Well I will first tell you a trick that works; use a hammer screwgun that can be found anywhere such as Dewalt or whatever. And now I will tell you how to modify a bit so that it anchors inside wheather in forward or reverse. Leave alone 1/16 of an inch of the tip and there upwards tapper 1/32 of an inch the sides starting from the center of sides outwards so as to allow the bit to rotate slightly before starting to give pressure to the screw and then as it turns initially; well the bottom part of the bit that you did not modify anchors at the bottom of that screw's bit hole to prevent the bit from coming out as you screw the screw and of like always as you know stripping your bit and ruining it ; I have a grinder with a zip-cut on it and tomorrow will try it for fun and will tell you what happened. I wich I had a lathe milling combo to try these things.

I am telling you this about the hammer drill trick because I went through a box of 25 bits on this trailer that am flipping and then seen this blumber on my job site using that and how well it worked and all that time that I used those wasted bits; my drill had a hammer and all I'd had had to do was flick the switch. The irony!!!

What happens is that every hammer hit; the bit re-sits at the seat and doesn't mutate itself or the hole like it would if it began skipping uncontrollably. I imagine also that is the furthest end part would be ahead on the bitby a way of a twist; this may aid in grabbing it. The ideal solution of course is a slightly larger head and a bit and screw hole that are not tapered thus having not force of pushing themselves apart. Another political bull issue where material is forced onto consumers by way of stores being extorted in a way where if they would not carry certain products ; such and such and so on would factor apon contracts between large supplyers and distributers; but now online would be the right way to shop for instance for wood screws; where one could probably mind Hex one or whatever that works better; I know that will not happen; just a little humour.

Yes?



edit: what size washers do you suggest for a rubberizing of a 45deg angle house roof on the edges to prevent leaks?

try use some glue with it.

My suggestion would be to get yourself a proper fitting Robertson screwdriver. Sometimes you may need to pre-drill with a smaller diameter drill bit so the screw doesn't strip.Another handy idea is not to use the power drill quickly as the torque sometimes causes it to slip... Just a couple of solutions I have used- most applications where I used them are wood to wood assembly.
Cheers!

One other solution is to buy your screws in a hardware store not the dollar store.....
I swear they make em out of softer steel in chiina....
The bits are softer too on those cheap screwdriver sets like multi drivers etc from dollar dollar.
get a good tool and have a successful screw

I run and run an bub-contracting insulation, drywall and taping busness and know what I am saying and that is that it does not matter the quality of the bits and wood screws are likely from same manufacturers when it comes to buying at hardware bulk store areas where those are from the boxes that high consumption construction companies wouild buy by the box and would use a hammer drill to drive them and that is why I am sharing this with you; because if I don't you may have ended up learning the sad way like I did.
