A significant advantage of Air Drills comparing to traditional Electric Drills is that they are straightforward construction, meaning fewer internal components and when linked with a quality air compressor provide consistent and powerful results.

Frequently asked questions

How do I remove the chuck from my Air Drill?

This exercise is quite simple. Hold the drill down firmly, insert the chuck key and hit sharply with the mallet (turning it counter clockwise) to loosen the drill chuck from the threaded spindle. You might repeat this procedure a couple of times to reduce the chucks to unscrew the old drill chuck finally.
