How do I lubricate my new DW293 DeWalt Impact Wrench, and with what oil/grease? The manual I got with the tool says to take to an authorized service professional, which I don't want to do

    sorry, I didn't specify, but the dw293 is electric. The owners manual says to lubricate every few months, whether its used or not.

Its newmatic right just put a few drops oil right down the air feed and a moisture trap inline off the compresser would be goodHowever the picture looks like its electric and you don't realy have to do that now its prelubed and shouldn't be an issue for many hours of service. If it is air then wd 40 works fine the problem comes in when they sit with out use for long peirods of time they rust and seize and thats hard to fix

    Idon't know what they mean unless there is a centrial port and instrucions for this opperation. It would have to be for the main drive gears that would handle the direct force in the gear box that would have sepperate from the motor and sealed. They can't mean that the unit has to be disasmbled on a regular basis wheather you use it or not. This is a good one i would call factory derict and find out what there trying to hide from you like a defect that they know about and when it brakes its all your felt because you didn't take it to an rep to be manitaned. Isn't that why you buy the tool in the first place so you don't need anyone else to do the job. I use lots of tools im in bisness and iv'e seen a big decline in the quility of a lot of tool companys and dewalt is one of them they make things to homedopt standands sell them cheaper but ther not professional quitaly tools. I wish i could look at the thing but something is not right with what they are telling you best of luck with it

On the CP-797, do you put oil in the hammer case?, there is a small plug up front.


Some of the early CP797 used grease, the current models use oil.
To identify your tool look at the front of the hammer case where the anvil is located and look for a seal (item# 115) if it is present then you tool uses oil, the manual states that the tool requires 6 ounces of SAE30 oil use non detergent type.
Follow this link for the owner's manual:

HOW DO I OIL THIS IMPACT WRENCH ?


Pretty much all air impacts are oiled through the air inlet fitting, use 3 to 6 drops this will lubricate the air motor, oil the tool with every use.
Now on the side of the tool you might see a hex plug near the middle or in the front of the tool and might be labeled OIL, that is the one that lubricates the hammer (clutch) mechanism, use a light to medium oil SAE20 or SAE30, this needs to be checked once a month with heavy use or 2 to 3 times a year with light use.

Ingerroll rand 2132g how do I oil my air impact wrench?


Most I.R. impacts require grease in the hammer mechanism (clutch) and oil in the air motor.
To lubricate the air motor simply add oil through the air inlet about 3 to 6 drops at every use.
To lubricate the hammer (clutch) mechanism you will need a grease gun with a needle, the grease fitting (item# 17) is located on the hammer case assembly (item# 15) 2 or 3 small squirts will sufficiently lube the hammer (clutch) mechanism.
With heavy use grease the tool once a month, with light use 2 to 3 times a year.
Follow this link for the parts list, also indicates the grease needed:

How do you oil a Craftsman Air Impact Wrench Model No. 87518846


If you are just oiling the gun,hold it upside down and squirt some oil ine the air chuck fitting.(I just use an empty bottle of my wife's hair dye filled with ATF-it's cheaper than a can of "air tool oil".If you are referring to the grease fitting for the impact mechanism,look for a small hole with a captured metal ball.The only tool I found to fill this is a specially designed miniature grease gun(got mine at Sears).

Is it normal for oil to spray out of the front of the Husky 1/2 impact wrench?


Yes. Every air tool has an exhaust. On impact wrenches this is usually on the front. Oil is necessary to lubricate the tool and it is delivered through the tool on the same path as the air. But maybe you don't need quite so much oil. If you are trying to keep those nice wheels clean, you can loosely hold a rag over the exhaust. Or some devices have a means to re-direct the exhaust.

Lubrication and maintenance reciprocal saw DeWalt


Before you attempt any of this I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and see what the inside of this tool looks like. It appears that you need to remove part of the front gearcase to get into the lube. The back e.g. brushes is not that big of a deal. If there is a Service Center near you they have a Max repair rate that they will fix anything on this saw at a preset firm price and if it is less that is what they would charge.

Wrench Troubleshooting


In line oiler Lubrication is critical to extending the life of your valuable air impact wrench and increase productivity. An air tool that has not been properly lubricated will result in low power output. The usual culprit is a dry motor starving for some oil. Your impact wrench is an expensive investment and you must take the time to properly lubricate it. The easiest and quickest way to make surein line oiler it is constantly lubricated is to install an in line oil lubricator. One of these will insure your air tools are receiving oil every time they are used. In line lubricators attach right into the air hose and you fill them with the correct lubricating oil. (see your manufacturer's specs.). You should also do routine external lubrication through the hammer case grease fitting. A well lubricated air impact wrench will deliver more torque, last longer, run quieter and increase productivity. Don't forget to add an in line oiler to your next impact wrench or air tool. It will pay for itself several times over.
