Drill is available in arsenal from each wizard, even if he just came from time to time to fix the shelves or cabinets at home. However, it is often necessary to deal with what you need to do some special type of work, and there is no equipment for this.
It makes no sense to buy it, because many of the useful devices can work on the basis of a drill.
Drill devices are used to simplify work with this tool, as well as to expand its functionality. Armed with these designs, you can avoid buying a variety of other expensive tools: lathe, metal cutting accessories and similar.
Any additional design for a drill can be purchased in the store. The price of such a nozzle will be at times lower than the full equipment, giving a similar effect. This is due to the fact that you already have the mechanism: the drill itself will be responsible for the rotational movement. But it is the motor – the most expensive part of the overwhelming majority of technical devices.
However, you can not only buy a nozzle, but also make it with your own hands, especially when it does not find it in stores what completely suits. Nobody wants to spend money on the fact that it does not quite correspond to the expectation. Sometimes it’s easier to make any of the designs yourself. It is cheaper, and more practical: homemade fixtures are no worse, while fully meet all the requirements.
It should be borne in mind that factory, and homemade nozzles quickly fail with too intensive exploitation. They are ideal for home use when only periodically resorted to their help, but they will not be able to replace industrial machines.
So in cases where you need to use any of the nozzles often and for a long time, it is better to purchase a full-fledged unit, and the nozzles use in rare cases for the “finishing”.
Varieties and features of application
There is a huge number of diverse nozzles, accessories and devices for a drill. This applies not only to the details of the mechanism (example – the brief holder). The overwhelming majority of such devices are attached instead of rolling, thanks to which the drill turns into an absolutely different tool.
Many of the existing structures cannot be applied with low-power drills. It is associated with big?m Weight of the nozzles that will have to not only spinning, but also maintain a high number of revolutions for some (sometimes quite a long time) time. It is recommended to use a drill with no lower than 600 W. This is the minimum power at which the tool will function normally with any nozzle.
Most of these nozzles or accessories are designed for typical drills, and it is not always possible to choose the desired if you use another type (for example, a mixer drill that is much more ordinary).
In this case, it is better not to risk and go to the store together with the existing unit. Then the nozzle can be performed before buying. Another way – the manufacture of the desired device yourself.
For vertical drilling
In order to make a vertical hole, mostly use two types of fixtures: racks and guide consoles.
Rack for a drill is a design consisting of a carrier bed on which there is a guide groove. The sleeve is fixed on the bed. On the bushing fixed directly clamp for a drill. Move the sleeve up and down is carried out using a special handle. A feature is the selection of materials and the way they are fixed. Nodes should be as hard as possible, the guide of the bed must also have increased resistance.
Metal racks, electromagnetic racks are widely represented on the market. In everyday life you can often see homemade wooden racks, which differ in functionality differ from professional metal. Guide Prefixes – Simplified Rack Option. Professionals often include guide consoles to manual instruments. It has a greater mobility, unlike the rack, so the console is more often acquired for domestic use.
For drilling at a certain angle
This type includes types of nozzles designed to simplify the procedure for drilling “complex” holes. These can relate to both accessories for drilling at right angles, and tools that allow you to adjust the angle of inclination of the future hole.
Partly here include guide consoles. Meaning those of them in which there is an inclination adjustment function. Securing the guide box (or two, as in the case of most modern consoles) at a certain angle, you can easily drill any hole. Also popular with drilling devices at an angle of 45 degrees. For these needs it is necessary to use a special machine. Options for machines in abundance are presented in the modern market.
Many use self-made racks for a drill, equipping the clip with the ability to rotate. So you can have at hand and a device for vertical drilling, and a device for drilling at right angle, and a design with an adjustable angle.
However, the manufacture of such a technological device requires at least a minimum understanding of engineering – for a beginner to make it independently will be extremely problematic.
For ticking valve
The use of such a device largely facilitates the wiring of the engine valves. If there is a nozzle to wipe the valves on the drill, then you will not have to use a manual device or pneumatic machine. A different drill device is called suction cup.
The suction cup is attached to one end on the drill, and the other – on the valve terminal. It is important that the drill at the same time is configured to a small number of revolutions. It is in this case that it will achieve the best results.
Another argument in favor of selecting the method of wrapping valves of the drill – you will need a small amount of triwort paste. Do not neglect its use at all, but its quantity should be minimal. It is also not necessary to apply any physical effort. It is believed that the smaller the push – the lower the probability of ticking incorrectly.
However, when using such a device, an important role is played by the experience of a lover, because in case of erroneously completed wipes, the engine will not last long.
For sharpening rolling
Such devices are designed for sharpening rolled and belong, perhaps, to the most popular fixtures. They are needed when there is no disk saw, lathe or other bulky tools at hand. Externally, they look like a round disk with a variety of holes of different diameters.
Inside the disk is a grinding stone that rotates when the drill is turned on. Everything that needs to be done is to insert a spiral drill into a suitable hole in the diameter. Stone sharpens drill at an angle of 118 degrees. It is important to pay attention to the fact that the wrong choice of diameter is able to lead to poor drainage of the drill or even it is damaged. On the other hand, if you need to get a sharpening at a different angle, it is logical to use a larger diameter hole, adjusting the tilt angle manually.
In the overwhelming majority of cases, the kit includes a spare grinding stone. Also, it is also possible to buy stones additionally. Abrasiveness of stones varies.
To twist screw piles
To spin screw piles with a drill, you will need to use high power unit. At least she should be 1 thousand. W, but at the same time the number of revolutions should be small. Usually, such devices give out 3 thousand. rpm. In this situation, you need to find such that will give 600 revolutions per minute.
Nozzles for twisting supports can be made with your own hands or pick up ready-made options. The stores present multipliers that are used specifically for these purposes. Multipliers for spinning screw piles made on their own, are not very different from the shop, however, lose the second in aesthetic attractiveness. Plus, the purchase multiplier will last longer.
Of course, it does not make sense to buy it if you plan to make only one foundation, but for reusable use, it is still better to spend and buy a good model.
Filter lathe can get out of the drill. Back in the Soviet Union, they produced special devices that facilitate work to homemade masters. They had many nozzles to secure bars, were equipped with an angle adjustment function. If you have a similar model in the garage, but you did not know before that moment, for which she and how to approach her, look at the video structure.
Now the industry does not stand still, and similar machines are also issued. Machines in a large assortment are presented on the market. They are equipped with special vice, with the help of which the drill is fixed. However, when choosing you need to be attentive: many of these machines are not suitable for some drills, as well as screwdrivers.
Homemade tools are greater popularity, since a lathe of a drill is intended for hobby. For professional use Prefers to acquire full-fledged independent instruments.
How to make a lathe of a drill, look in the following video.
For metal cutting
When working in hard-to-reach places (for example, on the roof), workers or hosts preferring their own home to repair their home, faced with the same problem. To cut the surplus, correct the size of the sheet or simply imagine it a bit, they had to descend each time and make this work using special equipment. It is quite clear that you can’t take it on the roof. Then engineers came up with a special nozzle “Scissors” for a drill.
Nozzle “Scissors” has become a real salvation, several times reducing and simplifying such work. In the future, it began to use it and simply in repair work: when you need to trim the chain grid, cut the part of a specific shape.
It is worth noting that with the help of these “scissors” you can cut not only metal. They are great for working with plastic.
However, it is ultimately not recommended to work by wood, as this will lead to quickly spurring equipment, and the expected effect you cannot achieve.
For drilling in hard-to-reach places
It happens that you need to drill a hole in some hard to reach place, for example, inside a narrow drawer, where the drill does not pass. Special for such cases and angular adapters were invented. They are an adapter in the form of the letter G. As a rule, the speed of rotation, and the torque itself is saved here, so you will not notice any difference, working just a drill or tool with such a nozzle.
Limiters are needed in order not to drill hole deeper than you need. After all, it often happens that the end-to-end perforation is not needed. In the classic version, such a limiter is attached to a drill on top, after which the hole is drilled until the limiter persists into the wall. However, variations are possible.
Some prefer to put a limiter on the drill. It looks like a plastic nut. The principle of operation is the same: as soon as the nut is predicted into the wall, you need to stop drilling.
There are completely handicraft ways. For example, some limit the length of the drill, winding it with a piece of the patch in the required place.
You can also wear a dowel drill with a wide side of the drill. Then the restriction will be great, but it will be possible to accurately determine which depth you drilled a hole.
Advantages and disadvantages
The use of additional devices for the drilling tool has both their supporters and opponents. Nevertheless, it is worth considering the advantages and disadvantages in more detail to objectively assess the usefulness. So, the advantages of using such devices.
- Savings on buying equipment. It is quite logical that buy nozzle or even a whole design will be released much cheaper than new technical apparatus. For example, an inexpensive cut mill will cost from 1,500 rubles to 2,200 rubles, and the milling machine is from 3,500 rubles and more expensive.
- Saving space. To storing such devices, it will take a much less place in the garage than for new bulky instruments.
- Large selection of devices. You can find not only classic drilling tools. Miracle nozzles will turn into a lathe and a lathe and cutter for metal, and in the building unit for screwing the piles – options may be a great set.
Of course, this list is not complete. Each person can find additional advantages, meaningful for him. The minuses include primarily limited functionality. Obviously, the nozzle cannot be compared in the quality of performance with a full-fledged machine. It is also necessary before buying to check whether this device is suitable for your drilling tool. In our age, when manufacturers are an infinite set, extremely easy to make a mistake with the choice and buy an absolutely inappropriate thing.
How to choose and use?
There are several simple rules for choosing:
- Always pay attention to the manufacturer, read reviews;
- Take a drill to the store and do not hesitate to try on a nozzle or device – it can save you money.
How to use one or another device, indicated in the instructions. General rule Only one thing – do not neglect security measures.
How to make it yourself?
Most often masters you need to make a special rack, as it is the most versatile of all devices. It can be used for smooth drilling from top to bottom – vertical drilling at right angles. The limiting height of the drilling bar is determined only by the height of the rack and the length of the drill.
As a bed (base), a thick metal sheet or a chipboard thick up to 5 cm can be used. Standing will serve as a square cross section. You can also take the guides with which ordinary boxes are extended and argued. Then you don’t have to think over the mechanism of moving a drill. Carriage can be made of corners. On it pinned a clamp for a drill. For fastening, you can use ordinary clamps that fasten the tap pipes.
You can make the rack according to the drawings available on the Internet.
Detailed step by step instructions, how to assemble a rack for a drill with your own hands, you can see in the video. Below are different options, so you can choose any taste.
