    Broken detent pin on mid torque

    Yea I've been really happy with eservice as the last few things I've sent in they sent back new tools, I just don't want to abuse it either. It just kind of sucks because it's such a new product that none of the parts places even have the anvil. The only place I can find one is on ebay and while they seem like a legit seller it's coming from Alaska. The spring pin 45 in the parts breakout looks like it has a taper on both ends but on mine it was like the ends were both broke off leaving only a small piece in the middle. I really don't know what I could have done to break those off as they should be inside the anvil.
  2. I'm not sure what happened to the detent pin on my mid torque impact wrench but when I took a socket off the pin became stuck inside the anvil. I assume that the socket somehow was hitting on the detent pin, deforming it and now it is stuck down. I thought maybe if I drove out the spring pin the I might be able to get it out. After a long stuggle I was able to get the spring pin out but that seemed to be broke down inside the anvil and is only about 1/3 the length it should have been. Even with the spring pin out the detent pin is stuck. I thought I would maybe try drill it out but it's hardened and that does nothing. Its too small to get a die grinder at it. Has anyone else dealt with this issue and is there a trick to getting it out or do I just have to buy a new anvil. It's only a year old but I assume warranty isn't going to cover this.

    M12 stubby impact wrenches

    Just a few size comparison pictures. Doing a 3/4" structural bolt tightening test the new stubby can tighten the bolt so a m18 gen 2 compact impact wrench 2755 can't undo it. Which it should able to being that it has and extra 30ft/lbs of torque. A few final thought after comparing them side by side to the m12 and m18 impact drivers, I would still like to see them put a 3/8" anvil on the 1/4" size impacts. I can't wait to see what the m18 gen 3 compact impact wrench will look like if it's anything like the new driver.

    Milwaukee m18 half inch impact wrench trouble

    Probably something faulty with it, if it's brand new I would take it back and exchange it.

    Is this how it should be

    I don't own any one-key tools so I can't tell you if it has the ability to disable a stolen tool. But it seems to be the general consensus on here that one-key is all but useless in the retrieval of stolen tools, which is one of the things its marketed as doing. A few guys on here have had them stolen and because it's all based on blue tooth and the milwaukee app, your stolen tool would have to be in blue tooth range of someone with the app to be tracked.

    What tools did you buy today?

    My want for more xc batteries for my future stubby impact wrench led me to do bad things haha.

    Old 3/8" heavy duty hammer drill worth buying?

    I'd second staying away. Cordless power tools have come a long way in the last 20 years in terms of both power and runtime. Then on top of that hammer drills aren't real great at drilling into concrete. I personally just think you would be setting yourself up for an unpleasant experience.

    M12 stubby impact wrenches

    Curious how far out these really are, toolnut.com says they'll ship Sept. 1 and acme says Sept. 24. I figured toolnut just knew they were coming out sometime in September so they put Sept. 1 as a estimated date but as it gets closer I figured they would have adjusted it but they haven't yet.
  11. So yesterday I was drilling some holes in steel 50' up a tower and my 2803 drill caught and half way twisted out of my hand. I went to put it in reverse and the switch was jamed and wouldn't move. Thinking the switch was broke I climbed down to get a different drill and sure enough when I got to the ground the switch is working just fine. Not sure what happened that it jamed or when or if it'll do it again. I have to say besides that hiccup this drill is really impressing me. I think it's a combination of more power and a chuck that holds the bit tight, but it definately seems to drill through steel better than the gen 1 or 2. As far as the drill getting hot I haven't had any issues. I don't use big hole saws and I haven't used it to drill 100's of holes one after another yet, but with regular daily use I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary.

    help finding quick disconnect drill motors

    I don't know where you're from but a quick Home Depot search in the 12v drill/drivers you can find them. Bosch, Makita, and Milwaukee all have pretty big lineups of 12v tools if that's important to you. HiltI really doesn't have many 12v tools but if I weren't going to buy any other tools I think its the one I would lean towards but I really don't think you could go wrong with any of them.

    Milwaukee makes some m12 drill drivers that have the 1/4" hex, model 2402 I believe is their newest. Another option might be a metabo 18v drill I believe they call them a "quick system" where the standard chuck pops off leaving a 1/4" hex drive. I'm sure there are other options from other companies but these are ones I know of off the top of my head.

    Fest...DeWALT price increase

    Well the dewalt sales flyer I got from my tool supplier today has price changes. It appears that most of the bare tools in the $100-$200 range got an extra $10 thrown on it. Dcf887 was $129 now $139. Single tool and battery kits seemed to have taken a $20 jump ex. Dcd996 was $199 now $219. I can understand that over time cost can go up but it's kind of hard to stomach when it's the same old product. At least the red marketing machine keeps rolling out "new" models so you feel like you're getting something more for your extra money. The one that catches my attention is the old dcf880 1/2" compact impact wrench. I would gladly give dewalt $160-200 for an updated brushless model but I was thinking we should be seeing a price drop from $129 on the current model not an increase to $139.
