    that's pretty much the kind of drill those guys used to escape from alcatraz. except they used a vacuum motor, i think.

    it helped get them out. whether they made it from the island to the coast alive is something that's still debated. there's a movie with clint eastwood about it called "escape from alcatraz".

    I hope you will also show how to mount a drill bit on that. As far as I see, this would be the hardest part in this project

    Could you explain that in more detail? Perhaps you could make a video of how to attach the drill bits or include more photos in this instructable?
