Maintaining a Drill

Drills need periodic maintenance to ensure that they remain in good working order. Taking drills apart is not recommended, but you should pay some attention to the casing and drill chuck. Unclog vents with a paintbrush to stop dust from damaging the motor or causing overheating. Check the owner's manual for instructions on how best to lubricate the chuck. Check the cord regularly for signs of wear.
