I have one of those too, you break bolts and destroy stuff long before the gun gives up. In some ways, almost too much power, almost.

good to know :D
Some of them snap off and some of them I have to cut off. But MOST are hanging tough and come out whole.

if your still under the bus with the socket wrench, get you a large piece of cardboard or cut down a large box to make a tray.
Then punch a hole in the center for the socket extention to go thru it and make yourself an umbrella.
:biggrin:

Hence the bus into an RV. This rain sucks. This snow sucks. This heat sucks. This gray sucks. This sun sucks. This ______ sucks.

25"+ inches of snow is fun in a pick up. Even more when you don't have to go to work.

Never heard of either I don't think.

I thought of that because it works when opening a bottlee of soda :) .....no go, but..... after a full day's work yesterday with the angle grinder ( because i got tired of messing around with the impact wrench and going under the bus) I only have 8 to go out of 22 !!!! It's a beautiful thing having all of that open space :)

Good idea but I'm so done with that. This should work though when it comes time to hang my water tanks....ughhh, I'm dreading that! Thanks for the great advice :)
