I put up some drywall about a week ago, I never screwed drywall years ago, it was always nailed. After repeatably hearing how much better screws are for hanging drywall I decided to step up in the modern world and give it a try.
I tried a regular cordless drill with a dimplier clutch attachment made by Dewalt, It worked pretty good, but it did break thru the paper now and then.
Just for "chits and giggles " I decided to give it a whirl with my Makita LXT 18volt impact driver. I was quite shocked how much control I had sinking the drywall screw to just the right depth without a paper break!
I finished the job with the impact driver without the dimpler.
I drove the screw flush and just a coupla impact blaps and viola it was set just right!
Who wuda have thought an impact driver that can drive a screw right through
a piece of wood would also be versatile enough to drive drywall screws!

Don’t have the best tools, don't use the best woods and projects don’t always turnout perfeck.
I just feel the need to work with wood!
