Thanks Dean, was not aware of these. I have found the flex shafts to be
troublesome and the others at fixed angle of 45 or 90 deg just do not cut
it.

Should work at least a few times - if you can hold it well enough to
keep the bit square in the screw head without camming out. and if the
required angle is less than 21 degrees - - - -

And apparently changing the bits is a royal PITA too - you pretty
much need a vice-grips or two.
