A new 2-in-1 socket and bit holder set from Laser Tools, part number 8790, is suitable for use with ¼ inch shank bits and ¼ inch drive sockets, featuring a quick-chuck end for ease of use, and very suitable for use with cordless drills and screwdrivers.

Bits included are PzDrive: Pz1, Pz2 and Pz3; Flat: 5.5mm and 6.5mm; hex: 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm; Star: T10, T15, T20, T25, T27, T30 and T40. ¼ inch D All-Drive sockets included are 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm, 11mm and 12mm (All-Drive sockets fit a range of profiles including: metric, AF, spline, star, Whitworth and BA).

The bits are manufactured from tough S2 impact grade steel, and the sockets from chrome vanadium steel.
