Hi I am Bob Schmidt with Home Remodel Workshop. I spend a lot of my time sitting right here in front of this computer reading the comments that you put up on my video. And every once in a while a come across one on an existing video that makes perfectly valid points. I want to discuss anchoring drywall video with you, and we will see what we got.
About four months ago, 352 SYSCO 98 station wrote me and said, “They do so countersink bits like a buck of piece.? And I did check in to that and I found them. Now they want a buck of piece that are a little bit more, but still that the whole idea was there and I am going to show that in this video. But also another message I got was from britonic7 about three weeks ago and it says “get up, get a drywall power drill. Even if you are doing a room, they are so nice and fast.”
Here is the countersink bit that he was referring to. I bought this for a couple of dollars. I have bigger packages with more of a minute that we're a little bit less expensive. But basically what it is is something that's fits in your variable speed drill for setting counter, for setting screws and dry wall to the proper depth. It is disposable it does wear down much probably why there kind of inexpensive.
Here is the Dewalt screw gun that the other messenger was trying to tell us about. It is a screw gun that specifically designed to install dry wall. It has a clutch driven head that if you turn this, it makes adjustments from setting the screw to different depths and different size screws in the whole nine yards. Now this is a fairly inexpensive screw gun that I purchased here, it was about a hundred dollars. It has only 6.3 amp loader on it, which for a home owner, would probably more than enough than you would need. But what I am trying to say, in my original video, was to spend a hundred dollars on a screw gun for one project; one project only seems to be a little excessive. Now, if you have future projects plan where you are going to renovate more rooms and you are going to console a deck that requires screwing down then may be it is worth the investment. But let us go ahead and take a look at the counter sink bit down stairs and take a look and see how it works.
The guy that sent me the message was taking about this bit right here. It is a conical shape bit, this one is offered by Dewalt but I am sure there are other ones offered. It is called for dry wall screw center. Eventually this bit on the inside will wear down and basically it fits in a variable speed drill, so that you cheat those screws in to just exactly the right depth before it jumps off the top of that tip. But what I recommend you do is use the magnetize extension on your variable speed drill. Go ahead and take and take your conical screws center attachment and stick in there, and that will help magnetize it, so that when you put that screw, it has a less tendency to fall out.
Go ahead and put it to where your stands going to be. Using your variable speed, drive it in slowly. Run it down until you hear it start popping like that and stop. What this bit is designed to do is to go ahead to set that screwed just bellow the surface but not to deep, so that when you slide the hammer over like you are going to be sliding mud over it. Here it does not make any ticking sound. This one is ready to finish with dry wall. Now in my original anchoring dry wall video, basically what I said was, is to just use the variable speed of your drill to go ahead and set that screw to just below the surface. But something that apparently a lot of people has a hard time with. So may be the investment of a couple of dollars is worth it even if you are doing a small project such as a patch or even one room. To go ahead and get one this dudes, and may be that will help you out with the project.
My name Bob Schmidt I am with Home Remodel Workshop. Check out our original video if none of this makes sense to you and I will catch you on the next one, thanks.
