Answer: 
Yes there is such a tool although I don't have a brand name.It looks like a standard screw driver with a flat end where the blade would be.It has two small steel rods protruding from that end that cut into the screw to allow the screw to be turned counter clock wise. The tool I have is called a ONE WAY SCREW REMOVER. ( Good name for it huh) part # 8935 # 12-13. I think we found it at a company where we purchase toilet partitions.

Answer: 
In the long run, the most successful method I have found for this task is to drill a hole slightly smaller than the root diameter of the screw into the head of the screw and then use an "easy out." Grainger sells a variety of different styles and sizes - one of them should be appropritae for the task. For very small screws - I just drill out the screw and then use a larger screw to replace it.

Answer: 
You COULD use an impact driver (many of these have a 3/8" square drive) and hit it with the air hammer. You'll need one hand for the driver, of course, but if you've got the hand(s), this could work very well.

Answer: 
Try looking for extensions under impact drivers. There are several brands that offer these as part of their impact toll offering. The Grainger catalogue lists sizes from 1-3/4" long to 12" in 3/8" in their impact sockets section. I sugget you use the shortest extension possible for safety's sake.

I need a small (2" - 3" or so) circular saw that fits like a drill bit into a conventional electric hand held drill. The saw has a mandrelle that tightens into the jaws of the drill. The mandrelle extents the blade a few inches from jaws of the drill socket. What is this called and do you sell it? What category do I look under on your website or who do I call?

Answer: 
I find that magnetic tipped tools attract a lot of metal shavings that I object to. However, every once in a while we all need a magnetic-tipped tool. For short term applications, just stick a magnet to the shank of the screw driver – it will extend the magnetic field through the screw driver. Simply removing the magnet will return the tool to its original state.
Depending on the steel used in the tool, repeatedly stroking the tool in one direction against a magnet can magnetize the tool. To de-magnetize a tool, just strike it severely against a hard surface such as a vise.
Induction coils can be used to both magnetize and de-magnetize tools on a larger scale or for more permanent results.

Hello,

I'm looking for a tool that allows you to make a rectangular cutout in metal.

I've been told that there is such a tool that allows you to attach a die on each side of the metal after drilling a hole through it for attaching the two haves of the die. Once attached the dies are screwed together to cut the metal.

Do you offer and what is it called.

Thanks, Bob

Answer: 
You might try using an infrared camera or IR thermometer to locate cooler spots which could indicate running or evaporating water. The old-timers' trick of taping plastic sheet down over the slab in various points over-night to find condensation which indicates hydraulic pressure under the slab may also help locate in a very general way the area you will need to excavate. I doubt that ultrasonic leak detectors will be of much use through concrete, but haven't tried them.
