[Home Depot] 24.88 Milwaukee Tool Shockwave Impact Bit Set (24-Piece) no shorties

Not the correct description. Seems like a pricing error.

yeah the description doesn't match, even milwaukee got it wrong, their site says its 29 pcs but they have a pic for a 24pc.

https://www.milwaukeetool.ca/Products/A ... 9#sp-specs


I'm not really sure if this is a good deal though, i guess for someone who uses them all day every day it might be.


EDIT: just found this 70 piece for $50, so 3x (ish) the bits at 2x the price, seems better value to me

I'm a DIY guy that works in an office. I hate using the little bits with adaptors and will never need to buy square headed bits again.

I just make sure to always buy square headed screws when it's not included.

call it Robertson to an american and they'll look at you sideways, they call it square because they don't want to admit it's a Canadian invention, also the name Robertson is a brand name which is trademarked, so they cant market them as Robertson.

Just be aware that if it isn't a Robertson, it isn't actually a 'Robertson'. All other companies make 'squares', which are slightly different and some of them are prone to rounding (usually the screw head recess itself).

EDIT: Fixed some typos.

Quick FIY:

Milwaukee makes great tools. But their bits (not including drilling bits) are total and utter garbage. It isn't a matter of tradeoff or workload, It's an actual DO NOT BUY when it comes to these.

I cannot speak for their drilling bits though.
