    I have the Ryobi impact driver as well. Mine is pretty weak compared to my Northern Tool electric impact. I seriously doubt they can meet their 1600 in lb claims. But, it is a decent little driver. Used it to drive all the 3/8" thick 6" long lag screws for my fence a few years back. Worked great.
    Followup on the little Ryobi impact driver that claims 1600 inch-pounds.

    Today I replaced a tire on the little watering trailer pictured above, and torqued the lugs with the Ryobi until the socket wouldn't move. Then I used a beam torque wrench to finish tightening the lugs. It took just over 50 ft/lbs to tighten the lugs beyond what the Ryobi could do. The Ryobi is very handy but this is a huge variance from claimed specs.

    Doesn't (claimed) 1600 inch-pounds translate to 133 ft lbs? What am I missing here?

    Don't see that you've missed anything, your conversion to ft lbs is correct. I'm sure that if you ask them there will be a long list of variables that will affect output, such as battery charge, ambiant air temperature, lubrication, etc.

    Might as well put it in the catagory of the 5hp 110V air compressor motors. They can make the compressor motor hit the rated specification, but outside of the lab it doesn't happen.

    In reference to scfm and cfm scfm is a rating at standard conditions. Been years since I was involved with industrial air
    I
    Compressors but scfm allows a comparison regardless of pressure while cfm values are at stated pressures. Does that make any sense.

    SCFM relates to air at STP (standard temperature and pressure).


    STP - Standard Temperature and Pressure & NTP - Normal Temperature and Pressure

    This 10" tile/brick saw is worth every penny. It preformed flawlessly in thousands of cuts of pavers and cement blocks.

    The blades that you can buy at harbor freight work better than the name brands that cost twice as much. Here is the finished project picture on the TBN Good Morning thread.

    I did do like one of the reviewers suggested: I put the pump in a clean 5 gallon bucket and put another 5 gallon bucket under the drain hole in the drip pan. I did not recirculate the muddy water from the clay pavers. I only had to fill the 5 gallon bucket about three times a day.

    Thanks for the info on the coupon! I just bought this jack, and with shipping, two welding magnets, a file, and heat shrink wire wrap, it came out to be just under $80. Great deal! I have been looking for a decent floor jack for some time, and this one looks good, and has good reviews, so I will let you know!

    I'm not positive but recall reading somewhere that the above aluminum jack was the single most sold item at HF. I've had one for several years and no complaints from me.

    I'd like to nominate this impact chisel

    Super Duty Air Hammer with Chisels

    It's usually on "sale" for $12 or so and every now and then maybe $10. For that price alone it's hard to beat but it actually works very well. It seems little different than the quality one I used as a kid to remove exhaust systems. That's mostly what I do with it as well as sheet metal things. I've chiseled a few nuts off with it and it worked fine but I would question a steady diet of that kind of work. Not that I have any reason since it has worked so well for me. I also used it as a blunt tipped air hammer to pound something out. It comes with a number of chisels, etc.

    It's hard to imagine the impact part of this going bad since it's so simple. I guess the temper of the chisels could be an issue but mine look like new despite some pretty hard work. Is easily worth the price.
