Fasteners Hardware and fasteners, including all types of screws, nails, hinges, springs, and other devices you may find in the hardware aisle of your local retailer or supplier. It used to be so easy, when you needed to drill a hole for the first time you were out of your parents’ house, your dad proudly took you to the local hardware store to pick up your first Black and Decker drill. Impact drivers work in a similar way to a drill in that they spin the bit that you have attached. The typical twisting chuck of a drill in the foreground with the quick release of an impact driver behind it. Hammer drills start with a traditional drilling action and have the same kind of chuck as the drill. Hammer drills tend to do the best when working in concrete, masonry, stone, and other similar materials. We had to anchor the ramp to concrete on the end, so we employed a hammer drill to make the holes before using it to drive the Tapcons in place.

However, as accessories are being made to include more drilling functions, some companies are offering impact drivers with multiple speed and torque settings.

You'll often find Kenny chatting up engineers at media events to better understand the chemistry and physics behind tool technology. The chuck is strong enough to hold onto just about any shape that fits into it, including circular drill bits. The downside is that it requires the bit or driver to have a special locking feature to fit it, and your round drill bits and even basic driving bits won’t fit.


So for projects like building a deck or putting up a wood fence, the drill is a fine choice. Imagine you’re working on a bolt that is hard to budge, so you grab a ratchet for extra leverage. Impact drivers have a lot more torque than drills and some applications require the use of impact rated bits, not just the standard ones that came in that big kit for $19.99 at Christmas time.
The exact uses for those can be saved for a later discussion since we really just want to understand the major differences for now. To knock it loose, you take a hammer and hit the handle of the ratchet to deliver extra, but short lived, torque. That’s what an impact driver does, though it can do it several thousand times per minute. The impact driver is much stronger than a drill in terms of the way it can deliver that extra torque to break loose stuck bolts and screws or to drive them deeper.
