I'm currently a first year apprentice and building my tool kit as I go. I see often larger socket sets include 1/2" drive sockets ranging from 8 or 10mm.
Is there a reason that 1/2" drive sockets of that size would be useful? I understand that larger drive ratchets are stronger and can withstand more torque force, as well as allow for more torque due to longer handles, but wouldn't using such a large drive on fasteners that are that small be inappropriate and possibly detrimental if 1/4" or 3/8" are available?
Is there another reason I am missing? Any answer is appreciated, thanks!
