WTF
It's the little things.  I've had this socket set for years, and I guess I never needed an 11mm socket before.

   

I mean, I have an 11mm socket from another kit, but still.

Any excuse to buy newer, better, nicer tools will do.

RE: WTF
Given the fact that you hadn't missed the 11mm until now, I'd say the kit was correct to not include it.

Normally, I'd agree, but these are fine and while I could buy a better brand to replace them, I'd never know the difference.

You already said you had an 11mm from another kit that isn't getting much use. I'm not sure what we're discussing.

RE: WTF
Yes, but now that I need an 11mm socket, I need to carry that case plus one loose socket. It's like a Jony Ive design.

Or just buy or put together a toll roll. You only need a few of those.

I was planning on doing this anyway, so I suppose that solves it.  And I'd be maintaining the tool kit as I go along. 

It's still stupid that have two shallow 10s and 12s but no shallow 9s or 11s or and two deep 10s but no deep 11.

11mm and 7/16 fit roughly the same bolts.

Shoeman do you see a 7/16 in that kit?

(but that's good to know in the future as I have a deep 7/16 [that's what beddy said])

No I don't, but an actual honest to God 11mm fastener is pretty rare.  Most of the time they're there because some dipshit put an SAE bolt in a metric application.

More common on the farm, Deere uses some odd ones sometimes. I suspect it's so guys can use standard sizes with "acceptable" results.

RE: WTF
I had to buy some non-standard sizes for the CB350. I think that's where my 23mm came from. I wanna say the same for my 11mm, but I don't recall for sure.

Well, yeah. That's certainly an example.

But I was talking more about the guys who have stripped a bolt/nut and then turn around and grab something that sorta works off the bench and use that instead.

I've also noticed that in my Audi - there's a lot of 13mm bolts, which you can acceptably take off with a 1/2" wrench.

Legend has it, there was a time you only needed a 13mm wrench to do all maintenance on any European car.
