Okay, I'm not a woodworker, I'm a roofer, but I figured you fine
woodworkin' folks might have an answer for me. I use a screwgun for
several hours every day, whil bent at the waist to screw down sheets of
insulation. It's killing my back. What would be perfect would be a
drill bit extension about 30 inches long, so I could stand upright and
save myself some pain. Short of having a machine shop make one for me,
does anyone know where I could buy such an item?
I doubt it, but you could try techniks. http://www.techniksusa.com /
Either that or ... um... Hmm... MSC? Doubtful!
Much success to you. If you find it, please let me know. I might have an
application for it as well which is slightly different.

Specifically, you might look for one of these
But a bit longer. You'll need a collet with the right size to hold your
driver bit too. The shank of this "thing" could go into your standard
chuck. ...sorta It's a dirty fix, but possible.

I think you are right... Saw this at Home Depot a few years back. You
stand up and it drives the "thing" you are driving in the same position as a
standard walking cane.
Walk into Home Depot or Loews, etc. and ask.
Probably cheaper than my recently posted fix.

Yea...it is really easy to get rid of a lot of bucks for
this sort of thing.
1) Go over to http://www.ebay.com/ and search for "deck screw
gun" (with the quotes). there are often one or two on auction
for not too much. Here is one current auction:
Also, "screwgun*" (without the quotes) works well too...
although it will bring back a lot of hits you will have to sift
2) Poke around local pawnshops. When outside construction
weather goes away, tools like this show up with fair regularity.
OK. I'll bite. How do you hold the screw to the material when
starting it without bending down, or mind you don't break your wrist
turning the drill around each time so that you can attach the screw
[almost three feet away] first if it's magnetic? Right.
