    What Should You Look For When Buying A Nail Drill?

    1: Rotational speed

    The higher the torque, the higher the speed of the drill. And the speed determines the product function. The nail drill will be used more widely with the higher speed because it will not be easy to stop turning with friction when polishing.

    2: Vibration

    The vibration frequency of a drill can affect the personal experience. If the vibration frequency is too high, your hands will be numb easily, so that it will affect the operating sensitivity.

    3: Heat dissipation

    Any E-file nail drills will produce a lot of heat inside because of the high speed of the motor. So a handle of good heat dissipation can protect your hands from high temperature scalding. For the ordinary carbon brush drill, long - term use will shorten the life of it if the heat generated by motor rotation cannot be released.

    4: Noise level

    Harsh noise is harmful to one's hearing, so it is also important to choose a low noise drill.

    5: Bit heads

    Different bit heads can be used in many different ways. You just need to buy a drill to achieve a wide range of usage needs if the size of the bit head jack for a drill you bought is in line with the wide variety of standard sizes available on the market.

    6: Lifespan

    At present, the price of professional drill is not cheap, so it is a good investment to buy a drill with a long life.

    7: Fashion appearance and vertical design

    The drill bit fixture could be used to place the nail drill bits, and the handpiece hole could be used to place the handpiece when not in use.
