When it comes to using a conventional drill, you would think that you just plug in your bit and that’s it. What you have in your hands is about what you can use to get the job done. However, there are even more ways to creatively use your drill than you might originally thought. With a little bit of creativity and some things you probably have laying around in the garage, you can make your drill do all kinds of different tasks. Some of these might be simple tasks and others might be ones that you will only have to do once in a lifetime but, if you’re looking to use it once, why go out and buy something expensive for the job in the first place?
In this one, we discover something different from what you might be able to get out of your drill, like converting it into a hole saw, using it to tie together wire, and more. Sometimes, you’ll find your back up against the wall and in a tight spot where you need a job done but don’t have the time to head out and buy the proper tool and maneuvering what you’ve got can really be a way to figure something out to make all the right pieces fall in place. There’s something that’s just so satisfying about being able to create a mechanism like these on your own, as well.
Follow along in the video below that shows some creative and unconventional methods that take aim at stretching out the usability of your drill and your budget. If there’s one thing that we have definitely learned it’s that some toolshave more than one purpose if you try hard enough. With tricks like these, you might even be able to slice the moneythat you spend on different tools and bits in half. Nothing is better than saving money and keeping it in your pocket.
