Six Point Sockets - Hexagon Sockets
Socket wrenches are most commonly hexagonal, or more commonly referred to as "6-point" in lay terms. Sockets are driven by being attached to the driving tool via a male/female square connection fitting (called the square drive). Standard sizes of square drives around the world include 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/2", 2-1/2" and 3-1/2" square drive sizes along with some lesser used drivers such as 5/8" square drive, This wide range of square drive sizes provides for a wide variety of socket types and sizes to suit small to very large nuts and bolts. Some square drivers have a through hole to attach the socket to the driver (using a retaining ring with o-ring and pin type, a locking pin, or friction ball. Some common hand ratchets employ a quick release button on their top for quick socket release of smaller sockets.The tool chosen to drive the socket wrench ultimately supplies the mechanical advantage needed by the user to provide the torque needed to loosen or tighten the fastener as may be required. Larger drivers are typically used with higher torque, while smaller drivers are used for convenience in smaller low torque applications. Very large sockets and drivers are typically powered by hydraulics to achieve torque.
Bi Hexagon Socket - 12 Point Impact
A 'bi-hex' or 'bi-hexagon' socket is also called a 12 point socket. This is because twelve points are formed where the internal walls of the recesses intersect.
The name 'bi-hex' comes from the internal shape of the socket recess being that of two hexagons laid over one another.
Just like 'hex sockets', 'bi-hex' sockets can also be used to tighten or loosen hexagonal shaped fasteners, but they have a couple of advantages:
They are able to fit 6 point fastener heads in twice as many positions as a regular 'hex socket'. This means it is easier to locate the socket onto the fastener in tight spaces.
Female Square Socket - these are used in many industries and for many uses - machine bolts, railways, trawlers, head lag bolts and many more, available in all sizes and drives - large stocks - manufactured by Deltec Impact Socket Manufacturers
Bi Square Sockets - 8 point Impact Socket - Deltec UK
Deltec manufacture and stock Bi Square female sockets, these are used on the railway, all drives and sizes stocked
Octagon Sockets - 8 Sides - Deltec UK
Deltec manufacture and stock the 8 sided Hub nut sockets, mainly used on vehicles - Hub Nut sockets - All sizes and drives in stock
Thinwall sockets, Any size and drive of socket
Deltec can modify any socket within the same day to a Thinwall socket, these are used in tight spaces where access is limited
Surface Drive Sockets / Fast Lead
Deltec manufacture and stock a large range of Surface Drive - Fast lead sockets, these sockets make it easier to latch on to a nut, normally production lines for example
BSW Whitworth Sockets are an old size, but still stocked
British Standard Whitworth (BSW) is one of a number of imperial-unit-based screw thread standards which use the same hexagonal bolt head and nut sizes, the others being British Standard Fine thread (BSF) and British Standard Cycle. These three are collectively called Whitworth threads.
