My daughters and I took this drill apart to see how it works. The girls loved the activity.
We had some trouble getting the chuck off, but overall it was a great way to spend an hour on Saturday. I was just going to throw away the drill, but I think the motor and gearbox may come in handy for a future project.
I like the idea of reverse making. This is an activity well-suited for younger kids. I plan to hit the garage sales this summer looking for things we can take apart and recycle or reuse for parts. Maybe we will build a robot!
