I was wondering if anyone here would be able to point me out to a
picture or an illustration showing the mechanism or the action of a
cordless impact driver. I'm currently writing an article on this
subject and since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'd like to use
a picture instead of trying to describe it...
Thanks for any help.

Are you saying you want to include someone else's work, that is
possibly copyright protected, in your article, without first obtaining
"106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of
cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses." - Elwood

I didn't read quite that much into the OP's question, but...
Perhaps he could contact a manufacturer of one of these tools and ask
if they have a cross-section or exploded illustration he could use.
Most manufacturers happily supply this kind of material. After all,
it's about marketing.
We have zero problem getting such illustrations for our publications
Makita provides both a cutaway view as well as an exploded view on
their web site.
Copying a picture or graphic without permission could constitute
infringement. The same is true of professional models who exhibit
their portfolio online to seek work engagements.
Just because it can be viewed does not grant copy permission.

Thank you for caring so much about copyright infringement... My
intention was only to show a real picture of an impact driver
mechanism to a graphic artist so he/she can make his/her own
simplified illustration for the purpose of our article which is
explaining the impact mechanism. It's a lot easier for the artist to
draw something when they get to see it first.
I'm working for a serious magazine and we're responsible on that
Thanks for any help.
P.S.: I already had the Makita picture but felt it was not enough
explanation as we don't see how the hammer strike the anvil.
