square sockets

Thanks for the input and clarification. I bought a machinist's toolbox at a swapmeet many moons ago, and there were a bunch of 2-3" square tooling in different sizes, whenever I need an "outie", I stick these in the square sockets. Bill

Correct. The word stars threw me off. The eight points I have found only from WRIGHT. They can be used on both four point and six point fasteners.

I see you are a SNAP-ON participant. SNAP-ON has these also?

Just in case you haven't seen them before, they may appear different than you might expect- the ones I have aren't square but 8-sided stars. I'm only mentioning this in case you're not familiar with them, not trying to be an SA. Bill

What Oldmo wants is a male plug socket used to take the plugs out of the side and front of the block.

Internal pipe plug socket


External pipe plug socket


Although an extension will work on certain occasion the pipe plug socket fits a little more closely than the extension. Also it is a good idea to heat up the plug with the blue wrench prior to removing it. They can be a real bear coming out at times especially if something like Indian Head was used on them.


Correct????

92redgt S&K also makes them

oldsmo I don't trust using the extensions anymore since I just stripped one out on a motor. I was just going to get a set and be done with it. Maybe some more heat too.

njbloodline666 snap on, if you are talking about square pipe plugs... if they are female squares they are usually 1/4. 3/8 or 1/2 so you can use a regualr ratchet or extension. for male squares, if you cant use an adjustable wrench..check snap on
