---- DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --------- PURPOSE: To create a do-it-yourself drill guide for an individual with low-vision. The DIY drill guide is created using an empty spool of thread or a sewing machine bobbin. First mark the spot to be drilled by making a "start hole" with an awl, nail, or ice pick. Next place the drill bit through the spool or bobbin and align the point of the bit with the start hole. With the drill in the "off" position, place the flat end of the spool or bobbin firmly against the surface and hold it in place with pliers. Note: Do not use your hands to hold the spool in place. With the drill and spool in this position, start the drill – and your hole will be straight/perpendicular with the surface. MATERIALS: Empty spool of thread or sewing machine bobbin, pick like object (i.e. nail, ice pick). TOOLS: Drill, drill bit, pliers. TITLE: If I can't see, how can I use power tools?
