Understanding Industrial Equipment and Our Manufacturing Legacy

I'm Sandra Adams, a blogger and enthusiast of many eclectic targets, including pottery and industrial equipment and supplies. I've traced my family tree as far back as I can go and there is not one moment where my family hasn't been involved in manufacturing. My dad worked as a mechanic repairing industrial machinery and if it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have anyone to pass down his knowledge to. I've always wanted to know what my dad was up to, so I'd ask him what he did everyday. I've always been really curious and this has lead me to develop a really strong understanding of industrial equipment. My love for industrial equipment hasn't waned and now I feel like sharing this knowledge with others. I've created this blog for this exact purpose.

3 Tips For Maintaining Your Miniature Drills


No matter what professional field you work in, you'll need to get a handle on taking care of the micro tools that you have at your disposal. These tools are incredibly convenient and efficient, in that they allow people in fields like dentistry, family medicine and industrial professions to perform the work that they need to with great power. However, it is important to remember that these tools are only as useful as the maintenance that you provide the tools. To keep your business running smoothly, consider the following bits of information to help you out. 

#1: Keep Drill Bits Sharp And Give Your Mini Drill A Rest

If you want to be sure that you are able to keep your drill intact and useful, you will need to delegate time off to let the engine cool. In addition to not overworking the drill, you'll need to either keep your drill bits sharp or discard them when they become too dull. The reason for this is twofold. For one, sharper drill bits allow you to more efficiently use the drill with less effort. Also, using a drill with dull drill bits will make the drill have to work too hard, which can also cause the engine to burn out prematurely. 

#2: Make Sure Your Drill Is Always Oiled And Clean

Keeping your drill properly lubricated will allow each part to move seamlessly, without overworking it and creating too much friction. Don't overdo it -- provide just a couple of drops of oil to your drill, so that the moving parts can freely operate, without jamming up and grinding. To keep your drill clean, keep it covered or in a case when not in use. Keeping your drill in a room that collects dust will jam up the engine and create a series of problems. You can clean this by using a can of compressed air, and using an acetone cleaning product to get rid of oil build up. 

#3: Get Your Drill Inspected Annually

Since you use your drill on a frequent basis, you'll need to touch base with a repair shop that can inspect it and work out the kinks on an annual basis. By doing this, you'll be able to fix its working parts and get more longevity out of your micro drill. Since these parts are incredibly small, you will also need an expert set of eyes to assist you in fixing it for the long haul of use. 

Take advantage of these tips, so that you are able to get the best performance possible out of your mini drills.
