18-piece Rockler/Insty-Drive self-centering and countersink set lets you convert from drilling and countersinking to installing perfectly centered hinge screws in a matter of seconds - without re-chucking any bits! The 18-Piece set includes #6, #8 and #10 HSS 2-flute tapered hex shank bits with 4-flute countersinks; #6, #8 and #10 hex shank HSS self-centering bits; Rockler's Insty-Driver; 10 of the most popular drive bits; and a nylon pouch with belt loop.
- Switch from drilling to driving instantly!
- Just drill the pilot hole, slip on the Insty-Driver and drive home the screws.
- Components are engineered to meet the highest standards for use in industrial applications.
- All Rockler/Insty-Drive bits are precision-ground high speed steel that resist wear and overheating, thus keeping a sharp edge longer.
- Bits can be resharpened easily on a bench grinder.
- Inluded self-centering bits ensure accurate hinge and hardware installation every time.
- Countersink has a 4 flute design for smooth, clean holes that do not require sanding.
- Taper drill bit is adjustable to match length of screw and is held with 1 or 2 hex set screws.
How the Rockler/Insty-Drive System Works:
- Step 1: Drill the pilot hole with the countersink bits or the self-centering bits, which both have a hex shank to prevent slipping.
- Step 2: Slip on the Rockler Insty-Driver which fits over Rockler countersink and self-centering bits. Magnetic tip holds all 1/4'' style insert bits and screws.
- Step 3: Drive home the screws. Then slip off the Insty-Driver and do it again. You'll get fast and accurate hardware installation every time!

I love this set!I've purchased a quick change drill and bit setup something like this from another manufacturer and was terribly disappointed in it's quality and stability. I've also owned several tapering-countersink sets before that burn up and loose their sharpness, and usefulness almost out of the package.This kit from Rockler has become my go-to kit. The quick change setup is more stable than the other ones I've had and the tapered drill bits are of a quality that is so much greater than any I've ever used, there really is no comparison.On a tight budget, I bought cheaper sets and got just that... cheaper sets! I would've saved more money and aggravation if I would've spent the little bit extra up front for this better quality set in the first place.Thank you Rockler!

I just finished a set of bunk beds using this product and found it to be a lot more useful and handy than I thought it would be (I deliberated for a while before purchasing). All of the components are made well, except that the #8 countersink bit often slipped back while drilling despite the fact that I tightened both set screws very firmly. This is potentially ruinous to a project, and definitely annoying. Also, it's not a very well designed case.

Fabulous product! I am a beginner and can't afford the really expensive stuff. I even had to wait for this to go on sale. I think the design of the pilot bit, with a built in adjustable depth collar is a great feature. The self centering bits work very well. As usual however, there was no documentation. I found out by accident that the counter bore adjusts for depth of drill. Also, as an added bonus, I found the third pilot bit already inserted in the driver assembly. The storage is average. You have to use every other holder to store the bits, and centering bits. Why not just use fewer retainers, and spread out their spacing. Minor issue. Overall, another great value from Rockler.

The set came in very handy for hanging some cabinet for a set of build-in shelves I am making. The drill bits and countersinks seem sharp. However, the quality of the driver bits seems very poor. I've broken one of the Philips bits and and of the slotted bits trying to back out a screw with my 12V cordless driver - the bits sheared in half. I understand the driver has a lot of torque, but expected the bits not to break so easily. Also, the hex screw holding the countersink on the bits seems to come loose fairly easily, causing the bit to spin while the countersink stops. Note: this was drilling into maple, so pretty hard stuff.

I'm in the middle of building a set of built-in bookshelves 24' long by 8' tall for a Pastor's Study. This drive set is an absolute joy to have especially given the quantity of screws that I'm using in assembling the bookcases. Add to it the ability to slip on the screwdriver. It works so well I went back and purchased the #5 and #12 pilot/shank/countersink bits. The next project at the church will involve using the self-centering bits.
