The drill and driver are two of the many tools that a carpenter often uses when he is repairing or fixing something. The difference between them is how they work. A drill has a cutting tool fitted to its end, which is typically used to boreholes in the materials or surfaces. A drill has a tremendous force that is applied directly to the bit as the object being drilled is hit. A driver, on the other hand, increases the force but in a perpendicular direction to the bit.

This positioning means that the direction at which force is wielded about 90 degrees to the bit. When a drill is operated, the bit turns and drills a hole or drives a screw into a wall, and this is what we call direct force. On the other hand, the driver is different. The driver pushes a small anvil against the structure from the side, as opposed to battering the screw directly on its face.

The driver and the drill are two of the several tools that carpenters use in carrying out their job whenever they work at home or in their workshop. A drill happens to be a tool that has a cutting tool attached to its end, used in boring holes in surfaces or materials. An example of a surface on which the drill tool is used is on doors, which allows the door handle to be attached to it. On the other hand, a driver is a tool that is mostly used in driving screws into a suitable hole. In this present day, there are drivers that you can also use in boring holes before you insert your screw.

Moreover, while using a drill, the surface being drilled is hit, and a huge force is exerted into the bit directly. Conversely, a driver exerts its own force incrementally to the bit in a perpendicular direction. This implies that it exerts a force at about 90 degrees direction to the bit. The mechanism of the driver works in such a way that a tiny anvil is pushed from the side against the rotating mechanism.
