Get quick-change access to all those old bits!
Didn't want to get rid of (or put up with) all my old drill bits. Have since grown accustomed to quick change bits. But as my quick change bits break, was wanting to put the older bits to use without loss in productivity. Enter Rockler! All of Home Depot and Lowe's didn't carry this item (hoping to sell me more new bits). Thanks Rockler. A great value, and so far very user-friendly and durable. -Nick

I’m glad someone thought of this. I’ve needed these for a long time. I didn’t want to buy a new set of bits just to get the hex drive and now I don’t have to. Just wish they went to 1/2”.

Changeable bits
I have tossed so many of the other style, once you break the bit their no good, these save a lot of money being able to put a new bit in them.

I use them regularly in my 12 volt impact driver for drill bits and taps from my tap and die sets. Grind a small flat spot on the side of the bit or tap where the set screw contacts, to help keep it from spinning in the adapter. I use them mostly drilling steel or brass and some wood.

Great set of adaptors
I like the quick change feature when mounting hinges and other hard ware on cabinetry.

Wish the would make the rest of the by 1/64" set.

I had a set that was stolen. They are not commonly available at most hardware stores.

like the way you can replace the bits in thye bit holder

To save the effort of fumbling to center tiny drill bits.
Makes for faster changes with the quick change chuck.

I liked the reviews about Rockler tools. This is my first purchase of a Rockler tool. I'm hoping I can use these adapters with my WORX switch driver.

Stephen R on Apr 8, 2016
Thought it would come in handy, instead of buying long bits one at a time. I can use these adapters with bendable or straight extensions.

Should come in handy for round shank bits

Could not find good set of brad point hex shanked drill bits
Daniel A on Aug 22, 2015
Allow some versatility to use my regular bits. This one does not work at all. At least, I have not been able to figure how to fasten the bit to adapter, and the instruction is useless.

Are each of the seven adapters made specifically for each of the corresponding fraction bits? You know, will ONLY a 1/16" bit fit into the 1/16" adapter (and a 3/32" bit NOT fit into the 1/16" adapter) etc.?
Hippy on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are made for the specified bits only.
Will this work with left hand drill bits, or will it unscrew somhow?
Stuart F on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will work fine,
Does the Allen wrench in picture go into this? And turn it into an automatic drill bit Allen wrench?
