Have wondered about this possibility. I've seen some 'As seen on TV' ads where they sell all-in-one DIY power-tool kits which can act as a drill (reversible), power screw in/unscrew, hammer, buffing, sanding and even cutting tool.
Are such attachments available for regular consumer-grade power drills, and are they effective, or even semi-effective (in the 'your mileage may vary' sense) ?
Note that this is only for some occasional use, by a DIY hobbyist. Not for professional grade work.
