 I thought this would be a good thread to start & will help a lot of people out when at the store. Post info, links, & pictures of your top three favorite driver bit/drill bit "kits".  Then post 2-3 of your favorite bits, attachments, extensions, etc that do not come in the kits you use.

Does anyone on here have the shockwave 30° knuckle on their list as one of the things that they use all the time?  I think it can be purchased just the knuckle itself but I'm not sure. I  noticed today that it's not sold in any stores around me it's one of those online only deals. I have not seen it posted on here very much at all and I'm not sure why, I use my hand ratchet one like this all the time

Nothing Milwaukee outside of my hole saw kit here. I've got some Dewalt black oxides. They're not bad. I've got the Makita contractor set which is okay. Comparable to the Ryobi basic set. The drill bits are nice though. Then I've got the Festool Centrotec contractors set. Nothing better but I believe all of the bits are actually made by Wiha and the Zobo forstners are made by Festool. The absolute bar none best Forster bits in the world. They have re sharpenable blades and replaceable drill bits in the shaft.

I bought one on amazon little while back, it comes with a few bits, ive started using them pretty regularly around the house.

I also recently bought makita set of bits and drill bits I use sometimes.

Dont really have a favorite... for work, I mainly use 1/4" & 5/16" nut drivers and Phillips and torx....no real set, just a few bits I put together

I have those too, nice set and the case is well made.

These Wihas are by far my must used bits, it's like they were made for what I do and the set is 7, 8, & 10mm, the vast majority of fasteners I'll turn in a work day. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033PR4I0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1969a114af1dbc06d145142547eaf588b.jpg

These VIMs come in a distant second, for reach. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012UT7CMM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1bee61a1d710a3abb4a08772b1a43f742.jpg

And my go-to torx bits, US made SK. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DSSMCBG/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DERa0b34fa2e640b1e1c72cb00c0ed44ce7.jpg

And my all time favorite accessory. Doesn't come out often but saves the day every time. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0000224AW/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1462340608&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=milwaukee+right+angle+drill+attachmentd635bd961967890001b30af868d74635.jpg

I love mine. Reviews claim it's unwieldy and the removable handle falls off to easily and gets lost, I haven't had that problem. It's not for impacts or any high torque application, I did break one that way. Milwaukee has a similar one that's a bit tougher for $50, and it's a true right angle.

I haven't used that but I have found my Milwaukee 30 degree version useful. BUT that one is impact rated, I think I'd recommend getting a version that is impact rated, I know Milwaukee and Dewalt have impact rated versions...If you can find one of the 30 degree Milwaukees at HD, they should be clearanced at $6 but I doubt there will be many of those left.

Can't beat that price! I've got the Dewalt angle attachment and so far so good. I use it mostly on a couple pieces of furniture we have. Nothing heavy duty at all, but works well for what I needed it to.

I did see the Dewalt one. It's 20 degrees and this is 30.  The one thing I don't like is how big it is and the huge ball/hinge. Thr Dewalt one is so much skinnier. This looks much stronger thou
