Bosch Hammer Drill Dust Collector
The Bosch hammer drill is one of the most popular power tools used in construction industry. The Bosch hammer drill is designed to cut through wood, metal, and other materials. The tool was originally developed in Germany during World War II by the German company “Bosch”. The tool is manufactured by several different companies worldwide.
In the United States, the Bosch hammer drill is sold under various brand names including: Bosch, Honec, and Sperry. These brands are not interchangeable and do not have identical features or performance characteristics. For example, some models may use a carbide tip while others use a diamond tipped tip. Some models may come with an adjustable blade while others don’t feature any type of blade at all. Some models may come with a dust collection system while others do not.
While these differences between brands and models might seem insignificant, they can make a difference when it comes to safety concerns. When using different types of blades, there is the possibility that dust particles will get caught up in the sharp edges of the blade tips causing them to pierce skin or cause injury if used incorrectly. Since the blade is exposed, it is important to wear protective gear when working with a wood cutting blade. The same rule applies for a diamond or tungsten-carbide cutting blade as well.
When used in combination with other power tools, the Bosch hammer drill can pose a serious injury hazard if proper safety gear is not worn. For example, the drill may be used in combination with a nail gun or brad nailer. When operating these devices, it is very easy to accidentally hit your fingers. Additionally, the nail may go off course causing the tip of the nail to lodge into your finger.
Even the handle of the drill itself can cause injury. The hammer drill features an electric brake and when the trigger is released, it causes the bit to keep spinning and in some cases the drill keeps moving even after it is taken out of a piece of wood or other material.
