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.

I bet that 90 year old hardware store has some neat stuff. smile

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
