Bit Parts. Electricians use long, flexible drill bits to make holes in hard-to-reach places — to bore through a row of joists from a ceiling box, for example, while leaving the drywall undisturbed. The components in Greenlee's Quick Connect Flexible Installation Kits snap together to form a bit up to 54 inches long. The kits are easier to store and more versatile than one-piece bits, says the maker. Each $60 package contains 18- and 36-inch extensions, a drill bit, and a wire pulling head.
