I've used some "junk" bits that I've since disposed of but I still have some
Hitachi, some DeWalt, some Bosch and a few Makita bits from bit sets I
bought just to get a supply of Makita Phillips bits.
Any brand other than Makita gives me "fits"...or, rather...unfits.
As Larry mentioned it could be the bit holder. I have a Milwaukee 6580-20
that had the same problem until the bit holder was replaced under warranty.
