I bought a used one, do not have it on hand, but need to buy some bits
for it. Is an SDS 1" drill universal or do I need to buy specific 1"
bits for dewailt?
Also, do hardware stores stock chuck adapters for SDS drills?
SDS bits are standard and you don't need to buy DeWalt. BTW, Harbor Freight
has killer prices on SDS bits. I have not seen the chuck adapters at the
local hardware stores. Milwaukee has them packaged with the drill but not
sure they would sell you just the chuck.
There are SDS and SDS Max drills. If you are sure about the SDS,
all will interchange. The 1" means nothing other than that is the
maximum sized bit meant to work with that drill. It will work all
the other sizes smaller than 1".
Once you have used an SDS bit, you really won't want a chuck and
adapter. The one made by Bosch is excellent, if you insist.
These are not hardware store items. Find a commercial tool vendor
in your area.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
