Milwaukee 3/8-in. Socket Sets
It may be tough to believe, but Milwaukee has improved the typical 3/8-in. socket set.
Featuring a swivel-head ratchet and sockets with squared ends, Milwaukee has brought new features to a tool category that’s changed little in decades. In addition to the eight deep-well sockets, each zipper-cased kit includes an adapter for hex-shank driver bits and 1/4-in. sockets.
