    You can buy a drill adapter for the impact driver. They're $10 on Amazon. I don't know about wood, but it works fine for drilling in metal.

    After watching your vids I plan to get a microjig. Do you recommend just the original or the upgraded one? I'm really only going to use it on a table saw

    You’re driving in the screws with a dewalt but, using a ryobi to review

    Hi Steve, great explanation. Quick question : is it a good idea to buy adapters for the impact driver so it could use the drill bits? Or just buy the drill? Context : I am a starter in woodworking and want to start off with a generic tool I can use in most of my tasks (which I expect to be 90% fastening to begin with). Thanks!

    If anyone watching this is just getting into their 1st drill and/or impact driver, I highly highly recommend getting both in a kit! Buying one or the other with 2 batteries and a charger and then buying the 2nd one later as a bare tool usually cost you so much more $. If you need to wait a little longer to save up money and buy both in the kit, it is SO worth it. Good luck

    This is going to make me sound like a dumbarse but I was being driven spare by my bits always falling out of my impact driver, you have to pull the collar forward! Who knew? (everybody?) Thank you Steve, loving your work

    BTW – I have drill bits for use with my impact collet. They're not for very precise jobs (as that driver has loads of runout), but they do the job for coarser work.

    You can drill holes with an impact driver…they make plenty of bits that fit an impact driver.
    They are especially ideal for spade bits.

    Makita Gold bits are far better than the cheap "quantity over quality" type bits.
    They are by far the best driver bits I've ever used.
    I've literally never stripped one yet and I've used them for a while now.

    Seriously love your content. I put off watching this video forever. "Ha, I know how to use a drill! What could Steve possible teach me!" Well, after getting quite mad at a stripped screw the other day, I'm finally looking up an impact driver… Thanks a ton!

    Hey I'm trying to get the barest of necessities something that can do a little bit of everything. I've tried a dremel but it can't really cut wood. Would a Oscillating tool be good to have for cutting and sanding, plus stuff I haven't accounted for haha? A drill is a must have, so I got one of those but I keep finding myself needing to cut something, and I find the big machinery to be well… Intimidating. Also you've said that you don't really use hand tools, would you happen to know a fellow youtuber that shows how to use like chisels, I feel like they'd be more controllable (for my at least, I tend not to hold onto things very tightly haha) Any help would be much appreciated, thank you

    Hello! I've watched your videos for a while, they're very interesting. I recently opened this channel and do something like what you do. It would help me a lot if you could provoke my channel! I respect you and do not stop from what you are doing!

    Oh wonderful, I get to go get a new toy!! I love my Ryobi 18 V drill ( with light!) and the impact driver will be a Ryobi too. I love your sense of humor … just found you today…. even your commercials are entertaining…. hope your son is finishing up college soon so your bank account can start healing. Thanks for the great service you are preforming for some of us that didn't have brothers and whose dad thought screwdrivers were something you drink.

    How do pocket hole screws handle being driven by an impact driver? They're a little hard to see in the pocket holes, and sometimes it's hard to gauge by feel alone.

    You can too drill holes with an impact drill. You can buy drill bits made for impact driver. I have some.

    Thank you, I really needed this for wood shop class because my teacher doesn't tell us how to use this drill, he just assumes we now how.

    I wish I watched this video before replacing the door knob to my sister's room. Took me two days because I had strip three screws…. that's why research and due diligence is important.

    I wasn’t going to watch because it looked soo basic and I’ve been drilling for soo many years – but my hunch was right – I got a couple of good ideas that I’ll use from now on. Thanks, from a Mere Mortal!

    I'll have to disagree with your opinion on driver and drill bits at about 6:30. I too, have Ryobi drill/driver set. So, naturally I just bought the Ryobi bits. BIG mistake! They were GARBAGE!! The driver bits would always shred and lose their shape when I had to really impact drive something into dense wood. And I also had countless drill bits break whenever I was trying to drill a simple hole through wood…. such a joke. Finally got fed up and bought DeWalt bits. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Night and day. Buy nice bits, it makes ALL the difference in the world trust me

    You can get drill bits for an impact but they don’t work as well

    Wow, quantity of quality, I guess he doesn't do any precision work.

    I go for mid-high range quality so I know it will last a bit longer and drill a better hole, most of the time it will do it quicker.

    Im still blown away that a manufacturer has not come out with a driver/impact in one where you have a switch for impact.
    Thats for the vid Steve.
