Drilling in the Dark
By: Joe Truini
It’s often dark and hard to see when you’re drilling a hole or screwing in a screw under a cabinet or in a closet. A simple solution that works great is to use rubber bands to strap a small flashlight to the top of your drill.
Slide a rubber band around each end of the barrel of the drill and slip the flashlight under it. Position the flashlight far enough back so it doesn’t interfere with the chuck, and adjust the beam for best visibility. Rubber bands make it easy to reposition the flashlight and remove it when you’re through. Now you’ll never be in the dark again when working in tight quarters.
