    Default drill adapter to square drive

    Tom was showing a tool that is an adapter that goes over a drill bit and adapts to a square bit driver. Does anyone know where I can get one.

    Big Walt is incorrect. Tom was not using a square bit addapter.
    How would it work? The drill chuck had a drill bit inserted
    and the attachment went over the bit. There was no Square bit
    driver involved. The item Tom was using was anodized red or a similar color. It was also cone shaped! Please advise with the correct information. Thank you Jim L

    FYI..I have not see what tool Tom is using.

    I was only going by what the OP said. "adapts to a square bit driver".

    Please Show me a picture of what Tom is using.

    I am looking for the same tool that Tom was using on "Ask This Old House" that aired on 10 November 2007. Tom was using a cordless drill with the bit in an adapter and after he was finished drilling the pilot hole, he placed an attatchment over the drill bit and was able to drive a square drive decking screw...hope that description helps.

    It was used in episode #606 of Ask This Old House where Tom was replacing some indoor mouldings...

    Here's another type that is similar idea.

    Has a drill bit for the pilot hole and a countersink cutter if needed..... just disconnect ..... flip it over ..... re-connect and you have the screw driver bit.

    Pictured with the square ( actually known as Robertson) bit.

    Guys, Thanks for better descriptions. Now I know what OP is trying to explain.
