Default Swivel adaptor for screw bits

I am looking for a swivel adapter that will allow the turning of screws at an angle.

Would a flex shaft work for you?

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.

I do not believe they will fit in a Philips type head which I presume the OP
was referring to.

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.
