My new Uni ratchet tool broke after a few uses. I think I was getting a little too heavy-handed with it as Uni says it shouldn’t be used to tighten screws fully. Hard to control yourself when your frothing to paddle out! The same thing happened to another friend recently so I imagine it’s a pretty common failure.
I was using a small 12v drill to run the long screws down into the Al mast of my axis setup. It was super fast which I liked bc those bolts (like the uni aluminum mast/fuse bolts) are really long and take a while to thread in by hand.
I would usually have to break those screws free with a t-handle torx though when disassembling. Then back to the drill to quickly back them all the way out.
The speed of a power tool probably isn’t as big of time saver for those with carbon masts as the screws that hold mast to fuse together aren’t nearly as long.
Maybe I need to work on a way to motorize the uni ratchet
