DeWalt DWMT19242 Impact Deep Socket Set – 1/2-inch Metric
Made from Cr-Mo steel, the DeWalt impact deep socket set seems to handle a beating well. In addition, the black oxide finish fights back the corrosion. This 26-piece impact socket set is also CR440 heat-treated for additional durability. The socket walls are thick at the big end, and the base, near the 1/2″ square anvil is even thicker. The 6-point milling for 6-point fasteners stop about halfway down the socket, and the remainder of the socket is almost solid steel.
This DeWalt DWMT19242 1/2″ impact deep socket set includes the same DirectTorque technology as the DeWalt Impact Socket Set DWMT74739 we reviewed. In addition, these DeWalt impact deep sockets work with hog-ring and pin-detent anvils, as well as pin o-ring style retainers.
