Few tools are as versatile as the cordless rotary tool. Dremel-wielding hobbyists have been sanding, and routing, cutting and polishing their way through projects large and small for decades.

But you know what is better than batteries? Nitro. And YouTuber johnnyq90 is here to prove it with the custom-built rotary tool powered by the nitro-burning piston engine from the R/C car.

This 20-minute clip details the entire construction of this nitro-burning supertool, though this project was not without challenges.

Johnnyq90 machines nearly every component from scratch, and using precise measurements and the lathe. It takes multiple attempts, with three different nitro-burning R/C engines, and to make the functional final result.

But the ultimate product is hilariously badass. It is equal parts weed-whacker, chainsaw, and Dremel, with enough hp to do the job of the battery-operated mainstream tool, and with way more flair.

This isn’t a first time johnnyq90 has built the nitro-powered tool—this YouTube channel is dedicated to scratch-built turbine motors, and there is s even the nitro-powered cordless drill in the mix too.

While this full start-to-finish construction video runs the lengthy 20 minutes, you won’t miss out on anything if you watch it at 2x speed.

Maybe it will inspire you to embark on your own nitro-fueled projects. Hey, technically speaking, it is still cordless.
