Question about Dewalt DW056 18 Volt Cordless Impact Driver - 1/4" Drive Hex Shank (Battery Charger and Case Not Included) - Tool Only
I have two dewalt impacts and they both are doing the same thing I start to put in a screw and it starts to go in then it stops but motor is still running but the front where screw is not moving why is it doing that ? I have dc825 and dw056
The pinion on front of motor is slipping on motor shaft. It seems to be just a press fit. Seems like a flaw in design. I had same problem. I took the dw056 apart and took pinion off motor and pressed groves into motor shaft with side cutter pliers. then pounded pinion back onto motor shaft. We will see how long this lasts the motor shaft is a softer metal. I feel the motor shaft should be hardened steel like the pinion and have a shear pin or some sort of spline to attach to pinion. Would like Dewalt to offer fix for this as I only used dw056 a couple of times before I had problem.

I take it the machine has adjustable torque setting. perhaps that needs tightening to a higher setting . Usually this is a numbered scale just behind the chuck. Otherwise this part may be faulty.
