My 30 year old Bluepoint 1/2 inch drive does not have much power. I do not use it much but it seems to have had more power in the past. I took it apart checked to see that the vanes were free, reassemble and no improvement. With the compressor reading 140 psi, I would guess that there was atleast 125+ psi at the gun (25 ft of 3/8 hose).
Looking at various adds - there is quite a price range on 1/2 in. impacts. The ones that appear to be mid pack to better typically list the torque. The torque values seem to vary widely. Question - are these torque specs like Sears compressor hp specs? If so, how do I make a good judgement as to what to consider buying? Gladly receive suggestions from the group as to brands/models of impact guns to consider. I am thinking of spending $60 to $80 but will consider more IF spending more will give better results.
