Hex sockets take more torque without slipping
Choosing the right socket set requires a basic knowledge of the types of sockets, tools and accessories available. The most common type of socket is the hex socket.
The standard drive size for these sockets is 3/8-inch. However, there are a number of smaller sizes that are used for lighter loads. These are coupled with smaller ratchet heads. This makes them ideal for reaching tight places.
Another type of socket is the flex socket, also known as a universal adapter. These sockets can be used to reach hardware from any angle. These sockets feature a ball swivel for 360 degree turning action.
The most common material used to make sockets is chrome. However, the finish on chrome can flake off after a number of years of use. A reputable tool company will replace tools with a chrome free finish.
The most impressive thing about these sockets is that they are extremely durable and robust. They are designed to be used in conjunction with power impact wrenches. A power impact wrench will apply more force when removing fasteners and applying more vibration. Consequently, these sockets require thicker walls and an industrial black finish.
While the best sockets will take more torque without slipping, it is a good idea to have a variety of different sizes. You may find that your hand drill does not have the torque to drive larger diameter bits.
