If you’re looking for some extra length in your hex-head sockets, Craftsman makes their mid-length hex-head sockets about six inches long so they can go where regular hex heads won’t reach, or where a socket extension is just too wide.
The sockets are made of high-strength steel, and the hex heads will work at a 20-degree angle without slipping. You can get the sockets in a six-piece metric and a six-piece standard set, or you can get the standard and metric in one set.
The standard or metric sets will run you about $50 and the combined set is $70. In my opinion the price is a bit high, but most Craftsman tools go on sale once or twice a year — that’s when I’ll be grabbing them.
