Ratcheting Wrenches, Oh Yeah!

This set is all you need for sockets and wrenches. All sizes, 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2". Standard & metric. The best difference between this and the 255 piece set is the ratcheting wrenches. Also, this tool box has individual holders for the wrenches under the flip top, rather than just a drawer where they just lay together. Assortment of torx bits, hex head and miniature wrenches too.

Overall good value for money but come on!

I'm a serious shade tree mechanic and this tool set is my in-car tool kit. The pros: Ratcheting wrenches, lots of sockets in 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch drives and value for money, both metric and SAE sockets and wrenches. The cons: mini wrenches are stamped and not cast steel, Torx bits for 1/2 inch drive (why is that necessary in a starter kit when 3/8" drive has them?), no thumb drive sockets, no slots for other wrenches and lots of empty space in the box make it less than ideal to expand your set, not all sizes needed in wrenches so have to purchase a few extra

GREAT TOOLS - GREAT VALUE!!

|

I have been shopping for some time looking for mechanics set for my son. This set has everything he will need for the home mechanic and then some. Having all three drive ratchets and sockets, plus box/open end wrenches, Allen wrenches, AND TORX drive, makes this a complete set anyone would find adequate. Coming pre-packed in a tool chest is another plus - although I do find the plastic tool case a bit lacking, it is ok to start. A metal 3-drawer with top lidded compartment would be better, but certainly can be an 'addition' later on.

I LOVE Craftsman tools - my Dad always used them and trained me well! This particular set was available at this great value at the right time - just in time for Christmas. Santa will be good to my son this year!

Good starter set

|

Its a pretty useful set for home, for the sale price right now who wouldn't buy? The warranty behind them too is great, no hassle just take the broken tool and replace it. However with today's vehicles the standards are practically useless so instead of including those in the set maybe throw some pliers, wire cutters, flex head ratchets or something used regularly.

Great online deal. my brother owns this set. I bought one as a birthday gift to a friend with no tools at all. The set comes with everything a shade tree mechanic might use.

Tool Set

This tool set is a great value for the cost. My husband primarily uses Craftsman tools because of the guarantee and he has never been disappointed.

Great tool set

|

This toolbox has it all in one place. What a great addition to any shop or for your trunk to take with you anywhere. This was one of the black Friday specials and we got a creep seat with it. Even without the bonus gift, this is a great set. I recommend it for anyone on your list that works on cars, around the house, or for work. Craftsman tools are the best.

263 craftman tool set

I am very pleased with the tools. However the carry case will pop open while carrying and your tools will drop out.

a very nice gift set

|

We liked the set very much. We opened it the same day we bought it and found two tiny metric sockets missing. We called a toll free number listed in the paperwork, and the manufacturer sent right out the two sockets. So, very happy with the customer service too!

Not too bad

|

I agree with several of the post that indicate that many of the pieces are found in the bit drivers which is slightly annoying. But as for completeness in tool sets of this price range it is probably the best.

Real nice tool set

|

When I got this set I was debating between this the 263 piece and another set the Craftsman 309 piece set. I am very happy I went with this set. The 309 didn't come with a box which was the biggest deal breaker. I was going to lose pieces without the box. I think the 263 will work for me in most cases. I am sure that every now and then I will need a larger size of sockets, but that is bound to happen.
