Hi. It's hard to determine exactly what all these bits are for by just looking at the photo. there is a list of bit uses on the webpage.
Although I do not know this product personally, in my experience, these "mixed-type" drill kits are usually of cheap quality and, unless you're an extremely occasional user, will not last any sort of long term distance. They blunt very easily and yo will be constantly forking out for replacements.
In my opinion, the best thing to do is to determine exactly what it is that you want to drill and go out and buy a good quality set of bits specifically for drilling that material. It might cost you $50 or so for a kit of a dozen drill bits, but this will pay for itself over the years.
You'll also need to learn how to drill the material correctly to maximise the life of the drill bit (and the drill).
That's my suggestion and opinion. There's no substitute for quality!
Regards, Myles

Don't know how to attach a screw on to my corded Skil 3/s drill. Is there a special bit for this purpose?


Hi auntygamma,

Welcome to fixya!

Yes, you need to use a bit with all drills. They come in different sizes and shapes. If you don't have any bits to put into your drill, an all purpose kit would be nice to have. You can find them at your local hardware store or online.

Check out this webpage: http://www.toolup.com/dewalt_dw2163_37-piece-screwdriving-set-with-tough-case.aspx

Copy and paste this entire web address into your browser and a page with one of the kits on it will open up for you. You don't have to buy a kit with lots of bits, you can pick up just one or two bits that you would use the most at the hardware store. The most used bits would be the #1 and #2 Phillips bits and a couple of different sizes of flat bladed bits. A few drill bits might come in handy too.

The drill that you have has a keyless chuck. This means you don't need any special tools to put in a bit or change one. If you look at the chuck, you'll see that the ridged part has two sections. If you hold the back section with your left hand, you can turn the front section to either open the chuck or close it to put bits in.

I don't know if this was clear or not, but if you have any problems or more questions about this, please be sure to reply back. I'll be glad to help you.

Thanks,
Handie Andie

Injector bolt sheered on no. 4 cyl


There's a couple of tools that make bolt extraction a little easier. The first one I would try is a reverse drill bit. A reverse drill bit looks just like a standard drill bit but it drills in a counterclockwise direction instead of clockwise. If you start drilling into the center of the bolt, it will drill partially into the bolt and at some point, the tip of the bit should grab onto the bolt and twist it out since it's going in the same direction you would twist it to loosen the bolt. Sometimes, if the bolt has been torqued down too tight, a reverse drill bit won't work. If that's the case, keep drilling the hole in the center of the bolt with the reverse drill bit until you've gone about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch deep. Then try using an easy out to extract the bolt. An easy out looks kind of like a tapered drill bit. I've shown a picture of one below. (You can buy a kit that has both easy outs and reverse drill bits) Choose the right size easy out for the size of hole you just drilled. The tip of the easy out should go partially into the hole, just enough to grab onto the bolt as you twist it counterclockwise. With the easy out in the hole, put a wrench or socket on the end of it, push down hard and twist counterclockwise. That should hopefully extract the bolt.

I have a 2000 honda 3.0 v6 accord and i have a code reading of P0401. I changed the EGR valve and I am still getting the same reading. What else do I need to check and do I need to run some type of cleaner...


On your model car you have to replace to EGR valve and clean the ERG port. To clean the port you have to remove intake maniflod. Use a drill bit and drill the build up out. Don't drill any metal, just the carbon build up. Honda make a kit for this repair, but you got to buy the EGR kit and the drill bit kit. Most people just replace the EGR valave and clean the port. See picture below on where EGR port is located(right side picture).
good luck

I am using a powerbase xtreme cordless drill diver kit and cannot fit the wood drill bits onto the drill. I have tryed fiddling with the settings and such but cannot find a way. Please help


Refer to the picture shown in the link below--- http://mydeco.com/p/powerbase-xtreme-cordless-hammer-drill-kit-18v/GB000024EPS6TLCLTKLEGSM4VU6S7ICXK7PGDYPU/
The very left-hand end of the drill is the drill chuck. There are three "jaws" protruding from the left-most end. To open the jaws grasp the large black collar with one hand and the the smaller silver collar just behind it with the other hand. Twist these two collars in opposite directions. You have to twist pretty hard. If they won't move, then try the other direction. Once they start to move they will move easily and you will see that the the three jaws begin to separate. Keep going until the jaws have separated enough to insert the wood drill bit, insert the bit, then tighten - good and tight! Good luck.

When using my panasonic 12v ey6409 drill there are sparks and smoke coming out at the rear, should I be concerned.


the tool with the brake will throw some sparks when it creates the short to stop rotation, but the SMOKE is an indication of a burnt motor and yes you should be concerned. Do you smell a burning odor when running if so the motor will soon fail.

The drill bit came out of my xrp 12v dewalt drill. How do I get it back in? Is it locked?


I hope I am understanding your question properly, if not, leave a comment. This drill *** a "keyless" chuck. If you look down into where the drill bit goes, there are metal pieces inside the black nose of the tool. Those metal parts are what holds the bit into place. The drill bit slides into the hole at the front of the drill (where it fell out from), Put the drill bit back in and then grasp the black tip (right below where you put the drill bit in). Directly underneath where you put your first hand, hold onto the piece directly below the upper part. Turn the top piece right and left and it tightens or loosens the mechanism that holds the bit in place. Give it a firm turn to make sure it is tight.
