Driving stainless-steel screws with an ordinary bit risks undermining their corrosion resistance, as it can transfer carbon-steel particles that start the spread of rust.
These bits are specially treated stainless steel, hardened to give the tips durability comparable to carbon steel but with a softer ductile neck that resists breakage when subjected to high torque.
All are 25mm (1") long with accurately ground slot, Phillips, square-recess or Torx drives. The Torx bits have a unique tip geometry that allows the bit to wedge in the recess of a fastener for a firm hold, making it easier to install or remove the fastener.
We also offer a stainless-steel holder for use with any stainless-steel bit that has a 1/4" hex shank. Bits lock in the holder with a light push; slide the locking sleeve forward and the bit pops up, where it is held by a magnet, ready for removal. The 2" long holder has a grooved shank to fit quick-change as well as regular chucks.
Offered individually or as a set of eleven bits plus the holder.
