Default 6 point sockets

Iím trying to track down a six point socket set, Whitworth/BSF sizes and ideally half inch drive.

Has anyone any suggestions of where to look? Struggling to find anything and Oakley didnít turn up anything either.

I bought a set of 3/8" drive Koken 6 point sockets from UK tools, seem like decent quality and price - link to shop

Phill, these were the ones I got last year, they have been well used with no problems at all.

Looks similar to the set I bought, hasn't got the 9/16" socket though and I suppose that's the most important one?
