I normally use my 3/8" drive, and 1/2" drive craftsman sockets with an impact wrench, stupidly long breaker bars etc, have yet to break a socket, and I abuse the hell out of them.


If your having issues with bolts rounding out, you may want to use the correct sized socket :Stan:

Not rounding when tighting but rounding a rusted stuck bolt, my span-on's seem to grab the head better.

How the heck could that happen to a new socket at only 35lbs of torque?

I mean I have broken them by pounding a smaller size onto a stripped bolt, but those have just split. I have used them on impacts. I have put a 6' cheater bar and a floor jack on them. I still haven't had one self destruct on me like that. Apparently it committed suicide...

I use normal craftsman sockets all the time with large impact guns.. Its fun. Never had one crumble before, I have had them crack and split wide open.

Your kitty looks cute too.

At 35 Lbs that was a defective socket. Good thing is they will replace that for free. By using all the tips given in this thread, I think you should be able to get all the particles left behind out. Does suck though when this happens. You spend so much time trying to keep dirt and debris out, and then this.

I had to read your first post to my wife. Makes me smile when a girl writes "Plasti-gauging" and "Pistons". Nice to see girls wrenching. Just knowing what plasti-gauge is cool, let alone doing it.

Seems like it shouldnt of broken, some of you are blaming Craftsman... I have used both my Craftsman and Mac on impact guns, and basically beat the hell ou of them. Things like that usually get abused working in a ATV shop. Havent had a problem with either. It was probably a one time thing for ya.

Yea, and let us know how it is going with getting the pieces out
