Metric Conundrum

So riddle me this, Metric tool sets come with 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch drive sockets. WHY? I thought metric was all cool and shit. And don't embarrass yourself saying it is for the American market. I used to work for a German company working on European equipment with tool kits built and bought in Europe for the European market.

Just curious.


  1. Economic's, this way they only make a standardized drive socket that work's with English Inch or Metric socket's.

  2. Same reason that drive-up ATMs have braille bumps on the keypad?
