Hand Drills

The original drill, the hand drill is now eclipsed by the popular electric and battery-powered drills, but there is still a place for it. Hand drills (which are powered by turning a crank) are good for quick drilling of small holes in soft material. They are also more convenient than power drills in places where electricity is not available.

Many hand drills now allow drill bits to be stored in the handle, a handy feature that helps keep a small selection of bits available when needed. The chuck, which grips the drill bit, is usually tightened by hand (thus eliminating the need for a check key).

These features, combined with a low price, make a hand drill a great addition to a set of emergency tools or as a practical gift for a college bound teenager.
