Thanks for the response. Am I going to be able to get the leverage I need with a right angle chuck? To drill through the door took over an hour, and that was with me leaning on it pretty heavily. When it was just the weight of the drill, it wasn't enough to get the bit to bite into the steel...
Googled it - looks handy but I think still a bit too wide for what I'd need. There's barely 1/4" clearance between the center of the hinge and the outside of the smoker!
Oh man, on the same page there was another Dewalt item mentioned - the "Hex MAXFIT Pivot Holder" which is VERY thing and only applies a 20 degree angle. That could work perfectly! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction
