Question about Craftsman 1/2" Impact Wrench
I have the same problem, brand new impact wrench, brand new impact sockets, but can't get a socket onto the gun. Leaned on it with all my weight, wiggled, nothing. and yes they are both 1/2" drive. WTH?

I think your meaning that the socket doesnt seem to wanna fit on the square head of the gun. There is a small ring that helps to keep the sockets on the gun, and if this ring is to stiff, it makes it really hard to get a socket installed. You can either try wiggling with effort to get it on, or what alot of pro's do is remove that little ring altogether. Remember if you do remove that ring the socket can fly off easily if you take the pressure off the work your doing.
