Why does my right angle attachment say to use with impact driver only?

Asked by Darrel April 5, 2021

Answers

I've had mine for years and the packaging is long gone. There isn't anything about it that requires an impact driver. Since most 1/4" powered drivers are Impact Drivers, I'm guessing they're using the term generically. In fact, any impact action will likely cause problems, as it will be directed 90 degrees away from where you're driving.

I have a small bit in the adapter but am now unable to remove it. Is there a quick release trick?

Can the adapter be set to not swivel?

Not that I'm aware of. You'd need a physical connection between the adapter and your driver. Maybe Duct Tape???

Will this operate a 1/4 inch masonry bit and drill thru brick or mortar?

While there is nothing on it that says you can, I would use mine for it with no question. You can use your impact with it, or use it with a drill. If you have one of those drills that has a rotary hammer function, you would lose that function when using this, since that function uses a forward impact. However, this right angle tool is made for use with impact drivers and I think it would hold up ok drilling brick or blocks. It is very heavy for its size and made very well. I love mine. Also, the masonry bit would need a 1/4" hex shaft to work with this tool.

Can it be used with dewalt impact driver?

I'm sure it will attach, but the 'impact' part won't transfer well to the right angle tip. If you're just wanting to drive something, it should work.

Is there a long flexible extension made by DeWalt to go between impact driver and right angle adapter?

Asked by Needyman August 5, 2018

Answers

there are multiple extensions available.from almost all of the major manufactures. even swivels, but if your going from drill to adapter you,ll need 1/4" male hex on one end and a 1/4" female on the other. .It all just depends on what your trying to accomplish. Good luck

Easy to use - fits in tight spaces
I need to drill a 11/32" hole in a cabinet wall where the interior space was only 6 inches across. I purchased a 11/32" stubby drill bit with a 1/4" hex shank from Bruce Bauer Lumber and the DeWalt angle drill adapter. The DeWalt angle drill adapter transmitted the rotational energy from my electric drill around the 90 degree angle and provided smooth surface-normal drilling inside the tight confines of the cabinet. No problems at all. I read the review that says it doesn't work because you need 3 hands to operate it, I found that not to be true and it worked well using my left and right hands. The unit has a quality feel, the bearings give smooth and controlled motion. I recommend this product (DeWalt DWARA60) highly.

Put a small tool cabinet together recently and also used it to access headboard screws on a waterbed that was too close to a wall. Easy to use especially for an ''older lady'' who does a lot of small projects around the house!

This was very helpful at getting a bit into tight spaces for pocket hole screws, but I'm not sure mine was of the best quality. Each time I changed bits, it would come out with grease on it. I've only had it for a few weeks, and I used it with a DeWalt 1/4in. Impact Driver. It got the job done, but I don't know how many more jobs it has before it permanently fails.

A must have if your a professional!
I have bought 5 of these DWARA50's, gave 2 to a friends and brother. Very sturdy and holds up well with impact! I had gone through 3 Milwaukee's right angle attachments, they will NOT hold up under impact. They do take a finesse to handle, but can get into a lot of tight areas that an angle drill could not (Ref: one reviewer). I have used this so many times and would not be without one EVER! I just bought 2, one for a backup and one for the house. It's not as hard to use as another reviewer states and I use in all aspects of work (construction, electrical, plumbing and automotive).

Great product to help you get into those hard to reach spots. It can literally fit into a 2” spot. Use with your impact driver to make quick work of screws or bolts/nuts in tight spaces.

cheap alternative to purchasing a cordless angle drill. However if you need it for a lot of drilling, invest in an angle drill. Painful to use, you really need 3 hands to make it work. It should have a lock so when you attach it to your drill, the unit itself won't rotate, just the attachment your using to drive your screws. You have to use magnetized hex head screws or they will fly all over the room before you break the surface your drilling. Don't even try to use Phillips or slotted screws. I used it for a small window treatment job were I only had 5.5" of vertical clearance, 20 screws with 10 brackets, ended up cutting screws down to 10, one for each bracket because it was taking all day.

One of the most useful tools we have. We have sign trucks a crane and and have one in each truck. When we're working on stadium lighting 100 feet in the air this tool works and we haven't broke the first one yet. It's tough.
