Thorium Tools - SAE Deep Impact Set

Thorium Tools impact socket sets are forged of a high grade 4140 Chrome Molybdenum (Cr-Mo) steel alloy. They are then heat tempered to an ideal hardness for safe use with impact wrenches. The level to which the sockets are hardened ensures that they retain the properties of flexibility and toughness to be able to safely withstand percussive impact loads for a long, long time.

Tight tolerances, quality sockets

During manufacturing our sockets are precision forged to ensure that their tolerances are kept as tight to the ASME standard as possible. That means you can trust that the socket will have a tight grip on the fastener without stripping it.

32 MM Deep Cr-Mo Socket - Laser Etched

In addition to tight tolerances in manufacturing, we also use an industry standard radiused corner design. The radiused corners of the socket wrench move the torque load away from the sharp corners of the fastner where the fastener is weakest and most likely to strip.

32 mm deep impact socket - Stamped Sizing

Each one of our impact sockets is double marked. They are both durably laser etched to be highly visible in a dim shop or under a piece of equipment, and they are also stamped for the long life of the socket.

Stay organized

At Thorium we know that you have little use for yet another blow mold case that takes up space in your shop. When you receive your set of Thorium Tools impact sockets you will also be delighted to find that the set includes a durable, well laid out, Cross-linked Polyethylene (XPE) foam organizer tray. This tray is CNC milled with a premium carbon fiber design printed onto a tough plastic top plate.

The foam tray is designed to fit into your tool box*, with highly visible size markings and a closed cell foam that wipes clean and stands up to most shop oils and chemicals. Easily tell when someone has “borrowed” a socket from your set, and inventory your set at the end of the job with a quick glance at the organizer.

*The deep socket sets will fit in a deep drawer of a toolbox, and the standard sets will fit in a shallow drawer.

Our impact socket sets are complete… We designed our sets with only a single skipped socket size across our sets. The only socket missing from our sets is the 31mm in both standard and deep variants. Never be stuck looking for skipped sockets from your set!

Caring for your sockets

If you find that your impact sockets are looking a little dull or have a dry film on them, you can restore them with a light application of gun barrel treatment, similar to that shown here. The Cr-Mo steel in the sockets is the same as that used in most rifle barrels.

This will remove any dull film from the sockets and protect them against corrosion.
