Last year sometime I broke the chuck on my cordless drill.

A new one was only 10 so I got one.

The old one got thrown in a heap with all the other tools I have broken.

One day with nothing better to do I welded a short 3/8 socket extension in place of the chuck.

The tool drives nuts and bolts very well.

Also by making a starter dog it starts my very old petrol cement mixer which I use for boat ballast and makes easy work of my caravan legs.

It has not the power to do a road wheel but will take the lug nuts off once loosened.

Very useful tool.
