Just don't be surprised if you too find it isn't capable of doing real work.

So I emailed the company, and got a nice email back from a man who said he would send me a new one, and he would check it before he sent it to me.

Gave this as a gift to a cabinet installer who needs to get into tight or awkward places and looked like a great tool.

I got one of these things for Christmas, and it seems like a great idea. However, I found that the chuck wobbled; that is, it didn't revolve around its axis. Which means, if you drill a hole with a 1/8" drill bit, the hole will be larger than 1/8". Typically, when you have a bit in your drill, if you sight down the length of the bit while it's spinning, you can see that it remains in a straight line. With this first orbiter the bit was very much NOT in a straight line; I tried 2 bits in it, with the same result. Not to mention the fact that the orbiter just FEELS like it's wobbling. So I'll call my first Orbiter "#1".

I took it back to the store and exchanged it for another one (#2). This one was better than #1, but still not right; you could easily see that the chuck was wobbling as it rotated. It would be usable for some things, but still not the way it should be.

So I emailed the company, and got a nice email back from a man who said he would send me a new one, and he would check it before he sent it to me. That's the good news. The bad news is, the one that he checked to be sure it was straight, #3, is not as good as #2!

So... the Orbiter sounds like a great idea, but as long as it can't spin a drill bit (or a screwdriver bit) straight, it's definitely limited in its usefulness. (Just imagine trying to drive a screw with it wobbling around!)

I bought this product thinking I was going to save some money by avoiding a right angle drill.

It worked great for a day of drilling holes through joists, then the internal metal gears (the mechanism that makes this product work) started to strip. Now it won't even drill a hole through paper.

****Update****
I contacted customer service since the product has a two year warranty, I just emailed them, told them that I have a broken Orbiter and they sent me a new one just like that. No questions asked. The only problem is that the new orbiter is still in the box. By the time they sent me a new one, I had already bought a right angle drill.

I too bought this tool to drill a few studs for electric wires in a remodel project. I got 9 studs drilled when it would only make noise and not turn. I was using a 3/4 inch spade bit and a 14.4v cordless drill.

After reading other reviews I proceeded to order the Milescraft 1300 Orbiter just to have around the house for those odd occasions that require drilling in difficult spaces... big mistake!!! I did notice, as at least one other reviewer pointed out, that the run-out or wobble of the drill bit was pretty significant. That didn't bother me because I typically wouldn't use this item for precision drilling so 1/16 of an inch error, give or take, is not a big deal for my intended use.

Finally the day came (months after I received the 'Orbiter') that I needed to put a hole in a 2X6 with limited clearance. I'll spare you all of the details of what happened during my attempts to put a hole through 2" of pine but my attempt was unsuccessful. I don't know if I hit a knot or possibly a nail coming in from the unseen side but the 'Orbiter' self destructed on the very first use. Apparently the gears inside must have stripped. Turning the input shaft no longer results in motion at the output shaft.

My conclusion is the 'Orbiter' is a flimsy POS that has no practical use in my tool box. They probably should have put a maximum of 1/4 inch chuck on the output side to prevent the unit from being so easily overloaded. I was using a battery powered 3/8" VSR drill. I can't imagine how quickly the 'Orbiter' would have self-destructed if I had used my corded drill, with serious torque, instead.

From what I can see this product is a TOY not a tool. Give it to a child and warn them not to be to rough with it. I am not familiar with Milescraft but if this is representative of their product line I won't be buying any more of their stuff. In fairness to them I have not attempted to return the item or have it repaired under warranty or even spoken to or notified them of my experience.

I also bought this tool to drill wooden studs for electrical wires. I am using the orbiter 1300, a spade handle Dewalt drill, and an Irwin 3/4" self advancing auger bit. With this set up, there is a sound (similar to the clutch slipping on a cordless drill) and the bit slows way down. I am not sure if this thing has a built in preset clutch to prevent it from snapping in two. Its probably fine for general light use and the ability to drill at nearly any angle is handy.

You can use this drill attachment at any angle between 90 and 180. The handle, which you use to loosen or lock the attachment into the desired angle, is a big help during the drilling process. Depending on how you wish to apply pressure to the drill chuck, either by pulling or pushing on the handle, you can loosen the handle and change angles until it's "just right" and comfortable. At the price + shipping, it's very very reasonable for the quality of the product. It works much better than the $18 fixed-at-90 degrees drill attachment, sans handle, I picked up a couple of years ago. Oh, and because you can lock it at 180 degrees, you can drill straight while using the handle for better "handling" and ease of use. I may pick up another to give as a gift to my best friend.
