I have the cheap version that goes in a drill. It works good but not real handy when the piece cant be clamped down. You have to clamp the nibbler in the vice, lock the trigger on the drill, then hope the drill doesnt start flapping around on you if it gets bound up


This reminds me of a true story I witnessed one time. I'll share it later

I have run some big hand drills that make you pay attention to what you are doing. If they get hung up, they will rip your arms off and beat you to death with them before you can get it shut down

I have a very old Souix just like the pic below, and it has taken me for a merry-go-round ride more than once.  The armature is heavy enough that it takes a few seconds for it to coast down once shut off, even with you attached!

I got a impact screwdriver from harbor freight to fix my sister's car I'm sure it going to come in handy on the garden tractors.

Great deal , all of that for $300. I got the Craftsman version of the thread chasers. Handy to have around when you need them.

Nice finds on some quality tools. I use to go pawn shopping too but the last couple times I went I was disappointed in their high prices. We recently moved to the country & I seen a nice looking hole in the wall pawn shop I'm going to visit. You got me wanting to go bad now.

This is the impact screwdriver I picked up I can already see I will be needing to buy a better one soon.

Got this Vacuum Gauge to set the TDC on #1 Cylinder on a 2000 Ford F-150 with a 4.2 that I changed a cam synchronizer on

I have a Craftsman hand impact driver that I've owned for over 20 years and still works like new!  I had a lesser one before the Craftsman and the head of it mushroomed from the hammer blows, and the action got so worn it would hardly work at all.

I'm going to try the Tekton on on Amazon. I got their 1/4 socket set and it been good so I think the driver will be worth a try at $14.99

I picked up one of the cheap ones about 35 years ago.  Still have it but don't use it.  could never remember which way to twist the collar for in & out.  Now I use a De Walt 1/4" battery impact driver.  Haven't hit my hand once since I started using it.
