  • Tool question

    My tools have to do double duty on my cars and for house repair. I watch both Speed TV and HGTV. Several times I have seen people using a cordless drill with a socket attachment on both cars and when building say, a porch or deck. I have a limited budget and use Stanley or Craftsmen tools. I have yet to see this particular item offered from either of these two companies. Do any off y'all have knowledge of this item, and where I can get them? Thanks!

    THIS?

    I have several, since I am always misplacing them (mainly the 1/4" drive one).
    $3.00 for both is not a bad price.

      Northern Tool or Amazon (actually, it's often Northern Tool on Amazon) as a source. It's becoming common to see those included in cheap, bulk socket sets. I have several rolling around in my toolbox.

        I have a Dewalt 12V 3/8 impact driver that I use at work. This thing is AWESOME! Plus, it has a little LED underneath the bit that lights up whatever you're working on.

          the impact driver is nice, but about $135 more than the adapters I linked to.

            that one handy tool ya got there renegadestang. impact drivers can do way more than just a drill, most of the 18 volt ones can even take off lug nuts.

              Thanks

              Yeah that looks like it Blupupher, I stupidly assumed that the adapter and socket were all one item.
              WOW! almost $7.00 dollars for shipping on less than four dollar item! I thought we were in a recession! HA! Thanks.

                  Most any place that sells tools has them, not just Sears.

                    You can often find them at the check-out counter of hardware stores - an impulse buy item, I guess.

                        I made mine from a short extension on a grinder about 15 years ago. Still working great for me!

                          Skill makes a small quarter inch electric ratchet that sells for about 60 bucks. it is rated at 25ft lbs. i think. i used to have one till i broke it (err i broke it). lasted me over a year and a half of continuous use as a mechanic. the perfect tool for dash work and any and all ten mills

                            Inch pounds, I expect.
