Milwaukee 3/8” impact

Okay, I admit it, I’m getting old.

After 40+ years of twisting wrenches, my right wrist and hand give me an almost constant, nagging pain while working in the garage. I do a lot more work left handed then I ever did but it’s still not a complete solution.
Not like I can’t live with the pain, just an aggravation.

My wife bought me this for Xmas.

I LOVE it! I have a 3/8” air impact but seldom drag out the hose any more. This thing is so convenient!
It’s been a huge help to minimizing my pain.

The younger guys at work all used the cordless impacts while the old guard, like me, stuck to the air tools we’d used forever. You can teach an old dog new tricks!

Seems like every time I work on the Jeep its out of the tool box. Even simple jobs.

I got a Dewalt set as a 25 year gift. I use the impact all the time, love that thing. No firing up the compressor for many jobs. I don't currently have a 1/2" so bigger stuff still needs the air.
