Reader Andy sent in this gem from the “I have these, so why haven’t I posted about them yet” category. Sure, you’ve gotta be careful with these: a small drive to large drive can break the tool, and a large drive to small drive can break the fastener. It’s always best to use the correct size, but sometimes you just find yourself with only one socket that fits — and you’d better be able to use it.
This set from Craftsman goes for $20 and includes:
- a 1/4″ to 3/8″ (be careful with the ratchet!)
- a 3/8″ to 1/4″ (be careful with the fastener!)
- a 3/8″ to 1/2″
- and a 1/2″ to 3/8″
