Great minds think alike.

Among the exhibit vendors here are alot of "mom and pop" companies that have had a good idea, they come here to try and sell it. These folks have created a dolly to help move around your airplane on the ramp. What caught my attention is that they're using an off-the-shelf cordless hand drill to power it.

The drill is attached to a drive shaft that drives the wheels and is clamped in near the handle.

What caught my attention is we've done a similar thing at the lake, using a power drill to crank and anchor winch.
