Yep sure looks like a SK.
Wright has a skinny beam.

I know your pain SK . About 25 years ago I was abseiling out of a tree at a rapid rate and I forgot to tie a stop knot at the end of my rope .
I fell backwards 35 feet and landed on a jagged Cedar stump , landed right in the middle of my back.
Luckily the stump was rotten or it would have impaled me.
It knocked the wind out of me in a big way but I just kept walking in circles till I got my breath back.
It was a savage case of whiplash for sure.

I`ve had upper back issues for years and one x-ray 15 years later showed that I`d cracked some vertebra.

Should have see a Doc right away instead of walking it off. Bslap

The only time I remember having ever seen a 15/32 socket was an Asian set from the 70's
Hmm, I guess it's just imports then.
Maybe they're trying to do SAE equivalents to metric ?


Anyhow I think it's safe to say INDESTRO didn't make it.

many of 32nd sizes are very close to mm sizes. Rounded to two decimal places the 15/32 = .47" and 12mm = .47" ,  19/32 = .59" and 15mm = .59", 21/32 = .66"and 17mm = .67",

29/32 = .91" and 23mm = .91", 31/32=.97" and 25mm = .98" --

...... if you could find a vintage manufacturer of 1/2'" drive SAE sets that had included all the 32nds sizes, you can pretty much cover most all metric equivalents in the most common sizes. That said, I'm not sure if such complete sets were ever produced in the US

I had that exact saw in craftsman clothing. It had a bastard chain size and I couldn't get a replacement so it may have went down to china. I haven't seen it in a while.

Yup, time for an MRI. I've had some nerve damage and between the MRI and the nuero guy they fixed me up. No surgery just some specialized stretches.

I'm positive I do not have the missing #1/4 socket , but I'm getting pretty PO'd because I've been cleaning my garage up a bit and keep coming across more INDESTRO sockets to discover they're ones I've already got.

So far I've found another 2" extension, and sockets 1/2, 7/16, 3/8, 11/32, 5/16, and I just found a 9/32 which I really thought was a 1/4 on first glance.
I don't know if this has happened to any of you before, but it's definitely annoying.


Now as far as the 15/32, I think I've determined that they didn't make it in 6pt

That set is a 15pc set with 12 sockets, 3 being 8pt.
If I've got 8 different 6pt sockets, add the 1/4 and that makes all 9 6pt sockets that at least based on this set could come with this ratchet and none of those are 15/32.

I'm with you guys that it's not a Whitworth set. Typical CL ad, maybe even better than average.
