Install Screws in Close Quarters

Using a socket wrench with a screwdriver drill bit to tighten screws Recently, when attaching a solid-wood top to a project, I had to reach in through a tight space to tighten screws. There wasn't enough clearance to use a cordless drill or a screwdriver, but I remembered that screwdriver bits from my drill fit exactly into a ¼″ socket. I mounted the bit on the socket wrench and easily tightened the screws.

Have a nice weekend,
