Questions & Answers

does it have a handle so that i can apply pressure in the direction of the screw?

Asked by: Kyle
As there is no handle on it, you need to get your hand on the back of the unit to stabilize it, especially if you are using a spade bit with a threaded tip in a constricted area - it can twist the drill right out of your grip. I found I had more control when using this when I attached the accessory handle to my drill. I could see, however, jerry-rigging a handle for this unit to make it even more stable.

Is the 90 degree attachment heavy duty enough to hold up to drilling multiple 3/4 inch holes through 2x4s?

Asked by: John
ABSOLUTELY! I just did it to run some low voltage wiring from my basement up into the walls above. I had to get deep into the rim joist to drill through the subfloor so that it would get into the wall above. I used the 3/4" bit from these stubby bits: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Bosch-Daredevil-Stubby-Length-Spade-Bit-Set-3-Piece-DSBS5003/203274579 This thing was worth its weight in gold.

Can we use this with 1/2 inch drill bit

Asked by: SR
only if the bit has the adapter end on it for 1/4 inch. I would not use it with that large a bit. Probably not designed for that amount of torque.

Does this adapter accept nut drivers as well as screw tips?

Asked by: Mike
It will accept any bit with a hex shank, so if your nut driver has a hex shank it will work.

Right Angle Drill Adapter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 322.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ok but it's difficult for higher torque situations and... Works ok but it's difficult for higher torque situations and needs a secondary handle so it doesn't rotate while holding and thus lose straight contact with a screw.

The DeWalt version of a right angle drill adapter is really a right angle 1/4" hex adapter. This is more useful for hard to reach screws and nuts using short hex bits than as a right angle drill, since there is no drill chuck in the adapter. Here are some of our pros and cons: Pros: + sturdier than it's plastic exterior looks! The most popular competitor APPEARS well made all metal, but is far less rugged than this DeWalt model + Excellent accessory for battery powered nut driver + full 90degree angle Cons: - wish there was a Quick Change hex socket, the driving shaft is equipped with a Quick Change cutout - needs a simple eject assist, as many smaller bits are difficult to remove if you are wearing gloves - needs a mini-hex to 1/4 hex adapter

I also have a tendency to sometimes work my tools beyond their designed intent, and a previous angle adapter ( not Dewalt ), stripped its gearbox under what I feel was fairly light pressure using a 3/4" spade bit. So far so good with my Dewalt adapter. Not expected to do the work of an actual Angle Drill, but seems like it will perform well and repeatedly when I need to get out of the next tight spot, and the one after that. Time will tell.

It would benefit greatly from a detachable side handle that could go on either side. I realize that in some applications there would be no room for a side handle hence, the detachable request. For my project I had plenty of side to side clearance needed this tool due to low overhead clearance. I did get all my screws driven with perseverance and replacing a few stripped out screw.

I needed a right angle drill to run power and a new breaker box in my detached garage. I saw this online and went to the store to check it out. It looked a little small and light for the all the 3/4" holes I had to bore, but I gave it a spin anyway. Boy, was I surprised at the great job it did! Between it and the Bosch spade bit it made short work of the 30-40 holes I had to bore! I used my Dewalt 1/4" impact driver and it worked perfectly! I can highly recommend this drill adapter.

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is you can not use conventional drill bits or 2 sided screwdriver bits. It only takes a 1/4 in shank - like what is on the end of the adapter that connects to your drill. So, if you need to drill a pilot hole or something else, you have to make sure you have a drill bit with a 1/4 shank that will lock in to the adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for close-quarters work I needed to drill a hole for a ground-screw on the steering rack on my VW Scirocco restoration project. I tried drilling with another right-angle adapter, but the gearing on it didn't hold up. This DeWalt adapter was a good price and really solid, allowing me to complete the task in a couple of minutes. I've since used it for under-dash and in-door work and it's held up perfectly.
