A drill is an essential tool whether you are working on wood or metal. Although it may look easy, drilling requires precision and control. There are also techniques that you can employ during certain drilling scenarios. The quality of your work and your safety may even depend on these techniques.
Let’s take micro drilling as an example. When dealing with extremely thin drill bits, the chance of breaking is high. This is especially true when drilling small holes on metal. That’s why micro drilling is something that some try to keep away from because of the task’s difficulty.
But there is actually a time tested technique to do micro drilling that minimizes the change of the drill bit breaking which can cause injury. This technique can give you greater control and sensitivity as you drill extremely tiny holes on metal. If drilling tiny holes scare you, this video might help.
