Mechanic Creates a Gas-Powered Drill From a Tiny Nitro Engine

Are you tired of running out of power or being stuck to a cord when using your drill? Then this gas-powered drill might just be the tool for you. While this may seem comical, when you actually take a look at what this mechanic put together, it seems that it could actually serve some purpose in remote locations. With that said, this man took a modified nitro engine and combined it with spare parts off of a cordless drill. It is essentially the chuck of a drill attached to the driveshaft of the small engine. He rewired the throttle to allow for operation of the drill at variable speed. The video below takes you through the entire build just in case you want to build this project yourself. If you wanted to just skim over the design and see what it can do, you can find that in the first 2 minutes.
