Two New Right-Angle Cordless Drivers

Hitachi’s right-angle impact driver (above) works well in tight quarters because it’s short and narrow. The Milwaukee drill/driver (right) — shown with a stubby bit in the chuck — is good for drilling the occasional hole in locations that would be hard to get at with a larger tool.

The battery gauge is a handy addition to the Milwaukee tool, but the electronic clutch could use some work: You never know when it will kick in, and there's too much torque at the lowest setting. A mechanical clutch would be better.
