A drill machine is usually present in most homes. However, it sits in the cupboard gathering dust unless we have a very specific need to take it out. We are not using it to its full potential. We will take a look at some life hacks that are going to change the way we think about drill machines.
What do you normally do when you have to screw something in place? Find a screwdriver and begin the treacherous process of twisting and turning? You can save all that effort and time if you simply place the screw inside the electric drill and watch the screw slide into place at the push of a button.
Some people like to eat fruits with the skin on whereas peeling can be an arduous process for others. You can minimize the hassle by inserting the drill bit in the middle of an apple and hold the peeler above it. You will see the apple peeling itself.
So what if you don’t have a milk frothing machine? Does that mean you don’t deserve to enjoy a good cup of coffee? Most certainly not. Take a coat hanger and cut it such that you have a small hook at one end. Insert this end into the mug and the other one in your drill machine and your frothing machine is good to go.
Store a couple of screws right on your drill machine. All you have to do is take some superglue and magnets. Attach the magnets to the drill machine permanently and you have holders for screws right on your drill machine.
Make your own mechanical sharpener. Insert a pencil into the drill machine and the tip of the pencil into a normal sharpener. Turn on the drill to see pencil shavings coming out of the sharpener on its own.
Make a cleaning drill for things like a messy keyboard. Take an old toothbrush and cut off its head. Drill a hole in the center and attach a screw to this. Insert the end of the screw in the drill and you’ve got yourself a pretty handy tool.
Finally, if you like drilling but you like neatness as well. Just attach a sticky note below the surface you are drilling in and watch as the debris gathers on the paper rather than piling up on the ground.
