Received these 2 tools as a gift and need a little help with parts/adapters/connectors to attach in order to use these. Dewalt DCF885 https://www.amazon.com/Dewalt-Dcf885-Lithium-Impact-Driver/dp/B014W2OWZU (Cordless 1/4" Impact Driver) Dewalt DCF883 (mine is not the B model but it is the same tool as in link) https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DCF883B-20-Volt-Lithium-8-Inch/dp/B007NVSQEQ (Cordless Impact Wrench with Hog Ring, 3/8-Inch) It seems I need to purchase some type of extension(s) or adapters as none of my existing small sockets match these. Would someone have a suggestion or two as to what I could buy off Amazon or Home Depot to make use of these as I literally have no extensions or sockets or screwset/drills, nothing that mates with these two.

I have a MAXFIT 3.5 inch #2 Robertson and it's the nicest one I've ever had, I totally recommend them.

Tekton is nice but laser etching instead of roll marked = no bueno.

Great suggestions, thank you all ! For the DCF883 Hog Ring, 3/8-Inch, is there a link anyone would have for a short adapter or something so I could use it with my existing sockets ?
