    13mm is slightly bigger than 1/2''
    11mm is slightly smaller than 7/16''
    It certainly could be used in low torque applications, but you risk stripping the bolt on things requiring higher torque or if the material is low grade/soft.








    (I'm sure you already knew that, just mentioning for the OP)

    Yeah. And, the sizes work well if something has slightly rusted, and the original size is too big, like a factory 13mm hex I use the 1/2'' if it's an old nasty bolt.
