I’ve always be the type of guy that pulls out all the stops when the time feels right. From playing my hardest on the field during my days in the NFL, to flexing on all the other dudes in the bar with my killer dance moves, to building enormous handmade pizza peels for my future father-in-law, I’m no fan of subtlety. I like things done big, done right, and with no expense spared.
I review a lot of Milwaukee products and am consistently impressed with their durability and attention to detail. Milwaukee is the type of brand to, like myself, pull out all the stops and continuously blow you away with their next-level thinking. The Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Steel Driver Bits are no different, bringing me a product I can rely on to deliver the power I need for projects time and time again. I’m super jazzed to share my thoughts on these with you guys because I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do.
When I grabbed the Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Driver Bits, the first thing I noticed (you know, since I have eyes) is the carrying and storage case. The case is sturdy and can be thrown in my pocket if I’m working on a complex build in the shop and have my hands full. In that tiny pack is fifteen driver bit sizes designed to fit the most common bit applications -- I’ve yet to find a task for which these bits didn’t do the trick.
With how much I’m working on builds in my workshop, I’m no stranger to my bits stripping out. The Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Driver Bits have machined tips to reduce the likelihood of stripping over time. Additionally, Milwaukee threw in its proprietary Shock Zone geometry so that these bits can hold up to the shock of big-time builds. These two features lead to up to 30x longer life and the ability to absorb 3x more torque than other impact bits. The durability is also brought in part by a body made of custom alloy 76 steel. Coming from the city of steel myself, I know that material like this is no joke and is going to last for years and years (likewise with 6 Superbowl rings).
In other words, I’m going to have to think really hard to find a project that these bits won’t be able to handle -- and if you think of one, let me know.
It’s pretty plain and simple here. You’re getting a great product that you’ll likely find yourself using on a weekly, if not daily, basis. They’re gonna last through thick and thin and be able to bring the power you need. What more could you want?
Although I typically write about tools that are more specialized and expensive, I’m telling you you can’t go wrong with the Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Driver Bits. I don’t mind paying a little more for high-quality products that are going to last. The last set of driver bits I had constantly became stripped, leading to delays in my builds and constant trips to Home Depot. Like having a good vehicle, you want to be able to rely on your basic workshop tools. The Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Driver Bits are a new staple in my workshop that I know are going to be able to stand up to even my most serious builds.
