I don't know anything about that one. I'd want to see a link to the mfr. page including specifications, price and other detailed information, or possibly a written review (I normally won't spend time watching videos). From a quick glance it appears to be corded and for the last 30 years or so I've only used cordless models, so that is what I would recommend: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Ind ... ial/552750

You are not understanding me a 1/4 hold on the bit holder will not work with these bits. I am looking for a bit holder that has a about a 4mm hole and a shank 1/4 to fix the dewalt screwdriver.

I don't know if these one of these bit holder will fix these screw bits....
the shaft of these bits are not 1/4 so they will not fix into the dewalt screwdriver
https://www.google.com/search?q=4mm+bit ... 00&bih=769

I hate to buy something online and it don't work... and I can't find them in any hardware store. I try home depot I try ace hardware and I also try lowes and menards.

if you go to to this link

go here and you know what I am talking about the bits are smaller then 1/4
I have this kit but the screwdriver is to slow
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hyper-Tough- ... t/45715100

then click on here


https://www.google.com/search?q=4mm+bit ... 00&bih=769

Then let me know what you think I should do.

see below how small the end are they won't fix in a 1/4 bit adapter or in the dewalt screwdriver. so what adapter would i need to get so I can use these bits in the dewalt screwdriver.

If your screwdriver won't accept standard bits or bit holders then I recommend you get one that does. See my previous posts above for recommendations. Scott.

What do you think of this kit

https://www.ifixit.com/Store/Tools/64-B ... F145-299-1

it has a 1/4 to 4mm adapter in this kit. I hate to buy another kit just to have this adapter so I can use it on my dewalt screwdriver.

I don't have any experience with non-standard drivers and bit sets so I don't know what would work with the bits you have now. Best to start over with more standard tools. I personally use several older Black & Decker drivers and drill/drivers with a number of different bit sets that I've accumulated over the years. Scott.

I got it you saying that small laptop screws are as the same size as desktop screws am i right. What size screw-bit did you used on the upgrading and repairing laptop 2nd edition in the video when taking out the keyboard hard drive and the cd-rom drive.......

What is your version on standard tools.


I order that bit to give this company a chance. and see how things go.
weeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The screws used in laptops are generally much smaller than those used in desktops.

I believe I used PH0 or PH1 bits, probably from Wiha. I thought you were talking about the end of the bit that fits into the tool vs. the end that fits into the screw. In that case using standard bits means they fit in the standard tools. The screw heads vary among laptops so you need to use the correct sized bit to fit the screw you are trying to remove. Scott.

I am talking about the the small bits like the ph0 and the ph1 and so on and the other end to fit into the 1/4 into the tool like that dewalt I told you that i have. That is why I was looking for a Micro Bit to 1/4" Drive Insert Bit Adapter. Do they make micro screw bits like PH0 AND PH1 AND SO ON that is a 1/4 drive the part that fix into the tool.

That is why I show you the photo of bits that I have the part that go into the tool is small 4mm and that won't fix into the tool.....

I hope you now understand what I am trying to tell you the base of the screw bits are small that is why I was looking for a 1/4 adapter like the one I told you I older From wiha. you can see it on the link in my last post... https://www.wihatools.com/tech-tools/mi ... it-adapter I am not talking about the size of the screw bits I am talking about the other end of the bit that go into the tool itself 4mm to a 1/4 bit adapter.

I use this one: https://www.wihatools.com/bits/bit-sets ... bit-holder

This also allows me to disassemble hard drives for destructive purposes (as well as to get the magnets), power supplies and other devices assembled with security screws. Let me know what you choose and why. Scott.

A given bit can drive any type of screw with a matching head: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_screw_drives

You'll find definitions for those (and many other) terms in the dictionary. See the following example: Precision

I am going to stay with the jewelry screwdriver bits kit that will fix into my adapter that I order from wiha and it fix into my 1/4 dewalt screwdriver. and leave the other bigger stander drywall bits for desktop computers.

thanks.
