Hand Tools Knowledge and Resource

What Is A Socket Wrench?

You have likely seen hand tool sockets at your local market. A socket is a shiny, cylindrical form that features some grooves and a brand mark.


In fact, there are several types of socket, and these are classified by their form of driving power:

Chrome Socket, by hand with ratchet handle or other drive hand tools 

Impact Socket (Power Socket), by impact wrench with source from electronic battery or air compressor.  To find out more about impact wrenches, please refer to this article on air and power impact wrenches: "Which Brand Provides the Most Powerful Impact Wrench?"

 


At one end of a socket is an opening shaped and sized to fit over the common male hexagonal head of a fastener. At the opposite end is a standardized square recess, into which the socket wrench's drive is inserted. Drives come in various sizes and sockets are sized accordingly. Male sockets are also produced, and these are commonly referred to as Bit Sockets

What is the difference between impact socket and chrome socket? Why is CR-V material not suitable at producing impact sockets?

Tien-i's hand sockets are made of Cr-V steel (CR-V).

Compared with the raw material "CR-V" for hand sockets, the raw material for pneumatic sockets, CR-MO, has stronger toughness, i.e. stronger shock resistance. Suitable for use with air and electric guns. CR-V steel (CR-V) has higher hardness, but in the need for shock-resistant use environment will lead to reduced service life.
