"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."
"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."
"just ordered my 2nd one as had abused first one .. managed over 50 24mm holes with spade cutter in very hard seasoned 2 1/2" elm.. not surpised it broke as was using brute force, unlike other reviewers the chuck retainer broke on mine.. just wish were cheaper..."
"I needed a right-angle drill for a job in a very confined space. A proper drill was too expensive for this job so an attachment seemed a better choice. I had to return two of these attachments before I got one that worked. (The problem was that the clutch would not grip the drill bit). Having got one that worked I found it eventually could do the job. It was not capable of running at a high speed though and needed to be steadied with one hand as it had a tendency to spin round if not firmly held. Would recommend only in an emergency."
"Thought it would be a cheaper option to an agled drill, but for the job I had in mind for it you needed three hands, one for the drill, one to stop the attachement flopping about and another to hold what I was working on. In the end I finished up purchasing a proper angled drill."
"Returned 2 of these due to internal gear mechanism failure after only drilling several 15mm holes between joists. It is a cheap alternative to stand-alone tool, but only suitable for very very light and occasional use and be prepared for sudden failure."
"Had several of these for drilling between joists with a 19mm flat blade to wire a house, I wore out 4 of them. Very good dea but is not heavy duty. If you are going to do a lot of heavy duty work like drilling with flatblades or high torque screwing then get a right angled drill, it will be cheaper in the end."
"Rubbish for any real work. I didn't want to spend £150 for a right angled drill/driver so I opted for this chuck to use with my standard drill. I managed to make 6 holes into tight joists before the chuck failed. Don't buy if you have any real holes to make."
"After reading reviews which were mixed, we decided to purchase this item. Unfortunately we now have to add another bad review. It lasted 10 mins. On returning it to Screwfix for a refund was told it was the second one returned in two days.
But thank you Screwfix for dealing with the problem promptly"
"After trying to use this chuck for its purpose (drilling through joists where there is limited space) I can safely say this is about as useful as a chocolate teapot. I was incredibly careful with it (even setting my drill onto a driving with clutch mode instead of drilling mode) and still the internals of this chuck slipped. I was unable to even go through one joist. A complete waste of time and effort, do not waste your money on this."
