Hand tools, In need of a specialty socket.?
Hand tools, In need of a specialty socket.
I saw this advertised many years ago, and kick myself for not ordering this.
At first glance it looks like a large socket like a spark plug socket that would fit a 3/8 ratchet.
When you look down inside the socket you saw many tiny metal pins that appear to have springs behind them.
These pins would wrap and form around the odd shaped piece you wanted to turn.
The example I saw was using this socket to turn different size eye screws into or out of wood.
I would really like one of these sockets.

Home Depot has a 3/8" Universal socket called a Gator Grip for about $10.

Its called a 'universal socket'. They are sold all over the internet and ebay. Here is a link. They come in all sorts of colors so they stand out in your tools box. Be sure to buy two or three. If you are working with a horrible stuck bolt you will probably ruin the first one as you try to get it unstuck.
