P18482: Manual Rock Drill
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

An impact drill is an essential tool for creating foot bridges in rural communities. They are used for drilling into existing rock foundations to allow for the grouting of rebar. Current rock drills on the market today are electric, pneumatic or gas powered which require specific sources of energy which are not readily available in these environments.

The goals of this project are to inspect current designs of rock drills and take a manually powered drill from concept to prototype. This design will be extremely portable, weighing less than 50 lbs per component, low maintenance, reliable, and rugged. Instructions and design documentation will be provided.
