This is actually true and happened at a previous workplace.
An electrician was drilling a 1/4Hole througha 1/8" steel wall to mount a cable tray or something.
All was going well until BOOM - FLASH suddenly a ragged 1" charred hole appeared, he had neglected to check on the position of the 415v 3ph feeder on the other side, fortunately the worker was not permanently injured.
Actually my favorite hole making tool is a (hand-held) plasma cutter, you can carve any shaped hole including slots, curved holes , half holes, and also cut through welds without damaging the metal on either side. Pity it only cuts metal (and strategically misplaced leather gloves and thumbnails...ouch).
I spent some time this past weekend at my local Ace and Lowe's hardware. If you're looking for a drill Made In USA, you're out of luck. If you're looking for one not made in China, there are some options.
At Ace, I found a large Milwaukee made in the Czech republic, and some other drills (DeWalt IIRC) made in Mexico.
At Lowe's, I found a large, expensive ($400) Bosch made in Germany (interestingly, a much more affordable Bosch jig saw was made in Switzerland). A lot of the DeWalts were made in Mexico, and IIRC, another Bosch was made in Malaysia.
As far as the coordless drills go, some of the DeWalts were made in Mexico.
@DavidAston Though he wasn't screwing around, the result was more like the show Jack***. No videos, unfortunately. Here's an even better story: A friend of mine was at a gym and saw a runner fly off the back of a treadmill. The friend went over to turn off the treadmill and stepped onto the belt to do so. Guess what? Now a pile of guys at the back of the treadmill!
There is a Candian humourist who writes about the misadventures of a Canadian family. Father of the family is named Dave, and there was a really funny story about Dave and a treadmill. You can read the story here, or listen to it somewhere on this podcast. You may have trouble downloading it, maybe for copyright reasons. I am currently in Eurpoe and am having trouble downloading it to narrow down where the story starts. I do find it funnier hearing it, rather than reading it.
@davidashton LOL! My sister has a hole in her wall faintly resembling a foot where her husband kicked through the wall after flying off the back of a treadmill. Fortunately he wasn't hurt, except for his wounded pride!
