Answer: 
First off, I do not recommend doing this. You stand a good chance of stripping out the screw heads. I am not sure that the impact rated bits and extensions are even rated for this use.
If you still want to do this, I would buy an impact rated bit set, and 1/4" 6 sided impact socket. You can then epoxy the bit holder in the socket. At least that way, you are using product that may hold up. But it is Read More

Answer: 
A well known auction site that starts with an "e," from the uk, seventeen total -- for all three size square to 1/4" hex -- though you'll only use the 1/4" to 1/4". Theirs/mine is NOT impact, turns out, but solid, and I back off driving when I even suspect things are tight.

A well known auction site that starts with an "e," from the uk, seventeen total -- for all three size square to 1/4" hex -- though you'll only use the 1/4" to 1/4". Theirs/mine is NOT impact, turns out, but solid, and I back off driving when I even suspect things are tight. There are some on a mega book/marketplace site that starts with an "a" that are seventeen for one 1/4" to 1/4" plus shipping which is all you want anyway; I THINK they were impact but I can't swear to it.
I hope others are reading this as I very slightly revise my 100% enthusiasm down to maybe 99% -- Milwaukee sent me a m12 fuel driver that had battery issues, but accidentally replaced it with a m12 fuel drill/driver/hammer. The wrench and driver are extremely comfortable in my large hands but just disappear -- really, usefully tiny. The size of the m12 hammer drill is directly in between these other two and their m18 -- and most other 18Vs. So, basically, it's a dwarf-full size, if that makes sense.
For 12 volts, I can't imagine anything the 18v can do that the hammer can't, and hammer mode is selectable. You'll have a much easier time finding impact ready attachments should you want to use the hammer mode regularly. Attachments potentially fight the mechanics of an impact wrench, and non-impact ready attachments can, theoretically, become part of your forehead.
I have had no problem using my wrench as a driver, but what sounds and feels like a clutch engaging is the impact working on resistance, so you need to be ready to rip your finger off the trigger when using it as a driver. Nothing's been damaged, but honestly, Milwaukee should think about selling their M12 hammer and M18 hammer, end of story -- the price difference isn't nearly the versatility difference, and the M12 fuel hammer comes with one normal and one extended battery and out of the box put a 1/2" bit 6" into a walnut stump (hammer mode) in under 40 seconds. A compact .45 is still a .45, and the m12 hammer is an all purpose, get-it-done.
If you remove frozen bolts with direct 1/4" sockets for a living, by all means, get this 12v and see if you don't swear it's 18.
So what was the question again?
Milwaukee makes 3/8" & 1/2" to 1/4" hex quick change, I THINK impact ready, but apparently not 1/4" to 1/4".
a s tool (UK auto tool specialist) on that electronic bay; definitely solid adapters, and you should get it in five days. Otherwise search that south american rain forest site, and when you pull one up be sure to check ALL the vendors' prices incl shipping -- you might find a much better deal that I did. Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty powerful little driver First of all, this is important to know: This is a 1/4" square drive tool. As far as I can tell, nobody makes 1/4" square drive impact bits, except very expensive ones. The only bits I could find are one set of Metric sockets made by Milwaukee tool. Now, I was told by someone at HD that I might try to use an ordinary 1/4" hex non-impact socket with a 1/4" drive as an adapter and it may hold up. I have been using it (shown in photo) with Philips and Torx bits for about a week now with no breakage. So far so good. The tool itself is a delight to use, being small and easy to get into tight places. I like the charge status lamps on the side and the small workspace lamp on the front. There is a two-selection force switch on the top with light to indicate the force being used. Battery life is good. I have used the tool about 15 minutes each day for a week and the battery lamps showed 1/2 charge before I decided to recharge it. That took about an hour to get to full charge. And by the way, this tool's motor is brush-less and so should last longer than a typical motor of it's size. There is a metal belt clip on the side and a forward-reverse switch. The battery is easily removed and reinserted. July 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by can't believe this is 12v they pack a lot into these 12v tools; the handles are longer than you'd expect, and the brushless motor is supposed to squeeze more force -- but all three 12v Fuels I own simply feel like 18v lithiums. This wrench is quite small, extremely comfortable and well balanced. It immediately unfroze a lug, with a 1/2" adapter, and took out a bolt from a percussion rifle that was frozen for literally 20 years. 1/4" square socket to 1/4" hex quick change adapters are hard to find, and generally adapters aren't recommended for impact tools, but I found one on a well known auction site and haven't had any problems converting this into a driver. With the tool and battery warranties, you can't go wrong with this. The Milwaukee 12v platform is my new gold standard. June 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by love the 2-speed I really love the two speed switch this thing has, for smaller diameter fasteners its really feels secure that it won't strip anything out. The Fuel brushless system is fantastic. I am replacing all my tools from another brand with Milwaukee tools. Love, Love Love! July 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stronger then I expected. I wanted this impact wrench mainly for small bolts. It works great for this, as it is compact, and has 2 settings to give you more control. But I was working on overhauling a snow blower, and ended up using it with larger impact sockets using an adapter. It handled rusted 3/8" and 5/15" bolts with no problem. It gets into places my 1/2" M18 impact wrench will not fit. While it is not going to replace the M18 for big jobs, it handles medium jobs with ease. From reading the specifications, the 3/8" version looks to be the same tool, but with for 3/8" sockets instead of 1/4" sockets. So the choice between them is a matter of what size sockets you normally use. Because I am normally using it with 7/16" or smaller sockets, it is the right choice for me. If I need something larger, I do have adapters. Don't expect to remove lug nuts on your car with the tool. But for small to medium jobs, especially where you need a compact tool, I think you will find that it does the job! July 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong & Compact This impact is great, and packs a big punch for the compact size. I've used it for a couple projects on the car and the compact size has really been a huge help, allowing me to get into spaces i previously could only access with a wrench August 12, 2013
