How Quickly to Make Carvings in Metal With the Help of a Cordless Screwdriver.

About: I conduct the blog, YouTube channel, I am engaged in reviews of various electronics, completions, alterations. I especially like power supplies.

Sometimes I have to do a lot of carving in metal. Of course, a large thread diameter will be difficult to make, but up to 5-6mm is quite realistic.I will not tell for very long, it's easier to see this on video, but I'll explain a little.

I used:

Cordless drill Metabo PowerMaxx 4.8 V. It has a very convenient reversal switch and a spindle lock.

3mm drill for hole preparation

Rough tap with a diameter of 4mm

Finishing tap with a diameter of 4mm

Drill diameter 6.5mm to prepare the hole before threading and chip removal.

The operation takes very little time, first we drill a hole with a diameter of 3 mm, then we do a few turns with a 6.5 mm drill, cut it with a fine tap, then a clean tap, then we remove the shavings, everything. :)
