Good item
Really like the handy handle, which makes for easy use. Highly recommend this item. The best part was that I was able to find it. Didn't have to order and wait for it to come in. Thank You Rockler.

Great Tool for Drilling Holes at Tough Places
I finally got around to using this tool that I ordered some time ago. I needed to drill a fee "weep" holes under the bottom of my stucco to allow moisture to get out. This was the ticket that allowed me to accomplish this task. I did have a problem finding an appropriate drill head but finally found one.

Looks are deceiving!
When I looked at the photo in the online catalog, I had no idea how SMALL the unit was! It is a little more than 2" front to back, a seriously compact tool. The detachable handle was not necessary for my function but could come in handy in other functions. I had to drive some small hinge screws into a solid oak faceframe. It took almost a half hour of screwing around in a 5" space with various screwdrivers to NOT get one screw in. I got the hinge plates with 2 screws each placed in less than 2 minutes with the angle driver. Gold plating it couldn't make it better!

Just what I needed
I have more than one right angle drill and right angle attachment. This one is the smallest. I was able to use the 1/4 inch drive socket to drive a 1/4 inch hex head screw in a very tight place. Nothing else would have worked. Very happy with this purchase.

Works great
Works great. Needed to drill through rafters to run new wire, but only had a six inch hole in which to work. Handled a 3/4 spade bit with ease.

When I got this, I thought it might be a little light to do the job, but I was wrong. Worked great.

Yes I would recommend this tool.

Angle drill
This tool is great. I used it to drive 256 pocket hole screws on the inside legs of 4 bar stools. The closeness of the legs (9") made it impossible to drive with a standard drill. This tool made it easy to do as the drill is in a vertical position when driving the screws.

can the handle be taken off?
Charlie on Dec 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be taken off. This is one great tool for working in tight places. I used it to drive 64 pocket hole screws in a 9" clearance when the Kreg bit and regular drill was too big.
Can you also use this for drilling holes?
mosaiq on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you'll need either a drill chuck with a 1/4" hex drive or bits with the same drive. Also available are "stubby" hex drive bits. Can be very handy in tight places.
Are the gears metal?
Herb V on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: the gears are not exposed, so you really can't tell.It's a pretty heavy little tool, for it's size, so Iwouldn't be surprised if they were.
Can anyone tell me the width of the head without any bit?
John D on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: About 2"
I need actual drill heads to make holes for this tool. Where can I buy them?
