Cord in a Bucket
If I need electricity for my portable power tools, and the nearest outlet is only visible with binoculars, I reach for my extension cord bucket. It’s simply a 5-gallon bucket with a 2-in. hole that I cut in the side near the bottom. I keep a long, heavy-duty extension cord loosely coiled inside with the male end sticking out of the hole a couple of feet, just enough to reach an outlet. After plugging the male end of the cord into a GFCI-protected receptacle, I grab the female end and start walking. No kinks and no tangles. Works great! Unravel the entire cord if you’re running high amperage tools for a long period of time. If you don’t, the cord could heat up, which poses a potential fire hazard.
