Many of us have multiple socket sets, perhaps even full drawers of them, SAE or Metric, 6 point or 12 point, standard of deep, chrome or impacts, all with various drive sizes ¼”, 3/8”, ½”, etc. Over the years we’ve seen lots of All-in-One solutions for sockets but we would not consider many of them for professionals. The Grey Pneumatic Duo Sockets would be one exception there, impact rated sockets with thin wall design that allow them to perform exceptionally well as a hand ratchet set.

Husky’s new 10-piece wrench sets are real beauties in their dark-gray finish. But even better than how they look is their “Surface Grip” open-end design. They’re designed to give an 80% better grip as well as reducing the risk of “rounding” our fasteners. We noticed quickly that they gave us a fast, sturdy grip on everything we tested. And that’s real beauty in our eyes…

Proudly made in the USA! That’s the theme of Southwire’s recently launched electrician hand tools. Many electricians proudly invest in American made products, so what does Southwire do? They blast the market with American made steel and “MADE IN USA” stamped on every hand tool. Not to mention that the new USA line-up incorporates red, white and blue on every tool! The company plans to grow their American made hand tools, so stay tuned!
Got to give credit to the team at Milwaukee only a few short years ago they didn’t make 1 hand tools now they are quickly becoming the leaders in many hand tool categories. Combination wrench sets are a little trickier to improve upon as they have done in many other categories but it looks like they have added some nice features. Max Bite on the open end provides up to 25% torque improvement, rounded I-beam design is more comfortable to use, included trays are nice for tool chest storage and ink filled sizing makes identification fast. All around a nice package at a fair price with a life time warranty.
