post-radattach.jpgSometimes it’s difficult to get your full-size cordless drill into tight spaces, but it’s a lot easier if you have a right angle attachment handy.  This particular one comes from Milwaukee and can handle up to 235 in-lbs. of torque. 

The Milwaukee RAD attachment (as they call it, model 49-22-8510) accepts 1/4″ hex drive accessories (like screwdriver bits, hex drive bits, drill bits, flat boring bits, etc.) and fits any 1/4″ or larger chuck.  Milwaukee says it’s ideal for any 2.4V or larger cordless drill.   

235 in-lbs. of torque is generally more than enough for most household tasks, but beware that a number of 1/2″ chuck 18+V drills can deliver twice this much torque.  Be careful!

Anyway, this is a truly useful accessory to have, and pricing starts around $45 on the street.

    I remember my grandfather making me use those awful old right angle attachments on those equally awful on or off black and decker drills that you plugged in from the 80s and earlier. I had to drill like 5 dozen pilot holes in the deck stairs in a tiny area I was chosen because I was the smallest person to get in the hole to do the job and I was only 10. I cried the entire time it took me days because it kept catching it had no clutch.
