View Full Version : Ham, Beens & Dewalt
08-30-2006, 08:15 PM
While changing condenser fan motors on a Nor lake prep table, ( I stood it up on end) I was using my inpact driver, to zip the screws out, everything going good, a little short on room in the kitchen, I sat my driver on a shelf, and Jose ( who doesn't speek english) somehow knocked it off the shelf, into the beens and ham hock that was boiling away, I just about went for it bare handed, that's how much I like that impact, I fished it out, unplugger the battery, and started rinsing it out with hot water. After I got back to the shop I used hi pressure air to blow it out good and tried it, It seem to run ok, but every so often it stops for a second, and a awful smell fills the room, then back to work.
Just kidding about the stopping, and the smell.

Let me guess, Jose just gave the beans & hamhocks a stir and let them continue boiling..... :)
I got the 18v version. Don't leave home without it.

The 18 volt, I would twist everything off. It's tough, I don't know if I should spay some light oil in it or not, (rust?) I have a can of Remmington spray gun oil I could give it a shot, whats you think???

Take it back to where ever you got it...swear that you have only used it a couple of times......
"don't share this with them"
DeWalt is usually really good at exchanging when there has been a problem............ :D

Nothing will beat it when you have a ton of screws (of any kind) to drive. I'd say you'll use it much much more doing installs vs service work. But they'll whip screws out of pannels mighty fast too.

I carry both an impact and regular drill. One thing I really like about the impact is it's small and it works great at getting rusted screws out(esp. gas pack HX screws). Ok, so thats two things, but I still wouldnt leave home without it.
