Husky mechanism switch worked more easily and the actual bit socket is 6-sided vs the Lowes which felt crusty and has a spline bit socket.

Anyone sourced any 5/16 shank bits other than short Torx bits? Seems the Torx are all I can find online but I'd love to find some 3" - 6" long Hex and Torx bits with the 5/16 shank size...
I use mine with a 1/4" hex adapter and an extension most often. But you could get a hex extension too. Seems better to me to carry one extension than a bunch of long bits, even if you could find them.
