Make sure you have at least 90 pounds of air and if you do you need to oil the wrench air tool oil pour some in the where the air line hooks up ..air tools need to be oiled daily cause compressed air cause water vapors to build up when you use it and then when it sits it begins to rust a bit and the oil stops this ...

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.

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)

Where do i get a replacement trigger, mine is


If your local Sears store can't help you, try looking to see if you have a Snap-On, Corn-well, or Matco tool distributor in your area. Many air tools are manufactured by companies who make tools for different distributors. I work in a shop, and have found that many of the tool trucks have parts that'll work on other brands of tools besides their own.

My 1/2" CP air wrench just blows air thru when I pull the trigger


I have ran into this many times, even though you keep it oiled dirt can and will get inside. what you need to do is unscrew the 4 alen head bolts and pull the nose off. You will see a shaft that looks kind of like a crankshaft with 5 or 6 flat carbon fiber plates sitting loosely in groves around the shaft. pull those out and clean them with solvent and check them for damage or wear. clean the inside of the gun with solvent or brake cleaner, reassemble and it should work fine. If the plates need replaced then you should be able to order them from a tool supplier,and they are not that much.
