Okay, to be honestly who loves cables? i have an small workshop in my house and i hate so much fall because of a cable or to find them like a mess so i´ve try to fix this problem and i am still looking for a better solution... so there is, if someone have an idea i would be glad to read something about.

Step 1: The problem...

Too much cables.

The metal clamp be over the outersheathing and certainly not over a bare conductor the a single sheathed one!!! Just a sparkies opinion!
<p>goofd Idea, but if you put a connector like this http://www.doitbest.com/Cord+sockets-Cooper+Wiring+Device-model-2867-BOX-doitbest-sku-512430.dib you can use any extension.</p>
<p>im looking for something that can fit exactly like a continuous line by using this but mono, so the extension between the plastic in the end of the drill, the plug and the power cable is like a contineus line looking clear and safe. </p>
<p>this is an extremely dangerous way to do it, should you accidentally tug on the cord while using the tool it could come unplugged, no big deal i spose, just plug it back in, BUT! what if this end came into contact with bare skin? instant electrocution. i would avoid using any style plug that does not insulate all metal contacts from the live end.</p>
The old toolbox is currently hidden somewhere at the back of a storagecontainer. So pictures are going to be difficult. There was a drill, soldering iron, dremel and something else in it. All was contained in a fancy box. About the connectors.. I dont remember. Only that they were integrated into the tool. But they did not strike me as very different.
Great Idea! I would just be sure to watch the amperage. Some hand power tools are rated to 20 amps, and that might make those cords a little warm!
Nice! But just fyi, you are not the first in this idea. Last year I bought an old toollbox with 4 powertools, including drill. Turns out to be from around 1965. Powercables and wallplugs were expensive components in that time. So you could reuse them on each tool. Different motivation, same idea. I wouldn't mind this as a standard for both motivations.
<p>oh nice! can you upload a picture? it would be so nice. ... are you talking about militar radio conector?</p>
<p>You can look for XLR power connectrors, these are like audio connectors</p>
<p>ive thogh that i coul useit but i didnt find someone tha can resist 15 amper </p>
