    Tools....where to buy?

    I am struggling to find a 1 1/8" socket in Thailand. I have been to khlong Thom Centre in Bangkok but didn't have any luck.
    I have also tried the Astro tools franchise from Japan.
    Any recommendations?
    Don't want to import but I will if I have to.

    Tool Pro.
    Dunno your nearest.
    They are also stockists of Cromwell products, so if it is not in stock, it can be ordered.
    Or contact Cromwell direct in BKK and they will give you their nearest stockist details.
    Or you can ride up here and borrow mine....

    Thanks, I have messaged Cromwell to find their nearest location. I looked at their PDF catalogue and they have what I'm looking for.

    The e-mails are extremely helpful, thank you. Although I'm on the forum almost everyday day I just hardly ever post, I am trying to make an effort this year so that I can be better knowing the ins and outs of it all!

    Snap on tools here are crazy price wise(same really in the States as well). I have some I brought with me but 90% of my mechanics tool box is all Craftsman.

    I have quite a few tools that I'll be selling when I get ready to leave here. I'll take a load of pics and post them up later.

    Instead of looking for a 1 1/8" socket would the OP be better get the metric equivalent 29 mm?

    Nah, 1.125" is 28.6 mm and the diff of 0.4mm is nothing to worry about on that socket size.
