What is a Magnetic Drill?
A magnetic drill is a specialized portable power tool
used for drilling holes in steel and similar metals.
• They are used on the job site or in the shop
• Also referred to as a mag drill, portable base
drills, portable drill press
When Do I Use a Mag Drill?
It can be time-consuming and cumbersome
to try to maneuver large steel or pipe into
position at a stationary drill press or work center.
A portable magnetic drill allows you to take the
drill to the work piece, instead of trying to bring
the work piece to the drill.
• A portable magnetic drill may be
used in any position—vertical,
horizontal, or overhead (upside down)
Where is a Mag Drill Used?
• Steel Fabrication
• Building & Construction
• Bridge Rebuilding
• Mining
• Ship Building
• Truck, RV & Special Vehicle Build
• Pipeline, Offshore & Oil Fields
• Welding Shops
• Power Utilities
• Railroad Industries
• Maintenance Facilities
• Mobile Repair Shops
• Machinery Riggers
Mag drills are used
everywhere from
one person shops
to large plants and
construction sites
with 1,000’s of
workers

What is an Annular Cutter?
An annular cutter is a specialized bit for drilling
through steel. Like a hole saw for wood, an
annular cutter only cuts the outside edge of a hole.
It produces accurate burr-free holes to close
tolerances without pre-drilling or step drilling. It can
drill a much larger hole and requires less force and
time than a standard twist drill bit. As it turns, the
cutter produces chips from the outside cutting
edges and after cutting the hole a ‘slug’ (round
chunk of steel from the center of the cutter) falls out.
What Annular Cutter Do I Use?
Use the chart on page 19 to determine which
annular cutter to use. The cutter you select depends
on the diameter of the hole, the depth of cut and the
type of material. A wide range of annular cutters are
designed to cut through the following materials:
• Carbon Steel
• Stainless Steel
• Aluminum
Why Use an Annular Cutter?
Annular Cutters offer superior holemaking capabilities.
They cut faster, last longer, produce a better hole
finish, a true round hole with very tight tolerances, can
be re-sharpened and drills holes with less power
and torque.

Diameter & Depth
When determining cutter size, they are
measured by depth and diameter. If
you look at an actual cutter the depth is
actually longer than what it is rated,
(a 1" cutter is really 1-1/4") because this
ensures the tool can drill all the way
through the hole and allows extra length
for resharpening.

Standard vs. Stack-Cut Geometry
Most annular cutters come with Standard geometry.
These cutters are designed to cut through one piece of
steel. They offer the fastest, cleanest hole producing a
slug that looks like a ‘Top Hat’. When the job requires
drilling two or more pieces of steel, cutters with
stack-cut geometry must be used. The cutting teeth cut
from the inside out producing a round cylinder slug.
Non-Coated vs. Coated
For 80% of applications a
standard HSS cutter works.
Using a coated or carbide cutter in
these applications offers no
additional benefit. Hard materials
is where the benefit of using a
coated or carbide cutter will pay off
with increased tool life.

Angles on the cutting teeth make a big difference in
how the tool performs. More precision angles increase
the tool life and accuracy. Hougen tools have four

What is a Pilot?
Pilots go through the center of the cutter. They
retract up into the mag drill arbor as the hole
is made. Pilots last a very long time and can be
used with multiple sizes of cutters.
Slot allows coolant to flow
to the cutting teeth
Other Types of Annular Cutters
Hougen makes many different annular cutters even ones for sheet metal. Below are two
styles of annular cutters for use in hand-held drills and drill presses. They offer many of
the same advantages as the mag drill annular cutters such as speed, quality of hole and
longer tool life.
Holcutterâ„¢
RotaCutâ„¢
www.hougen.com
A Pilot is a large nail looking object
that must be used when using
an annular cutter. It serves
three very important
functions:
1. Locates the center of
the hole
2. Allows coolant to flow down
around the slug and to the
cutting teeth
3. Ejects the slug at the end of the cut
11
What Makes an Annular Cutter Turn?
Annular Cutters are most often used with mag
drills but can also be used with machine tools
such as mills and large drill presses with tool
holders.

Mag Drill - Surface Requirements
TIPS & TROUBLESHOOTING FOR USING
MAG DRILLS & ANNULAR CUTTERS
Mag Drill - Magnet Adhesion
Mag drills must magnetize to a solid surface. Magnetic strength is related to steel
thickness. Minimum thickness is 3/8”. If the material is thinner, the magnet will not hold
well. Clamp another piece of steel on top or below the thinner steel for stronger adhesion.
Material that is clean and free from coatings will offer the best surface for the magnet. For
non-ferrous materials use a Vac-padâ„¢ (HMD904 & HMD905 only) or clamp a piece a steel
on top of it.
A clean smooth surface will allow the magnet to ‘stick’ better. Situations where the magnet
will have reduced holding power...
a) Material less than 3/8” thick
b) Coatings or paint layers on material
c) Chips, dirt, or grease between the magnet and the material
d) Curved surface (Surface should be flat. For pipe applications, a pipe adapter
should be used.)
e) Magnet only partially on work surface
How Do I Keep My Mag Drill from Slipping?
Make sure the drill’s magnetic base is clear of chips and debris and is securely attached to
a clean surface. Uneven surfaces or large debris buildup prevents the magnet from
obtaining optimal holding power, which can cause the drill to shift or lift during operation.
A safety chain or strap also helps to prevent injury if the drill shifts. If it does shift or lift
during the cut, it is very possible the cutter will break. Hougen mag drills have a built-in
safety circuit that stops the motor when the drill lifts from the material. Always use a safety
chain especially in horizontal & overhead positions.

SPECIFIC SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

13
Do I Have to Use Coolant?
No.... BUT... Coolant increases annular cutter tool life dramatically. Hougen offers a
number of different kinds of lubricant depending on the application. RotaMagicâ„¢
Concentrated Cutting Fluid is a biodegradable coolant that is mixed with water and used
with a mag drills coolant system. Slick-Stikâ„¢ is a waxy lubricant. The user applies a glob
to the inside and cutting teeth. Slick-Stik melts as the hole is made. Good for horizontal
and overhead holes. RotaFoamâ„¢ is a foamy spray lubricant that is sprayed onto the cutter
before each hole.
For best results use the mag drills coolant system. Spraying or squirting coolant at the
cutter while it is turning does very little in helping tool life. Most of the coolant is pushed
aside by the chips and flutes before it reaches the cutting teeth.
*** Note: For Hougen drills without coolant bottles... fill the coolant reservoir
through the slots in the arbor. This will hold enough coolant for one hole.
The
#
1
cause of
cutters quickly
dulling is too little
feed pressure.
“Babying” the tool
will only decrease
tool life.
What Causes Dull or Broken Cutters?
The primary cause of broken or prematurely dull
cutters is a feed rate that is too slow. Slow feed
rates will reduce the life of your cutter. Using a firm,
steady feed pressure throughout the cut will
maximize performance and extend tool life. You
want to hear the drill motor working & the cutter
producing long stringy chips that are being pulled
from the hole. Look for a bird’s nest around the
cutter.
Blue Chips = Big Problem
(Something obstructing the coolant system or you’re pushing too hard)
Second reason why cutters break is
movement of the drill or work piece. The
cutter wall can easily be snapped if the drill
and material is not held rigid.
Good Looking Chips ! !
www.hougen.com
Make sure you have the correct cutter for the
material. Stack-Cut for multiple layers.
14
Why Does My Slug Stick?
Using lubricant or cutting fluid helps the slug to eject at the end of the cut. But when
slug ejection becomes unreliable or the steel resists cutting, it probably means the
cutter’s cutting edges are becoming dull. Re-sharpen or replace your cutter. Also make
sure there are no chips inside your cutter which can hold up a slug. Also periodically
check your ejection springs to maintain proper spring life.
Maintaining Your Mag Drill
For the best performance, always maintain your drill as instructed in the operator’s
manual. A list of op manuals can be found at Hougen.com if the manual supplied with
your drill can not be located. Many mag drills feature a slide/gib/way system that requires
periodic adjustments to maintain rigidity and optimal performance. Worn or damaged
parts should be replaced to reduce the possibility of injury. The mag drill should be spot
checked for damage prior to use. This will prevent costly repairs from running a
damaged drill.
www.hougen.com
Is a Safety Chain / Strap Necessary?
YES! Your mag drill should always be used with a safety strap or chain especially in
horizontal or upside down positions. Not only for safety of the operator but protecting
your investment.
True Story - Many many Hougen drills have been lost over
the years from falling from bridges when the power cord
was unplugged. They fell into the water because they
weren’t using the safety chain.
What Should I Do After Drilling the Hole?
• Turn off motor
• Ensure the slug has been ejected
• Clean away any chips from the cutting tool & around and under the magnet
Why is My Magnet Lifting Off the Material?
Check your surface as outlined in surface requirements (See Page 12). Also be sure the
bottom of the magnet is free from chips and debris. A dull cutter can also push the magnet
off the work surface. When drilling upside down, push on the handle closest to the arbor.
15
www.hougen.com
Why Not Use Quick Change Cutters?
Quick change cutters are nice and convenient if you need to change sizes every hole or
two. But using a mag drill with the two set screws to hold the cutter in place offers a
couple of advantages:
• Holds the cutter more rigid and less opportunity for it to move and break
• Will give up to 2x the tool life
Is a Carbide Cutter Better than a HSS Cutter?
Not necessarily. Carbide cutters are great tools and work good in most types of materials.
But where they really shine is when they are used in hard or abrasive materials. They can
be used in mild and structural steel but to get the best performance, carbide tooling needs
to be turned at a much higher RPM than HSS cutters.
Aren’t All Annular Cutters Pretty Much the Same?
That would be like saying all meat tastes the same. Hougen was the inventor of the mag
drill annular cutter technology. Hougen
®
Cutters include the most features for the
widest range of materials and benefits for long tool life. It takes a lot of extra time to
machine and quality check the tools to ensure the customer gets what they expect. When
purchasing a Hougen annular cutter, you are buying the highest quality Hougen tool in the
market.
What is Positive Slug Ejection?
It is an arbor system that when the feed handles are retracted requires the slug to be
pushed out after drilling a hole. The handles will not fully retract until the slug comes out
of the cutter. All Hougen drills include this feature. It is a much more reliable method than
a spring ejection arbor.
What is the Proper Feed Rate for a Mag Drill?
A solid steady feed rate should be used to maximize cutter tool life. Listen to the motor.
You want the sound of the motor to bog down a little. It should sound like its working. Do
not over drive or under drive it as you can break or damage the drill. Also do not “peck” at
the hole... meaning... feed the cutter down then let up, then feed the cutter down and let
up. This can quickly destroy your tool.
16
Can I Get a Custom Cutter Made?
Absolutely! Hougen can solve your holemaking
problems with creative solutions to help you get the
job done, complete it faster and at a lower cost. We
have helped thousands of customers with unique
holemaking solutions. Give us a call or send us an
email with your holemaking challenge.
Why Do I Have Trouble Drilling Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel is a beautiful material but it can easily work harden. Meaning... if you let off
your feed pressure and allow heat to build up, the material can harden up to the point that
it becomes almost impossible to continue. Use solid steady feed pressure, plenty of
coolant and DO NOT let up to adjust your position.
Should I Use a Power Feed Drill?
Power feed drills offer a nice option for increased productivity. Many shops set up multiple
drills for one operator to run.
