O/T Question about sockets for impact driver and air rachet

Recommended Posts

This is probably a very dumb question, but I have an air rachet and impact driver that I suspect I will use only on rare occasions. Can either of these tools be used with a good quality set of standard (not impact) sockets? I have a good set of regular sockets, but I don't really want to buy a full set of impact sockets that I'll use on rare occasions if I can make due with the regular ones.

I suspect the answer for the impact wrench will be that I need the impact sockets, but how about the air rachet? :cry:

I've been using standard sockets with impact drivers for many years w/o a problem. The only broken sockets I"ve ever had were with standard handles. Weird.
