    My dad made what was probably the first flexible drive extension ever.
    back in the early 1950s about the time I was born according to what an uncle told me years later about the time my dad needed to get at a nut / bolt or some fastener at an angle that a universal joint type extension was not handy to use so he cut a 1/4" drive extension in half then brazed in a short length of cable. According to my uncle a tool sales men saw it and soon every tool dealer had them
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    A useful tool! Thanks!

    One suggestions, though. Consider slipping a loose tube or pipe sleeve (of some determined length) over cable so you can better control the flex in the cable. This will also help prevent broken/frayed wire from the cable sticking you in your hands or fingers (worse than a paper cut!).

    I have had a flexible 1/4'' drive 6'' extension in my tool box for 40 years at least. I have never been able to apply any torque to a nut with it.
