Where can I find an imperial socket set?

I'm rebuilding a 1964 Triumph Spitfire here in France I need a non-metric socket set but don't seem to be able to find one over here or online. Can you please advise on a suitable site for an internet buy?

You shouldn't have much trouble finding an imperial socket set to buy online. The best advice is to avoid the really cheap stuff and go for a decent product. A mid-range set from Sealey or Draper is fine, while at the higher end you've got brands like Teng Tools and Snap-On. A 3/8in driver set should be fine, but try and get one with deep sockets.
