Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith HEAVY DUTY DEEP SOCKET SET
This Husky 11-piece 1/2" drive deep socket set is forged from polished chromium-vanadium alloy steel and is very heavy duty. It weighs over 4lbs. Included in the set is a handy storage rail to keep your sockets organized in your toolbox or on your bench top. Though it comes in standard and metric, this set is SAE sizes: 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, 11/16, 3/4, 13/16, 7/8, 15/16, 1 in. and they are stamped with large, easy to read numbers.

I have the regular depth 1/2 drive sockets and now adding the deep sets to my toolbox. I like these really well. The socket size is engraved on each socket in large print, which is nice for me because I don't have to reach for my glasses each time. The finish is bright and also tough and I believe it will hold up for many years. Husky makes some good tools but I don't think their reputation has caught up with high quality of their products.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby 11 Piece 1/2 in. Drive Deep SAE Socket Set
This Husky set is pretty decent however it is probably best for around the house and lite commercial work.
The socket construction is fair. The 1/2" driver end is constructed with heavy material to handle high torque work however, the socket end is 12 point but the socket will only take a nut/bolt about 1/3 of the socket depth - meaning that the 12 point socket wall does not go as deep as the socket drive. The socket would ride higher on tall nuts/bolts such as on manifold clamps. A stud or thread-all rod can go into the depth of the socket well, just won't swallow high profile nuts or bolts. There are not of applications where this is a problem. I can only think that Husky did this to ensure high strength socket wall since 12 point wall can take away socket wall material. However, competitors have been making 12 point sockets this way for years.
The socket sizing information is clear and well stamped on the socket sidewall.
The rail the sockets come mounted on the in the package is more to keep them from rolling around in the package. I don't find it rugged enough to keep the sockets on in my toolbox.
Over all it's a good set to have for around the house. I use to help take lug nuts off our vehicles (using my 1/2" breaker bar).

More and more Husky tools are becoming a major part of my tool box as they replace another major brand that I used for decades. These sockets remind me of the heavy tools of days gone by before thin walled tools became the norm. It appears they will stand up to most any general mechanic work without easily rusting. Have a good grip and cleans up easily. These are heavy sockets for major work.

I needed sockets to take a kennel apart, these sockets were just what I needed for the project with long screws.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 When a short socket won't do the job
From 3/8 to 1 inch, that about covers about all the sizes needed.
Fence hardware is some of the worse for having a long bolt that can't be handled with a short socket. I have had other things that come with the same problem. My ratcheting end wrenches don't go to the 1 inch size. Sorry out of luck! Get out the adjustable wrench and slowly wrench the nut into it's proper place (snug).
They are 12 point sockets.
They are well made and will last me a long time.
These also come with a socket rail that they go on easily, but don't fall off easily. It's great for taking the whole set to the project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a4andrew well built - very durable.
This is a nice set of deep sockets. Obviously very good for those bolts that are way too long, where the nuts are far down. Even if you didn't have such a scenario, this set could just as well replace your standard socket set. The etched numbers for the size of the socket piece is clearly labeled and the font gets bigger, the bigger the socket - pretty good for old man eyes. Very good quality.

I've grown to depend on these tools. You can tell the difference in these and some of the others. These are all that I buy now. This set has eleven of the commonly used sizes and have a good, snug fit. They are twelve point, which is always a plus, includes a socket rail to keep them organized and are guaranteed forever. They have a very nice, high quality finish to them and are very solidly built. These are a must for your toolbox.
