Black and Decker Firestorm Drills include a series of drills which offer different features to cater for your needs. The Firestorm series consists of drills with 14.4 voltage to 18 voltage. Black and decker gives you the option to buy the drill and the driver kit together or just the drill alone.
The purchase of a drill
Before you start looking for a drill or other tools, take the time to ask for what purpose it was intended. Several factors determine the kind of drill to obtain. Here are six basic considerations for choosing a the firestorm drill adapted to your needs.
The weight and feel in the hands of a tool is the first important choice. This may sound strange, but a tool too heavy or difficult to maneuver may be difficult to use and even dangerous. You buy a drill, like buying a pair of shoes, one must find one that suits her hand. Do not hesitate to touch the drill, to weigh and consider every angle with attention to weight, size and balance in hand. Black and Decker Firestorm drill series include models such as FS1800D weighing 4 pounds,FSX18HD which weighs about 5 pounds and also with heavier more powerful models such as FS18000SB-2 which weight 14 pounds.
An electric drill or cordless
The choice of an electric drill or cordless depends largely on the use we made of them.Both models have their advantages. We tend to start with a cordless drill because it is generally agreed by a majority of small domestic work and you will find the firestorm series including cordless drills.
A cordless drill is moving smoothly, but generally has less power than a power drill. It feeds on rechargeable batteries and does not need a cord. This makes it a more useful tool and more secure if we move often. The cordless drills generally have engines from 3.6 to 18 volts. Is chosen more often a model of 12 volts for domestic use. In less than 12 volts, the tool does not have enough power to do anything like enforcing screws.The various Firestorm gives you the ability to power through wood, plastic, steel, masonry, concrete, brick. Its about knowing which materials you mostly be working with and then choosing accordingly.
The torque is defined as the power of rotation of the drill. The torque decreases as speed. A slow drill has a torque greater. If the drill is to be used with a variety of different materials, one should choose a tool that has multiple settings for torque or clutches. This will select the torque corresponding to the task at hand. To screw in a hard material, for example, one can choose a slower speed, which prevents damage to the screw head. All the Black And Decker Firestorm Drill models include clutch and micro adjustments in torque control.
The type and size of the chuck
The mandrel is this metal piece at the end of the drill that holds the wick in place. There are several models of Chuck, but you have to stop especially their size and characteristics, if it is a chuck key or keyless chuck. A chuck key requires a chuck key to clear and replace the wicks. This type of core has the advantage of better security and keep the hair more resilient to adverse conditions. For cons, the change takes a little bit more time and it absolutely can not be done without the key.
A keyless chuck makes changing bits by hand and without tools, a valuable benefit, especially if different tasks require different strands. The cores come in size 1 / 4 ', 3 / 8' and 1 / 2 '. A chuck 1 / 4 'allows to drill small holes quickly, but lacks the power required in harder materials. A chuck 1 / 2 'turns more slowly, but with more power and is therefore suitable for work requiring more torque. The chuck 3 / 8 'combines the advantages of the other two because it combines the speed and power that are suitable for normal work. Black And Decker Firestorm Drill include 1/2' Chuck.
The need for speed
To choose the speed of the drill, we will use a popular feature and flexible that is the variable speed. This will adjust the speed of rotation of the drill bit within certain limits. The speed is adjusted by means of a trigger on the handle. Plus it is pushed, the more the speed increases. We can start and finish a project with appropriate speed, which can not drill a constant speed. This feature reduces the chances of drilling a hole too big or slippage that may damage the surface of the work. It also allows flexibility and control needed to use the drill as a screwdriver mail. The FS18000SB-2 gives you the ability to vary speed for more controlled drilling.
All in all the Black and Decker Firestorm Drill series has been able to achieve a reputable rating and with the price for which it is up for you can count on the fact that you will not be disappointed.
