In addition, cash deposits to Our Bank Account may be notified to the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) for approval of any refund.

The provision of our services to you is covered by the Consumer Contracts (Information,
Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
These regulations govern the relationship between you and us for the protection of both parties.
We are required to:
5.1.1 Give consumers certain information prior to conclusion of the contract. (We comply with this requirement by providing these Terms & Conditions on Our Website)
5.1.2 Give consumers confirmation of the prior information in writing or in another durable medium which is available and accessible to the consumer. (We comply with this requirement by providing a copy of these Terms & Conditions attached to the order confirmation e-mail which we send to you);

5.2 Exceptions to the right to cancel under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
Unless the parties have agreed otherwise, the consumer will not have the right to cancel in respect of certain distance contracts. This applies to the following types of contract, amongst others: for the supply of goods or services which are priced according to fluctuations in the financial market and cannot be controlled by the supplier.
As we supply goods which are priced according to fluctuations in the financial market and such fluctuations cannot be controlled by us, the supplier, there is no option to cancel your order to us under the provisions of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
5.3 Notwithstanding the provisions of clauses 5, 5.1 and 5.2 above, in the interest of providing excellent Customer Service We are prepared to allow Cancellation of orders in exceptional circumstances at our absolute discretion. All requests for order cancellation will be considered on an individual basis and the Company’s decision as to whether or not to allow a requested cancellation will be final and binding. Due to the inherent fluid nature of the precious metals markets, all agreed Order Cancellations by the Buyer are subject to Our Market Loss Policy.
5.4 Our Market Loss Policy is essential to protect us from any adverse movement of tools markets when dealing with cancelled orders. Cancelled orders will be subject to a Market Loss Charge equivalent to any loss to Us resulting from movement in the steel price value of the Order between the Submission of the Order and the Cancellation of the Order; plus an Administration Fee of £25. Any market gain on cancellations shall remain the property of Drill Easy ltd. We will deduct the total sum payable to us under this Market Loss Policy from any part or full payments that you have made to us in respect of subsequently cancelled orders. Any refunds of payments, following the deduction of payments due to us under this Market Loss Policy, will be made to the source of the original payment. Payments made to us by Bank Transfer will be refunded to the originating bank account. Payments made to us by PayPal will be refunded to the originating PayPal account. (Not including any surcharge made in respect of PayPal Payments as at 3.2 above, such surcharges being strictly non-refundable).
5.5 Request for Cancellation of an Order must be made strictly in writing by email. Drill Easy ltd does not accept requests for Cancellations of Orders over the phone or by any other means. Any Cancellation request e-mails must be successfully received by the Company before we despatch your order. It is your responsibility to ensure that you type in the correct e-mail address when sending such an e-mail to Drill Easy ltd by contact form. Under no circumstances can Cancellation of an Order be accepted once the Order has been despatched.

This process may include the requirement for the customer to submit documentation to us relating to proof of identity and address. All orders for which we receive cleared funds and security check clearance by 1400hrs on a working day will be dispatched on the same working day for secure delivery as specified in the delivery option selected at checkout.

What Is Rotation Speed and Why Is It So Important For Drilling?
Rotation speed refers to the rate at which an object is rotated. It is measured in Revolutions Per Minute (RPM). In the context of the stone industry, this refers to the number of rotations that the drill makes in one minute. RPM speeds are crucial for successful drilling.
Common faults with diamond drills are usually due to incorrect rotation speeds. If you are experiencing damaged/broken materials, chipped or unclean holes or a slow drilling process, it is usually associated with the rotation speed. In addition, drills can get damaged as a direct result of the incorrect RPM speed being used.
Revolutions Per Minute – Set For Optimum Result
The RPM speed is related to both the material being drilled and the diameter. It is sometimes thought that the faster the drill is rotated the faster it will cut or that larger drill diameters need to be rotated faster than smaller drill diameters. For example, a 35mm diameter core drill cutting granite should be rotated at approximately 350rpm while a 100mm diameter size should be rotated at 190rpm. Generally, the speed should decrease as the hardness and abrasiveness of the material increases and/or the diameter increases in size.
If the diamond tool rotates too slowly, it drags on the surface and creates heat. If it spins to fast, it causes friction, will not cut and also generates heat. Excessive heat is a major problem for diamond tools of any kind. With sintered core drills, the metal bond that the diamonds are surrounded by must wear away to continuously keep re-exposing diamonds grits for the tool to continue cutting. If the tool becomes overheated, the metal bond does not wear away, instead, it covers the diamond, meaning the drill does not cut and the diamond has become “glazed”.
How To Calculate The Correct RPM Speed For Your Drill
The following table displays the recommended RPM speeds for a range of drill diameter sizes and different materials. To use the table, find the name of the material you are drilling in the top row and follow the column down until you find the diameter of drill you are using on the furthest left-hand column.
This will display the recommended rotation speed, measured by Revolutions Per Minute.
