No, I buy from a local distributor, they have the display and you can buy individual sockets.

I cannot afford a 'set' of Wright sockets. frown

Wright Tools are the best no doubt, they are not over exposed like Snap-On is. But still paying $100+ for a 14 pc set is just crazy.

Check out Epstein Co. http://store.harryepstein.com/cp/38drsets/312.html

Wright tools will even make JHZR happy regarding their USA content.

That sounds just as convenient as shopping at the factory.

No you can not make purchase's direct from the factory. It's cheaper to purchase through Amazon or http://harryepstein.com/
I live is Tuscarawas Co Ohio but work down the street from Wright Tool in Barberton. I own and use many Wright Tools.
















All sockets are Wright.

Are any of the ratchets quick release? Nice looking ratchets but no QR is a deal breaker for me.

Why? Don't you like trying to pull the socket off while your hands are greasy?

I gotta pry my sockets off with a screwdriver sometimes. grin2
