screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

Didn't find a thread, so sorry for a new one.

I have screw driver attachments and they fit my drilling machine perfectly. They also sit tight ..... and turn.
But it's not working to drill in screws?! And no, I did not set it on hammer/stone-walls.

To me it's totally logic that this should work. What am I missing?

The wood I'm working on is really hard and it's a killer job by hand.

yes.

So you agree, it should work, right?

Are you sure the bits don't slip?

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

Sounds like you need to pre-drill the holes for the screws.

Not entirely, no. But quite sure.

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

What exactly is happening?

Is the drill/driver motor not powerful enough?

Does it have a clutch? maybe you need to turn it up..

Does it have a switch between 1+2, drive/drill? Put it on number 1 to drive screws.

Do the bits spin in the screw head?

Maybe you have the wrong bit - number 1 kreuz instead of number 2, for example.

hmm..

No, I meant if you're sure that the bit is fixed well in the drill.

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

photo of the whole setup and screw might help

you could have slipping at any point in the chain

tip: just invest in an impact driver. i wish i'd bought mine earlier!

Machine might not be powerful enough or it's broken, bit might be wrong size, machine might not have speed control, screws might be wrong type, Bitholder might be worn off, etc.. etc...

The more info you give, the better our answer

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

I've had difficulty drilling a screw into wood before and found that first hammering a small (not deep) nail hole into the wood helps. Then put the point of the screw into the nail hole and begin to drill it in.

It makes a lot of noise but doesn't drill the screw in.
The motor beat absolutely everything so far.
It has a "Drehzahlregulator" - should I put that on low? (It's on top setting now - I'm Aries after all. )
They kind of must be spinning in the screw head or the screws would go in, no?
Yeah, could be. I take the one that gets a grip on the screw and put that on.

The Drehzahlregulierung could be the thing. Maybe it needs to be slower. I have to try that tomorrow - it's after 19.00h, TIS.
The motor can't be it, it takes more power to drill holes into concrete than screwing a screw into wood.

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

Low rpm, and higher torque range. Right bit for the screw.

I've never had trouble with any of the various drills I've had over the years.

Yes. As far as I can judge that it sits tightly

That would be a Schlagschrauber in German. So I should have set the machine on hammering/stone walls?

That takes special screw, right? And doesn't really screw them in but bolts them in?

Edit: When I study this, I should set the "Drehmoment" on highest on my machine.
What do you suggest then? (Cheap, I don't use these things daily).

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

Are you using a chuck key to tighten the driver into the chuck? If you donít understand what Iím asking then that is likely your problem.

what's the difference between rpm and torque range? Seems the same to me?
I think my drill doesn't have enough setting options.

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

So, if I summarize:
Yes, principally this works.
Setting on hammer-drilling? (really? Or did I get that wrong, it doesn't sound right really)
Setting on low rpm (makes sense).

I'll get a new set of screw-driver attachment tomorrow to make sure they're not worn out.

I'll have to redo the work of today, it's a mess - not in properly, can't get it out easily.

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

Mine has screw levels 1-9, then drill, then hammer..

What does yours have?

Normal screwing is level 4 or so.

Mine is an old one (works super on walls) has only screwing - or only drilling? - and hammering. Can set rpm, left and right. That's it. No levels.

edit: drilling

Re: screw driver attachment on drilling machine?

You've still not really described what's actually happening. Is the drill (machine) turning? Is the screwdriver bit turning? Is it just jumping out of the screw head itself? Is the screw turning but not penetrating?

I'm frankly struggling to work out your problem, from what you've said so far.
