However, it does come equipped with Xenox. That's a Lennox air conditioner / Xerox photocopier dual purpose gadget; pretty handy.

97 M3 with Dinan mods and rims. I'm thinking typo or scam.

If anyone needs an impact gun, CT has a great deal:

http://www.canadiantire.ca/browse/pr...=1233692231161

You get a huge set of impact sockets, metric and SAE and get a free electric gun. (!!) I use the electric over my air one all the time for wheels, lots of torque.

Adapter adds extra length, which can be a problem sometimes. All my sockets are 3/8'.

I find Craftsman better. Not by much. I'm pretty happy with my DeWalt tools too.

Any serious impact set will be 1/2".. this kit comes with all the sockets anyway. ?? You'd never want to use regular chrome sockets with an impact gun, they shatter. Anyway, mastercraft, craftsman, etc, are all made in china. The maximum series is pretty good, and they have lifetime no receipt warranty, like snap-on and craftsman. Dewalt are definitely good tools.

But, I got this gun as a present and I'm impressed with the torque it has. I'd never consider using an adapter with this gun, it would shear it right off.

Did you know that Snap-On doesn't even guarantee any adapters they sell? Gives you an idea of how bad of an idea an adapter with an impact is.

yeah adapters just don't work well with impacts. I've sheared a couple with mine. 1/2" is the only way to go if you're gonna use the impact as it's meant to be used.

and +1 for mastercraft...I've never had issues with their tools, and I've beat them up pretty bad at times. Not sure why you don't like them Jamil.

Amen to the Mastercraft tools. And the best part is, if it's guaranteed for life like the sockets et al, you simply take the broken piece in, and it's replaced. Same as Sears, but for less money.

As for the 3/8" vs 1/2", the half inch stuff will be stronger. I've broken 3/8" extensions before when using a lever. Never have broken the half inch stuff.
