Bits of advice

A bit in the sense of a tool is a mostly short, but always replaceable screwdriver blade with a special screw head profile at one end and a mostly hexagonal receptacle at the other end. The screw head profile is inserted into the screw to be rotated and the recording allows the insertion of the bits in a Bit holder, The bit holder can directly with a Cordless Screwdriverdriven or driven into a screwdriver handle, ratchet and other tools and driven therewith. The most common measure for the hexagon of the bits is 1/4 inch (6.35 mm). In addition, however, so-called mini bits are available with a size of 4 mm. The measure is determined by the distance between two opposite faces of the bits and is also called the key width.

Bits for hand and power tools are available in many different qualities, shapes and profiles, for example for slotted screws, Phillips screws or with hexagon for Allen screws and Torx. bits offer a number of advantages over conventional screwdrivers.

The optimal base material for bits is still a chrome-vanadium-steel alloy. For high quality bits, the base material is further coated with a titanium nitride (TiN) or a diamond coating to further enhance durability. The titanium nitride coating can be recognized by the golden yellow color of the bits. A diamond coating is relatively rough and increases the friction between bit and screw, so that a higher torque can be transmitted especially when working with slotted and Phillips screws.

Branded bits or cheap import

Despite the qualitative flaws, even cheap bits can do their job. However, only for a short time and optimally in conjunction with a hand tool. When used with a rechargeable screwdriver, screw head and bit are quickly unusable. If you only have to turn in a few screws once, you can reach for a cheap deal with a clear conscience. However, if you need or want to work with the bits over and over again and usually also use a cordless screwdriver, then the high-quality bits from the brand manufacturers are definitely recommended. In particular, the sets of the well-known German tool manufacturers. Although these cost significantly more, but the quality is so good that you can inherit the bits of a day.

A head that is too big or too small will damage both the bit and the screw head. If you have to work a lot with your bits, you should value a high quality of the bits. Even with the bits, as with virtually all tools, those who buy cheaply will buy twice.
