Position the bit tip in the starter hole. Before you switch the drill on, you will need to check the spirit-levels simultaneously to see if the bubbles are in the center. While drilling, check a few times whether the bubbles are still in the center. If not, slowly move the drill appropriately to get them back in center.
Ohho! That's the reading part, I know how to read a spirit level but I don't know where does it fix on my BOSCH GSB 13RE Drill machine! That's the confusion. Thanks a lot anyways.

@abhipuru, difficult to visualize without seeing it. Could you please post pictures of the drill bits, the spirit level and the drill?

OK.

1. That spirit level is not meant to be attached to the drill gun - it can only be used to align surfaces. You could perhaps tie it with rubber bands to the side of the drill (lengthwise) and try, though I am not sure of the effectiveness

2. Type 1 (3 point tip) is a wood bit. Type 2 is for concrete / stone. Type 3 is for drilling metal

3. Use the impact / hammer setting *only* with the type 2 bits. The other bits will be spoiled in that setting

I'd say that most toolkits (like mine) have only types 2 and 3. Type 3 will, depending on what it is made of, drill any material other than masonry. Type 2 should only be used for masonry. There are other specialist drills for glass and stuff.

A helpful hint to prevent the drill wandering is to use a centre punch at the hole place first, which gives the drill a slight indentation to centre on on --- but many of my shelves have still been a mm or so off level because of that hard to control start to the hole. Start on slow speed!

Bump. Need to buy a good and relatively inexpensive beam or click type torque wrench in Mumbai. Where would I find good ones, and which manufacturers are recommended?

I'm looking for an inexpensive electric screwdriver (wired) in Mumbai.
Please suggest some shops in the area around mahim, bandra, or santacruz

Folks,
Need your help here. I bought a new SKIL drilling machine over the weekend. After coming hone, I plugged it in to just see whether it is working fine and noticed some sparks (not electrical sparks but the ones that we see when we try and sharpen a knife against a grinding stone)
Is that common or something unusual?

Thanks

For folks in Mumbai, the GSB10RE version is available at Home Town for approx Rs 3200.

@argee - Lovely tools, where did you get the mechanic toolset and would you mind sharing the cost. I'm looking for a ratchet kit.
