A magnetic drill or mag drill, is a drill with a magnetic base that secures the drill to a metal workpiece.
Magnet drills come in a range of sizes, magnet types and with a range of features and applications they can perform.
Some models feature reversible direction control, meaning they can be used for tapping, a process that creates a threaded hole ready for a bolt and requires tooling to be reversed out once the thread has been created.
Some models feature electromagnets that require power in order to magnetise, whilst others feature fixed permanent magnets that can operate independently of a power source.
With considerations like this in mind, it is essential to chose the right drill for the job or it may not be possible to complete the intended task.
