass through the motor windings and melt the insulation on the windings; the smoke was the result of the motor winding insulation being melted. This causes a reduction in motor torque and premature failure.

You should suggest that your neighbor buy you a new drill and he keep the one that he ruined.

Drill started to smoke while useing

Usualy when a drill is put under extreme load the windings get hot on the armature. Sometimes the coating on the windings melts off and short together. the drill is on its last leg when this happens
