This handy 2-in-1 drill and driver, is the perfect solution for quick and clean drilling and driving tasks.
For many wood types it is important to first drill so called 'pilot holes' before inserting the screw in order to prevent cracks in the wood.
After pre-drilling the wood, you can safely insert the screw into your 'pilot hole' without risking ugly cracks in your work piece.
Cracked wood caused by not pre-drilling.
When you drive a screw into a piece of wood, you are displacing some of the wood’s fibers to make room for the screw. Sometimes, this is not a problem. Other times, the end of the board cracks to relieve the pressure. By displacing an amount of wood before driving the screw, pilot holes practically eliminate this problem.
When it comes to drilling wood, there are no second chances. If you drill a hole wrong, the wood may split and you won't be able to simply close it again. If you are going to use screws, first drill a diameter slightly smaller than the screw's internal diameter for this.
For example, if you have 3.5-millimeter screws, pre-drill with a 3-millimeter drill bit. The chart on the right can be used as a guide.
