I just drilled a hole in the corner of the lid and stick
the arm of the chuck key in it. I don't keep a stock of
magnets handy (apparently in that regard I'm old-fashioned,
judging by the number of shop tips I see that involve using

I have a similar 25 year-old (sentimental) Skil corded hammer drill but
mine has the "cool rubber grommet thing" on the cord. It is positioned
far enough down the cord that I don't have to remove the key from the
grommet on the rare occasions that I use the drill.
On the other hand, I bought a throw away hammer drill from HF when I was
out of town and needed a hammer drill at Dad's house. It has the grommet, but
it's right up near the drill, so you have to remove the key and then remember
to put it back. All they had to do was position it lower on the cord like
the Skil drill and it would have been much better.
You can see the grommet at the base of the handle here:
BTW...I haven't thrown the drill away yet. ;-) I use for my Kreg Pocket Screw
jig. It as much more power than either of my cordless drills (or the Skil) so I get cleaner holes.
found an episode and it was pretty bad
felt queasy watching it
i guess the female cohost was his wife

this is all forced upon him by the network lawyers
have known some youtube hosts that posted videos and immediately they
were inundated with emails and posts telling them how unsafe everything
was that they were doing
the hosts probably had more experience than all the viewers combined
hosts were somewhat shocked at how venomous the posts and emails
roger on the hand tools that is my bane for small nicks and cuts
There have been some big lawsuits from ladder accidents. Yes, there are
some idiots using them. Had a guy at work have two accidents before I
banned him from ever using one. In once case, he used a section of an
extension ladder upside down and wondered why it slipped on him.
