Maintenance Checklist for Power Drill Set

Keeping your tools in good condition is imperative for professionals as well as DIY enthusiasts. And it holds true for the drill machine you own just as well, which bores through the toughest of materials and makes your jobs rather easy with its compactness and easy to use functionality.

Electric drill Maintenance checks

Be it a basic hand drill or one of our high performance power drills, your tools require maintenance to keep them in top-notch condition and at the height of their performance. Regular upkeep also enhances the life of a machine.

Here we have compiled a few pointers that you can check for maintenance purposes:

Cleaning & upkeep

First and foremost, whatever tools you use, must be cleaned regularly. Machines come with several filters and joints, which are prone to attracting dust or grime with continued usage. Changing filters, keeping the holes clean and dust free is all part of the upkeep that you must regularly do in order to enhance the working of your machine.

Lubricating frequently

It is important to keep your machine well oiled, for the best results. Oiling the tools eliminates friction around moving joints and helps the machine run smoothly. Proper lubrication not only increases productivity, but also prolongs the life of your machine. It is also very important to invest in a good quality lubricant to keep your machine working for a long time.

Checking wear & tear

Gear movement, high friction, throttle, and temperature are all the factors a drill endures every second of its working life. While these factors are all part of its functionality, they may also contribute to the wear and tear of the machine. Keep a lookout for when this happens and preferably before every job for your own safety.

Checking alignment

Machines are a combination of various parts including gears, valves, shafts, and motors. If any one of them is misaligned for any reason the quality of your work may be compromised. Make it a regular practice to check for alignment before every job and re-tune the machine when required.
