"Needed to drive half a dozen self tappers in a tight space. For the money this device was perfect. I read the reviews and was surprised at some of the poor comments and what was expected from this little device. If you are going to do heavy, accurate and frequent work then invest £100 plus in a proper angled drill. I needed this on a Sunday afternoon and Screwfix less than 1 mile away had 4 in stock."
"After reading many bad reviews about this product I was highly suspicious and almost expected it to fail.... However it did exactly what it said and solved my problem which was boring 12mm holes for sistering joists in a confined space.
I was on the point of spending £150 on a dedicated tool but knowing I only had a few holes to do I was loathed to spend the money on anything else.
It's not heavy duty you can tell that but once mated up to my 18v drill it was a champ. Obviously getting any decent leverage behind the drill bit ideally requires 3 hands so get some help, when used at a sensible speed setting with sharp drill bits it could dig you out of a big hole for very little money.
If I were a sparky, plumber or chippy doing this every day I would certainly invest in the Right Angled Drill, however if like me you have a light duty but equally as awkward task then I have no hesitation in recommending this adapter and hopefully help balance the reviews here on this item."
"Great for drilling holes through joists and also for driving screws in awkward positions. A little expensive but a lot cheaper than buying a dedicated angle drill. I haven't used it enough yet to determine how robust it really is but it feels pretty solid."
"I can't remember how long I've had one of these in my drill box but it has to be over 10 years. It has helped me many times to complete jobs where my drill wouldn't fit. Finally started slipping (gears worn out) after some heavy work drilling through a load of flooring joists with a spade bit so had to keep the pressure on to cut through. No hesitation (after looking for any better solutions) in calling at Screwfix for a replacement and changing to a wood beaver bit to ease the pressure needed or drilling. Nice to see that the good design hasn't changed over the years."
"Although a well experienced DIY'er I have never been able to justify a dedicated right angled drill. Having needed to get into a very tricky spot to drill I tried this and it performed extremely well. Probably haven't used it often enough to be too sure of durability."
"This tool allowed me to drill a hole that would not have been possible without the tool or a dedicated angled drill which are much more expensive. It appears to be well made and for the price paid it was the best solution for me. I will only make occasional use of this tool so not too worried about long term reliability."
"I nearly didnt buy this after reading the previous reviews but time constraints to finishing the job forced me into it. On balance I am glad I bought it, I had previously melted the plastic case on my old right angle adaptor (not a screwfix item). This one was solid with a metal casing which didnt overheat during use. I was drilling galvanised steel with HS bits so it was being pushed a bit. Compared to my old one this is great value"
"A lovely sized item which easily deals with those awkward and hard to reach areas. For fairly lightweight jobs, this will last for many trouble-free years. The only criticism I have is that there is no handle to allow one to hold it in place effectively. The cheaper 'angle-drill' has one, but it is not at 90 degrees and is much smaller. A shame on both accounts."
