drywall screwdriver with nutsetter locking option


My Dewalt screwdriver is OK but what bothers me is that i cannot lock the threaded style nutsetter in a place to achieve uniform depth. Every once in awhile, it twists one way or the other and i have to readjust it. Well, that's annoying and there's got to be a better technology.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

I've got two older Dewalt guns--the adjustment is tight and never comes loose--yours is a different design--

buy a makita, milwaukee or hilti. dewlat screwguns are cheap but hardly reliable. i know a ton of board hangers that buy the dewalt guns but replace em yearly.. the guys that have the other three brands never have issues except for replacing the tips

yeah i had to replace my clutch but that's because i've used it a whole lot more as a regular screw/nut driver than for drywall. but it was cheap, like $6

I got rid of all my drywall guns and just use my impact drill driver.
Total control and can be used for hundreds of other jobs.

i get that joe, however, it's nice to be on auto-pilot as to when to stop screwing in... with your option, you must constantly be super focused when to stop

Never had a probulm with it but if you add this it may help. And you still would have a tool that will blow away any cordless drill.

those tips work great, i use them all the time in my impact when running a chord for my screw gun is too much hastle. my only advice is to epoxy the tip into the bit holder as the tip wants to slip out easily unless the bit holder has a really strong magnet in it
