Even the little bits matter. : ) Today I spent about five hours building some bar height adirondack chairs out of cedar material which I plan on placing in different areas around my balcony. I went with wood glue and exterior grade phillips screws for the joinery and drove all 75 or so screws using this bit set from Makita.
It may sound like a minor detail but I can vouch that these bits engage a #2 phillips very well and you can pick em up for about 4 bucks at The Home Depot. They are designed for impact situations engineered to distribute the torsional stress in the main column of the bit to prevent excessive wear on the bit tip. These are known as the Makita Impact Gold Bits and are expected to out-live conventional bits due to their high wear resistance and durability.
So far they’re working great for the abuse I’ve been handing them with virtually no cam-out of any of the fasteners I’ve driven in. If you’re in the market, feel free to use this link to learn a bit more. This review was provided in support of the ProSpective Campaign sponsored by The Home Depot. They supply the tool and I supply an opinion. The links in this review are affiliate links and provide a small kick-back to the website which helps to keep the wheel turning. Regardless, I genuinely appreciate your support.
