Magnetic Base Drill

A magnetic base drill is a drill which uses a magnet in it’s ability to drill a hole.

They are mainly used when drilling through eye beams or truck chassis or any metal that is thick.

Before drilling you can switch the magnet on and the drill becomes embedded on the metal beam and is protected with a chain.
