Power drills make holes. Yeah, we got that. But let’s move beyond that notion to see what else our drills are capable of. With a huge array of attachments and other drill accessories on the market, it’s definitely possible turn your drill into a multi-functional device. See what’s out there and what could be useful for you!
$27.99 — Klutch 3/8in. Angle Drill Attachment
Not everyone has a stand-alone right-angle drill, so there’s something that we’ll need for those every-so-often tasks. The Klutch Angle Drill Attachment fits any 3/8-inch electric or air drill and is great for getting into tight spaces. Designed for use with drill bits, wire brushes, polishers, and grinding discs.
- Ideal for drilling cable pathways between studs and joists
- Lightweight and compact design
- Ball bearing shaft support
The happy reviewer: This right angle drill attachment is sturdy enough to drill through a 2X4 stud with a hole saw when running wires in the wall. The keyless chuck is also well constructed and handy. A nice additiion to your tool box.
$9.40 — DeWalt Pivoting Bit Tip Holder with Ring
This Magnetic Pivot Holder has a 20-degree pivot mode that allow you to get into the tightest spaces.
- Can be used in straight or pivot mode
- Qualified for Cordless Impact Tools up to 2000 in/lbs of torque
The happy reviewer: I use this on a daily basis. I keep a spare on hand at all times. I can’t live without it. They last me about a year before the tips start pulling out too easily. I work on machinery and am always using different bits and need to get at different angles constantly. I do not like the heads that allow your bits to pull out easily. The tip holder secures bits well enough that you may need a pliers to remove them to change to a different bit.
$249 — Milwaukee M12 Hammervac Universal Dust Extractor Kit
The Hammervac is the industry’s only universal dust extractor and is compatible with major power tool brands of SDS Plus rotary hammers and AC/DC hammer drills. Featuring a replaceable certified HEPA filter for high-quality debris filtration, the user is able to replace the filter independently of the dust box to cost-effectively maintain suction efficiency.
- Self-powered by M12 RedLithium battery pack with no cords or hoses for maximum portability
- 3-mode switch features auto-on mode that turns Hammervac on and off automatically
- Lightweight at 3.3 lbs. to minimize fatigue in overhead and horizontal drilling applications
The happy reviewer: perfect little tool for almost all hammer-drills from all manufacturers. OSHA is starting to require air filtration devices on drilling equipment and this is the most compact version on the market.
$29.99 — Power Planter 3×12 DIY Guru Auger
Gardening is a whole lot easier with this Power Planter tool, one that has been made by family farmers for over 30 years to quickly and efficiently plant bedding plants and bulbs or mix paint, mortar, or soil in a bucket or wheelbarrow.
- Non-slip hex drive to fit any 3/8″ or larger drill
- Lifetime warranty on craftsmanship and materials
The happy reviewer: I ordered 200 bulbs and as soon as I hit the confirmation button I wondered “what was I thinking”! We live in the mountains and the soil can be rocky. This tool made the job so much easier- I was done in hours, not days.
$51.60 — Milwaukee 49-22-8510 Right Angle Drill Attachment Kit
Milwaukee’s right-angle attachment handles roughly twice as much torque as its competitors. This attachment is extremely durable, and is a favorite in the contracting world.
- 1/4-inch hex right-angle drill/driver attachment; accepts standard 1/4-inch hex shank bits
- For cordless 2.4- to 18-volt drills; up to 235-inch-pounds of torque; allows work in tight spots
The happy reviewer: If you are considering trying to drill in a tight area, or inside a wall, do not consider buying any other right angle drill attachment than this one. I’m a professional TV Installer and this is the most important drilling tool in my arsenal. I have killed probably 10 or more other brands/types of right angle drills and drill bit attachments, they always end up breaking. The chuck slides down, you slide in a hex drill bit, and lock it back in place, nice and smooth, and holds on to the bit well.
