    Q:Do I use a drill or my drill driver with these?

      A:  Use it as screw driver bits. These are rated as impact bit so it works better with an impact driver but yes it works with a drill driver. These bits are short. You need to use it with an adapter.

        A:  I usually use my impact driver with a shockwave bit tip holder or any other bit extension

          A:  I used a Drill Driver and adjusted the torque, so it stops when the outer ring touches the drywall. A drill will keep on spinning and create a ring on your drywall.

            A:  You can use either. The ring should prevent the screw from popping through the paper, regardless of which one.

                These Milwaukee Drywall Screw Setters are the type of things you never knew you needed, until you started using them, then you wondered why you didn't use them before. Drywall screw setters are a remarkable product to say the least. When used, they put an end to setting screws into drywall too far, and tearing the drywall paper. They are completely simple to use...The metal collar of the screw setter prevents the screw from going in any further...That's it! Wonderful product...Nothing else to know about or do, other than just use it! It's that simple. Highly Recommended!!!

                Drywall screw setters are great for anyone who wants to move fast and set themselves up for an easier time applying drywall mud. The cup will give you a good dimple in the rock when you're putting in your screws; just remember to push a bit harder than usual while you're using it, so the cup has a chance to imprint the drywall. The #2 bit will 'let go' of the screw when you get to the right depth automatically. If you're heavy handed and overspin your drill, you'll wear these out eventually. The trick is to get a feel for how long you need to spin the screw before taking your finger off the trigger.

                A set of four #2 Philips bits with an integral “collar” which will facilitate a consistent, minimal setting of drywall screws, these bits will speed up the installation of sheetrock and minimize the subsequent covering of the screws with compound due to the minimal and uniform dimple formed by the screw head. The collar, when it contacts the sheet rock, limits the depth to which the screw is driven which prevents overdriving the screw. Provided with a ¼ inch hex shank, they are intended for use in a drill-motor’s 3 jaw chuck. Although the same size as impact bit shanks, they are too short to be retained in the impact driver chuck. The bit size is engraved on the shank of the bit for ease in identification. Although I experienced one instance of “cam-out”, I believe the underlying stud more than likely had a knot at that location, and a slight increase in applied force easily completed the driving of the screw. These bits provide the convenience of a drywall screwgun, without the additional cost, making it an economical way for the DIYer to speed up drywall installation (and provide a professional looking job) without having to buy a dedicated tool. I would rate this very useful.

                These things work! It is simple and well engineered, and it allows one to work faster as there is little need to worry about overdriving drywall screws. Essentially it is a PH2 bit, with the addition of a fixed collar that meets the drywall surface as soon as the screw is in just far enough. The bit hold the screw rather well, but I do prefer to have the screw held in place by sliding collar, to reduce the chance of screws being dropped. To do that, these setters would need a larger collar or an integrated sliding collar and setter bit. Quality seems good, as one would expect from Milwaukee Tools. Made in Taiwan, packed in China

                The drywall screw setter is a must have to avoid over tightening screws while installing. I found the device to be consistent in operation and easy to use. The simplicity of the design makes it functional as well as practically impossible to over tighten making for proper depth every time. Even when the screw is close to the edge of a cut piece it works flawlessly. A must have for drywall installation for the novice and the pro.

                Drywall Screw Setter Bits - Four Pack These are simple but great drywall screw setter bits. The collar on the bit automatically stops you from driving drywall screws too deep, giving you consistent screw depth. The 1/4” shank fits standard drill drivers perfectly. I’ve been using bits like this for years, and these Milwaukee bits are strong, tough, and work well. Small bits like this are easy to misplace, so this four-pack is great.

                About 25 years ago, I had a special drywall screw gun. Can’t remember why I didn’t like it, but I got rid of it. It was a corded unit, and that may have been the main objection. Anyway, since then I always just used a standard cordless drill with a Phillips head driver. Yes, occasionally the screw got driven in too deep. I also kept the drill handy when I put the first coat of plaster on, as I could still give the screw another half turn in, so it would be below the surface. A little awkward. One of the big advantages of the bit holder was the sliding sleeve which held the screw in position while I powered the drill. A nice improvement to these drywall screw setters would be to design it so it had a slideable sleeve, or at least magnetize them to hold the screw better. Still, not a bad tool.

                Where have these things been all my life? I've over-driven some drywall screws now and again. Then I'm left with a hole in the drywall which isn't serving any purpose and I have to add another screw nearby to fasten the drywall. These are simple and easy to use and they completely foolproof the process of driving screws into drywall. I've posted a video here so you can see it in action. The metal "collar" stops the screw from going in any further. The only thing I don't like is that the Philips driver keeps spinning towards the end while it's losing contact with the screw head. You can hear the resultant (but brief) grinding sound in my video. To avoid stripping the screw head and damaging the bit, you should use the torque control (if so equipped) on your drill to stop the chuck from spinning at the point where the resistance becomes too great.

                These screw setters work perfectly! I have many times set a screw into dry wall and gone too deep, which does not hold properly. With these screw setters, the problem is solved. I used my drill with an adapter and it released the screw at the proper depth without damaging the drywall. The bits are high quality and grip the screw very well. They come in a pack of four and are priced very reasonably. A tool I will always have in my toolbox.

                I have tried a variety of drywall screw setters, and this Milwaukee product is both the simplest and works the best of all of them. It's very straightforward in design - the screw sits on a well-formed Philips head that holds the screw in place well. While the setter has no built-in magnet, you would typically use this with a magnetic bit holder. In action, the screw is driven in until it is just a bit below the surface of the paper, with the ring forming a just-right dimple for joint compound. You get four setters in a package, as the head will eventually wear from the natural cam-out action.
