Milwaukee yet again has another winner! This socket set is perfect for my needs. At work I'm constantly on the go from building to building. I needed some deep impact sockets for those tough jobs for heavy use for my impact drill. I love that everything is in one case that's easy to carry. Everything is labeled and easy to read. sockets are laser printed and the number stands out so that its easy to locate what you need. The best part is that these are built to last and built to take a beating which is exactly what I need. Overall, you get the best and you know that they will last.

Milwaukee SHOCKWAVE 1/2 in. Drive SAE Deep Well Impact Socket Set (12-Piece) review: Well, here is another shining example of an excellent Milwaukee product! First, the socket set is contained in a strong case - excellent! Each socket has its size both indented and colored white on black - yeah! They are heavy and durable and built to last. I like using them on my small Milwaukee stubby impact wrench. Of course they work well on the big boy impact wrenches! Built tough, easy to see the size, and all stored in an easy and durable case. Milwaukee rocks! Love it! There ya go!

A very nice set of 1/4" metric impact sockets. They come on a nice handy rail to help keep them organized in your box. I really like how the sizes are clearly marked and how the white really stands out against the black of the socket. I've used them just a couple of times so far and haven't had any problems, they have a good hold on the impact but are still easy enough to remove/ switch out.

This SAE set of Milwaukee impact sockets is half inch drive and six point contact with a deep well. For those using a pin detent style impact wrench, these sockets have two holes to simplify attachment. One of the features of this set is the large stamped markings for socket size and the bright white ink used to fill the markings. The sockets are manufactured from forged high torque impact steel for durability and they include a non-slip hex geometry to reduce damage to the socket and rounding of the fastener. The sockets come in a blow mold style case that has a space for each socket that is labeled with the corresponding socket size. Not only does this make it easy to put sockets back in the correct locations but it also makes it easier to identify a socket to select if they have turned and the socket markings are not visible. The case is designed to nest when stacked which will help with storage. In my testing, the sockets held well on an impact wrench with friction ring connection. They also fit well on fasteners with no slipping or rounding of the fastener. Overall this is a great product that I absolutely recommend. My only thoughts or concerns which are minor and do not detract from the value of the product: 1) Once the retail wrap is removed, one has no way to differentiate between different cases of impact sockets from the outside (i.e.: metric vs. standard) as the blow mold case does not have any part numbers, words, etc. on it other than the Milwaukee logo (note: inside there is a sticker identifying each socket size and its corresponding individual part number); 2) Some of the red ink/paint drizzled or dripped onto other areas of the sockets during manufacturing. Socket sizes included in this set: 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, 11/16, 3/4, 13/16, 7/8, 15/16, 1, 1-1/16

The socket set has what you need for all the tough jobs that they're needed for. I got these to have as a precautionary measure for changing out tires during a roadside emergency. I have the 1/2 inch Milwaukee Impact Wrench and needed these to complete my goal of having a quick go to for changing out tires. The added bonus for me is that these sockets can be used for many other mechanical tasks that may arise. I enjoy that they come in a quick grab and go case. Perfect for storing in the trunk of a car or in any garage or took cabinet. These are made of quality steel and are laser etched for easy distinction. These are going to last me a lifetime and are definitely adding a little peace of mind to my travels. SIMPLE! QUICK! NO BRAINER! RECOMMENDED!

I am really enjoying my new Milwaukee Shockwave Sockets. I like the bright white sizes engraved on each one. These deepwell sockets also have two holes in them so they stay on the impact gun or ratchet without slipping off. The hard plastic waterproof case is great for storage. The set includes all the basic sizes that you will need. I often have the need for sockets that are strong forged steel and can withstand the torque of an impact gun. We use them for building decks and outdoor sheds, driving bolts into concrete.Definitely recommend these Shockwave sockets.

    What a great impact socket set. Comes in 12 piece with carrying molded case. Sockets sizes from 3/8":through 1 1/16" sizes. The individual sockets have the sizes imbedded into the socket and then have been painted white in the imbed sizes. The sockets are designed in 1/2" drive for use with impact drills and are manufactured in the 6 point deep socket, "NON-SLIP HEX GEOMETRY" style. These are a very heavy duty socket that will take a lot of abuse during it's lifetime.

    Most of my work I typically use standard "thin" wall sockets even for impact or high torque. Now that I use powered drivers more than hand ratchets I felt it time to move to the appropriate socket for powered driver/impact applications. I went with the Milwaukee 3/8" SHOCKWAVE set because of the engraved, white stenciled markings on the socket wall. Each socket size is easily identified thanks to the bold marking. I also like the included case to keep this set together in. The real bonus is the socket collection in this set; 12 pieces of the most common socket size most folks use 5/16" through 1" in 1/16" increments! The deep socket design is perfect for the longer fastener work and the 6 point socket well leaves less chance of rounding out the bolt/fastener in high torque application.

    Milwaukee 14 Piece 3/8 Inch Metric Drive Deep Well Impact Socket Set The Milwaukee 14 piece 3/8 inch drive metric socket set has everything you could want in a set. This socket set meets my requirements by having both permanent embossed size markings, and then Milwaukee included painting those markings, enhancing those markings so you can easily identify the socket you need. Being 6-point sockets you will not have to worry about rounding out the fasteners, as long as you seat the socket. The black oxide coating easily identifies these as impact capable sockets. The black oxide coating also cuts the chances of the sockets rusting before your next use. Milwaukee has made it easier to store these sockets where they are easier to locate, by including a socket rail to keep your sockets in order and easier to store together. With all of the boxes checked this set should fit your needs.

    I have to say one thing about these SAE deep well sockets The sizes are so easy to read even in dim light. They even come with a rack to keep your sockets on which helps to keep them organized. These sockets even come with a lifetime warranty. My favorite thing about these sockets is that after years working with sockets with the sizes etch on them and now I have a set where the sizes is in white and so easy to read and I have used them numerous of times and so far have not wore the sizes off. Where I build decks and wooden fences I use a impact drill to drive in lag bolts and these sockets are really holding up very good.. This is a great set to have in your tool box and I have to highly recommend the set.

    When you use these sockets, one thing comes to mind... quality. Each socket is is supremely solid and it feels like it would last a lifetime. The sockets are coated in a black finish which feels like it would be anti-scratch protective. The set of eight oversized sockets are for large jobs and they are designed to take a beating. The drive size is larger than normal, so you will need a driver to be able to handle these large sockets.

    A very nice set of impact sockets from Milwaukee. Here are the basics you need to know about this set you are getting 20 deep sockets and 20 standard sockets. Both the deep and standard sockets have the 6 points to help prevent slippage. The set is both metric and SAE. SAE you are getting standard and deep sockets in the sizes of 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, 11/16, and 3/4. The metric for both deep and standard sockets is 8 through 19mm. The set also comes with 3/8” socket adapter, 3” impact extension, and a universal joint socket. The set also comes with Milwaukee’s lifetime guarantee. The set also comes with a nice carrying case that holds the sockets enough that they won’t move around in transport but are easy to remove when ready to use. The one thing I wish Milwaukee had done with the case was make the socket tray removable. The Milwaukee storage case does have a nice latch locking system that is easy to open but still holds the case close. The nice thing about the sockets are they stamped and white inked filled so you can really see the size. Also the sockets have a red rim so you can clearly tell which side goes on your anvil. The sockets go on easy on both friction ring and detent pin tools. I enjoyed using the sockets on my M12 Stubby Wrench, my non impact racket, and my M12 Surge. The sockets held up well on all 3 tools and were very easy to use and change. I never had an issue with the sockets slipping or getting stuck on the bolts. Overall I would recommend this set of sockets. The set is high quality plus it is backed by Milwaukee’s lifetime guarantee.

    The Milwaukee Shockwave 1/4 inch-drive, deep-well, 6 point, impact duty socket set is a well-designed tool set. This set includes 14 Metric sockets ranging from 4mm up to 15mm that are finished in the typical black-phosphate and the size markings are white and very bold. They are very easy to see. The deep-well design allows use on longer fasteners while the 6 point feature grips the nut more securely than 12 point sockets. This prevents you from rounding off the nuts when using an impact driver. Even though these sockets are impact rated they work just as well with any other 1/4 inch-drive tools. They come with a nice metal/plastic storage rail that can be screwed into/onto any flat surface. This set has a lifetime guarantee against breakage. This is an excellent socket set and Milwaukee does make these sets in SAE and other drive sizes. It will make a nice addition to your tool box.

    I trust Milwaukee brand tools, and decided to pick this 3/8 Impact Driver set for trial. The set includes SAE and Metric standard and deep sockets. The sockets range from 5/16 up to ¾ for both SAE depths, and 8 to 19mm for the metric sets. Two Impact extensions, stubby and 3”, plus a ¼”hex drive adapter are included. Each piece in the set is done in what appears to be a black anodized finish, with clear laser engraved white labeling for your assistant to hand you the correct size! I am using this set around the garage with my air powered impact driver, and they also work well with the battery operated unit for working on the tractor and barn equipment. I find it versatile and sturdy. The section within the plastic molded carry case avoids runs back and forth from the tool cabinet to the work site. Milwaukee has a lifetime guarantee on this set (sockets and extensions only), so if you happen to crack a socket, a replacement is in the works for you. Country of origin is China.
