If you don’t own one you don’t know what you’re missing. Whenever I use it people ask what it is and ask where they can get one.
This product is great. I don’t know how I lived without it.

It seemed like a good idea ... and it is!
I was purchasing some Insty tapered drill bits with countersink attachments that I needed for a project .In order to get my order expensive enough to qualify for free shipping, I was looking for something inexpensive to add. So, I added this sleeve without really having any idea of its purpose! When it arrived with the bits, I honestly had no idea "which end is up" or how to use it. So, I did some searching online, and finally learned.

The sleeve essentially means that if you are drilling countersunk holes and wish to insert screws as you go (say in order to hold a back panel in place) you do not need two expensive power drills. The sleeve quickly snaps right over (and encloses) the drill bit and countersink stop. The tip of the sleeve magnetically holds a screwdriver bit. So, you easily can switch between drilling and screwing without having to manipulate the chuck and with only a single power drill.. A $10 Insty sleeve is way cheaper than buying two drills, and frankly, is is less to lug around and more convenient to use. I now wonder how I managed to struggle along without it.

Good tool
Great product. Little pricey. Make sure to tighten up all the allen screws before using because they will loosen up, believe me, I own 4 of them.

one of the most helpful tools I own
one of the most helpful tools I own...the slip off/on sink and bit make difficult tasks, especially high on a ladder, easy and fast.
Don't leave home, without it...

Well made, a little tight fitting to the bit, but it works well.

Great idea that could use some tweaking
Overall I would say that this set is well thought out in its basic design. I have read a lot of reviews that complain about the case. Well I bought the set for the tools not the luggage. So, I can't see how that effects the use of the tool. The issue I do have is getting the drill bit tightened enough to not turn when drilling in pressure treated or hardwood lumber. Seems to work fine a much higher percentage of the time in pine. BUT, that being said, when the drill bit doesn't spin in the countersink it is such a time saver. I'll keep wrestling with the bit tightening issue because when it works it works great. So Rockler guys-maybe a little adjustment to bit tightening set up would be a good idea.

I would not recommend this tool for driving longer screws into hard woods with a ratcheting screw gun . The tapered countersink bit jammed into the screw driver sleeve , which is made of aluminum . I was unable to remove it even with the help of pliers and a vice . So I was done for the day on that project . If that sleeve were made out of a much harder material it would be worth the purchase price of the set .

Looking for the convenience of switching between drill bit and driver quickly. Buying a second drill is $100 or more. For $10 this is worth a try.
Katherine S on Apr 21, 2019
Being able to slide sleeve over bit and drive the screw after drilling the counter sink saves me from using two different drills or changing out the bits
Rick on Feb 27, 2019
A great tool to help you easily move from one task to another. As with all tickler products great quality.

Is this drive extension compatible with Insty Bit Countersink Set 82701? That is an original set of Insty Bit countersinks from years ago that are still working well. Thanks.
Greg P on Jan 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, the drive extension is not compatible with the countersinks. The depth collar on the countersink interferes with the extension.
Will this sleeve work with the insty bit G2575 pilot countersink set? I prefer straight bits rather than the tapered bits.
Tom S on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't think so. This Rockler sleeve is designed to fit Rockler centering and pilot bits. The G2575 doesn't appear to have the necessary 7-sided nut at the base of the bit (necessary to prevent sleeve from just spinning). Also, the sleeve is designed to slide over the top of the bit, so I think only if the G2575 matches the Rockler bits (in size and shape) would it work with this sleeve.
