Mag drills, also known as magnetic-base drills, are a type of portable drilling machine that utilizes a magnetic base to securely hold the drill in place while in use. This allows the drill to be used on vertical or overhead surfaces without the need for additional clamping or holding devices.
Mag drills are commonly used in the construction, fabrication, and maintenance industries for tasks such as drilling holes for electrical conduit, HVAC systems, and plumbing. They are also used in shipbuilding, aerospace and automotive manufacturing.
There are several types of mag drill bits available, including annular cutters, core drills, and twist drills. Annular cutters, also known as broach cutters, are used for cutting large holes and are particularly useful for drilling through thick metal. Core drills, on the other hand, are used for drilling smaller holes, typically for the installation of pipes or electrical conduit. Twist drills, which are the most common type of mag drill, are used for drilling holes of all sizes.
