New garage sale treasures: IR Impact, and reversible THOR
« on: June 07, 2015, 01:48:12 PM »
Man, yesterday was a great day to hit up yard sales.. There were at least 20 of them on my way to Duluth, and I stopped at 5 or 6. Among my many prizes are these babies!

An Ingersoll Rand Impact wrench, which I got for $5. The trigger switch inside was stuck on, which I suspect is the reason for the price. Popped it open, spritzed a little WD-40 in there, and works good as new! :D What's kind of wonky though, is it has a 5/8" drive. Luckily, it came with a 5/8" to 1/2" adapter. (not pictured) Seems to only be a loosening wrench, as I don't see any way to reverse it, but that's fine by me.

I also picked up a beautiful 1/2" THOR drill for $10. I've started to collect THOR brand drills, I nab them whenever I see them. This is the first one I've seen that's reversible. It also has a proper trigger, so this will replace my modern DeWalt :3

I think the previous owner had some issues with people taking his tools... I've never seen such aggressive owners marks before... No getting those out! lol

Does the rear end cap turn to change direction?

It didn't... But I popped the cap off and oiled it and now it does. Awesome! Thanks :D

Any idea what the torque rating on this thing is? It says it's a "Size 8U" "Model E" 5 Amps
