    Impact Driver and DRILL Question

    Hello...i am currently shopping around for a new cordless drill but i want to get the most bang for my buck that i can possibly get...i can get a cordless drill and turn it into an impact driver with this adapter Link ..
    or i can get a real Impact driver and turn it into a drill with this adapter Link ...
    the problem is, with the drill to impact driver adapter it might not be strong enough for real use ( also depending on the drill you originally have )
    and the problem with the impact driver to drill chuck, it might wobble a bit and might not get any precision drilling from it......any body with enough experience to help me out here and clear what would actually work here?...thank you..

    thank you guys...i was originally looking at this one M28? Cordless Lithium-Ion 7/16" Hex Impact Wrench | Milwaukee Tool ..and wanted to squeeze every penny out of it by turning it into a precision drill also with the adapter....would that work?..or id be better off with your recommendations? thank you guys..

    Nope.
    1. you'll never get a drill to not wobble in the hex.
    2. You cant turn off the hammer function.

    You can get drills with the hex drive, good for wood. Enough force to drill metals, it will start its hammer function breaking drills off.

    i was thinking maybe this would work..this SHOCKWAVE? 1/4" HEX ADAPTER SQ 3/8" | Milwaukee Tool then on top of this adapter this http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=21595 ...and you would effectively turn your impact driver to a high powered srill with minimal wobble...of coarse to turn off the impact/hammering effect would also help....any good drills that you can turn off the impact/hamering on?...

    Last couple of power tools I got from these guys, CPO Outlets | New and Reconditioned Power Tools, Pressure Washers, Tankless Water Heaters, Vacuums, Ceiling Fans, and more! They couldn't be told from new, and the warranty was twice the length of what the factory gives.

    They sell under a couple of different names, but still the same company. A lot of people don't want a "reconditioned" tool. But with the better warranty and prices, I look there first.

    I always figured a 'reconditioned' was better than a new one. The reconditioned is gone over one at a time to figure out whats wrong, totally inspected. A new one YOUR the final inspector.
