    I would think the Mac, Snap-on or Matco tool trucks would have them, but I bet they aren't cheap.

    yeah these came from the mac man but they will not sell as a set and they only have 4 sizes that you got to buy each one. went down to jc tn today to noethern tool and the guy didn't have a clue he ask me if i had broke the socket i showed him. i then proceded to tell him it was made that way.

    Are you familiar with "Crows Foot Sockets" ? They are very handy and come in full sets US and Metric.
    I have both sets from HF and they were cheap enough when on sale.

    Sometimes Mac or Snap On dealers have repo's that they will sell at a significant savings. Maybe worth a look. In have a complete set of sockets purchased this way

    Don't think you are going to find anymore than the sizes you listed as they are made for O2 sensors. Try looking for "weatherhead" sockets, lots of guys use them for hydro fittings and they may work for you.

    Out of curiosity, what other uses have you found for them?

    Like these, but they are not deep...

    Boy I dont ever recall seeing a set of slotted sockets in those sizes either. See plenty of 7 & 8 pc sets specifically for sensors. Came across these ring wrenches they call them. Too bad they're just in metric.

    as you just said they work real good on taking hud lines lose where they are so close there is no way to get a wrench or crows foot on them. it just saves alot of time not having to take lines lose around the one you really need. some of the valve bodys i deal with have up to 4 diferent size lines and fittings on them.
