This tool is great! It not only pre-drills for your screws but for the head of the screw as well and has a stop on it for the perfect depth every time!

Decks have gone from being part of the backyard to part of a home's primary outdoor living space. Hardwoods have become the most popular choice for decking among homeowners. Stainless steel deck screws, long recognized as the fastener of choice for high-end decks, have also witnessed expanded use.

Stainless steel, however, is softer than hardened steel and often requires pre-drilling as does your Brazilian Wood. In the past, pre-drilling was time consuming and laborious. Not anymore! With the Smart-Bit, pre-drilling and countersinking can be done in one step. Smart-Bits Powerbolic drill bits with special fluting cut through decking more than twice as fast as standard wood bits. Plus, the bits are replaceable.

Each tool will pre-drill and countersink for approximately 400 holes.
