  • metric nut drivers

    Does anyone know where I can find a 10mm nut driver/bit? The type that will fit & lock into a cordless impact driver. I have no trouble finding standard sizes, but can't seem to find metric sizes.

    Thanks

    Get a 1/4" hex drive to 1/4" sq. drive adapter and put it in your cordless drill. Then you can use whatever 1/4" sq. drive std. or metric socket you want.

    The adapter should be less than $2 at Sears, HD, Lowes, and ACE Hardware stores, and many other places.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      I'm surprised your impact driver did'nt come with a hex to square drive bit.
      Once you get one, you can also buy a 1/4 to 3/8 adapter so you can use your 3/8 sockets as well.

            Those adapters work well in a drill/driver but from my experience they don't do as well in an impact driver. The first time I tried using one in my 14.4V impact driver the adapter broke in half. Thinking it might just be a bad adapter, I put in another and it also broke right away. Granted these were el cheapo adapters but a good one probably won't be cheap either.

                  As Badger Dave,& DCDUDE mentioned, I would recomend going up to 1/2" square drive, and then you can use the heavy duty bits & tops that are good in an impact, or pneumatic tool. I recently had a (cheap & nasty) 13mm top explode in my (visor protected ) face, while using an impact tool, so a few dollars more might be well spent!

                    Thanks for all the ideas everyone. Truth is, I won't be using it in a impact driver. At work I frequently use a cordless screwdriver which has a impact style chuck(locks bit in place). Ideally I'd would like to find a 10mm magnetic nutdriver bit! Finding standard sizes is easy, but can't seem to find metric.
