Daves Workshop #4: Drill Master 68287 18v drill vs 3/4" auger bit and pine 2x4. Who will win?

12-22-2016 04:27 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Okay for this demo / test I put a full charge on the Drill Master 68287 18v 3/8” cordless drill, and threw my most common auger bit size at it, my 3/4” Irwin SpeedBor auger bit. (The one I use for boring 3/4” holes in tree stumps for using Stump Rot). Is this drill up to this fairly simple and common task? Watch for yourself and find out! View on YouTube

Drill Master 68287 18v drill and flashlight unboxing.

11-28-2016 11:03 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

About the only thing I use my cordless drill for is woodworing projects away from my shop. Sadly on my last outing, I left my cheap 18v cordless drill behind to never be found again… Good thing I buy the cheap Drill Master drill / flashlight combos from Harbor Freight Tools… So with sale flyer in hand I went to Harbor Freight and picked up a new one. See the attached unboxing video to see what is in the box… View on YouTube

DeWALT goes American

04-03-2014 04:02 AM by swirt | 16 comments »

I fully embrace the global community and think the world is an interesting place with everyone from all walks of life in it. That being said, I am a fan of American made. Call it one part pride and one part liking to make sure my neighbors and my neighbors neighbors are employed. Recently DeWalt has made a commitment to this ideal and has moved production of many of its tools, including power tools, back to US soil. They have a pretty awesome video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUvnK...

I USED THIS TO BUILD 'TOY CRANE'

03-31-2012 06:19 AM by Metrotek | 7 comments »

This is the machine I used to build, ‘Toy Crane’; they’re phenomenal machines. I cut circles and everything else on it. It was the first time I ever used one; in fact ever saw one. That veneer is hard to work without machines made for maching it that have small advance scoring saws; it tears right off of the core. It’s best to score it with a utility knife and use masking tape to prevent tear out.The patterns were covered with a perimeter of elastomer and an ejector created a partia...

Cordless Drill Holder

Here are 3 part videos I made on a cordless drill holder. I can’t take the credit for the idea, but I thought I would show how easy and fun it is to make. Economical, too. I saw this idea a few years ago in a woodworking magazine. I Hope the information is helpful.Thanks for viewing.

Amazing Tools #12: drill-powered wheelchair

07-25-2010 01:46 PM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

This is being manufactured by DPX Systems. Apparently you can get 4 miles out of one cordless drill’s charge (190lbs man). I guess if you go a little less than 2 miles, you can use the drill for a little bit when you get there, and still have enough to get back home.
