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.

For using socket:

This is the search for socket adapter (cut and paste):

you have no 3/8 drive sockets? if not, it would be smart to get some i guess. lots of use there.

For the DCF883 impact wrench, you should use impact sockets designed for that purpose (won't shatter). Having said that, I'm sure that many get away with using regular chrome sockets....as long as you are lucky.

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.

I have several 1/4" DeWalt and Makita (and even a Ryobi) cordless impact drivers...

They are HANDY HANDY HANDY tools to have!

I have several of these sets (I do not use impact sockets with them):

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 ?

This is what you would need for 1/4 inch drive sockets

Sunex 3303 3/8-Inch Female x 1/4-Inch Male Super Socket Adapter with Friction Ball https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002WQELRI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Fj.8DbJX1CAPS

But yes get yourself a set of 3/8 drive impact sockets you can get a decent generic brand that will serve you well for not a lot of money

I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.
