I agree that sometimes finding the right size tool makes a job take longer. Some of the socket sets at Harbor Freight are color-coded, i.e. 11mm is anodized red, 12 is orange, 13 is yellow, etc. - I imagine that you get used to finding the right color, or perhaps they ascend in ROY G. BIV order??? I'm surprised that I haven't seen more of this, but perhaps the anodization wears out faster than chrome.
