Most things I can use a drill, and I have my own...it is a tad heavy, but gets it done really well.
I get upset when the thread on the screw becomes non-existent, so have taken to buying very good screws.
My boys taught me how to hold the drill straight, as that is all important.
No. You need two eyes to drill a hole straight and not break the drill bit. When I left home, my father gave me some of his old tools, including a hand drill. I used it, but broke drill bits, and realised I'd come up against a genuine limitation of my disability. I do other handyperson stuff though.
I can use most tools, although I don't like the loudness of power saws and the like. I prefer to do it myself. It gets done when I want it done, and it gets done properly. My husband literally can NOT hang a picture straight, although he is mighty good when holding heavy objects or steadying me on a high ladder! I grew up in a family that renovated, I have a head for the practical stuff, and I went to a Technical school after Primary, so I suppose it came easier to me. (Hubby is an engineer - he knows it all on paper - but I had to teach him how to hold a hammer.).
Yes, my Father taught me much, including car tyre changing, house roof painting, odd job requirements around house, using tools of various descriptions. My Mother's father also taught me, as well.
They were men with huge amounts of common sense, were ahead of their 'time' in the belief that a girl can learn all those things, as well as a boy!
My knowledge of this has helped me through life in many a way!
I was indeed fortunate!
As a tradie 4 30 years I can say happily I can
I needed to use one recently 10 years had slipped by I wondered ... could I still do it
With a cautious but confident start on the lowest of speeds I pulled it off
