Draper expert impact driver

Post by pointblank0 » Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:10 pm

Saved me again today when my pad pin covers had seized. This basic bit of kit is a must have for seized screws and torques etc. Well worth the £15 or so, with plenty of spare parts, will last you forever.

Use it before you decide to go through the drilling out process.

Yeah, I have used this before as well.

For rounded off bolts, I just file it back to shape! Works a treat!

Its one of those tools that you wont need it for a few years, then it will save your bacon.
According to snap-on reps, you need everything lol

Im too poor for snap-on... everything I buy is snap-off! :crybaby:

I have several rounded off bolts on my bike that need replacing, so this is best to try first?

Have you tried single hex sockets? What size are they?

Not entirely sure on size, and excuse my lack of knowledge, what are single hex sockets? When I say rounded off bolts they are literally rusty and where the Phillips used to go is just a messed up rounded off hole.

Sometimes you can jam one in enough to get a purchase and get a tough screw out. I imagine that is what hooner means.... *awaits to be corrected*

If you have a Jap bike a must buy is a set of JIS screwdrivers!

Jap screws are different to ours and our screwdrivers cam out too easily and chew them up!

JIS (Japanese industry standard) screwdrivers are great but they aren't cheap!

You can also hammer a flat head in to make a slot and undo them that way :). Also soaking in WD40 for a few minutes helps
