My name is Trond Nyland, and I’ve had to rely on my power tools for years.
Specifically, my drills. When you augment your drills, there’s virtually nothing you can’t do with it, and that’s come in handy across my career and personal hobbies.
I started woodworking in high school, and since my father was a carpenter, it was something I was already pretty familiar with.
It didn’t take long for me to develop an interest into a passion, and from there, I started helping my father out with weekend reno projects he did on the side.
He would hire a few of his usually nine-to-five crew on these projects, and I noticed that the one tool of their that would give out, without fail, was their electric drill.
I’m very particular about my tools. Chief among them, my drills. I consider a drill to be the most versatile tool in your arsenal when it comes to demo, reno, and in-home repairs on your Sunday morning chore list.
I know more about the inner workings of drills than any other power tool, from power draw to motor strength, the odd uses you didn’t know for your drill to augmentations to get the most out of them (like mixing cement with an auger).
It’s what I know, it’s what I’m good at, and together, we’re going to help you make a good decision for your next drill, as well as how to maintain it through every single use.
