You don't say. In what application? Is that simple enough for you?


I don't understand your confusion but try typing "Right angle drill adaptor" into Youtube and you can see some in use.

I got them @ £1.50 about 10 days ago, I can now do the proper drilling I have always been dreaming of

I use when making furniture but Im sure there will be a few others that can help.

Seriously, you can not even imagine a situation where access is a bit tight?
I suspect this tool and DIY in general may not be for you

Try fixing kitchen cabinets together, screwing pipe fixings under floorboards, access holes in wall battens or running wiring basically anywhere

It lets you drill holes for right-angle screws.

e.g. drilling holes in kitchen cabinets for shelf pegs when you've established that the existing pre-drilled holes are in the wrong place.

thought of a few since deal posted, not enough for me to buy one though. I looked at others and they are smaller (also a bit more expensive) so might be a better buy if you acctually need one.
Good luck with that lamo.

That job can done with a regular drill can it not?
I needed one of these a month ago. Ended up paying £8 or something from amazon.

Depends on the cupboard width, if it's on the wall, if the door is fitted, etc

So yes, you can use a regular drill once you've taken it off the wall, dismantled the carcass, etc For the sake of £1.50 I know what I'd try first.

Yeah I guess so. I was thinking of regular sizes. I do a hell a lot of DIY, building and making things with different materials etc and have never needed one yet, must have been lucky. Think ill hold off until that day comes.
One of the main reasons you need one of these is that the screw is too close to an immovable object and the drill itself is too fat/bulky. This is equally fat/bulky.

Yep, and that's the best way to describe the use of this item. It makes a lot more sense than just saying "to drill at right angles".
For stealth drilling round corners ?

It's a bit like stubby screwdrivers or flexible screwdriver shafts - of very limited usefulness, don't forget to factor in the length of the drill bit on this

I have the superb Dewalt Dwar100, more useful for attaching/removing awkward screws/bolts with short driver bits on cars etc
perfect for one or two uses then the internal gearing sheds all the teeth
I've already got one like this, but I think I prefer the Parkside one from Lidl as it seems to be more compact where the drill bit goes in (try drilling through standard spaced floor joists with this type and you'll know what I mean)....

do you have a link to a Dewalt one which is available to buy at the moment for £1.50?

No but we could draw your attention to the purpose of the site. To share information and deals.
Not sure how you fare on the former but the later is lacking. Out of respect for other site users, please keep your wide comments to yourself unless you are doing so from a sound foundation.
That's great, heat added
Good price, but what an awful website! Anybody else using IOS and unable to use the ‘check local stores’ option?
I have one from lidl but it's too bulky to be useful. Ended up spending 45 pounds on a milwaukee version. Worth the money for reaching screws behind fitted units and whatnot

Cor. You're hard work aren't you. You asked a question it got answered and you're still here moaning. It's 1.50 ffs. You don't have to buy it. There's clearly use cases for it. Jesus Christ

Just thought there would be someone that knew lots of uses for it so i could go "oh, yeah, of course". I wasn't trying to moan was just wanting peoples opinion on specific uses for it. Jesus Christ does not help in this or any other situation as he is a fictional character, so I don't understand why you're trying to bring him into this.
