    Driver vs impact 2 different tools. For cabinet work a powerful driver is what you need. An impact really is more for loosening fasteners rather than tightening fasteners.

    Understand and yep definitely two different tools, But for me I used a drill to drive screws for many many years mainly cuz I didn’t have a little impact. When I finally got one I rarely use a drill to drive anymore, I’ve found an impact takes less effort and rarely strips out even a Phillips head. With a drill I used to strip out a Phillips head too often, I think a lot of it depends on what exactly yer working on too. And the noise doesn’t bother me but of course I don’t do it everyday either….Just sayin 🙂

    You guys need to ditch the phillips and go with Robertson lol.

    Indeed, I try every chance I get Not to use them. In fact, Anything else but them lol

    Not to be confused with the American square head that’s designed to cam out

    Although Torx screws are the best these days

    The torx are not the ones use on the steel tracks where they are pumping out 2 to 3 houses a day. It’s the Wangner that is the best for not stripping out. It is not a DYI screw and is not sold in in any DYI shop. It’s used where serious production is going on.

    Those are the new LOX screws, right? Have they gotten off Hawaii yet? I thought they were still a startup sending to contractors to get market penetration and traction

    EDIT: I stand corrected. Home Depot sells them now

    Never seen those before. Better than Torx for not stripping? I really like the Torx for that. Don’t miss square head Robertsons at all, although I do still use them, I opt for GRK type Torx where I can now.

    #550602

    Looks like they can handle more torque going in than coming out, but I suppose that’s a not a problem most of the time.

    The Lox head is designed for max torque with 12 points of contact it also maximizes bit life with a designed tight fit of the bit to the head.

    Don’t know, I have not seen them, mind you I have boxes of screws right now, that will last till the end of the year, after that, I will be restocking.
    I will try to get out to the HD later this week. And I will also check the big reno depot my way.

    What is a PS42

    The PS42 is Bosch’s new 12V brushless impact driver. Which means it has the chuck for hex drive bits.
