Northern Industrial Impact Sockets - 1/2in. Drive, Deep Well, 14-Pc. Metric Set
Almost perfect and a great price!
I shopped around for a metric set of deep well air tool sockets and I kept coming back to this set from Northern Tool. It had the sizes I need most and a handy plastic case that helps keep them organized while working fast and furiously under the hood. The size range was the best of any set I could find and that was important because having an 8mm in the set was a bonus. They are well made and work extremely well. My only negative is that although they are marked with large numbers for easier reading by us older folk, I am not too optimistic that because of their location and lack of deep etching that they will be visible after some heavy use. But, the case is marked as well and if you stay organized, then finding the size socket you need when you need it should not be too much of an issue. I would recommend them to anyone using air tools. Please do not use standard chrome vanadium sockets with your impact tools. Its not safe and at these prices, there is no excuse not to buy these!!!

Don't waste your money on the expensive box truck brands. I have abused these to death and they hold up well. It comes with a nice case and all the sizes I need. I bought both SAE and Metric deep and shallow. For the price, they can't be beat.

Why spend tons of money on name brand sockets when northern tool makes a very high quality set themselves

Deep Well Impact Sockets 1/2 in
This is a good product, easy to use, I use it to change a flat - I have the metric set fits good & snug no problem loosening lugs, it has an opening on both sides to make changing sizes easy - this set is very handy, so much easier & faster than a 4 way lug wrench.

For the price you can't get a better set of sockets. Very pleased with them.

These appear to be of good quality. They are fairly easy to read. It comes with all the small sizes plus a 21, 22, 24 and 27mm. My SAE set has a very smooth finish and won't stick to a magnetic strip to hang on peg board. The finish is not smooth like my SAE set, which I like becasue they stick very good to a magnetic strip and I have them hanging off of my peg board. I would buy these again.

Great set of sockets, I would have liked a stronger case for them but you can not beat them for the price. I will purchase more of these in the future!

I am a industrial forklift mechanic road technician to let you know my background. Anyway I get the privlage of going to school for training once a month for a week and at the training facility they have this exact set so that is what prompted me to buy them, with many people using these in training i figured that they had to be tuff. Well I purchaced them from northern and had them delivered to my home and they arrived in just three days from the day i placed the order. Now on to the tools, AMAZING!!! As you can imagine forklifts are put through a lot of abuse and these sockets can handle the abuse!! I have used them on many different applications and they will definatly stand abuse, major abuse. I have a 1/2" drive impact gun that has a torque of 1100 ft. pounds and sometimes I have to really hammer on some of these stuborn nuts and bolts and they have not failed me yet! In closing I think these impact sockets are just as good as high priced name brand at a fraction of the cost! Great job northern tools!
