    Anybody know where I can pick up a thin walled 19mm socket? I need one to put my frame sliders on. Not sure why Vortex made it so you can't fit a regular socket in it...

    Checked crappy tire and they didnt have any.

    Try different ones. My Deep wall sockets have narrower walls and obviously are longer.

    Why don't you just grind down the side of the socket and use that. 19 mm is a 3/4" socket same size.

    Hey Bernie

    Isn't that what a good mechanic does, takes a perfectly good tool and make it better by modification. LOL :D

    :) close Thad, I would drop by Princess Auto on Springfiled (5 minutes) and grab a crap metric one. Kidding, I'm too impatient, I would have drilled out the slider to fit my socket, done in 2 minutes!
