I know this may be off topic, but...
I have a lug nut from a vehicle stuck in a 3/4" craftsman socket. I don't care about the nut, but I would like the socket back. I tried a vise and a hammer to no avail. Any ideas?

I'm guessing that the lug nut got stuck in the socket when you were loosening/removing it from the vehicle. Therefore, the opposite action with equal pressure might get it loose.
Tighten the nut onto the vehicle's lug just as "hard" as you removed it.

I seem to remember someone whose name this web site bears touting the fact that Craftsman tools are warranted for life. Hey, if the socket won't let go of the lug nut, I would consider it broken! See if Sears will give you a new one??

Take the socket to a welding company and have them heat it up with a torch, as the socket cools you should be able to get the nut out. If this doesn't work I like the suggestion of returning it to Sears. Might work.
