Default Re: Does This Sound Right??

Ditto on the cordless helps to speed the process, but final tightening should always be by hand. I use a torque wrench.

The nice thing about the cordless drill is that I can use the adjustable clutch to tighten the bolts evenly by alternately tightening opposite bolts, then up the clutch a couple of clicks and doing it again.

The bad thing about the cordless drill is that stupid me bought quality- 18V Milwaukee 1/2"- and that son of a gun weighs more than my 4th born. I'm kicking around getting a 10 to 12 volt Li Ion power driver for this light duty work.

And yes, one rubber ring on the inside, one on the outside- grips the spokes better with less stress points on the spokes.
29/10ths cubic inches of raw power.
