Socket bit for power drills?

Am I stupid for even thinking that they make such a bit? I have looked at local hardware stores, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. and can't find what I have in mind, thus I'm wondering if anyone even makes such a bit.

What is it?

Simple...a bit you attach to your drill and on the end it has a square mount for a socket, the exact some one you'd find on a socket wrench in popular drive sizes like 3/8" or 1/2". After you insert the bit, you just pop on any size socket you need and begin torqueing.

The closest thing I could find was a bit that on the end was an actual socket in various sizes, like 1/4", 5/8", etc. I'm looking for a socket drive bit. Does this make sense?

pick up a 3/8" extension in whatever lenght you want , cut off the female end , chuck it in your drill , use 1/4 or 1/2 adapters when needed .

if it slips use the grinding wheel and grind aome flats on it

I know exactly what you are talking about.
I carry one in my pouch and have a few spares kicking around.
The easiest ones to find are the ones to fit a 1/4" drive socket but I have one with a 3/8" end to spin off small bolts after I loosen them with a wrench.
