Those are top quality, or at least used to be... that's all they used
at Carolina Steel - bridge fabrication - when I worked there in
Greensboro the summer of '70.  Big honkin' ones.

Works flawlessly.
I love the adjustable torque setting as opposed to my Chinee special.

Yer lucky,Stan.
Some rebuilds just dont last,IMHO.Depending on how much abuse they recieved before taking a crap and then sent out to be rebuilt.
Speaking from experience here from my observation at my own shop..
 
You get what you pay for and that is the truth about impact guns.
 
Our shop supplies the tire techs with guns and never an expensive one.The cheap ones have a short life in the harsh environment and a rebuild can cost almost as much as the gun.
It may be a "made in USA' gun buit the rebuild will have Chinese guts in it.Poop.
My mechanics buy their own top quality guns and never loan them out.

In our Union Contract we have free tool repair. If a tool is non repairable the company pays for 75% of the cost of a new one. Takes the worry out of buying used air tools. If it doesn't work I just turn it in for repair and it's good as new.

Have a Japanese-made Craftsman that is actually quite good, not all
impacts are Chinee.  Even those are somewhat better than they were
5-10 yrs ago...guess even they've had to improve to compete, maybe with
each other.

While reasearching BB cranks, I've come to find out  that no one, and I mean no one, forges cranks in the U.S. anymore.  They're all Chinese now... Commando12009-08-24 16:45:32

This is the MAC tools 3/8" impact that i got and it is incredible how light (2.6 lbs)and powerfull it is! http://www.mactools.com/product/tabid/120/p-318388-aw280q.aspx Those older CP impacts are great,because they are designed to take plenty of abuse! By the way....Ingersol Rand makes the MAC impacts for them,.......i did not know that or i would have got it for a bunch cheaper, instead of paying for the MAC logo!!!!

Some of the air tools I could care less about.  But the 1/2 drive impact, to me, is the most important.  I have a IR 721 and I love it.  I have another that is over 20 years old.  Yhe only bad think is you have to grease the knockers every now and then.  Find a greaser for them. . . .  I use one from a chain saw.  I have a CP 3/8, but rarely use it.  My 3/8 air ratchet is a different story.  I run them hard and believe it or not, the ones I buy from Husky, seem to last the best.  And their cheap.  I bought a 1/4" air ratchet, never used it.  Probably because it's burried in my garage somewhere.
 
I do use 3/8 air couplers though. . .  They deliver more volume and keep the tool cooler. 
 
Remember to oil your tools periodically.  Very important

Another addition to the tool box:
I was in Tractor Supply yesterday and for 13 bucks I just couldn't resist...

Some of the Harbor Freight stuff isn't too bad and when it's on sale
it's dirt cheap - I love the D/A I got from them and the body saw is OK
too, paid like $20 for it. A guy I know who restores Mopar muscle cars
buys 10 H F paint guns at a time and then throws them away after using
'em a few times... but he does only single stage enamel like the
factory and wet sands everything down.
