Hand Drills

Hand drills are a versatile tool set in any DIY tool box. These traditional drills have now been surpassed in many situations by the electric drill; however they are still essential for some tasks.

By using a hand drill such as a hand brace you can drill quickly and efficiently into wooden surfaces. The accuracy that a hand drill provides is unparalleled and as you power the drill yourself and it's therefore easy to keep full control over the power at which you're drilling.

Some of the tasks that might be better carried out with a hand drill as opposed to an electric drill include fitting hinges on boxes and doors. For tasks such as these the accuracy offered by a hand drill is essential as the hinge needs to be aligned perfectly.

One of the excellent hand drills featured here is the 'Archimedes Drill'. This design hasn't changed in thousands of years and can be used for extremely precise work on wood, thin metal and numerous other materials. The drill holes that are produced by this tool are so fine that it is most often favoured by jewellers.
