SOURCE: 1/2 air impact wrench will not turn socket.

Make sure the fitting are tight on the hose and gun. Also make sure that the switch for forward/reverse is solidly in one position, if it is not it will cause what you described.

SOURCE: Dont know where to put oil in Craftsman 1/2 " Impact wrench

I just bought one of these also. Manual says oil goes into "the air inlet" which I'm thinking is where you attach the hose. That way the oil is sprayed throughout the interior of the gun once you run air through it.
Question for you: I can't get an impact socket onto this gun, almost seems like the square hole is too small. (yes, both are 1/2" drive). How do you get a socket on this stupid thing?
(man that sounds like I'm an idiot, but I've spent a half hour leaning all my body wight, wiggling, etc. and can't get a damn socket on)

SOURCE: Why doesn't my craftsman air sockets not fit

Make sure the expansion ring is on the end of the impact gun. this holds the sockets in place.

Craftsman 1/2 inch air impact wrench i bought one and i don't see a chuck in the box nor do i see instructions on how to attach sockets....i've never had one before and don't want to sound like an idiot,...



  • There are no chucks with these newer impact wrenches. See that little ring on the tip of the socket shaft? That is a lock ring and that is what holds your sockets in place. You will want to keep a few 1/2 impact wrench lock rings around. There is a tool they make to aid in removing and replacing those rings but it is not necessary. You can use a small flathead screwdriver and walk the old one off and the same for replacing it. All you need to do is snap a socket on there real good and let'er rip.

What sockets fit


Any sockets will fit the ratchet, 3/8 drive, the impact drive is 1/2 drive, and they make hardened sockets for it. And I can't really make out the last tool there in the kit. The impact tool will take normal sockets for reg duty use but not for wheel lugs and such, they will crack, but if you buy Craftsman, they will replace it. I have only cracked one in thirty years. But I also have the hardened set of sockets. Hope this helps.

Need to replace rear air strut what tools do i need


hello, you are a brave man. Well you need a floor jack, or a good bottle jack to start, jack stands, 18mm deep socket, impact wrench, a 3" extension for you 1/2 or 3/8 tool set, several metric 6 point sockets, regular size. You will also need some open-end wrenches, such a box wrench, a vise grip. If you don't have a impact wrench, a 12volt electric impact wrench, the kind used for removing lug nuts will do. Just be prepared to toss it afterwards, if it is a cheap one. Also a 18" breaker bar, 1/2" size is highly recommended, with a 3/8 adapter for using 3/8 sockets. I hope this helps. Did you blow a air bag, or is one of the solenoid's gone bad?

Air Wrench Question


An impact wrench works in the manner suggested by the name of the tool: through the principle of impact. In order to understand how an electrical or air-powered impact wrench works, it helps to know first how a manually powered impact wrench operates. A manually powered impact wrench looks like a fat screwdriver; on the end where the screwdriver blade normally goes, you can snap on screwdriver bits or sockets.

An impact wrench also requires a few special accessories. An air-powered impact wrench runs off of an air compressor with a tank – the air compressor should have at least a 10 gallon tank and be able to generate at least 3hp. Also, an impact wrench requires special sockets that are designed to withstand the high torque applied by the wrench.
