    I also was surprised that Snap On did not have any JIS bits although I am fond of their Phillips ACR style bits with the cam out limiting lines on the driving faces, they work really well.

    As far as cordless goes I have had multiple brands including Milwaukee, Dewalt etc. and I have been very pleased with Ridgid brand from Home Depot, I have not had a battery fail yet, the 1/2" impact will remove the lug nuts on my 2500HD and my motorhome and all including the batteries are lifetime warranty.

    You know when you promise NEVER to drink again the morning after?

    Yep. It's a vicious circle.. :lol3

    And don't forget the various radios, fans, lights, grease guns, caulking guns, & on &. Ryobi has them all.

    I like the spiral wrap type. Good for keeping cable & wires tidy as well. Easy on, easy off. Many size & colour options too ...

    I used a 36v drill at a demo day several years ago. Been waiting for that to hit the US market ever since. It was memorable. Pretty sure it would either break them loose or round the JIS screws on a DR carb smooth in one rotation. I've had some experience with 60v lawn mowers and chainsaws working at a tool rental place. They were also impressive. My next lawnmower will likely be battery powered.

    I just used my Ryobi LED light (overkill) to scan my stool tray and garage floor for my oil filter spring.:dirtdog At 3AM? Someone here infected me with the notion I needed this light. No sign of the spring.:scratch I've been doing good with the recent time change, managing to mostly sleep until 4AM. Today I couldn't go back to sleep after the 2:15 wake up because a thought worm was wiggling in my brain. Did I put the spring between the filter and cover when I changed the oil last week? :baldy When I first put the filter cover on it didn't seat right and I discovered the o-ring had slipped out of the groove on the bottom side and got pinched. Pulled out a spare o-ring (must remember to order new spare o-rings, and spring) and reinstalled the cover. This morning, upon waking I'm plagued with the question; is the spring between the filter and cover? If anyone else cares I'll report back once I lay the bike over and pull the filter cover.:loco

    That impact driver did my entire 18' trailer deck. I used those screws that go through the wood then self tap into the metal underneath. That driver took a beating and it didn't hesitate for a moment. All on one battery too.

    Welcome to my world!

    Once you experience an application where the impact driver outperforms a drill driver you never go back. I tend to use the impact more often than the drill anymore. I did smoke my consumer grade Ryobi sawzall though (on a job that was no sweat for the Milwaukee) but they have a heavier duty one now.

    It’s over by the door. At the bottom of the steps. If you have steps. :D

    Happened to me last week. Dropped a 4mm shoulder nut from a bicycle bell. Found it the next day 15 feet away. Just before I went out to try and buy something equal.

    I still haven’t found my front axle retaining bolt (that sounds like what it should be called). I’ve been all over the garage on my hands and knees with a flashlight 3 times now. I keep a tidy garage too, must be a black hole.
