Chicago Pneumatic was one of the first manufacturers of industrial pneumatic(air) tools. I have never seen one before either. Interesting, you sparked my curiosity. If you don’t know what it is,. Post more pics from different angles.

From the pics and you said it’s about 3ft in length, I’m going to guess some sort of large air ratchet, grinder or maybe a drill.

Strange looking it’s long, cumbersome and kind of franken-looking. It makes me wonder why? Form follows function, so I would be tempted to take it apart to see why…

That one is 23", I’ll measure this one up today, but now we know they’re called Nutrunner’s

lol, I never thought of that, figured it would make a nice wall hanger in the garage :grin:

I just grabbed one standing against a trash can, without including the 1/4" fitting it measures 31"

Is that a 1/2 inch adapter on the head or is it for 1/2 inch only. It looks too big to be a 1/2 inch drive. Seams it might be a 3/4 drive for working on large machines or locomotives.

Ok so yes, there’s a larger square drive under it but it measures 5/8 with a tape, I’ll have to see if any of my 3/4" drive sockets fit it :man_shrugging:
