Draper 16359 Metric Socket Set

Although priced at just £22.95 there are many cheaper sets than this available but I thought it best to pay a bit more for this mid range metric socket set.

In the box are 14 six point sockets in sizes: 8, 9,10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, and 22mm. The heart of the set is the sizeable and well made ratchet handle which has a quick access reversing switch, a socket eject button and features a 72-tooth ratchet mechanism which gives for a smoother operation than the 48-tooth type found on low-end rivals. Also included are short and long extenders and a right angled adapter. The storage case is made from medium weight plastic with marked shaped inserts for the various components and a locking clip lid.

Build quality for the ratchet, sockets and accessories is first rate with everything made from heavy duty Chrome Vanadium Steel with the socket sizes clearly marked. The case although robust enough for general use could be stronger and a more secure locking mechanism for the lid would be better.

As you might expect it all works well and I had no problems or issues when using it with the buttery smooth ratchet mechanism being a joy to use.

This is an excellent quality metric socket set and well worth the modest asking price.
