I have this bit extension for drills that accepts hexagonal bits…the beauty of this particular piece is that it possesses a sleeve which slides up towards the point of a screw, preventing it from wobbling when starting the threads. I’m certain you may have seen them. I happen to have had this particular one for decades.
The issue: I’d love to pick another one or two up but cannot find them because I’m not certain what the correct terminology is for it. Anyone have any ideas?
I love this thing…absolutely love it. It’s awesome in so many ways. I also like it for electrical work when needing to reach inside of deeper, metallic junction boxes and running self tapping 5/16” hex head screws into trusses, etc; The sleeve slides up alongside my magnetized 5/16” bit and snugs it up, preventing it from wobbling…therefore giving me the rigidity and anti-wobble I need to start the screws. Very nice.
Looking appropriate name.
