    The thread below about Jackyl brought to mind this question. Jackyl played with a chainsaw. Mr. Big used a Makita drill. What other "Home Depot" style "musical" instruments have been used by bands in recent memory?

    Umm, I think Eddie Van Halen pulled off that electric drill stunt. My rock band's current lead guitarist does it with a battery-operated toy drill. :-D

    I seem to recall a feature in Bass Player not too long ago about That Guy, a one-man-band bassist, who made his axe out of a steel pipe or PVC pipe. Other then that...think I'll stick with my fingures.
