Re: Show your new tool arrivals

Did either of you guys try asking them for actual shipping cost? It says it right on the front page of their site to add to cart and call (or hit the "Request Total" button on eBay). They're really...

Re: Milwaukee Hard Cases

No, I don't believe there is any option to buy the hard cases on their own.

That said, I'm sure you could find plenty of folks between here and eBay looking to get rid of spare hard cases. Might...

Re: Anyone only using ratcheting screwdrivers?

Besides my impact driver, I used the hell out of my ratcheting drivers (Snap-On hard handle and Williams T-handle) my last couple of shop jobs and for automotive side work. Only pulled out the...

Wow, I'd be frustrated too. I was wondering what the Silver Eagle stuff crossed over with.

Re: Impact wrench socket recommendations

I wouldn't personally run chromes on that impact, it beats the shit out of the anvil and the sockets.

Personally, I'm running IR impact sockets on my 3/8" Fuel, but if you're looking at...

Re: they do exist!

I just Googled the part number from the last pic of them (Gearwrench 84921).

And yeah, these are rebrands of the Matco/Craftsman/Armstrong pinless impacts.

Re: they do exist!

That's really not too bad of a markup, since with a quick glance online they seem to be around $260+ on average.

We have an indy guy that stops at our shop (only one I've ever seen). Stocks SK,...

Re: need 1/2" drive deep well socket recommendations

Or, as others have said, SK is also another good option:

SK 12 point sets:
4815 (3/8" - 1-1/4")
1951 (10mm-32mm)

SK 6 point sets:
4815-6 (3/8" - 1-1/4")
1945 (10mm-24mm)
+40025 (25mm)

Re: need 1/2" drive deep well socket recommendations

Are you looking for 12pt or 6pt?

Williams (Taiwan) would fit the bill for a complete set, but not drive you completely broke over peg fillers. Same sockets are also sold as Blue Point by...

Re: Milwaukee battery comparison

I moved my M12 3/8" impact wrench up to the XC batteries, and they do hold full power longer than the little batteries. It's definitely a big help, as there is a pretty good difference in breaking...

Re: Is gearwrench the new craftsman?

Welcome to the GJ!

Most of what Gearwrench offers is excellent quality. The ratchet mechanisms (except for the 120xp) are the same as Matco/Armstrong and are interchangeable (60T, 84T, 88T) and a...

Identical to this Tekton set, besides the color of the case.

Re: Electrician insulated tools needed

They're made by Lancer in Taiwan, and wouldn't be putting the rating on the tools if they weren't.

Re: inexpensive source of 4.5, 5.5mm sockets?

Yeah, google is how I found them in the first place since the "Updated" website is such a mess.

Armstrong 37-183

Hell, you could even splurge on some Blue Points through Snap-On
