Can you use SAE instead of metric?

Can you use Metric sockets on SAE fasteners or SAE Sockets on Metric Fasteners? Yes, you can use some sockets on both metric and SAE sizes. However, you need to be careful, as most times they are not exactly the same, and you can strip a bolt by using an SAE socket on a metric bolt and vice versa.

## What’s the difference in metric and standard tools?

Standard tools use the imperial or SAE measuring system, commonly used in the USA. Metric tools rely on the metric measurement system. The difference is in the units, where standard tools will use inches, feet, miles, and yards. The metric system uses millimeters, centimeters, meters, and kilometers for expression.

What’s the difference between SAE and metric tools?

While the majority of bolt-type fasteners used in the United States conform to one or the other measurement scale, the difference between SAE and metric fasteners (and their corresponding sockets) is as profound as the difference between yards and meters: They are almost the same, but not quite.

### How do I know if my tools are metric?

Standard tools use inches as their base unit, while metric tools rely on millimeters.

What does M8 mean on a bolt?

So an M8 bolt would have a shaft diameter that’s slightly under 8mm which means that the bolt should fit through an 8mm hole. But it’s common practice to drill clearance holes that are slightly larger to allow for misalignment.
