Would someone with Narex chisels do me a favor and measure the socket size?

I’m currently away from my home but have access to a few woodworking tools here, so decided to make a turntable style chisel rack. Problem is I don’t have any of my chisels here with me but was able to find some in the local hardware store to measure , but they don’t carry Narex so I’m SOL there. And there’s no information about the socket size online (are they standardized?) Was hoping someone could tell me in inches (fraction or decimals, whatever your caliper gives you) what the diameter of the Narex chisel socket is at its thickest and thinnest part. Thanks!

I am very new to this craft and may be wrong, but I have never seen NAREX socket chisels.

Well, maybe they’re not socket chisels, but whatever the conical structure is that the handle seats into. I thought that was called the socket.

You probably want to know what the ferule diameter is.

Well, whatever the diameter of the thickest and thinnest part of the ‘neck’ in the bottom lateral view of this image is called in technical terms:

I’ll go measure mine, give me a minute.

Ok, I have 4 of the bevel edged chisels I got from Highland Hardware. The neck part of that tang varies for each size.

6mm (1/4”) – from 1/4” to 1/2”
12mm (1/2”) – from 9/32” to 1/2”
20mm (3/4”) – from 3/8” to 9/16”
26mm (1”) – from 13/32” to 19/32”
