This bite-sized beginner class aims to demystify the drill. The drill is probably the most commonly owned and used power tool today, but while access to them has never been easier, many people fall into really common pitfalls when trying to use them effectively! We hope to build confidence and understanding of the versatility of the drill, and get hands on experience and feedback with the guidance of with woodworking tutor Elaine McFerran. In this class: We aim to differentiate between drills, drivers, hammer drills and SDS drills We learn about the anatomy of our drills and understanding all their various functions, settings and limitations We look at drill bits and screwdriver heads and learn how to select the right one that we need for a given purpose We learn the difference between screws and bolts, nuts and washers and talk about lots of different fixings We look at forstner bits, using them to create a small tealight holder to take home.
