    Kobalt right angle bit driver.

    http://www.lowes.com/pd_338358-22328...=#BVRRWidgetID

    So I picked this up about five months ago. I wanted something to get into tight places on units I'm testing. A Lot of the components are installed with the unit half assembled then Ill have to figure out how to get into them when I find problems on the unit in my test station. Things like high and low gas pressure switches on gas furnaces installed within two inches of the top of the cabinet.

    Long story short I have found this to be my tool of choice for most anything I run across. With a decent assortment of 3" or 6" bits I find it to be much easier on my wrist then standard screwdrivers/nutdrivers while allowing better torque. Just passing along what I find to be a very useful tool.

    This is the best thing I've found for tight spaces http://www.menards.com/main/tools-ha.../p-1465758.htm
    It's kinda chinsy but holding up well considering I use it with an impact driver screw gun and if I have to replace it once a year well, for three dollars I would buy a new one every week if I had to.

    I have tried extensions like that. I'm talking about areas that you can't even fit a stubby screwdriver. Maybe an inch or two of clearance.

    I have a set like the one you posted also, the flexible extension isn't right for every situation but it has saved my butt on more then one occasion, and I wouldn't be contributing much if I just posted the same tools that were posted twice.
