What's the size of that shower head socket?
I have a rain fall shower head. The water inlet is actually a brass ball joint which allows the head to be adjusted to fit different angles, etc. The first inlet (where the ball joint attaches to the house plumbing) is 1/2 NPT, but what size is the connector on the SHOWER HEAD side? (basically: the OUTLET of the ball joint?)
Reason: I want to replace this ball joint with a 90 degree angle adapter which will allow me greater head-room in my shower, which is already cramped, and a top-side inlet isn't doing me any favors.

You don't use a socket. You use a wrench.
MOST people use a pipe wrench that adjusts to the size of the pipe an doesn't require knowing the actual size, which is RARELY a standard wrench size.

ask maker via its support pages. maybe they have the replacement part you need, too

pipes are measured from the inside dimension
a 1/2’ galvanized pipe will be about 3/4” on the outside
that fitting may be specific to that manufacturer but I would try 3/4”
the threads per inch may also vary
