- Small hole, awkward place
I need to drill a few small holes in awkward to reach locations. Will this work, including the 1m extension? Only small holes so I won’t need to apply much force or anything, just whether I’ll physically be able to get a drill bit in and if there are any reasons such a plan would be totally crazy; will this work?
Alternatively, any better suggestions welcome. Something with controllable speed would I’m sure be beneficial.Posted 1 month ago
It’s difficult to reach and very difficult to get a drill in (putting blinds up behind a cupboard unit in a camper van). Right angled drill might help, but I think I’ll get myself one of those flexible things – had a look to see if I could find such a thing but google gave me hundreds of results for drivers but few/none suitable for a drill (and all were rigid.).

It has a brilliant right angle adapter and the moment you use it all your buyer’s remorse goes away. It’s 10v and looks like a toy but I make furniture and it’s always my first choice. So light, strong and lovely.spooky_b329Subscriber
I’ve got a bendy drill attachment and also the 90 degree chuck. Used the 90 chuck a few times but its not magic so often won’t fit. The bendy thing I’ve never had much luck as its fairly stiff and doesn’t bend that tight, especially at the end which is a fairly long rigid section. Perhaps more expensive ones are more flexible and a shorter chuck on the end, but then you might as well get a proper right angle drill.Posted 1 month ago

On the divorce present to self.
Drill the hole through the inside wall of the cupboard?
Not necessary, it’s got a hole in the back.
I think you are going to be frustrated by the length of the handle.
If it’s that tight already it’ll be even worse when you are trying to fit the blind with the blind in the way.
Have you considered glue of even quality velcro?
From the layout I’m pretty sure I can get the flexible drill snake thing in, don’t need the blind on the rails while I fit it, but the blind is held under tension when fitted so no way velcro would work, glue perhaps but more messy and still a good possibility of failure I reckon.Posted 1 month ago
