Extend The Life Of Your Paper Drill

Manual Single-Hole Paper DrillPaper drills, as is the case with corner rounders and paper cutters, will eventually become dull over time. There are a few things you can do to extend the life of your hollow paper drill bit. These tips don’t cost a lot and will easily make up for themselves over time.

To begin with, drilling paper creates a lot of heat. This heat can cause premature dulling in a paper drill. One great way to cut down on this heat, and keep your paper from being burned, is by using drilling wax. We specifically offer drill-ease wax found here.

Another great way to cut down on heat is to be gentler with the drill. This applies more to manual paper drills. Rather than pressing down on the manual paper drill with a lot of force (creating heat), let up on the pressure and allow the drill cut through the paper naturally. You usually only loose a few seconds, but heat is dramatically cut down.

Paper Drill Bit SharpenerAnother tip, that very few people are aware of, is that paper drill bits can be re-sharpened. Rather than throwing away that dull bit, simply sharpen it back up. Our paper drill sharpeners come in a variety of different designs and styles, depending on your preference. You can find our paper drill bit sharpeners here. If your drill can no longer be sharpened, we offer new paper drill bits here.

If your paper drill is damaged, it may be fixable. Contact our Service Department at 1-800-658-8788 and check to see if your paper drill can be repaired. There may be a simple part replacement that can give your paper drill a new lease on life.

If your paper drill is irreversibly damaged, or if you simply need a new machine, we offer a great selection of single and triple hole paper drills here. This includes manual, electric and pneumatic designs.
