Milwaukee self feeders...they go right through nails and hard wood, just dress them up with a file before they go totally dull and they will last..

Milwaukee self feed.
Also carry a Dremel and some of the small abrasive sharpening wheels for it. Just use the slowest speed and don't overheat.

Was not impressed with the 1 3/8" switch blade. Seemed to plug up quickly.

The big hole 2 9/16" is awesome, and so was the switch blade in the same size.

They are all disposable junk now. Once you hit a nail or screw they gouge so bad it never comes out.

For small holes I like the Lenox bits. For 1.5 and 2" pipe Milwaukee self feed

A general contractor I do work for gave me one of these kits, they work great in the impact gun. For bigger holes I use the switchblade.
