The batteries are choking hazards. NOT FOR INTERNAL USE.

This should be considered the Holy Grail of an answer to your enquiry:

Do not apply pressure when using the drill by leaning on it using your chest.

 You should  keep a sensible distance betweem PM and drill , then you will fine. ( Like you do with your mobile phone and your PM).

I doubt whether you will do any harm even it the drill was next to the PM, though I am not the first to be trying this. 

I have not had the hammer action of the drill affect my PM inspite of some vibration being passed up the arms to the chest. 

I regulary use battery powered tools and have never had or heard or a problem. 

 

You know you're wired when...

You fondly named your implanted buddy.

In fact after the final "tweaks" of my pacemaker programming at the one year check up it is working so well that I forget I have it.
