2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 9 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AK219 TRX-Star/Spline/Hex Bit Set 42pc 3/8" & 1/2"Sq Drive (Misc.)
Bought the Ak219 set to go with the Sealey ST1012 torque wrench which is excellent. These however are not. The kit comprises a 3/8" and 1/2" socket with a large hex adapter on one side into which fit the individual bits (long and short for each of the sizes). Problem is the tolerance of the socket (held in place oddly by an expanding ring round the socket)and the hex bits both at the tips and in the adapter making the whole set very "sloppy" not what you want when dealing with titanium and alloy bolts costing nearly 5 each...

I learnt my lesson very quickly and bought the Park SB1 set which comprises fixed hex and Torx bits each in their own socket as well as a number of regularly used socket sizes including the 1" for using on most cassette and many bottom bracket tools. more expensive but far far better quality and value unless you actually need some giant Torx bolts adjusting on a truck.
