    Impact Drill Socket Adapter

    Anybody use a good one that doesn't snap? I'm only giving these things light to medium use and they all break. I've just used box store ones. I'm not afraid to spend a few bucks on one that stays strong.

    I use a non impact on a 10.8V drill, 1/4" and 3/8".

    Even the big impact sets in 1/2" and 3/4 use different extensions which are black coloured and presumably a different alloy.

    i suspect you would want the harder stronger alloy?

    I've used these

    And the DeWalt version. Both sucked.

    Re: Impact Drill Socket Adapter

    I use similar, just in a non impact.
    I think that an impact would cause some extra stress or strain.
    (... and hence fatigue or failure.)

    Century tool and drill part #68580

    Boss man got a couple of these a few years ago, and the second one is still in the package in the tool box. Your driver may be stronger than our 18v Makita, so ymmv.

    Maybe ask a few local mechanics what's held of for them?
    In the hobby of car audio screwing up from time to time comes with the territory. How you move forward afterwards will determine if you can laugh about it or be furious. Life's too short to be mad so get glad

    My 36v Hitachi makes that Fuel drill look like this



    Mine is obviously tough that's why it's breaking the "impact ready" adapters. I need made for sockets!

    I did $40 snap on adapters. I may resort to that. Trying some cheaper stuff first.
