urgent ... De Walt Drill Bit holder

Recommended Posts

A quickie. 

 

is is there a knack or trick to this DeWalt bitholder.

 

It has come back from a loan to someone doing a job for me, and I am not totally clear if a thoroughly attached bit requires something to be pulled or pushed or twisted, or if it just indicates a bit of brute force with pliers.

 

Chap got through 2 entire batteries just screwing and drilling ally and wood,

 

Any advice welcome.

 

Cheers

Doing the next bit of accessible house, in the form of a oak grab rail.

I've got those bit holders and they are a bit poor. Pulling the collar back can be a pain and sometimes you need to twist and pull back at the same time

Interesting hour spent using stainless steel screws in oak... quite surprised by the size of the pilot holes needed.

You need an impact driver. Once you have one you'll wonder how you managed without it

I think decent size pilot holes is the way to go or you might start shearing off the heads of stainless steel screws.
