VSR drills are essential for drilling holes in wood, concrete, and steel. Knowing the features of a VSR drill, its power source, functionality, and other details are crucial when considering purchasing one.
A VSR drill is a valuable tool when using self-drilling screws and the drill as a screw gun, as well as when starting to drill metal. The trigger regulates the speed of the drill, and it may work in both forward and backward orientations.
I’ll cover more detail below.
What is a VSR Drill Exactly?
A Variable Speed Reverse drill is abbreviated as VSR. It’s a valuable tool when using self-drilling screws and the drill as a screw gun, as well as when starting to drill metal.
Reversible is useful when you need to remove a screw that you just inserted while utilizing the drill as a screw gun once more.
The trigger regulates the speed of the drill, and it may work in both forward and backward orientations.
