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. Could you really have just one sockets set? (more…)
As Milwaukee Tool continues to expand upon their Hand Tool arsenal Chrome Socket Sets does seem like the next logical step. While these sockets sets are traditionally considered “mechanics tools” every electrician, plumber, HVAC, service tech and the list goes on, has a socket set in their bag or truck. Milwaukee’s new Contractor ratchet and socket sets, both SAE 48-22-9000 & Metric 48-22-9001 are designed for this market. The sets use a 3/8” ratchet with a pivoting head ideal for tight spaces and eight common deep sockets with some additional extensions/adapters. Priced at $69 each and should be here in April! (more…)
A master tool set is a big investment and in most cases you are going to be buying your own tools, which you need to out last you. That being the case wouldn’t you want tools made in the USA that you can take pride in and you don’t have to over pay? Take a good look at the Wright Tool sets made in Barberton, Ohio. They have been in business for 79 years making high quality hand tools. The large 561 piece master set (image above is 374 piece set) which includes metric sizes and large 42” cabinet is just over 9K. This is defiantly a large investment and worth considering your options but it may be considerably cheaper in the long run than making weekly payments to the guys in the trucks. There is a wide range of Wright Tool Sets on OhioPowerTool.com.
