A Red Cased complete socket set has been added to the workshop tools. Dclarke (talk) 16:59, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

32-Piece 1/2" Socket Set

Contents 17 x standard sockets - 10, 11 ,12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 27, 30, 32 mm 8 x deep sockets - 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19mm 2 x spark plug sockets 16mm/21mm 10" quick release ratchet handle Also includes 2 x extension bars, universal joint and T bar adaptor

In addition, we have a large quantity of 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" sockets that almost make up a complete set.

Those we have have been labelled with a clear indication of the size. Metric sockets are simply coded with the a/f size in mm. Imperial sockets also include an indication of how they relate to metric sizes - for example 1/2" = 13- (i.e. a bit less than 13mm) while 1/4" is 6+ (a bit bigger then 6mm). This should help to ensure that the sockets are stored in order, and if one is needed to fit a bolt head of unknown size, help is provided.

Although we do have adaptors between different socket sizes, please avoid driving small (1/4", 3/8") sockets from larger (3/8", 1/2") handles / ratchets as the adaptors are often a weak point, and no longer necessary.

The current list of what we have is: (To be completed)
