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 my 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 cannot get my bar ends to move on my XJ900S Diversion


Bar ends tend to get really stuck from corrosion (rust). The best way I found, an air impact gun, much like the ones used in tire shops to remove and install the wheels on cars. A less expensive option is to get a manual or hammer driven impact driver to do the same work.
Tool 3 8 in Impact Drivers 71700

This is an example of the hammer driven tool, no endorsement implied. I have no idea what brand mine is.

The tool can be selected to turn Right or left. When you hit it with a hammer the tool is driven into the fastener (bar end) and induces a slight twist. This shock load works great for loosening tight threads.

When I bought this item it stated that you could fix sockets onto the end of Impact Driver. I am unable to see how they fit onto the end of Driver. Is there an attachment made for this purpose? Thank You...


You have to distinguish between Driver and Wrench. Driver has 1/4'' hex hole where you can insert standard bits. Wrench has a 1/2 or 3/8 Square drive and you can put sockets directly on it. Wrenches have usually higher torque compared to drivers. DC827 is driver, you might want to change it for DC822, or you can use adaptor from 1/4 to 3/8 or 1/2 Juraj

Dewalt cordless drill dc988- drill motor works intermitantly when trigger is pulled. Works a little better as it warms up. Im thinking vsr switch, brushes, or motor/armature. please help...


Test the brushes by catching it in a stalled condition when you have it triggered, then rotate it slightly. If it takes off suspect the brushes or a dead segment on the comutator.

If it doesn't respond to this, then consider the VSR trigger... open it and test by bypassing it when in stalled condition...

Winchester model 88. with the trigger assembly


Less Than Perfect
The Model 88 had its faults. The trigger moves with the lever and the resulting linkage to the sear results in a rather spongy, creepy trigger break. If you want to see your gunsmith turn pale, waltz into the shop with an M88 and ask for a crisp three-pound trigger.

If you already have taken the gun apart, don't be afraid to hone the parts on a stone , keep them flat, you don't want anything rounded off. Especially the sear. I found that quote up top from a winchester sight,

It does nothing


Make sure that you have at least 50 psig of air pressure before you attempt to troubleshoot your impact. 70 is better, 90 is perfect. Impact wrenches are powered by internal sliding vanes, which can sometimes stick. There are a couple of ways to get it going again. Try 1 before going to 2, etc,:
1. Spray W-D 40 or a similar oil into the impact, while you are holding the trigger down. Give it a good shot. Connect the hose and pull the trigger. Tap the sides of the gun with a plastic hammer to help free up the vanes. Repeat. Normally, this is enough to get you back running.
2. Place it in a bucket and cover the gun with W-D 40. Work the anvil end and trigger to work the oil deep into the gun. Ley it soak 1 hour, and repeat the process, working the oil in, and the air out. Remove it from the oil, and drain the oil back into the bucket by holding the trigger down. Hook up the air, and blow it out.
3. Remove the cover on the head that covers the vanes. Make sure that the vanes will slide freely, and that all gaskets and "O" rings are in good condition. If you note any dry areas in the inner parts of the impact, lubricate with W-D 40, and reassemble.
4. I'm all out of ideas.. If that didn't fix it, I'd go get a new one.
Best of luck, --W/D--
