Does this tool accept regular drill bits?

Asked by Mario August 17, 2020
1
Answer

This tool is meant to be used holes in drywall, typically they use 1/8th 5/32 or 1/4 size bits, with the proper collet I’m sure it would accept the same size drill bits but I don’t know how this tool would perform at drilling holes

Could this be used to rout door plate and hinge recesses?

No this tool is not designed for that.

How do I change drill bit?

Asked by Quicc July 16, 2020
1
Answer

I would refer to the manual that came with the tool. There is a button to push that locks the chuck and then you can twist the holder and loosen the chuck. Insert new bit and reverse process and tighten well.

Can this be used if mdf board is in back of drywall?

Asked by Ernie January 8, 2020
3
Answers

Yes, you could. I wouldn’t use the drywall but as it’s rounded and needs to get through the wood backing. But it will chew through it just make sure you follow the correct direction of the bit and go slow.

DeWalt Quality
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When it came time to renovate my basement, I knew I would need to update my old DeWalt 18v tools. My wife gave me clearance to buy every tool I would need. I’ve always been a fan of DeWalt, so it was an easy choice. I loaded up on DeWalt 20v tools. This tool makes cutting out drywall for can lights, outlets and switches as easy as can be. Be sure to wear eye protection because it will get dusty. If you are reading this, just buy it. You will not regret it.

Lightweight and cordfree
Screwgun works great for driving screws straight, fast, without overdriving. But not at angles. Also, forward and reverse switch is directly opposite of my Dewalt drills

I bought this a week ago. Changing the bits is very difficult with the lock button and having to take the depth guide off every time. Both bits that came with broke after barely any use. I will most likely be returning it and looking for a better corded one. I have mostly all DeWalt cordless tools and hand tools and have been very happy with all but this.

Works good, but the bits that came with it didnt last long. I expected more than 20 feet of cutting per bit although I think I cut along floor joist so that may have contributed.
