Back when I was with a previous employer, we used in the residential field a drill that had a long neck, approx 4' between the motor and the chuck. The chuck was mounted at a 45 deg angle on the end of the neck. This enabled us to drill most, if not all, of the house from the floor without needing a ladder. I am now searching for one of those drills. Can anyone provide me with a maker of this tool? Maybe provide me with a URL? I tried milwaulkee thinking they are the maker of the drill but could not find it on their website.

Thanks for any help

The drill motor is not included. It is just shown as an example. I think the attachment can be used with pretty much and Milwaukee D-handle or right angle drill.

I have that extension. It's about 30" long, and the end is 33 deg. Unlike the 90 deg. angled head that comes with the drill, the 33 deg. angled head has a 1:1 ratio.

One of the handiest uses, besides both verticle and horizontal drilling overhead, is drilling down through a floor plate. The angle helps you miss the perimeter joists.

That milwaulkee extension is too big, the one that you want to get is the Danielson Drill Extension by Price and Rutzebeck

HCE727, I was going to give you the benefit of the doubt by checking out this P&R drill, but after searching I can only find their name and address. I have not seen ony of their line.
I must say, after 18 years in the trade, and a lifelong tool hound, I have never even heard of them.


That being said, the Milwaukee extension drill is the coolest thing since.....well..since the drill was invented.
Drilling up, down, across ceilings. This drill is a HUGE time(and back)saver!
About the only thing I could ever complain about is storing it in a van.

Speedy, I have one and it is great,trust me.
It is better than the Milwaulkee. I have used both. I checked around on the net and could not find it either. I know who carries them though. Harboc Electrical Supply, 215-747-7800. I store mine in the ceiling of my van with two 3/4 mini's with butterfly nuts for easy access.
