DIY DRILL MOD

Camper Trailer Australia - - BUSH MECHANICS -

When things go ma­jorly wrong on the tracks, a good 12V drill can work won­ders. Whether it’s to drill new holes to bolt things back to­gether again, or to drill out that bloody snapped axle stud!

A top mod­i­fi­ca­tion is to make some elec­tri­cal ca­bles up that plug your drill di­rectly to your ve­hi­cle’s bat­tery. About 6mm au­to­mo­tive elec­tri­cal ca­ble should do the trick. Sim­ply at­tach two fe­male crimp ter­mi­nals on the end to plug into the drills ter­mi­nals (re­move the drills bat­tery), and put two al­li­ga­tor clips on the other end to hook up to your ve­hi­cle’s bat­tery. Re­mem­ber not to bug­ger up your pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive ter­mi­nals and, hey presto! You’ve got a drill with never-end­ing power!
