This thesis, which is a requirement for a degree in Mining Engineering, emphasizes many current drills and drilling trends; however, without a complete discussion of the numerous factors that effect drills and drilling the reader would still be at a loss in selecting a drill to fit his particular need. With this purpose in mind, I have first attempted to discuss the many variables which must be considered and this is followed by the various types of drilling and drills.
