The guy that has been with me now for 2 years uses metric sockets on about every thing he works on ( even uses the metric on standard chit but theirs not much standard chit anymore)... He now has Mac and snap-on semi-deep sets all chrome he rarely uses a impact socket... He uses a 1/2 to 3/8 adapter on a 1/2 air-cat gun... He's the worst abuser of tools I have ever ran across but those Mac and snapper sockets hold up and I am shocked I would never abuse my tools like he does warranty are no warranty...

My Thoughts.... On the standard chit buy cheap most cheap chit now is acceptable... On the metric buy the good chit its hear to stay... I have found Sunex and GP to hold their own again the overpriced Tool truck brands in the socket line... In the wrench line (boxed and open end) the tool truck brands can not be beat BAR NONE no matter how proud you are of them....

Gearwrench has expanded to offer sockets and wrenches that would serve the DIY'er well...

I am a 1/4" drive guy others tell me they never seen a man use 1/4" in so many places... If they offer it in 1/4" I have it my 1/4" chit hangs in front of all the rest.... The best thang that has ever come about is those locking gismos that lock a socket to a extension... I work in a environment were if you drop it you may never find it those lockers have saved me a bunch...

When I made a living repairing aircraft I learned about 1/4" drive tools. I now use them for everything within their torque range and only move up to the bigger drives if I can't get enough torque or I don't have a large enough socket.

I love how handy the little guys are!
