Open the chuck of the drill with the help of the chuck key that comes with it. Do this by
pushing the notched end of the key into a hole along the chuck and twisting it counter-
Insert the drill bit into the chuck and tighten it with the chuck key, turning it clockwise
this time. Be sure it fits securely.
Plug the drill in to the electric socket.
Press the trigger to make sure everything is fine and in good condition, before you make
contact with the work.
Start the work at a slow pace and steadily increase the pressure.
Maintain the pressure on the drill and the trigger until the hole is completed.
As soon you finish the work, stop drilling.
