Ingersoll Rand W5132

So a couple of months ago Ingersoll Rand sent me what was then a top secret – their new W5132 compact impact wrench. Essentially, it’s a surprisingly small (6.5″ long on the business end) and light weight (5.1 pounds) 3/8″ impact wrench that makes an astronomical 365 foot-pounds of torque. I know, that’s just a number… But, this thing makes serious power. In fact, more than once a lot of us here in the shop wondered if maybe that’s too much power for a 3/8″ drive. For those that do, Ingersoll also offers the same size and weight unit in an even more powerful 1/2″ drive – it’s called the W5152.

So a new user just found something pretty cool… It’s a parallel lift of unknown origin, but looks to be built to handle some pretty heavy jobs. Know anything about it?

Spotless Rinse… That actually works…

I’ve always been enamored by the “spot free rinse” offered at my local DIY car wash places. It’s something I ponder every time I wave that rented wand around – water barely flowing as if it was only a half hearted attempt to piss after a single beer. Am I wasting my money and time with this thing? Does spot free rinsing actually work or is this some Jedi mind trick fostered by the marketing department at an evil car wash manufacturing plant located somewhere in Poughkeepsie?
