    Nice looking impact wrench. Yeah, thats one thing I would like to invest in pretty quick. I've got a crappy Craftsman impact that came in a free kit with the compressor I bought. That thing will barely brake lug nuts loose (and I torque my lug nuts with a torque wrench to 100 ft-lbs.).

    How big of a compressor do you need to keep that thing going?

    When I was young, I went to mechanic school and got to buy any Snap-On equipment for 1/2 price. I quit early on because it's a damn hard way to make a living. When I went to college, I sold most of that stuff including some air tools....and boy do I reget it now. I guess it was the right decision when I was broke, but it's still hard to think of all the stuff I gave away.
