In this video Chris Duke shows how to motorize your Kessler Pocket Dolly by using a drill.

The Kessler Pocket Dolly v2.0 is a great slider, however when it comes to sliding by human hand, it is limited by the skills of the camera operator.

The “elektraDRIVE BUNDLE PACKAGE with ORACLE Controller” is a $1,314.95 add-on to their $649 slider making it a $2k package, and a whole lot of extra parts.

What if you could pull off the same motor slide effect with something you already have in your garage, using a variable speed drill–and saving $1,300!!

There are two methods:

1. From the bottom: use a 9/16 socket

2. From the top: use a sawed-off 3/16 hex key
