Craftsman 21 pc. Drive Tool Accessory Set

- Sears Exclusive
I bought the Craftsman 21 piece Drive Tool Accessory Set to rebuild my tool collection. The extensions and adapters are the best value for the money. When we replaced a transmission in my friend's car, we needed to get a bolt that was about 2 feet deep in the engine compartment through the wheel well, but it was as easy as connecting a 20 and a 6 together. I love the set, but found a 20 inch in inch drive was missing, so I went to our local Sears and picked it up to complete the collection. I find it odd that it was not included or available in a set for say $79.99 (Hint, Hint Sears/Craftsman). If you need extensions, adapters, or universals, this set is for you. I would recommend it even if you have some of the pieces already because you can never have too much extension.
Checked out individual piece pricing, and was a great value at the sale price. He is happy with every piece in this set, and the quality.
I got one of these for myself a few years ago. I just got one for my father for Christmas. No more struggling to find enough adapters to get the job done. I recommend
Craftsman 21 pc. Drive Tool Accessory Set is a great deal for the price I paid for it.
A perfect assortment of extensions, adapters and swivels.
I couldn't find a better price anywhere for this assortment, it ended up being less expensive than ever ************** AND much higher quality AND a lifetime easy to exchange warranty. Good deal overall!
I believe it's really a 18 pc set, because three adapters are probably never going to be used.
The other bars / adapters / universals are very solidly built and of course guaranteed for life.
This is another quality Craftsman product! I was a bit hesitant to purchase these as most of the Craftsman items in my local store are now being made in China. However, when they arrived I was happy to see that they were Made in America! The finish on these is beautiful. The extensions have solid, sturdy construction. the universal joints pivot easily but are sturdy enough to keep from flopping over. This set comes with every universal joint, step up, and step down made by Craftsman. It has nearly every extension too! The only extensions missing are the 20" length 1/2" drive extension, and the 5", 8", and 16" length 3/4" drive extensions. If you're working to complete your Craftsman collection, you'll need items 44134, 04440, 04441, and 04442 to get the remaining extensions.

I was not expecting this set to be so capable, it literally will be the last extention I buy because it has EVERYTHING including the kitchen sink. There is no end to the combinations that you can create to handle anything you could possible need to reach. Men or women buy it, it is the one you need in your tool box...
Very good set, I use these all the time.
Best way to go, beats buying a cheaper set with less in it. If you can?t get the job finished with this helpful set of extensions and adapters, better pack it in.
This is a great kit and it is really essential to anyone who does much wrenching. Often people wind up purchasing these tools individually over the years as needed, at a much greater cost, and without the convenience of having them all there right when you need them.
The quality is nice with this set, and the value is good, but there are two improvements I would suggest. The first is that it should include the 20in long 3/8" drive extension. It would be worth the extra cost. The other is that it should be sold in a molded storage tray which would keep it organized in your toolbox. Neither improvement would be a deal breaker on purchase price, and they would make the set look far more attractive.
I ordered this set online, USA made. When I got it, the swivels on the 1/2" universal joint weren't machined right. I returned it to my local store and received a chinese made replacement. It's not a huge deal as it works fine but I'm not crazy about Sears farming out the Craftsman name to china.
I bought two of these sets. The finish is perfect and they are made from quality steel as they do not bend or break under torque from a breaker bar or leverage bar. An awesome must have set for any tool box. Very happy with this set. Best of all, MADE IN THE USA. AMERICA!
Still Made in the USA as of 5/15/13...............................for now, get it while you can before they will be shifting production Overseas.
I also ordered the 20" , 1/2" Drive Extension Bar # 944134 to complete the set but I was disappointed to see that it is now being Made in Taiwan.
I am going to go to the local Sears store and see if they have any Made in the USA ones in stock and exchange it. I don't want or support Craftsman Tools made Overseas.
Overall a great value for the money.
This is a nice set but don?t go by the photo. It appears there is a 20? 1/2 drive extension. There is not, you will have to buy this separate which I did. Still made in USA made...Thank God! I am done with Craftsman hand tools when USA made tools are no longer available. What are they thinking... Get them while you can. Bad packing looks like they just throw them in the box. ************* is great!
Unfortunately, these aren't the older "G" style of extensions with the hole that are pictured, they are the very new "H" style with retainers on all 4 walls, but they are still Made in USA, unlike the Made in China extensions that are now in Sears stores. I already have a bunch of extensions, but just wanted an extra set before all of the USA-made ones were gone.
If you want to get nitpicky, these have some QC issues, some of the ends are concave, some are convex, some are flat like they are supposed to be, and the tolerances are pretty sloppy, there is quite a bit of wobble when these are used on a ratchet or put together compared to the older Craftsman extensions.
However, they do work fine and this set is a great value for the price, and even better when on sale and with additional coupons and rewards. As the last of the USA-made stock available, this is a must-have addition to any Craftsman socket set. Get it while you can.
I priced everything separate I saved around $100 bucks by buying
