The Automotive area has a Kobalt 1/2 Air Impact Wrench. This tool requires training before use. As with any air tool, this tool requires regular maintenance.
Please only use the black impact sockets with this tool. DO NOT use chrome sockets with it.
You should use care when tightening fasteners with the air wrench, it delivers a lot of torque and can easily strip threads or break fasteners.
In the Metal and Woodworking shop, members are required to have Personal Protective Equipment to use the tools. You are encouraged to bring your own, but we also have a PPE cabinet that can be seen to your right as you walk in the door. Some tools have more or less required PPE than others. See below to check what kind of PPE this tool requires!
Some tools at Area 515 have consumables: materials that are required to use the tool. For example, sanders have sandpaper as a consumable. See below for the consumables of this tool!
