Drills are pickaxe-type tools, used in the mining of dirt, stone, ores and other blocks.

The lowest Tier is the Cobalt Drill. When standing still, it has a range of 6 feet (3 blocks) above and below the player, and when hugging a wall, the range is 10 feet (5 blocks) in front of them. The Cobalt Drill is crafted using an Iron Anvil. However, to craft the rest of them, a Mythril Anvil is required. Please note that Drills cannot get a +speed modifier,so it won't be able to go faster (unless you have something that does +melee speed.) Also,Drills go slightly slower than Pickaxes.
