High tech toys and tools
#1
My newest high tech tool was a Christmas present from a friend.
A Makita model LXDT04 impact driver.

I never had an impact driver before.
I used to drive the long 3" and 3.5" Robertson square head screws that I use for framing using a 3/8" drill with a screwdriver bit in the chuck.
That is really hard on a light duty electric drill.
I have burned out several of them over the years.
Having an impact driver is just so much better.
It can drive long screws into hard wood like a knife going through butter.

I read this to my father in law when talking to him over the phone. He said an impact driver is like night & day compared to electric drills.... He has one too...

If you need an impact driver but don't want to (or can't) use electricity, there's a hammer powered model. Just search for hand impact driver.
