This system replaces commonly used big magnetic drills and drill bits. Instead, it utilizes a light-weight mag drill and annular cutters (“slugger bits’). With the C-Sert System, you’ll open up the C-Sert’s pilot hole by making several lap cuts with the annular cutters rather than making one cut with a heavy mag drill and a drill bit. This saves your back, it saves you time, and it keeps you safe.
How to open up the Pilot Hole
- Open the mag drill case. Read the manufacturer’s instructions. Yeah, yeah, we know no one reads the instructions, but read the ones that matter. Forget the stuff that says, “Don’t stick your fingers in the electrical outlet…” You know what we mean.
- The drill comes with a threaded stud that keeps the chuck from damage in shipping. Remove the stud by using a pliers and the tapered “shiv” that comes with the drill to knock the chuck loose. If the chuck comes completely loose, make sure the “tang” on the end of the Morse taper lines up with the internal slot in the chuck. Use a flashlight if you have to. Then give the chuck a good solid blow to make sure it’s seated fully, or else it can go bad.
- Put everything you’ll need on a cart next to your project. No running back and forth to the crib to get stuff you forgot! That includes everything we sent you, plus plant air to blow out chips, a hammer, ratchet or torque multiplier, sockets, and a screwdriver to break up the chips the C-Sert will make as it cuts its way in.
- Put the 60-degree center in the chuck. Tighten one set screw.
- Plug in the drill.
