in fairness the manuals are light on information when it comes to holding the drill properly
i flicked through 4 or 5 manuals a few days back
they mostly say to grip the handle and loss of control could cause injury
anyone using drills regularly will already know this
what's the legal requirement on information?
The issue with me is that the power drill I was using that caused me the injury it’s beyond the bounds of possibility to hold it using the handles on it when it kicks back. Its kickback force is in the region of 770 ft-lbs/ sec in a twisting action off ones center of gravity and as I posted my last drill was rated 750W and I used it for yrs without incident and there is no comparison in the kickback power using this drill and the one that caused me the injury. And as I have posted I have spoken to construction workers who use power tools and they all spoke of having incidents with such power drills and the fear they have of such power tools.
