  • 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.

      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.
