Cool Drill Attachment

by dennis at 1:32 pm in Tools

While on another visit to Lowe’s, I found this cool new right angle drill attachment only it doesn’t just do right angles, you can set almost any angle, plus the handle position can be set independently.

It’ll make a heck of a back scratcher! Don’t try this at home.

This week’s eBay search is for Corn Cob Pipes. Maybe you need one for a Halloween costume - maybe for everyday use! I won’t tell.

While you’re enjoying your pipe, you can watch the birds and squirrels at your Iowa Corn Feeder.

The Consuminator’s eBay Search of the Week is just for fun. Search subjects are chosen by whim. Sometimes they turn up something interesting or useful.
