Phillips head bit has disappeared from the universe?
Sorry if this is wrong sub-forum to post on...
Years ago I remember buying these phillips head bits that were perfect for sheet rock screws and similar sized phillips screws, and really smaller sizes as well. Never stripped out, super tight fit, no wobbling even. It fit really good down in the screw head, so much so that it would hold the screw on its own without magnetics (like a T25 might) and you could work one handed with your drill. It was awesome. I couldn't understand why anyone would buy anything but these bits - they outperformed everything. We had them all over the cabinet shop and I guess I took them for granted.
They are not complicated at all. Slightly smaller, maybe, than a standard number 2, but the key was the wings of the bit were rounded. Not kind of roundish either, I mean rounded. Often they were ribbed too. But the key was the head was slightly smaller so it bottoms in the screw head, but rounded so that the wings grip down deep as well as toward the top. It's really simple actually.
They seem to have disappeared from the universe. I have scrolled for almost an hour now on google looking at various phillips bit heads and it's not there. I can't find them at Home Depot, Lowe's, Ace Hardware...and I get strange looks from anyone I ask. I don't get it. I didn't dream this. I used these bits for years. Never bought anything but.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about or what happened to these perfect phillips head bits?
