Meet the man who built a drill powered by a nitro V8 engine

How it all started

You might be curious about how someone decides to make a drill that runs on a nitro V8 engine. Well, you’re not the only one.

Here is the full video.

But that’s exactly what this man has done.

He has created something that is both absurd and awesome, and he put a lot of effort into making it. The amazing nitro V8 engine drill was invented by YouTuber Tim Welds.

Tim is a mechanical and welding engineer by profession, but his Instagram bio says he “likes tools and makes things”.

Tim admits that this is probably the craziest thing he has ever made. The drill with a V8 engine is not like the ones you see in cars, though.

What makes it special

It’s actually a miniature V8 engine with overhead camshafts, a complete valve train, and two carburettors on top. It also has all the extra features, like a radiator and modules to run the glow plugs that ignite the nitromethane.

Tim said it was not easy to get the nitro V8 engine drill working, but once he did, he said it was incredible.

He was not the only one who was impressed by the strange creation, either.

People rushed to the comments section to share their opinions on his invention.

“This is the most impractical, ridiculous tool I’ve ever seen… where can I get one?,”

One user wrote.

“It’s totally ridiculous. I want one”.

Another wrote

“The only thing that would make that more American is if there was a beer holder on the side. Hell yeah brother!”,

Said another.

What others think

But not everyone was happy with the backyard inventor’s work, some were more skeptical.

“I hope the drill doesn’t get stuck. It’s going to rip his hand off,”

One user wrote.

“Cool, I always wanted a handheld explosive drill,”

Another user wrote.

You can’t make everyone happy, Tim.


Tim Welds has created a unique and fascinating drill that is powered by a nitro V8 engine.

He has shown his creativity and skill in making something that is both ridiculous and awesome.

He has also attracted a lot of attention and feedback from his viewers, both positive and negative.

Whether you think his drill is cool or crazy, you have to admit that it’s something you don’t see every day.
