Wood is a material that looks easy to work with, but can hold surprises. Its drilling, for example, requires certain precautions, as well as perfectly adapted sharpened bits. The creation of pilot holes to the auger prevents the wood from cracking under the effect of drilling.

Using a spin
1. Mark the location of the pencil hole. Use a grease pencil that marks well on the wood.
2. Make a pilot hole with a size twist suitable for drilling or screwing.
3. Use the pilot hole for possible screwing. He will prevent the screw from cracking the wood.
1. Position the depth ring at the desired distance from the end of the bit.
2. Tighten the locking screw with a wrench to secure the ring to the correct level on the bit.
3. Drill until the depth ring comes into abutment with the wood (be careful not to mark it with the ring!).
1. Position the tape at the desired distance from the end of the wick.
2. Wrap the tape over the wick to form a depth mark.
3. Drill to the adhesive tape. Warning: it does not exert any resistance if you continue to drill!
Drill depth guide
1. Bring the drill and fence to a stop on a wooden board. Bring the rod to the wood and lower the drill and bit to align with the rod.
2. Adjust the guide shaft by pushing it to a length corresponding to the drilling depth.
3. Lock the rod by tightening the side handle here.
4. Drill until the stem comes to a stop.
