Every Impact Driver Needs A Right-Angle Attachment

Shockwave Right Angle

A decade or so ago there were no such thing as a cordless impact driver, today they are the most popular power tools on the jobsite. We’d argue nearly every single one of them should have a Right Angle Adapter within reach, getting into tight spaces, there simply is no better option. These have been around for some time from Milwaukee, Dewalt and others, however none of the right angle adapters designed 5+ years ago were built to handle the higher torque of today’s impact drivers. That is until now with the launch of the new Milwaukee Shockwave Adapter 48-32-2390 ($19) which is designed to handle the 2000 in-lbs torque or more from impacts like the M18 FUEL 2853-20 ($129)! Shipping in the next few weeks these should be a big hit for summer. (more…)

PORTER-CABLE 18 Volt, Two-Speed Close Quarters Drill PCC520B

Information on this drill was just released today and it looks like it could be a very handy addition for many plumbers, electrician or anyone who finds them themselves in tight situations. The projected cost for the bare tool would be $79 at any Lowes or online at Amazon. It does not look like there is going to be a kit with batteries and charger available at launch in November but our guess is it would not be far behind.

Bosch 12V Right Angle Drill/Driver with Movable Head PS11-2A


The previous version of this tool, Bosch PS10-2A driver, had a ¼” hex head on it but also articulated 90 degrees with 5 stop positions. The new PS11-2A ($149, Ohio Power Tool) adds a 3/8” chuck to the tool along with a 20% torque increase to 101 in-lbs. Also the larger trigger is variable speed 0-1,300 RPM, an LED light has been mounted on top but the tool remains a very light package at around 2.75 lbs.
