What is a Geared Head Drill?
A geared head drill is fixed to a pedestal that offers the user greater functionality and accuracy. Not only does it allow the user to create perfectly perpendicular holes with the drill, but it is also possible to create a series of holes in a line or other shape, all with the exact level of pre-set penetration. Whatever material you’re working with, a geared drill press can be set to the correct RPM settings.
These drills come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some of which are smaller and ideal for a personal workshop, and others which are designed specifically for a manufacturing setting.
Staying Safe with Geared Head Drills
There are some simple rules to follow when using pedestal drills that help keep you safe. The first is to always use safety glasses, which protect your eyes from any material that comes away from the material you work with. This is important whether you’re working with metal, wood, or plastic. Any small shard of material can seriously damage your eyes if they come at you from some speed.
The use of a vice is also essential, to ensure that the material you’re using doesn’t move while you drill. Without a vice or clamps, not only will the measurements be wrong but it’s possible that the moving material will create shards that can fly and hurt the user.
Finally, always remember to use the guard – it’s included for a reason! The guard protects you from the drill bit, which can be very dangerous at high speeds.
