Where to buy a 90 degree Drill Bit

I'm doing some maintenance on my electrical system. I purchased a special L90 box, which is required by code to install a foundation level outlet. I went to an electrical supply store to purchase this box. The clerk told me that I must purchase a 90 degree drill bit, which he explained as a standard drill bit with a 90 degree bend in it. He told me these can be purchased at most hardware stores. The instructions that came with the box shows a detailed drawing of these bits. They are basically just a standard bit but they have a 90 degree bend in the middle of them so they will drill around corners.
I spent most of the day going from hardware store to hardware store. No one carries them. I even called Sears and Snap On Tools. No one has them. Where can I buy them?
Thanks
Jerry

Jerry-
The clerk gave you the wrong name....go back to the hardware store and ask for an "outside corner bit".

You'd have to tell me which "perch" to use, from what I know, the unit of length known as a perch varied from 10 feet to 25 feet depending on the era and location.
The sennight is easier, it's just one week. I think sennight meant seven days in some language.

Harbor Freight. Most of their shit is so bad, it might as well be bent 90 degrees. ;-)

I know not to feed trolls or even respond if I think it is a troll. I "got it" about the 90 degree drill bit and the right angle screwdriver you mentioned.
However I don't get the sky hook thing. I think I read a post once about someone that was working on an EE or ME degree and someone told him to get a Skyhook and ....... Don't remember the rest. Is it suppose to be something that lets you hook something to the sky?
My wife will not got to the hardware store anymore since I gave her a list of things to get and one was a left handed hammer. She came home and told me they had them but she didn't know if I needed a metric or standard one.
Thanks RC

Sold by Snap-On Lefty Tools, among others.
