No matter how many Spanners you own, you always find yourself in need of a decent Socket Set Box. Since they are operated on Ratchet and T-handle, they make the job lot more easier. Using a Box Type Spanner over Ring Spanner has more advantages. While fastening the Bolt/Nut, the Head never slips out. This preserves the Bolt Head. You can apply more Torque compared to Basic Spanners. Generally Speaking, If you own a Socket Box, You have fulfilled 90% of your Garage Tool Requirements.
Socket Sets arrive in different Sizes. The Smallest and Cheapest ones are 1/4″. Next size would be 3/8″, and the recommended size for DIY use is 1/2″. There are some recommendations I would like to make before starting this list.
1/4″ Socket Size is entry level. If your job involves basic works, other than working on Automobiles, you can go with this. If you already own a vehicle, and planning to buy Socket Set for Automobile use, please forget 1/4″ and 3/8″ and consider buying only 1/2 inch Size itself. Smaller ones cannot withstand the Torque you apply to Wheel Nut/ Lug Nut. Also, if you are working on an Engine, you need 1/2″ itself. Below is the List of our Picks for the Best Socket Sets in India. For detailed guide, read, Socket Set Buying Guide
