    What nut setters

    What nut setter sizes do you need or use.

    I was thinking about buying the 2", 6", and 12" sizes 1/4,3/8, and 5/16? What would you recommend for installs and service o.o

    I keep a 1/4", 5/16" & a 3/8" in my pocket all day i think they are 2 3/4" long. i have a 6" set in my tool kit but i dont use them much. I do service most days and find the med length ones the most useful

    I have 1/4" and 5/16" ones, both 6". I use them both everyday for service and LOVE them. If I did installs and tin knocking I would definitely use the 2" ones.

    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........

    Do nut drivers have to be impact rated if you are using an impact? I have seen many guys using standard nut setters in their impact?

    WTF is a nut setter? LOL

    For every day stuff, I carry 6" x 1/4", 5/16", 11/32", and 3/8". I'll probably take the 11/32" out of the tool bag. The only time I ever used it was on fractional HP condenser fan motors, and I haven't done one of those in at least 4 years, lol.

    Nutsetters, maybe not so much.

    I use a lot of phillips screws and, yeah, you want impact rated phillips bits unless you want to hammer and drill out broken bit tips. I broke 4 in a row one day, ruined 3 of the screws to the point that they had to be ground off and drilled out.

    Bought impact rated bits and I've only broken one in 2 years.
