14 PC deep metric impact socket set,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ingersoll Rand SK4M14L 1/2-Inch 14 Piece Deep Metric Impact Socket Set (Tools & Home Improvement)I have used IR for impact guns and ratchets, and its great stuff. this socket set is no exception, I had ordered a standard-depth metric impact set from amazon in the past and it was top notch, and the fit and finish is beautiful on this as well. the blow molded case is beautiful, albeit rather large and consumes a lot of toolbox room. considering getting a 1/2" drive socket organizer.
for the DIY'er, these are a must have.
Note: the laser etching is nice, but engraving would be best. consistent use will make the etcching go away fast, as in my other set. but you could always hand-engrave the numbers on the socket somewhere.

Agree, as I have the smaller set, too. My question regards the engraving. Is there a dremel cutting tool that would do this task? Or another engraving method that you, or others, would recommend.
As you know, there are less expensive 1/2 in metrics on Amazon, (missing the 18 mm) , but these look best over the long haul.

No, I have not dremel'd any numbers on my sockets; label sets exist for this task, but they typically dont wrap all the way around the socket, and are inferior. I usually just recognize a socket just by looking at it, like most people who use them enough tend to do. You could just engrave it on there, that's pretty easy.
