Wrench Fetcher
Tearing everything apart most of it rusted stuck Ect needed way to get things off . Was at HF bought cheep set of 1/2 inch impact extentions and the 1/2 drive screw driver bits . Ground the sides of the extention to 2 flats that a 3/4 wrench will slide over . Little heat , air hammer in the end of extention twisting of the wrench dose wonders . The HF screw bits will break quickly , knock out the bit and buy some Kal yool or some other replacment havent brok one of those yet. They sell simmalar set up on Amazon such for bout twice what i have in this

They will also work well if you put the bits in a regular ol' ratchet. Push down on the ratchet while you turn with the other hand.

Snap On screwdrivers have a place where you can put a wrench. Helps give more torque.

I just received a set of clutch head bits that will fit in my 1/4 inch hex battery impact driver. Don't have anything yet to try them out on, but I'll be working on the doors at some point. Hopefully the impact action will work well.

The key to its success is that the tool does not provide any turning torque action which would destroy the fastener head. The turning action is provided manually by the handle.
The only thing which the air hammer provides is shaking loose the debris in the threads.
Once you get the bit on the fastener head, you slowly pull the trigger. Then you slowly move the handle back and forth by hand. Once it is free, you take the fastener off with a wrench or by hand.
It is particularly handy for clutch head screws.

It says to be used with an Pneumatic Rivet Gun, would this work with and Air Hammer?

Air Hammer pretty much equals a Pneumatic Rivet Gun, so yes. They use the same .401 end that tool has.
What Carl said about not using the power tool to turn makes sense.
