General Discussion / Milwaukee Impact Driver Finish
« Last post by Model 12 on June 12, 2024, 07:20:08 AM »

M18 Impact Driver. Model 2650 B55A. First of these models out
 of the gate. The parts schematics are dated August 2008. I got it
exactly 15 years ago. (DSCF1313)
I posted here in September when I replaced the Steel Balls that fit in
the Anvil. (DSCF1314) Worked but didn't have it quite right. Blamed the
Compression Spring. Figured on getting a new one before doing more. 
Within the Collet is a single compression spring with a washer and
retaining ring. Milwaukee used this sort of thing on up through
successive models at least till 2015. Evolved into this Compression
Spring with a loop bend that digs in beneath the Steel Ball ( 2024-06-11
 1) A secondary light wire spring (not pictured)  floats above this
Steel Ball
Compression Spring (DSCF1697) installation with these older models is a
real chore. If not for this mini-driver set (DSCF1702) I got at some
market stall in Pusan, Korea 33 years ago, I wouldn't have been able to
do it.
Anyone here who has one of these older models on up till 2658 or so; 
(DSCF1706) the Spring #39 followed by the Sleeve #38, slips over the
Anvil #36. With the Washer #40 on top, you have to shove that spring way
 down till it's within the Sleeve. Keeping steady pressure right there,
get the Retaining Ring #41 snapped over it. It looks like this (DSF1703)
Always wondered why near everyone refers to Steel Balls as "Ball

I pick up any interesting or solidly made gardening tools, usually becaus they are inexpensive and once cleaned up make nice gifts to fellow gardeners .  I rarely see Felco pruners, but when I do I buy them if reasonably priced.

Those little calipers are great tools.  At least the ones I have fit in the change pocket of my jeans for trips to the hardware store, to make sure I get the right size of whatever small thing I'm getting.

After picking up some Felco pruners some years back at a yard sale, I won't use any other brand.

Estate sale buy,  the ratchet is a Craftsman 1/4 drive peat head ratchet with quick release button from 1981-83 (Type 7). The oil port on the top is something you don't see on more modern ratchets.  It came with 5 deep well sockets and parts of three sets of short sockets.  There were a couple of the really deep Craftman sockets in 1/2 drive along with a Snap-On deep socket.  The pruners include a Felco 2 and a vintage pair made in Italy.

We all know what a "Board Stretcher" is! Try a Google search for "Stretcher Roll" Too hard for me to explain , but basically used in saw making/fabricating.

You can go to your local Radio Shack & pick up a new type N alkaline.  Mine still works, although slightly yellow.  I've always taken the battery out when not using it to avoid the corrosion.  Battery is actually readily available.

27 inches extended.  It has a light, but no battery.  No idea if the light works.
