The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Turned around

hand held drill battery poweredIf you've got a low impact, repetitive turning task that needs to be motorized then the new Black and Decker 6 volt drill/driver might be just the tool for the job.

I've had mine for a couple of weeks now and it's really helped to streamline our Avian Aqua Miser building process.

It takes 4 AA batteries and transforms the combined 6 volts of DC power into a surprising amount of torque. We found this one at a big box store for just over 10 bucks. Don't expect it to do any medium or heavy drilling chores and you won't be disappointed.
