    Try to find an old drill with a hand crank and soon you will be successful and can move on to an electric drill. It's all about trying new things and progressing.

    Absolutely!! You could also You Tube "how to" on using a drill. Oh, check Home Depot. They have Lady workshops once a month I believe. Good Luck.

    At 65 you can learn to do anything. There's a lot of life left, so get out there and drill baby drill

    I'm also 64 and use my drills several times a week. Drills are simpler than power saws. I took a beginners woodworking class at the local vocational school (continuing education for adults) a few years ago to learn how to (not be afraid to) use a table saw. Good luck and be safe!

    I am still doing most of the fixits around my house. I just replaced the toilet Fill valve. I also made my raised garden bed, flower boxes and potting table for the shed. I'll be 80 this fall. Never tell me I can't do it.

    I love it....Ms. Patricia and Ms. June....you are my hero! I hope when I'm 65/80, if I make it that long, I too can do these type things for myself. To heck with a Mr. FixIt.....I'm Miss. I Can Do It..... (Hope to purchase myself a camper and travel once I get to retire....)
