Is a drill better than a pickaxe Terraria?

Pickaxes are pretty much always better than their drill counterpart as of patch 1.3. 0.8. All pickaxes and drills of the same ore have the same pickaxe power and mining speed (except orichalcum, where the pickaxe has a faster mining speed). Drills offer only aesthetic differences over their pickaxe counterparts.

Then, what is the difference between a drill and a pickaxe Terraria?

Pickaxes actually have knockback, meaning you can actually repel enemies while mining, unlike drills, which only do damage. This also means they can acquire modifiers specialized for melee weapons, increasing damage as well. In addition, pickaxes are affected by melee speed boosts, which increase mining speed.
