Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stubbornfaith Perfect for the job
While putting some cabinet doors on a different brand of already-installed cabinets, I had to drill new holes into the cabinet walls. All was fine until I came upon the very narrow cabinet that, try as I might, I could not shimmy my drill into.
I tried looking for a very short drill bit but could find nothing (and that would only have given me a very one-time solution in any case). I also tried looking at the flexible drill bits and chucks, but they were surprisingly pricey for the complete solution I needed (since the drill bit was fairly large and would not fit a standard hex).
Finally I happened on this Milescraft right angle attachment, and, admittedly was hesitant seeing how simple it was - must've been originally designed ages ago.. but in the interest of economy, I picked it up.
It easily handled the job and I was really impressed with how solid every component feels. The chuck is excellent and solid, the gears inside the right-angle are absolutely smooth and precise, and the hex fit into my drill and held the attachment extremely firmly.
The handle for the device goes in from either direction to allow for some flexibility and is extremely easy to install - and is also very solid construction. So glad I got this as it was an economical solution and now gives me a great deal of flexibility in the future.
Lastly, I thought this would be tough to manage given it's this pivoting tool on a powerful drill, but all of the connections are so firm the handle for the attachment served perfectly as the handle for my hammer drill would have functioned and it was very easy to control as a result.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Not bad for light use
Considering that this thing saves you $225 from buying another right angle drill, it's pretty good. But don't expect to drill a lot of large holes with it for a long time. Mine finally gave out as I was drilling studs with my 7/8 auger bit. It worked well for a while; I'll probably buy another because I just don't need this enough to justify buying a whole new drill.

The bit tightening tool doesn't fit the chuck snugly. There is a lot of play and that makes it hard to tighten the bit to hold in place while drilling.

This allowed me to get into a tight place. It did exactly what I needed it to do. No the highest quality, but it worked for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bodyman Good tool. Great price.
I was in need for a right angle dril to make some holes in between studs to pull Romex wire after installing some outlets and lights in my garage. I couldn't justify spending $150 for a good quality rt angle drill. I was hesitant to try it because years ago I purchased one and it didnt work that well. This one is much better made. The gears are steel as opposed to plastic. It did the job! Drilled 1/2" holes effortlessly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TomTom Very handy product!
The price is great, the 3/8 chuck is solid, the variety of ways to grip the thing is really swell. Took me a bit to decide on the best way to manage it. I did not have a drill small enough to install mounting screws on some sliding cabinet shelves; this did it wonderfully. Some reviewers have said this item should only be used on quite light jobs, not perhaps for many large holes in lumber. Might be right, but it sure saved my job. The red handle goes either side, and seems quite sturdy.
