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.

Made In China

This set, for a weekend warrior mechanic like me, would me more than sufficient. I'm not upset about the tool selection or the fact that the tool count is inflated by useless stamped wrenches or allen key sets that everyone already has. I am upset by the fact that my grandpa gave me this set for Christmas and I didn't have the heart to tell him I'm returning it because 1) It is made in China, 2) The tools feel cheap and won't last as long as the rusty set my grandpa bought 40 years ago, 3) The case is junk and falls apart not to mention this "little" outfit is about 60 lbs. I own this product, but only for a few more days until I can find the receipt. Craftsman is another fine example of why this country has gotten in the mess that it's in.

Great tools but the case is Terrible!


Why use such cheap plastic on such a nice set of tools, The shelves just fall down because the tool box is produced poorly.

Good Tool Set for the Money


This is a good tool set that covers most general needs around the house and in the garage. Overall quality is good, but it is no longer made in the USA and I can tell a difference. I bought this one as a gift for my father and I own the previous version which was made in the USA. There is a noticeable quality difference between the two. That said, the quality is still better than most tools sets for this price.

Great Set for Husband


Got this set at Sears deeply discounted because it was discontinued. Everything works great just like you would expect from Craftsman. Nothing negative to report.

not good


I received this set today, here's what I noticed. Some pieces are made in China, some USA. The case, has to be made in China because it is horrible. The case is put together pieces. The back was hardly attached when I took it out of the box. Once I re-attached the piece, the drawers no longer fit in place. they fell on top of the drawer or bottom below it. Also, I am missing the 4MM 1/4 inch socket. The tools themselves look "standard" meaning like tools. I have not and will not use these tools. For the reason I am missing one socket, and the case is not functional by design, I want a return label and my money back. I will spend a few extra bucks on something more reliable. Sucks I may have to go to someone else other than Craftsman, a USA made product. Or then again, not all these tools are American made.

Great selection of tools


PRO's: This has a great combination of good quality tools and I have really gotten a lot of use out of them.
CON's: Tool box handle is flimsy and often pops off causing the box to fall and tools scatter.
Recommendation: Supply a better box.

Not "real" Craftsman Wrenches


I've been working on engines, small and large since the 1970s. I've owned Craftsman tools since then as well. (I still have my first1/4" set.) These are not the same Craftsman wrenches I grew up using.

Plastic parts make the ratchets a real pain. If you use them too fast the plastic lock that controls the ratcheting action will change on it's own!

This is billed as a "Mechanic's Tool Set", no self-respecting mechanic would own 12-point sockets. They tend to round off stuck fasteners.

The plastic case is a joke. Plastic latches and plastic tabs to keep the drawers shut. There's nothing like having to pick up a trays worth of sockets after a drawer slides out while carrying the box across the driveway. When the temperature drops below freezing the latches don't like to close and they feel like they are going to snap off.

I got these because the price was low and I wanted something to keep in my truck without dealing with separate socket sets. Well, you get what you pay for I guess.

I purchased a set from Dewalt, also purchased at Sears. The Dewalt set is much higher quality and ALL 6-point sockets. The Dewalt case has four metal latches that work in any weather. There are no silly stamped steel wrenches to bring up the piece count either.

This set now sits out in my shed in case I need a wrench out there. The Dewalt set is in my truck right now. Again, I both BOTH sets at Sears, both on sale. Spend an extra $50-$100 and buy the Dewalt set.
