Question

What sort of screwdriver bit holder will fit these bits? Does Jamestown Distributors sell these?

Top Answer

YES THEY DO. I ORDERED A BIT FOR EACH OF A COUPLE OF SIZES AND KEEP THE BITS IN THE BOXES WITH THE SCREWS.

Answer

A portable drill works great

Answered on 04/04/2013 by GERALD ERICKSEN

Answer

I used it with a standard power drill and it worked just like any other bit, so I imagine it will work with any standard screwdriver bit holder.

Answer

You can buy magnetic bit holders in most hardware stores and home centers. They are designed for this type of bit. One a side note I have found that a craftsman 12 volt impact drive works very well to remove fearson screws from my old Chris Craft.

Question

Does anyone know where I can get a bit for #2 screws (very small)?

Asked on 03/24/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I ordered mine from Jamestown, but it may have been larger than your #2. If you can't find the right size Frearson bit from them or elsewhere on-line consider trying a small conventional philips head. After that I guess you'd have to change out the small screw to a larger one for which the right bit is available.

Question

I am not sure if I need the #1 or #2. The screws I am working with are #8 and #10. What size do I need?

Asked on 01/11/2013 by Sven Gasser

Top Answer

I purchased #2 bits and they work very well with #8, #10 and #12 screws. I have not tried them with smaller or larger gauge screws than those. Frearson headed screws work more positively than standard Phillips headed ones. Graeme

Answer

The table in the Jamestown (online) catalog shows Number 1 for screw sizes #4-#6 and Number 2 for sizes #8 thru #16. I agree with that, NUMBER 2 FOR SIZES #8 and #10. I say with Phillips "when in doubt , always go with the larger choice. I think the same with Frearson. You will still strip a few but much much better than the wrong tool. I always spray paint my Frearson drivers to distinguish them from Phillips. Makes it easier to find and to avoid using wrong one. Order a few. you'll be glad you did Good Luck
