A right angle drill also known as a 90 degree is not a drill you’re likely to see quite often among DIYers. They’re a special type of drill that are used when there’s barely enough space to accommodate a regular power drill.
With a right angle drill, the head of the drill is at right angles or 90 degrees to the grip, with the back of the head not rising above the grip line like regular or standard power drills.
This design allows you to use the drill in confined spaces where there’s very little or limited room for movement or where using a regular power drill is impossible.
Although you can use it for your average DIY projects at home, it’s ideal for plumbers, construction workers, handymen and home remodelers who often find themselves in situations where there’s very little room to use a normal power drill.
For instance, drilling or screwing between studs and joist can be quite difficult or impossible for a typical power drill. But with the right angle drill, you can drill whatever holes or drive screws in between joists and studs.
As a cabinet maker, you also find yourself in situations where using a standard power drill is impossible, such as when drilling or screwing inside tight cabinets.
A small right angle drill can make those situations pretty easy to handle.
In this article, I’ll be reviewing the 10 best right angle drills you can get today and use for your projects.
