CXS Right angle clearance?
« on: August 16, 2018, 07:52 PM »
Hey guys, does anyone know how tight of an area you can use the right angle attachment in, wondering the dimensions for the right angle chuck with only a screw bit installed, not a chuck. I commonly have like around 2" area to install a screw and am curious to see if this would work .

Maybe this will help as well.  Looks to me like the best you can get is 2 3/4" plus the length of the screw.

Here’s a photo of the Festool right angle drive, a SK ratchet and a SnapOn ratchet. The lengths are 2.9”, 2.6” and 1.2” respectively. When I run into tight spaces like this, I’ll start the screw with the SK or SnapOn first and once I have the room, I’ll drive it home with the CXS right angle.

If this is doable or not all depends upon the length of the screw.
