Yes, today we build a friction drive electric scooter that is powered by an 18 volt cordless drill!!
Personal Story: My parents wouldn't let me buy my own electric scooter, so I built one out of stuff we had around the house.
P.S. Keep Dad happy. Buy your own cheapo cordless drill at Harbor Freight and don't use his!!
Okay, onto the parts list.
> A cordless drill (the bigger the better)
>A simple push scooter
>A piece of stick-on velcro (you will use the scratchy side only. If you can get it use rubber tape.)
>A rectangular piece of wood or plastic (this will support the drill)
>A whole lot of zipties
>A bicycle hand brake and cable (for the throttle)
Here is a link to a video of the scooter in action.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGU0sXQlGlY&context=C3c53192ADOEgsToPDskJShJx5qy0SGTljaewFJPcT
