Greetings from a new forum member. Recently moved house and currently a month into the endless list of jobs that such provides!

I've just bought a Ryobi RSDS680-KP drill. My first SDS drill after years of battling against early 1900s brickwork (I know, I know; I'm an idiot for not getting one sooner).

Quick question, as trying to get a straight forward answer from the Ryobi website is akin to sieving water. What's the difference between the "Chisel" setting and the "Chisel Alignment" setting, please? I need to remove the plaster from brickwork and want to make sure that either setting is right before I bugger up either the walls, or the drill. Link to the Ryobi site/spec below.

Thanks for your time.

I am only guessing as I have suffered from "it". No knowledge about Ryobi, but when you go into hammer only action you would normally need to place the chisel at an angle that suits your hands and what you got to do. I guess the chisel alignment thingme allows you to rotate the chuck to get the chisel where you want it to be. Does it?

Thanks both, much appreciated. I'm going to give that a whirl- makes most sense to me thinking about it. It's gone through fairly solid brickwork like butter, so I'm hoping if I get this right, that it'll do the same. Will try and report back. Cheers.

Just to report back - exactly as suggested. It's sort of a clutch to allow you to rotate the chisel to where you need it.

I'm in between a state of joy as to how quickly I've got the plaster off the walls, and a state off kicking myself for not getting one sooner!

Thanks again. Much appreciated. :salute:
