The best idea is to simply experiment. Adjust the clutch to a lower setting. Drive some screws through the material into a stud to see how deep the screw is driven and adjust each subsequent attempt accordingly. The screw should finish just deep enough to be filled for sanding and painting. If the screw doesn't seat deep enough you wont be able to patch or fill to cover the screw. Over tightening can actually weaken the effect of the screw and be less effective at securing the panel.

The setting will vary as the battery runs down but I would start at about 4 and see if that will just barely sink the head of the screw below the surface of the rock. Adjust up or down as neede.The age and type of material you are screwing into will also make a difference. Thank you.

Try using a magnet instead. Move the magnet back and forth against the wall, slowly... until it sticks to one of the ferrous screws hidden in the sheetrock. These hidden screws are holding the wall board/sheetrock onto a stud.
Magnets! Free stud finder! and no batteries to replace!

How to repatch small sheetrock holes in walls

Well here is a tip that im shure you will enjoy!
How to patch a hole in your wall !
Don,t worry about cutting from stud to stud so you have something to screw too, just cut out a piece of sheetrock alittle larger then your hole ,
Then take your cut sheetrock piece and put it over the hole!
Then take a pencil and trace the cut sheetrock over the hole
Then cut out the hole to the size of the traced piece of sheetrock

OK here comes the fun part: Take 2 larger wooden paint mixing sticks (you can get them at any paint store , sherwin williams,ben moore, home,depot , sears, wallmart, get the idea! and there always free so stock up for future holes,

Now take one stick and put it into the hole so that both top and bottom of the stick are equal lengths so that you can put 1 screw countersunk on both ends from the wall side ...what that screw is doing is making a secur backing for you to screw your cut piece of sheetrock to! ...but one is not enough so get that 2nd paint stick out and stick that also behind the wall and screw it from outside at top and bottom your ready to screw that piece of sheetrock to the painsticks ..after thats done just tape and spackle ...once you try this you will always use this technique ,,GUARANTEED!..good luck and happy repairs, glenn

How do you fix hole in sheetrock

Little holes... Spackle. Holes the size of a door knob, go to a "big box store" they have a repair kit, that makes things easy. But if it is a larger hole you will need to cut a matching piece of sheetrock to fit. Then tape and spackle and sand and repaint. If the hole is larger enough but is not big enough to involve one of the studs, then the "big box store" has some clips that will hold a piece of sheetrock suspended between the good and bad portions of the wall.

How do you install switch box supports

Requires wall box.
Put wires into box.
Set box in hole.
Slide long part of box support behind sheetrock as shown in image.
Center box support so it fits behind sheetrock above and below the box
Push box tight against sheetrock and fold flanges into box.
Install 2 box supports - one on each side of box.
Fold flanges very tight so box is not loose >> use pliers to tighten
Install switch or plug or wiring device

How dom i remove shelves that were put up with wood glue without taking half the wall with it?

If wood glue is adhered to a painted surface, and the paint is adhered to sheetrock ... you are not facing good news.

I painted and did sheetrock for years.
Here's how I'd handle the problem.

Use sharp utility knife and cut through the sheetrock paper around object that is glued.
Once the paper is cut, you can tear off glued item and it will remove as little of the wall as possible.

Next, but some sheetrock mud.
But not your usual type.
Get the powered bag that you mix with water.
They make 15 minute set up, and 45 minute, etc.
Don't buy paper drywall tape for this job.
Buy the fiberglass tape that looks like a screen.
Clean up you wall so it's smooth.
Use knife to cut a taper edge around each broken area of sheetrok >>> this will keep the edges down so they're not sticking up
Mix up the drywall mud so its like toothpaste.
Apply mud into wall damage.
Here's the trick ... do not build it up so you have to sand it off.
Keep it low.
Put the mud on the wall.
Push the tape into the mud.
It won't be perfect.
Smooth as much as possible using your 6" drywall knife.
Do the project in stages.
Let it dry.
Take your 6" mud knife and use it like a spatula to scrape down the high points.
Keep it low so you're not sanding.
Mix more mud.
Apply a THIN coat over repair.
Let it dry.
Scrape it again with the mud knife.

Bring a table lamp over to where you're working.
Put the table lamp up close to the wall so the light casts across the repair.
The light will let you see the high and low points in the repair
Keep floating mud in very THIN coats until the wall is smooth
Put a coat of paint over repair.
Use the light again to look for dips and weaves in the surface.
Smooth it out with the mud
Paint the wall.

If you get stuck in the project, answer back and I'll give words of encouragement.

How does the adjustable depth drywall bit work? The bit inside keeps spinning and does not drive screw into sheetrock?

It's not the tip, but the screw gun itself. The screw gun has a clutch on it that allows you to set the screw at different depths. You must adjust the screw gun to the desired depth. The deeper you want the screw to go, the less the clutch will slip.

What product should i use to put under my shower base before i set it. that would make the base feel more solid.

The foaming polyurethane in a can (usually referred to as "Great Stuff") is a really good solution here. Just spray it on the floor and quickly set your base, or if possible and the sheetrock is not on you can set the shower and reach in under it and foam

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction....

This type of vacuum is not designed to vacuum up sheetrock
dust or pieces of sheetrock. The dust from sheetrock is so fine it will clog the vacuum bag, filters and possible the motor

So change the bag, use an air hose to blow out the motor area and
the hoses make sure that air hose has in line filter to catch moisture
