Toolbox Tesday - Hand Drill

Hand Drill


Hand drills or eggbeater drills were initially made for drilling in metal for which a higher rotation speed is needed. However they could also be used for drilling into soft wood. Hand drills worked by continuous motion but offered an additional benefit of turning faster than a brace. They were also best used when the individual was position above they work piece. Majority of hand drills were generally fifteen inches or less in length with the possibility of changing the bit rotation speed.
