So what should be used please?


A power tool, no question. It should be a reasonable impact driver (NOT a Combi!!) with impact rated bits. Ideally you'll have something like Milwaukee shockwave bits or Wera bits. I put a shaped decking the full width of the garden, mirroring the shape of the house and the extension, with 3 different levels on it, and also put a load of decking in for my daughter, and I only went through 3 or 4 bits.

The Milwaukee bits are cheaper, albeit I think I got my Wera ones from ebay. I use a Wera impact bit holder, but also have a few Milwaukee ones and they have never let me down. Milwaukee bits about £8 for a Tic Tac box of 25 on Amazon, and the Wera ones are about £23 for a box of 20 on ebay. Milwaukee bit holder about £8 for two on Amazon or ebay.

Just make sure that if the screws are pozi the bits are pozi. Don't use Phillips bits on a pozi screw or vice versa. THERE REALLY IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT!!

Decent decking screws can be had at Screwfix very reasonably, and can thoroughly recommend the timbadeck packs of 1300 screws for about £25 or 500 screws for £15-£16. Obviously the larger pack is better value for money if you can use the screws.

This seems a decent price if you need drills and screwdriver bits - but I dare say a lot of people will already have more screwdriver / torx / etc. bits than they need, in which case most of what you're paying for here, you don't actually need.

That the case for me, anyway. Heat nonetheless

You'll probably eat through your bits if you're screwing down decking with a power tool.
I laid some decking the other day and munched through a number of impact rated bits doing it.

Thanks - ordered!

EXCELLENT!! CHEERS!!

Just don't shortchange yourself when it comes to putting in supports and feet. Go as OTT as you like as you will never sit there and say i wish I hadn't bothered to put all those supports in.

The difference between an impact driver and a combi for what you want to use it for really can't be overstated. The impact driver has no wear on your wrist, won't destroy the screws or bits, and lets you put screws in with an ease you wouldn't believe possible. You really will never go back once you've tried it.

My two are both Ryobi, though if i was to start all over again I would probably go Makita ( Don't need it, just want it :-) ), but my Ryobi has been superb. 2 or 3 smaller lighter batteries as opposed to one large one will be a lot lighter on your arm when you are using it for a while.

Vassy I have an extra £10 to buy this - thanks

As far as I can see this '40 piece' set consists of 11 drills, 1 case and 28 pointless bits of tat.

Re supports for decking. Buy a load of used pallets and screw the decking boards diagonally on top.

a drill with a speed and torque setting would be great, first drill pilot holes making sure your drill is square on. When you're ready to put the screws in ensure the is perpendicular and square on to the screw and the torque setting cuts the drill off when the screw is firmly home.

Most of all take your time and enjoy the work, take a pride in the quality of the finished job.

Had one of theses sets for a while. The masonry bits are rubbish.

If you want a decent set of impact bits that dont cost the earth the V2's of the Milwaukee bits are so much better than the old ones. I have both and the difference is massive.

I use the Dewalt ones from screwfix, £5.99 for 25 and the reviews are great screwfix.com/p/d…783
