Both John.

Typically I use my 12vdc impact driver. Spending 30 years in Automotive R&D I understand the issue with an impact wrench and fasteners. I usually do what your not supposed to, throttle back the trigger when using smaller diameter screws. It has been very rare that I strip or break a deck, structural or cabinet screw. The Kregs broke easily for me and may have been adversely effected by the Rosewood. Switched over to the clutched 18vdc drill and still broke a few. When to GRK cabinet screws after grinding down the heads to fit the Kreg holes and none broke, drill or impact.
