    Re: 55 deg close quarter drill

    The only place if you can call it Canadian is Amazon.ca that has it, far cry from the 30 or 35 dollar Neiko that these drills used to go for, and never were sold in Canada that I remember.

    Now you have to get better than 120-- out to get one of those, I bought a Milwaukee then for $80- something but it is still going, though I had to replace the bearings and fix the housing because fine sanding dust had gotten into the shielded bearings, changed them to sealed ones.

    Just blowing out the dust does not prevent the dust from getting into the shielded bearings, so keep that in mind, maybe start off with changing the bearings to prevent this from happening, as the housing is plastic and it will wear away in no time flat if the bearing ceases and rotates in the housing.

    Sorry Federated tools will get it for you for $205-- plus taxing shipping

      Milwaukee makes one but not carried in stores as far as I can determine. I got mine by going to a store that carries Milwaukee tools and ordering it through them.

        I had an awful time trying to find one of those a few years back and never did get one. I needed it for drilling (who'd have thought?) between some floor joists and ended up with a Mastercraft 90 degree one that did the job and has lasted through many other jobs; it certainly wasn't expensive and not used much around here really. It is handy to have when tough jobs require it.

        Have you considered one of the non-powered bowl sanders as an alternative?

          If Amazon is considered to be in Canada. https://www.amazon.ca/Neiko-10529A-Q...ag=googcana-20

          You can get even smaller ones if you have the air supply. Sioux used to be known for their close quarter air drills. They cost 3 to 5 times or more though.

              It is a starting point. The OP has a brand and model number. Looking I found others places with similar prices down to $37 or with shipping of $17 (I have no idea what the currency is). As for the time it takes to get, it is a post Covid world and nothing moves like it used to so be prepared for long delivery times as a norm. Searching will lead to other brands to look into and as I said there are always air tools.

                Both Makita and Hitachi do a 45 degree angle drill I have and use the Hitachi for my bowl sanding, the dust worries me but I blow it out once in a while, its good, as I can wind the speed right down so my sand paper does not get so hot, I wind my lathe down to 150 rpm.

                  Like I said Pete, you need $120-- or better to get one, as it shows the price is $96 plus $23 shipping plus taxes and yes then you got one.

                  These Neiko close quarter drills were $30-- or so a handful years ago, they sure got more expensive without any changes made to them.

                  Found a less costly one at Harbor Freight $50-- US, don't know the shipping cost

                          The right angle or 90is not what you want, as it prevents you from sanding in some bowl shapes, that's why the 55 or close quarter drill are used.

                          And there is the other problem, it is a drill, not a sander, where turners use the drill for hours on end, with the original shielded bearings that is just fine for drilling, but with sanding wood, that fine dust gets inside and it does get inside the bearing as I found out, and already knew other did get in their Neiko drills also, the reason I bought the Milwaukee hoping it would be better, it wasn't, but I was able to repair the damage and replace the bearing, still going strong.

                            Another way to get some inside sanding is to make sanding wheels of different diameter that have the perimeter covered with foam and Velcro and then use tape rolled type sand paper with the proper Velcro also attached to the perimeter. This would let a straight drill work on the insides of the bowl.

                            Another method for attaching sand paper to a drum.

                              You can try looking for 115 degree angle die grinders. They are smaller, fit the palm of your hand and made for sanding. Downside is they cost more and you need a compressor that can deliver at least a steady 4cfm. I'm sure I have seen cheap imports in the past.
