I could put my Dewalt drill on that and grind those spices in no time flat. Number 20 torque setting should do it.

Well I have used the wifes hair dryer to dry the water out of the outside electrical sockets after a hard wind driven rain. And yes they have covers, But an east wind still trips the GFI.

I have an industrial hair dryer. It's called a paint stripper.
