Some new tools
« on: 30.05. 2018 14:17 »
I use my battery powered drill/screwdriver a lot. In fact, I hardly use traditional screwdrivers these days. I spotted these and thought they'd be useful for mechanical work. Obviously, the driver will not fully tighten large nuts & bolts but it should speed things up a bit. I can see the torque setting on the driver being useful when I do up the clutch dome nuts.

Set the torque release very low. I do that with screws in soft surfaces like fixing through plasterboard.

Hi GB and All,
I have had a set of those socket drivers for quite a few years now, very useful
The original job at work that prompted getting them was the assembly of large areas of perforated decking
A million M8 bolts and nuts *eek* *pull hair out*
