- I bought this set to replace some high end tools that were stolen from me. I was hesitant at first because cheap usually means cheap, and if you have ever used Harbor Freight sockets, you know they eventually break and no replacement. I got tired of that scenario so decided I could buy these, and if they seem cheap, I’d just send them back to Amazon and buy another top end set.I have a feeling I will not be sending these back, or be dealing with warranty issues. These are made really well and remind me of my top end tools that were stolen from me. If you’re on the fence, I say go for it. They are far better than I expected and for this price they cannot be beat. I’ll update my review if I have any problems but I honestly doubt it.I would also add that while many sockets were out of place during shipment. Once I put them back I could swing the case up and down, left to right, and they remain in their place. I’ve only had one socket come out of its holder since. I was expecting much worse after reading some reviews so Christmas came early for me.
- I purchased this set because it was complete. I have 2 of the harbor Freight 3/8″ drive impact swivel socket sets and they have served me well Okay. I was shopping for the missing sizes on Amazon and came to the realization that if I purchased 15mm, 18mm and 19mm 3/8″ drive impact swivels individually in almost any brand worth owning that I would be exceeding or coming very close the cost of the Sunex 10 piece set. So it was a no brainer for me.Don’t get me wrong the Harbor Freight impact swivels are Okay and work great when the swivel pin retaining spring stays in place which is most of the time. But it’s also missing common sizes, But. All of that is forgiven because the price is only 25 dollars and they do get the job done. Most of the time.So my first thoughts on the Sunex swivel sockets where wow these things are nice especially for only 57 dollars. Then i started noticing some chinks in armor. For starters and as you will see or may have seen in the video. The square drive hole is almost perfectly square with no beveling to make installing the socket on your tool easier. While most may think this is not a big deal and it really isn’t A big deal or A deal breaker for me, but it does make putting these sockets on to your tool a bit more challenging and frustrating at times. Then i noticed that the size stamping is pretty small. I just don’t understand why tool companies assume that it’s tool buyers have exceptional vision. Again not a true deal breaker, but this is a review and I am obligated to pick nits.The good: The good thing about the sockets are that they fit fastener VERY well and it’s made of chromoly instead of chrome vanadium steel. Impact sockets are more durable when chromoly is used. Chrome vanadium has a tendency to split and crack with repeated heavy use. The fact that it does have the sizes stamped into the steel and laser etched is a plus. Even though the size stamp is small, the fact that it’s there is a plus (some sockets are only laser etched). We all know that the laser etched size will wear off. So another good point for these sockets are that the swiveling action is VERY smooth and spring-loaded so it will not go limp when you need it to be stiff the most. ha… Ohh and it comes in a nice case.The Bad: Small size stamps, square drive hole has no provisions to make installing them on your tools easier (you will need to look at them and line it up very often), the swivel pin retaining ring make the swivel socket base a bit on the larger side. Are these things deal breakers for you? You decide. For me they are not deal breakers. These are still great impact swivel sockets that gets the job done.The Verdict: Ideally you would want to have A nice set of pin-less impact swivel sockets, But right now I personally just cant Justify the cost. Spending 225-300+ for A set of pin-less swivel sockets that only offer advantages in rare situations doesn’t work for me right now. This set is not perfect, but the flaws are in places that I can live with, the company cut costs in a way that won’t affect the operation of the tool and I am perfectly fine with that. The Sunex 3657 3/8″ drive 10 piece impact swivel socket set is an amazing value at any level of use be it the weekend warrior or the professional automotive technician.A great socket rail to use with this set would be the GearWrench socket rail sold here GearWrench 83107 3/8-Inch Dr Slide Skt Rail, Blue thats what im using in the video
- This is my third set of sunex impacts, first being 3/4 inch and second 1/2. I originally bought the 3/4 off the tool truck but I Googled it and obviously it’s like 40% cheaper on here. Anyway, I use these sockets in our shop doing anything from regular truck maintenance to putting new or extending double frames on straight trucks. And they take a serious beating with me, mainly breaking rusted frame bolts and such off of old trucks. I use the 3/4 set with a snap one one inch anvil gun (with adapter from 3/4 to 1) with a big air hose to tighten Camelback springs to their saddles and I have yet to break one, which is crazy considering how much torque one of those can throw. The 3/8 are holding up just as well. For the price and warranty, there’s no way you can’t beat them. Only gripes I have is that the red cases that the red cases they come in are kind of cheap, the latches on them never last more than a couple months for me.
- Socket set seems to be well made. A nice coating of light grade oil was on all sockets which was nice to see.I have a couple issues right out of the box. First being that when the socket set arrived every single socket was out of it’s place. Not a big deal, but the case was still fully latched and ended up warping the center of the case upwards.It would be nice if they would use a better carrying case for these sockets. I organized the sockets and immediately shook the case, tipped it upside down and side to side. Sockets were already starting to move out of place in the case.I ended up cutting up the cardboard the tools came in and made a spacer to go in between the sockets and the lid when it is closed. Still is not perfect, but almost all sockets stay in their spot now.I think I will use a nice thick piece or rubber and cut it out to the size of the case, that should prevent the sockets from coming out and will also double as a pad to kneel on.The case itself all around feels very cheap. I will be suprised if the case can withstand over a year of constant use on the latches.Overall: tools seem wellade, carrying case is cheap. Not good for the technicians who will constantly be taking it in and out of their truck.
