screwing in drywall by hand?


I want to THANK YOU, for your amazing step by step instruction, at the begining of my postings for framing.

I have completed one 15 foot wall of framing today.

Thank you, thank you.
You are fabulous.

I do look forward to continued help.

Yummy, you can buy a special clutched bit for drywall screws that fits in a regular drill, it sets the screw to a certain depth. I don't find them any easier to use than the drywall guns, however, they're cheap so you might wanna give em a try.

Yummy, Try installing a drywall screw by hand into a scrap of 2x4 wood. This will certainly have you looking at a drill driver or hammer quickly.

That is the ticket. Turns any drill in to a drywall drill. Its also inexpensive. Would recomend that or just to nail. If nailing make sure you leave a dimpel.(spelling i'm so bad at spelling )

Thanks 747.
That is the exact same one that I have seen and I will be purchasing it.

But I do have to try doing it by hand.

Your spelling is fine, I understand "dimple"

Greetings--

I've seen an adaptor made for sheetrock screws that fits on a drill. I'd suggest using either a drill/adaptor or go spring for an inexpensive sheetrock gun (ie Harbor Freight tools). Screwing them by hand wont work well. Screwing them in with a regular drill will give poor results, driving them too deep through the paper.
