George, I got one of those 1/4 impact drivers for Christmas. What do you use a 1/4 for?

I have 1/4 inch screw drivers. Once thought square heads were great until I discovered T25. Hard to believe, but it does a great job of removing rusty phillips from a wood deck. Also have a set of 1/4 inch nut drivers. I use mine all the time, mostly as a power screwdriver, but it will set lags too with the nut driver.

You'll never use the drill again to put in screws. I just built a metal building 24 x 27 using screws to put on the metal. HOLY COW..I bought one of these after seeing a buddy of mine using one. Has become one of my most used tools. I have the dewalt bit accessories so I can use it with 1/4 sockets also.

All the things you use your drill for besides drilling holes. Get the three bit set of square drives for it and the 8 bit set of sockets with the 1/4 shaft on them. I just bought one on Ebay for 66 dollars. (No battery) I have 7 dewalt tools, two batteries and one charger. Works for me. Not often I use the vacumm, light sawsall, skillsaw, 1/2 drive impact, drill, and 1/4 impact at the same time.

I use my 1/4 regularly for driving screws. That's what it seems to be designed for. They're nice when you are out of position, because of their small size. Also pretty good at getting corroded screws out of carburetors and the like. The impacting helps break them loose. Gotta be careful though. You can really round off screw heads.

I am very disappointed with my Makita 1/4" impact driver. I'd say 8 out of 10 times that I use it, it ends up breaking the head off the bolt / screw before it even gets tight. Just this past weekend I tried driving in some 3/8" lag bolts. I still had about 1/2" of lag bolt to go and "pop" the bolt head breaks off. It seems like the ultra-fast pulses of the impact fractures bolts.

Meanwhile, I've used my 1/2" air impact for similar duties and rarely have any trouble with fractured bolts.
