Anyone ever used one of these?

Sears



I've been trying to find a good air hose swivel for my Nitrocat impact but I'm appalled at the prices off the tool truck. This price EASILY beats them out. My concern, however, is that this swivel, like many of the cheapies out there, will absolutely castrate my impact. Can anyone vouch that these do just fine on impacts and not just generically "air tools" like the ad says?

pay the piper and get a ball & socket swivel for your impact, you will be happier in the long run.

Re: Anyone ever used one of these?

I ended up buying one of the cheap Milton swivels in the same style I posted above for now. I'll buy the ball and socket type if I need to, but the NitroKitty tore a 7/16 lugstud apart today so I'm not too worried about it being castrated. Of course we also run 125 psi shop pressure so even after line loses I should be seeing 90 at the gun.

I blew out a ball and socket whip and I'm only pushing a little more than 90 psi ... I too am looking for a swivel just for my riveter... Looked in the big box stores for one, but I should have guessed they wouldn't have one.... Around here, the big box stores have turned into K Marts....

tip; when you start working at the torque limit of your tools it helps to use a larger diameter hose for a reservoir at the tool, even a 2' whip makes a big improvement

Milton recommended exactly that in the destructions.

If you're really desperate you could try and hit up one of the tool truck guys, Al. I know they have some really nice swivels that are warranted and designed for rigorous use. The $15-20 might be well worth it for you.
