New 1/2" Drill
« on: January 21, 2019, 04:10:33 PM »
Finally got around to matching the 3/8 snappy drill I've had and loved for a few years. Snagged a new 1/2" 500rpm reversible Sioux made snappy off da bay for about 35% of retail. Stuck a Rohm single sleeve, ratcheting, keyless chuck and dynaswivel on it to make it match the 3/8ths. I really like these chucks. They grab like crazy and are easy on the hand. For shop use, I prefer the power and compactness of pneumatic tools vs corded and cordless.

Very nice. That is a stout side handle to keep from breaking your wrist.

Good torque from air?
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

Yes. It's a 1HP motor.

They are hungry hungry hippos for air though. CEJN 320 fittings keep all the tools happy and well fed.
