“Wow, that looks stupid. Who would use that thing? I’m never going to use this.” We said all those things at one point about the right angle attachment. Then we dug it out of the drawer about five times and had to eat our words. If you have a Dremel, get smart and buy in now — Utopia Tools has the Dremel 575 Right Angle Attachment for $16.99.
The right angle attachment, um…, attaches to your Dremel and provides a relatively compact 90-degree drive to the tool for getting into smaller spaces. The right angle drive doesn’t provide any speed reduction/torque increase, just a 1:1 drive at 90 degrees. It certainly means the body of the dremel can be held well away from the cut, when using smaller cutoff wheels and such.
