At the time it was unique in a couple of aspects, and still is. Name one for the bonus points.

Big fish, how about Chicago Pneumatic, one of the first us made air tools. It may even have been a rebadged Skil unit. I am guessing that it had adjustable torque settings. It is called an angle head impact gun.

To the untrained eyes they look like 2 bent pieces of wire...(not the ruler)

It's not a re-badged Skil unit, as you can see, it is a Skil unit!

One of the things that made it unique is the air motor/vanes are in the handle.( made for a large air motor) The impact mechanism is in the head driven by a bevel gear setup, easy to get to under the triangular name plate/cap.


There's another feature......................anybody?
