What is the equivalent of a 10mm socket?
So what is a 10mm socket equivalent? The equivalent imperial size of a 10mm socket is a 3/8 socket. Imperial sizes are known as SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) or Standard. Metric sizes, also known as SI (Système International), from the French International System.
What size is a 36mm socket?
What is a 36 mm in standard size? A 36mm socket is 1 7/16″ in standard(SAE) size, almost. 1 7/16″ converts into so a 1 7/16 socket is the standard socket that best fits a 36mm fastener. OK, all these questions might take a while, this socket conversion chart might be more helpful.
What is the most common socket size?
The most common type of socket is the E type. The E stands for Edison and indicates that the socket is a screw type. The size is a simple millimeter measurement of the width. An E26 socket (the most common type) is 26 millimeters wide and features an Edison thread interior. Additionally, this socket is referred to as a Medium socket.
What is the socket conversion chart?
This socket conversion chart tells you which standard (SAE) socket to use with your metric (mm) fasteners, it is not a measurement conversion chart. Visit www.LRFIX.com Tip: If your slightly over-sized socket doesn’t fit you can try placing a thin piece of cloth over the bolt before pressing the socket into place.
What is the most common socket used in the United States?
The three most often used sockets in the United States of America are the E12 (candelabra), the E26 (medium), and the E39 (mogul). As indicated in the table, there are several sockets that fall between these sizes. These three types of lighting are the most frequently used in traditional lighting.
What is a bipin socket?
A bipin or bi-pin (sometimes referred to as two-pin, bipin cap or bipin socket) is a type of lamp fitting. They are included in the IEC standard “IEC 60061 Lamp caps and holders together with gauges for the control of interchangeability and safety”. They are used on many small incandescent light bulbs (especially halogen lamps), and for starters on some types of fluorescent lights.
Why do fittings have different bases?
Light bulbs have to fit snugly into light fixtures, so they are designed with different bases. The light bulb base has to match the socket in the light fixture. If light bulb bases were standardized, light bulbs could be interchangeable across many fixtures. However, light bulb bases are not standardized. This is to prevent dangerous light bulbs from being used in light fixtures that aren’t designed for them. Light fixture sockets have a grip on the inside of the socket, and light bulb bases have a matching metal tab on the outside of the base. A light bulb with no grip can be inserted into any kind of light fixture, but it won’t stay in place because the grip and tab don’t match up. This is why light bulb bases aren’t standardized: if they were interchangeable across light fixtures, people would risk inserting a light bulb into sockets that weren’t designed for them.
What is an E11 bulb?
E11 (mini candelabra) is 11mm (0.433 in) in diameter and is a bit smaller than E12 (candelabra) which is 12mm in diameter. Its applications are very limited. E11’s are most commonly used for small, halogen (hot!) bulbs. Another most obvious application is obviously for 120-volt chandelier/candelabra. Low voltage models are used on Lionel toy trains and other toys. The E11 base is sometimes used for 50/75/100-watt halogen lamps in North America, where it is called the “mini-can”.
What is the smallest light bulb base?
The smallest light bulb base is G4 with a diameter of 4 mm.
What is the diameter of an E-10 bulb?
In the lamp base designation “E-10” (sometimes called Miniature Edison Screw (MES), “E” stands for “Edison” and “10” indicates the diameter in millimeters as measured across the peaks of the thread on the base, e.g., E-10 base bulbs have a diameter of 10 mm. E-10 base light bulbs have a single contact on the bottom and are used in flashlights, indicators, and toys.
What are the types of lights that are used in a standard light fixture?
They are commonly used for general lighting in standard light fixtures, such as ceiling lights, lamps, can lights, outdoor spotlight and flood light fixtures, and vanity lights .
Sizing Wrenches for Metric Bolts
If you’re looking to find the right wrench for a metric bolt, the conversion is very much the same. Once you’ve identified which metric wrench you would use, look at the chart to locate its SAE counterpart. Now, we do realize that the chart doesn’t look complete on the metric side.
Converting Smaller Wrench Sizes
Didn’t see the spanner size you were looking for? No worries! We have both metric to SAE and SAE to metric conversion charts for hex keys. Be sure to read the instructions as smaller wrenches are more difficult to substitute for one another. Also, smaller pieces of hardware are more prone to getting stripped or damaged.
What is the equivalent of a 10mm socket?
The equivalent imperial size of a 10mm socket is a 3/8 socket. Imperial sizes are known as SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) or Standard. Metric sizes, also known as SI (Système International), from the French International System.
What is the size of a M8 bolt?
Fasteners are described by their thread diameter, not the head size. So in the case of an M8 bolt, the diameter of the bolt measures 8mm, but the bolt head will require a 13mm wrench or socket to drive it.
Why do I like 12 point ring wrenches?
The reason I like these wrenches, they’re 12 point ring so they grip the walls of the fastener and not the edges, that makes a difference when your opening stubborn nuts and bolts. Spinning a wrench on a nut is a real pain in the jacksie, cos now the job just got bigger.

Should every household have a tool kit?
Every household should have a decent tool kit, it’ll pay for itself many times over, guaranteed. I know this because our kitchen sink tap came loose, my wife called the plumber, his call-out rate was almost the price of this set. Apparently, I was asked several times to take care of it.
