1/4 inch impact

I just bought a 1/4 inch air impact last Friday, its awesome. I wish I would have bought it years ago. Never knew I would use it so much. It's great for disassembly of the light stuff. If anyone has been looking at these I suggest that you get it. Just had to share.

Steve

Steve, I discovered those things some time back and I agree 110%, after using it for a while I would be lost without it. What is really so handy about the thing is the tight places you can go with it

Mine is the Matco version and yes it is an impact. I also have the 1/4 inch air ratchet. Don't know what I would do without my air tools. I couldn't imagine wrenching on cars without them.

Working on Honda,s that is mostly what we use is the 1/4 drive.I also like the snap on 1/4 swivel impact sockets.The magnet sockets with the locking extensions are great for starting bolts also.
One thing I just did recently is fix my old 3/8 snap on impact.I did a search and found the parts on the snap on site.Got it fixed for about 10 bucks.
