Wow !
even includes the 11mm so you can windy-gun the bleed nipples on brakes  :D ;D

only 1/2 inch drive though , so not strong enough for tyre fitters to windy gun wheel nuts up to the required 1.000.000 N/m  :(

I just buy single sockets now to replace the ones i've abused to failure  ;D

Its a Metric problem -

M10 Bolts or Nut is 17mm
M12 Bolts or Nut is 19mm

M11 Threaded Bolts or Nuts do exist, which in theory is 18mm, but your really struggle to find them.

But Koreans will often have 12mm headed M8 & 16mm headed M10


Japanese too.

I wouldn't dare windy gun brake bleed nipples, they are hollow and easily broken off. I always use a T-bar to give an even torque and still use minimum force. If that fails I desist, give the caliper thereabouts a good hammering, and try again.

  just joking about using the windy gun on the nipples :o  Terry  ;D
though a deep six sided socket gets good grip
hopefully you don't windy gun wheels to 1.000,000 N/m either  :o

Sealey
Or buy Clarke. Or any number of other brands.  Sadly Sealey is another that buys from the same Chinese factories as everyone else, and rebrands, and lives on its past.

I'm not a big fan of modern Sealey stuff, and is often much cheaper with a different badge on it.

Live just round the corner from them. Just a damn great warehouse.

Sealey's past was always buying import stuff with their own name on it. The difference is that they were one of the first to do that. What you're paying for now is that they have a huge range and dealer network, supplied from the UK with good support which includes decent instructions. That probably doesn't matter too much for basic handtools, but once you step up to specialist kit, welders, electronic gear etc is worth having.

The difference being that they now buy in the same shite as everyone else, rather than better quality previously.

The support network can be useful, but irrelevant for most of us here.

 The far east is very superstisious and will not use 13 hence no 13mm head nuts or bolts
My earliest recollection of 18mm being used on cars was on Renault.

I've collected my tools over many many years. I'm currently buying Snap On replacements for the tools I use a lot. As it happens the last set I bought was deep impact sockets 15-32mm, there is certainly an 18mm in there.

Please note, I am buying Snap On as it means present buying for me is easy and I get what I want. I'm also working on the basis that if my son doesn't want to swing the spanners, he'll have a lot monies worth of tools to sell as they don't seem to get cheaper.
