Drill-Extension Rotary Pool Cleaner

Kris writes-

I made this during spring break in March but didn’t have time to upload the Videos and pictures of it until now. This is my “Drill-Extension Rotary Pool Cleaner”. 🙂 I made it using Channel and Bearing parts from ServoCity and shafting from McMaster-CARR as well as my trusty Milwaukee hand-drill. My goal was to come up with a way to clean the pool without killing my hands and arms as I have in years past without spending a trillion bucks.

The solution I came up with is a light-weight extension to a common hand-drill (and drill would do) and using a shoulder strap for ergonomics. I had some spare pistol-grips laying around that I wasn’t going to use, so I bolted 3 of them onto the Channel to create multiple holding options (3D printed handles would work even better!). This way I can brush the floor while standing upright, and yet brush the walls while holding the tool closer to me with a shoulder strap, all without generating nearly the fatigue that I have in the past using other methods.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
