A flexible extensions drill shaft is simply perfect for tightening those hard-to-reach screws.

While regular drill bits are fine for creating pilot holes for your screws most of the time, you'll often need to countersink the hole to keep the screw heads flush with the wood. Instead of switching out the bits to accomplish this, wouldn't it be great if one tool could do both tasks? 

You'll be pleased to find out that that is exactly what a countersink drill bit is designed to do! Yippee. 

Bit 10: Flat drill bit
