hey guys. anybody know if my SDS+ bits will work in an SDS Max drill? do I
need an adapter? i want to buy a >1kW drill (Dewalt D25600K) but it would
be nice if it could also do the smaller masonary jobs that my SDS+ drill can
do but i can't seem to find any small (6 to 12mm) SDS Max bits.
Hire shop lent it to me (free) when I hired a 40mm SDS max bit.
You also need a tool to separate the adaptor from the SDS max
bit because they intentionally jam together. In my case, I simply
took the two back and they separated them, but if you are hiring
more than one SDS max bit, you'll need an adaptor for each bit
unless you have a separating tool.
I've never inspected an SDS max chuck, but I presume it either
works differently from this adaptor, or it includes a separate
tool for taking the bit out after use. Certainly I doubt it works
the same way as an SDS+ chuck, as the back end of SDS max bits
seems to be slightly conical, so I doubt they are intended to slide
in their chuck. The adaptor had a similarly conical hole to take
the bit (with the SDS max 3-way keyway), and had no additional
mechanism other than it jamming in the hole to hold the bit in place.
