  • Impact Driver Bits

    At work today I had used my 18v Impact driver to drive about 300 4 in. Robertson head deck screws. In the process I destroyed about 6 #2 Rob hex bits. I was wondering if anyone knows of a brand of bits that are specifically designed for Impact use or atleast a brand that has proven to be sucessful for this use. Thanks in advance.

    Local HD stocks Dewalt/Milwaukee IMPACT-READY driver bits, nut drivers, 3/8" socket adapters and magnetic bit holders.

    They are forged metal/special steel treatment designed for impact driver use.

        apex impact driver bits #hhs-0234 $3.05

        cheap driver bits were never intended for the new impact drivers and
        easily get bunged up when the impact action kicks in.

        I think if you Google apex driver bits you may find quantity discounts

        Another reason for bunging up driver bits is not aligning the bit to screw to wood properly
        This is an easy occurrence, and cheap screws will destroy driver bits too.

          I got some of these Highpoint Driver Bits at Woodcraft and they have lasted longer than any others I've used in the past.
          I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

            Yes Dewalt makes a whole line of impact ready bits and they wok. But I can't seem to find a regular straight blade tip int impact line? Any ideas
