Lidl socket set.

Post by DaveEFI » Fri Jan 04, 2019 11:22 am

Noticed an unusual socket set in my local Lidl yesterday. It has a hole down the middle to allow it to fit over long studs, etc, so one of those things you may never need - but handy if you do. Sockets provided are 8, and 10-19mm. 17 quid. Also has an adaptor to allow the ratchet handle to be used with 1/2 square drive sockets.

You can get socket/ratchet sets with a full hole down the middle, often used for strut tops etc.

Not overly great as a day to day ratchet, but for specific jobs they are good.

Yup - that's what this is. May be more useful than a ratchet ring spanner where space is tight. But only for dedicated tool junkies. :D
