Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY03038 Good quality Phillips screw bits
The Phillips tip of these screw bits is tapered smaller then the tips of Phillips screw bits from other manufacturers to allow these Phillips screw bits to engage deeper into the head of Phillips screws then other screw bits, even into screws with damaged or worn heads.
These screw bits drive screws and stay engaged into the head of Phillips screws better then other Phillips screw bits and do not wear as quickly as other hardened Phillips screw bits.
Was able to use one of these Phillips screw bits on a 1/2" drill to remove Phillips screws with worn or damaged heads that could not be removed and that had already ruined other hardened Phillips screw bits when attempting to remove them.
These screws bits are a great buy and are sold as a package of 5 screw bits.

I'm getting too old to swing a hammer very long. So now I use my impact drill and phillips bits to screw the boards together. I put together a chicken run with 2x4s and 3 inch long screws. I started with the cheap bits that I already had and went through them very quickly. The tips of them rounded off and wouldn't fit into the slot of the screws anymore. I went through the last 4 that I had. At least I didn't throw away new bits.
Then I got out my new Milwaukee bits. I noticed a big difference from the beginning. They fit into the screw slot much better than the cheap bits, and the tips didn't round off like the cheap bits. I did manage to wear the tip on the 1 that I used to do more than half of the project, but it will live to do another project.

If you are tired of your screwdriver bits wearing out too quickly or stripping the head out of your fastener, these Milwaukee shock wave bits are a good choice for you. They are priced right and they last a long time. The bit is sized perfectly for the standard phillips head screw and engage the screw head positively and correctly. Even at a slight offset angle they grab and keep the screw running true. They are a good value for the money,

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by msd not very durable bits.
Ok - I use lots of these bits for my normal battery drill or my hammer drill depending on the need so I feel compelled to negatively review these bits. I found very quickly that these bits are actually less durable than my normal bulk bits. My very first slip out of the phillips screws I was working on damaged the tips of these bits. That is pretty ridiculous considering the advertised strength of these things. I personally will not buy them again, and will probably end up tossing them out after only a few uses. Phillips screw bits have the nasty habit of jumping out of the screw, so if the metal the bit is made from is not very hard, it will damage itself immediately. That is exactly what happened here. I was building some oak doors, and needed to screw in some predrilled counter sunk screws, and as I got the screw tighter it jumped out (which is not abnormal), but I noticed that the bit had already been damaged, and of course that causes more jumping out. I do not recommend these bits due to the low quality of metal these are made from.

I do not have an impact driver, but I do drive a lot of screws- I usually buy them in 25lb boxes. The problem is that regular driver bits, even the name brand ones, wear out far too quickly. A worn bit often will not fully seat and the head of the screw is marred.
These bits do last longer. I do not know if it is because of the flexibility in the thin neck reducing shock loads or the metal is just harder. I estimate that these bits last twice as long as my regular ones.
