Iron or drill you need in one corner of the room, and the socket is in another. In this case you can use an extension cord. And for storage you can make a simple and practical device — a coil provided not only for coiling the cord, but to include electric instruments.
Reel for extension cord:
1 — the plywood panel, 2 — receptacle, 3 — cord, 4 — bushing, 5 — plug.
Between the two plywood panels with a thickness of 4-8 mm (see figure) reinforced a wooden or plastic sleeve, which can be wound up to 15 m twisted pair cable. More flap, having cut a handle is attached to the socket from which the cord through the grommet of the coil goes to the plug.
