DIY Gear - Off Grid Power Tools


Off Grid Power Tools

Battery packs can be expensive and the chargers for them can also fail to recharge the battery packs sufficiently. Sometimes you have to use a direct solution to solve a problem. In this case, a small portable drill that operates on 12 volts was modified to work directly off a 12 volt source such as a car or tractor battery. Include a short extension cord and you are good to go.

Got off grid power tools?

Staying above the water line!

Cool beans. I figured why go electric at all and purchase / use hand crank drills and braces. One advantage I see going your method is needing only one hand to work, the other to hold the material being drilled in place.

I've got several hand tools but no hand drills. My father had one but it disappeared after he died. If I can speed things up with a little juice, it makes a small job a lot easier.

I got tired of chargers that wouldn't charge and batteries that wouldn't hold a charge. I've got an 8 foot cord that will get me close to the truck or tractor battery for power.

If all else fails, I can use a hammer and a screwdriver to punch holes in something if required.lol
