    My 40 sat by the beach most of its life. Needless to say, every single but and bolt is rusted in place.

    Last week I saw an add for a screwdriver attachment for an air hammer. This thing works like a charm. Within 10 seconds I was turning out old rusted screws. I wish I had this when I first started tearing my 40 apart!

    That looks like something I could use. I had to heat the p*ss out of my windshield hinge screws to get them out.

    I picked one up a few months ago and it saved my arse last weekend doing the highlander iac valve. Took an hour job down to a few seconds.

    Thanks for this advice. This thread should be in the tools section but we'll let it sit here a bit first.

    I have had one for a long time used it on my samurai as it has a Gillion screws. Yes it is a life saver get the screws out in pronto time and doesn't break them off.

    Oh yea! Those are the s***! I have the shake-n-break version too. Perfect for seized windshield screws.

    If it came with a JIS bit..that would be perfect

    Btway, I looked for bit drivers for JIS and don't think I found any. I have 5 vessel JIS drivers, but would love some bits

    I've had one for nearly ten years. Snap-on version. Only way to go for rusty screws.

    As others have stated I purchased a blue point version of these about 10 years back. Used it primarly then on master cylinder screws for dirt bikes that were caked in dirt and mud. Works great even on stripped Phillips screws as it hammers the Phillips bit deep into the screw.

    Using this idea I made a tool for rusted bolts that may be slightly rounded. It is a air impact hammer driver that has a 3/8 drive Socket that "hammers" the socket on and you then turn it with a vice grips. This was in the pre-impact driver days.

    Picture shows with a flat head which also works well

    I'm pretty sure you can buy JIS impact bits from Vessel. I'm pretty sure that is where I got mine.
