Home Depot has this metric 25 piece set of sockets on clearance. It's only a slightly slick deal. I see the same set for $4 more elsewhere online. The positive is that it's from a brick and mortar store in case of issues/returns. In-store pickup and shipping are free.

This set is chromium molybdenum, which is the more expensive and better metal used in impact sockets. Chrome vanadium is used in lower quality impact sockets because it's cheaper.

Here is a SAE to Metric conversion for those too slick to buy sockets in both measurements. I have the chart printed and taped to my toolbox.
5/16" - 8 mm
3/8" - 10 mm
7/16" - 11 mm
1/2" - 13 mm
9/16" - 14 mm
5/8" - 16 mm
3/4" - 19 mm
13/16" - 21 mm
7/8" - 22 mm
15/16" - 24 mm
1" - 25 mm
1-1/8" - 29 mm
1-1/4" - 32 mm
1-5/16" - 34 mm
1-3/8" - 35 mm
1-1/2" - 38 mm

Thumbs up for the deal on some nice tools, but that conversion chart contains some really sloppy fit substitutions. This is what I use:

You are correct, it's certainly less than perfect. Thanks for sharing the better conversion! Smilie
