The Electrical drill was invented in 1889 in Melbourne Australia. The drill is a tool which is used to create a hole. Generally, it is used to create a hole in hard substance. The drill has two different actions that are rotary action and hammering action. So, the hole which is been created with the help of the drill is through its rotary or hammering action. They typically look like a handgun, with a trigger type button. They are also used for pouring screws and are often provided with a hammer action which makes them capable of being used as masonry drills. The screw guns or electric screwdrivers are generally suitably modified drills. These kinds of drills have a motor which contains brushes. The authentic design works with a single forward drill and have a very simple on-off action of the button; they can work on both, AC or DC power.
