    unless your grease monkeying full time...

    dont buy a full set of impact sockets.

    go online and spend the money on a moderate to good (high for your really commmon use one like the 27mm) impact sockets for the jobs you need them for.

    buy a socket rail for them and label the sockets for the jobs they do.

    Yep. I've got a dial indicator and mag base I didn't know I needed, and as I've never used it I guess I didn't.

    My dial indicator with mag base was purchased to determine run-out that then cost $12K to correct. Dial gauges can be expensive, although frequent coupling breakages was expensive too.

    I have 4 dial indicators and 3 different bases. Still find I don't have the right setup sometimes.

    I'm basically retired, so it was purely an impulse buy. However, my son has a twin cam Fiat with adjustable cams, so it may come in handy one day.
