    Hello,

    Does anybody have any recommendations for a 90 (or perhaps better, 45) degree converter for screwdriver bits? I need to put in a lot of screws and this would make life about a million times easier!

    Thanks for reading.

    Steve.

    If you have got loads to do at different angles why not get a bosch 10.8v angle drill. Use it and then ebay it.

    They are rubbish, I tried one of the better ones & it fell to pieces in no time at all, I think I got about 40 30mm screws out of it, they are also rubbish to work with, better to buy an angle gun.

    I find a flexi driver comes in handy for this kind of thing.

    If you're fixing at an angle it is difficult to put on a lot of pressure so I would suggest using a T star or Torx screw head with a flexible or 45 degree driver.

    These are good or you could find your own suppliers and sizes

    Hello again,

    Thanks for all the responses. I should have given more information. I will be using Spax screws. I've tried a flexible driver - Rubbish! I don't have a printed catalogue, so I don't know what's on page 78 - Is this it?:

    Thanks for the Milwaukee tip. Is this the thing?:
    http://www.amazon.com/Milwaukee-49-22-8510-Right-Angle-Attachment/dp/B000BYEJ02

    That certainly looks the business. I don't mind spending money on decent tools, if they will get me out of trouble.

    Thanks again.

    Steve.
