making a manual drill

Electronic drills and electronic screwdrivers are so inexpensive now days, they have practically driven the manual drills out of the market. The last time I went out to look for one, I was disappointed find that the old-fashion hand-cranked drills are no longer available. So why not just use an electric drill? I will reveal this answer and provide some concepts to jury-rig your own manual drill in a few days.

So here it is . . . a manual drill composed of:


  • a �� ratchet
  • a �� socket
  • a drill bit made for electronic screwdrivers

I put this together when I was rebuilding my PCGA-BP52 notebook battery pack. The battery pack had temper-proof screws that I managed to remove. I had to re-tap the screw holes for a set of bigger, non-temper-proof, screws. An electronic screwdriver might apply too much torque at the wrong time and crack the plastic thread. A manual drill that provides feedback to our sensitive fingertips is best in this case.
