Probably very dumb question. Are drill specific brand specific? Or, can I use these for let's say Dewalt tools?

These bits would work in any 1/4" hex bit chuck - they're universal.

Milwaukee makes quality bits.

They aren't brand-specific. You can use them with any drill. All bits have a 1/4” hex shank and are able to fit into keyed, keyless, or 1/4” (6.35mm) hex drive chucks.

I believe it is impact rated. Did I miss something?

i think you would do a better job telling people to buy Canadian without the sarcasm.

It's definitely great to support Canadian companies, when practicable

That being said, my closest HH is a much further drive than the closest HD, and also has very limited weekday hours for a hardware store (9 - 6?!)

Milwaukee's impact rated bits have always been black from what I've seen. The description on HH's site does not match that on Milwaukee's site for the same part # (doesn't mention impact). Maybe HH used the wrong description?

Correct. Milwaukee website did not mention impact rated.

The description on HD website is the same as HH’s.

Impact-rated, not impact rated.

Guys, it's 42 bits for $12. These aren't your daily driver. It's for that odd time you need a random P3 bit to drive a tapcon.

Hey guys going to weigh in here as I’m a pretty heavy user of bits.

I think the best bit set I have is a Milwaukee 60 or something piece set for 30 dollars. What you’re looking for is AS MANY HEX LOCKERS as possible. The other ones are what I call filler bits so brands can up their marketing “bit count”. I personally toss these fillers in a bin and use them as a last resort if I really run out.

I personally like the shockwave series of Milwaukee and I believe they are one the the only brands out there still making them in the US.

Bits will break don’t get me wrong, but I’ve done jobs where I’ve melted up to 5 S2/S3 Mikita bits and I’ve done similar jobs where I’ve only used maybe 2 of the Milwaukee ones. Worn bits will just strip your screws and it sucks to have one not drive all the way through and completely stripped (get a hammer out)

So just my 2 cents but look for sets around 30 dollars that have as little filler bits as possible. Longer bits are also valuable and more rare. I think my last set also included 2 sockets and 4 quick change sockets so even better.

What daily driver set doesn't include a p3? I'm with the user above here. Get an impact rated shockwave set that includes more useful bits that will actually last. Quality over quantity.

Buy a good 5-pack of Phillips and square #2. That does 99% of what anyone in Canada will use.

Worrying if your slotted #10 is "impact-rated" or not is a complete waste of time.

Or, just skip the junk set altogether and get this

Double the price, but you get a quality set that actually lasts, with additional useful bits to boot.

I'm not worried about non-impact rated throwaway sets because I don't buy them.

Have the same dilemma with Klein/Milwaukee Face With Tears Of Joy. Then I remember that neither sponsors me to use them, so I let my wallet decide
