Using 12 Point Sockets To Hold Square Tools
Using 12 point sockets to
turn squares on kit tools :
Our tooling is supplied with square drives.
Normally you would use a Tap Wrench recommended on a square
or square drive sockets. If you do not have square drive sockets you
may optionally try to use 12 point sockets to drive the squares on tools.
12 point sockets generally will hold a square better than a 6 sided socket.
EXAMPLE FOR A M14x1.5 DRAIN PAN KIT 12 POINT SOCKETS.
1) Drill square = 1/2 inch 12 point socket.
2) CounterBore square = 7/16 inch 12 point socket.
3) Tap square = 7/16 inch 12 point socket .
4) Driver tool square = 3/8 inch 12 point socket.
This is only one possible solution to turning a tool with a square drive.
