Has anyone heard of toolsmith?

Well my pneumatic impact died today so i figured this is the perfect time to grab a cordless impact I'm searching around and came accross the site called toolsmithonline.com. The prices are great but I've never heard of it before and can't find any reviews. Here's the link to what i'm looking at http://www.toolsmithonline.com/produ...ct-Driver.html

I would suspect that the brands that you have never heard of are ChiCom knock off's. Harbor Freight is famous for this.

For how little I use it, 49 bucks for an impact is better than paying 300 no matter where it's made

Alright, I just put in an order for the kawasaki impact. Supposedly 100ft lbs, but I'll check the truth behind that. It even comes with the 1/4 to 1/2" adapter, case, charger and battery and all for $41 plus $12 shipping. I'll post an update when i get it.
Oh and there's 2 more cordless impacts on there, one with 200ft lbs and another with i think 250lbs. So if it ends up being good quality I'll let you all know in case anyone else is interested in picking one up.

Thought i'd do an update. I got the tool a few weeks ago. Fast shipping! It's actually a nice quality feeling/looking tool. Works very well, hold charge for a while too. Runs lug nuts off with ease! I think it came to $52 shipped. It definitely puts out the claimed 100 ft lbs. So far i am very happy with it. It came with the battery, charger, and 1/2" adapter. Definitely something to consider if you need a good cheap cordless impact for the car or track or whatever.

The link is in the first post. Its definitely a good deal. Maybe not for heavy duty commercial use but for using it on the car or around the house its perfect.
