Craftsman 44 Pc 1/4" Drive Socket Set SAE and Metric

This is a nice set of Craftsman 1/4" square drive sockets that cover both SAE (standard American) and Metric sizes in both standard and deep socket length.

1/4" square drive is the smallest socket set commonly available with smaller sizes to work on electrical components, electronics, appliances, and light duty auto mechanics like interiors and dash boards. 

This set includes just the socket wrenches in various sizes and types but must be combined with the handle - either ratchet, breaker bar, T handle, or screw driver type handle in order to drive the sockets, which just have a 1/4" square hole to mount them on the driver. 

The business ends of the sockets run various sizes from 5/32" - 9/16" in standard SAE sizes and 4mm - 14mm in Metric sizes.  All these sockets fit fasteners in the smaller ranges of mechanical fasteners.  If you are regularly turning bolts and nuts bigger than ~ 1/2", you will need a larger 3/8" drive set.

The two forms of socket included are standard depth and deep sockets in both Metric and SAE sizes. The standard depth are used to turn short fasteners while the deep sockets can get on nuts that are on studs that protrude up higher than the standard can get onto. 

The deep sockets work on manufactured items with long screws that are used to put lots of components onto their mounting places. Since the screws do not have to fit into a short space they often mount parts with long studs protruding up above the nuts and in that case you will need the deep socket to get down far enough to grasp the nut.

The Set includes -

o eleven 6 pt. standard SAE sockets 5/32, 3/16, 7/32, 1/4, 9/32, 5/16, 11/32, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, and 9/16 inch;
o twelve
6 pt. Metric 4, 5, 5.5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14mm; 
o ten 6 point deep standard 3/16, 7/32, 1/4, 9/32, 5/16, 11/32, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, and 9/16 inch;
o eleven 6 pt. metric deep 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14mm.

The sockets are made of chrome vanadium steel forged, machined, polished and heat treated and chrome plated with High visibility markings that make the sizes Easy-To-Read in any available light. The markings are much larger than old makrings and are on a contrasting background to grab your attention and make it easy to pick out the size you are looking for.

Like all Craftsman tools, they are guaranteed for life by Sears. Merely return a damaged tool to the local Sears store and they will give you a free replacement with no hassles.
