Working advice

Before drilling, make sure that the quick-action clamp (3), the parallel guide (19) and/or the machine vice (accessory) are tightly fastened.

The drill can become jammed in the workpiece when it is being removed from the workpiece, which may cause kickback. Therefore, make sure to slow down the feed motion towards the end of the drilling procedure.

If the application tool becomes blocked, switch the power tool off. Allow the application tool and the workpiece to cool down. Remove the drilling chips. Investigate and take corrective action to eliminate the cause of the application tool jamming.

Metal workpieces should be centre-punched before drilling into them.

Pre-drill if a drilling diameter is over 10 mm.

Use cutting oil (e.g. Bosch universal cutting oil) to cool the drilling point and facilitate your work.

  • Always stand in front of the power tool. This will ensure you always have a good view of the drilling point.
  • Keep hands and fingers away from the rotating application tool.
  • Do not reach one arm across the other when in front of the drive unit.

  • Place the workpiece on the base plate (1).
  • Set the height of the drive unit.
  • Align the workpiece by referring to the laser cross.
  • Clamp the workpiece.
  • Set an appropriate speed.
  • Switch on the power tool.
  • To drill, turn the hand wheel (11) with uniform feed until the required drilling depth is reached.
  • Once the required drilling depth has been reached, retract the hand wheel (11) until the drive unit has returned to its initial position.
  • Switch the power tool off.

The current drilling depth can be viewed on the display (14).

  • After setting the speed, press the button (33) to switch the indicator area of the display to "Depth".
  • Set the height of the drive unit.
  • Rest the tip of the drill bit lightly on the workpiece.
  • Press the button (34) to determine the zero point.
    "Reset" appears on the display (14).
  • Drill with uniform feed until the required drilling depth is shown on the display.

The depth stop (9) can be used to determine the drilling depth t.

  • Loosen the clamping lever (8) by turning it anticlockwise.
  • Carry out a test drilling procedure. If the required drilling depth t is shown on the display (14), retighten the clamping lever (8).
    The drilling depth is then limited to the value t for subsequent drilling procedures.
