Phillips #2 Standard Drywall Bits Pack of 5
Dry Wall Bits
Great little bits that work really well and avoid over screwing into the plasterboard and mean you can do the job quicker, brilliant. Wish I'd have known about these long ago, they would have saved me a lot of time.

useful bit for plasterboard!
these bits take a little bit of getting used to. I used them with an impact driver. Key is not to push when driving in the screws then the bit spins out leaving the screw head recessed the perfect amount. The bit can fall out the driver sometimes but they are great value. Didnt really need 5 so gave 2 away to my dad and a mate!

Need adjusting before use
These work great when they are set to the correct depth, out of the bag the bit sticks out too much so the screw punches through the skin of the board. I stuck one in the vice with the screwdriver pointing up, put a screw on the end of it and tapped it down a bit with a hammer. It was a bit trial and error to get the correct depth but once its done it works a treat!

Who ever invented these should get a medal! My heart sank when I realised that, having bought some drywall screws, I'd have to get some PH driver bits as well as the PZs I usually use. But then I found these babies in the SF catalogue and haven't looked back. Basically, they prevent you screwing the screw too far into the plasterboard, which can crack it or cause it to come loose. It's a simple trick but one which makes screwing in hundreds and hundreds of drywall screws, if not actually a pleasure, then much less of a chore.
If you're hanging some plasterboard then these bargain items (they come in packs of five so buy a couple) are an essential accessory.
