Recently I’ve been thinking about this great, powerful, fast-spinning portable tool, which can make round holes or drive fasteners using only the power obtained from a battery, the fantastic cordless drill driver. In my opinion though its capable of performing much more than what it’s meant to do. That was why I decided to make an experiment and see if I can do more with less using a cordless drill driver

 So, I asked my neighbors to lend me their drills for this article and they gave me two drills from different manufacturers. One them is a DeWalt cordless drill and the other one is a Ronix cordless drill. I thought I would give the Ronix a chance, since it was new to me and I wanted to see how it performs on different situations. I made a list of 7 crazy ways of using your drill to make the most out of it. Now let’s get to know some.

1.Drill Brush

This little idea turns your life into half if you spend too much time cleaning the kitchen. when it comes to is to scrubbing grease or dealing with baked-on food, using a dish scrubber on a drill can make things unbelievably easy. If you’re a DIYer the only thing you need to do in order to have the most practical cleaning kit is to buy a bolt and hex nut plus a dish scrubber and attach them on your cordless drill driver. If you’re not into DIY stuff, you can easily find a specific brush for your drill. You can see how I did it with Ronix cordless drill.

2.Mix Paint

In order to make a great looking aqua blue you need to mix a light shade of blue and green or a lot of blue with a little yellow. Using a cordless drill, you can make a perfect mixture and a satisfying result. Find an old skinny-handled mixing spoon or a broken plastic cloth hanger, and attach it to the DRILL , and that’s it. Now you have your paint stirrer, using which you can stir paint or anything else that needs to be mixed quickly. You could just purchase a paint mixer drill attachment too but since I’m a fan of DIYs, I rather doing it with unused stuff in the house. This Ronix 18v cordless drill did a really fine job in this experiment.
