A drill uses a 'bit' to drill a hole. a screwgun uses a 'tip' (usually phillips or flathead) to put in or remove a screw

Can't get rigid zrr8660 screwgun to sink screw more than half way.


Some screwguns have a torque adjustment that slips when adjusted too light. The strongest setting usually has a symbol of a drill bit. Have you tried putting the screw into another piece of wood? If you are going into a very dense wood you may have to predrill hole.

When using the drywall screwgun the drill bit comes out and sticks in the screw after every time I drive in a screw. Why doesn't the bit stay in place in the drill? Why does it come out and stick to...


Because the tip is brand new or you don't have a magnetic ti. Try tilting the gun a little sideways before you pull it away from the screw. Sorta like tilting a sweating glass a little bit before you lift it off of a coaster so that the coaster doesn't stick to the bottom of the glass.

How to remove the chuck?


open the chuck fully and it shoudl have a screw inside. Unscrew it, but be carefull, these screws are usually reversed - to uncsrew, rotate it clockwise. Once done, put allen key into chuck (short side in), fasten the chuck to hold allen key well and hit the key with hammer - counterclockwise direction. You might want to verify this procedure with someone else as I have no experience with Dewalt, but this way it works for Makita, Metabo, Narex, ... then why not for Dewalt? Juraj

Cord got cut on my dewalt screwgun. dont know how to rewire to the trigger


Have you removed the old cord yet, if not make a crib sheet showing where the wires go. If the wires push into the switch use a staple and bend one of the long ends and push into hole and when pushing gently pull the cord wire out. Let me know if you need any other help

How is a driver different from a drill? What


Hello, W/D here.

A very good question......A drill holds a bit and rotates it at a given speed. This speed can be variable, allowing the speed of the drill bit to be better matched to the material being drilled. The output from the drill motor goes directly to the chuck, and the power is directly applied to the drill bit. Some drills can generate a tremendous amount of direct torque, due to the nature of their gearing. Most of the better drills have planetary gears in them.
A driver rotates like a drill, but is designed to apply torque to a driving bit, and cause a fastener to be placed by the driver. The main difference between a drill and a driver is that a driver has an adjustable clutch, allowing the amount of torque being applied to a fitting to be preset. A good example of this would be for driving wood screws. You would dial in the torque setting that you want the driver to quit driving the screw. You don't want to drive the screw to China, you want to drive it flush. A maximum torque setting "locks" the clutch, and the fitting will be driven as far as it can go (This is about as close to being called a drill as a driver will ever get). A clutch setting midway might be just right for driving the same fitting into oak, and a setting at less than that might be just right for pine. The torque clutch effectively sets a kick out torque for the driver. When the torque applied matches the torque set on the driver, the clutch "slips", and no further driving action can occur.
Most modern battery powered drills incorporate a torque clutch between the motor and the chuck so that the tool can be operated as a drill (with the torque setting at "max") or as a driver (with the torque setting at less than max) some electric tools are configured as both, but usually they are different. For the money, a good battery powered drill/driver with a clutch offers more versatility, in my opinion.
Best regards, --W/D--
