kind of expensive but my 1/2" lithium ion impact is just as powerful and you dont have to have the hose and noisy compressor

"kind of expensive but my 1/2" lithium ion impact "

I have a Craftsman 20 volt 1/2 drill, still in the box. Will have to check if it will function as an impact.

I will take a picture of it. I bought it at cOSTCO, they has it with an instant rebate, made a 1/2 Craftsman 20 Volt cordless drill for $110, with two batteries.

I had been thinking about returning it, it was an impulse purchase, but I am going to look at it a bit closer, maybe it will have a use.

170 ft-lbs torque? Get that weak junk outta here!



I think I'll just get one of the bigger mobile compressors. It'll pay for itself.

Raised up my muffler tips a bit cuz they were hanging a little too low for me. Replaced the hoses to the air pump thing in the back and got that working. Inflated a basketball = ). I "Warshed" and waxed it too.

I mounted my new vise on my work bench, put together a drill press, and mounted a bench grinder on my work bench also. I put hood pins on my truck and made brackets for my rear bumper. Since I didn't want to pay for new brackets plus part of the frame was cut off at some point in time and the original brackets wouldn't have worked without modifying them.
