Intro: POWER DRILL HOLSTER FROM LAUNDRY JUG

I use my power drill quite a bit and like to have it handy when I need it.  So I came up with this idea and it costs nothing to make.  All you need is a empty laundry detergent jug, a knife and a couple of screws.

iNSTRUCTIONS:


Take the laundry detergent jug, and there are various sizes to choose from, depending on the size of your drill.  You simply cut the top off of the jug as illustrated.  You then cut out a notch, opposite of the jug handle and you are done.  You can now mount this on, under or on the side of your work bench.  You drill is always ready to go.  You could also cut out two slots in the jug and slip your belt through it and you have a carry around holster.  Enjoy this simple project and if you have any questions, please email me.  Thanks for  looking.

    I like it! Now you have me thinking to make a row for a bunch of drills I could pass a piece of pipe through the handle openings. I'm not crazy about how I have my drills now.

    I can't even get most I have in that arrangement.

    That ain't the half of them. Someday when I feel motivated I'll have to try to take a group shot of all my drills. Too hot today! Now that I'm sitting here I really want that picture though.

    Maybe I missed some but this is what I found:

    This picture I just took is only my corded drills. I have cordless, and even a couple pneumatic powered drills too. The air drills come in handy when I work on my pool. I've even run them underwater. So no, I don't think my tool collecting fetish is unreasonable! heh

    HI, thanks for commenting and looking. As for a cable holder, I don't use one for my application as I keep the drill plugged in, but I suppose you could stuff the cord into the jug and put the drill on top of it. I am sure someone will come up with a cord holder on this site. Thanks again.
