There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Common practice by Taiwanese tool and electronics companies back in the day.

i.e., Porto-Power was trademarked so the Taiwanese invented the term Porta-Power for their products. I bought a radio one time and thought I had purchased a Panasonic, but in reality I purchased a Pansanonic = True story!!

"Pansanonic"  That's awesome.

I bought a drain snake at the dollar store once because the name on the package was "Brain cleaner".  I still have it around here somewhere.
I threaten the wife with it now and then just to keep her in line.  "you better not make me get out the brain cleaner"!
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

If one has to do a lot of broken fastener extraction that could actually be an advantage...

Nah, just get a reversible motor.

Depends on how it's tensioned.  If there's an idler pulley then it wouldn't function right in reverse.  Could also be a problem with the chuck spinning off of the spindle.
