Not a daily driver

The finish on these ratchets is top notch. The action is superb and spins very easily. The heavier handle adds a nice balanced feel, for whatever that's worth. The button release action is silky smooth. They really are eye catching, just machined and tooled beautifully. For me they are the perfect secondary/back-up ratchets for those occasions when I need the fine tooth gears or the slightly thinner head profile. I say secondary/backup because for me the ergonomic short, very flat, heavy and wide handle design was not very ergonomic at all. The short handle makes for less torque and more strength that you must use and the thin rectangular-ish shape grew old fast. I found in daily use that they are fatiguing and hard on my hands, almost painful in higher torque situations. In certain cases these fine tooth gears are nice to be sure, but I find that for extended use in harsh environments that the tried and true, extra strength and durability of the 36 tooth (10 degree) long and round handle designs are much better as my primary. Not trying to imply that somebody shouldn't buy these ratchets. Look in any professional mechanics box and you'll find a variety of ratchets and drivers for a myriad of situations. Just saying that for me they found a specific place in my box, though it wasn't as my daily driver. Also check out the Craftsman pro line # 44813, 44814, etc. for a stronger, ergonomic, longer handled, daily/professional use alternative, (Dubbed " The best performing ratchet we've ever offered!") .

The worst shopping experience ever

I didn't receive a Made in USA set but I found one in a local store. However, the store refused to let me exchange it even I called sears.com twice. I spent 2 hours in my local sears trying to communicate with a very rude associate and his manager. When I said I would like to exchange it, the associate replied "How are we going to sell this?" Noted that the package of the 3 pc thin profile ratchet set I purchased online was just a plain white paper box which is different from the retail package in stores. Eventually craftsman is going to be crapsman. Sears used to be a good place to shop, but not anymore.

glad I chose these

Sleek, easy on the hands design improves grip without biting or pinching skin. Solid, heavy construction. Great finish. My favorite go-to ratchets!

Thin Profile Ratchet Set + Lifetime warranty

|

I used Thin Profile Ratchet Set many time on my car project. Also I used this to replace the 4 struts/shocks on my car today. These sockets took a SERIOUS beating today and a CRAZY amount of torque without showing any signs of wear. They got through every nut and bolt I threw at them. I was really impressed. You can tell by handling them that they are made well and of good quality.

Can't buy them even when advertised on the front page of the Sears website as being on sale.

|

Tried to buy online at the sale price 11/30/2012. Won't let me add it to cart. Then is suddenly unavailable. It will be available tomorrow when the sale price expires.

No wonder Sears is circing the drain. I'm looking forward to another company buying the Craftsman name so I can actually purchase Craftsman products when they are advertised as being on sale.

Maybe it's better I didn't get to buy them anyway since the new ones are all made in China.

Pretty good ratchet set.

|

These are much better than the standard craftsman ratchets. I can't stand the normal craftsman's, but these are actually decent.

"Sexy Elegant" - a joy to use!

|

Got a deal on a closeout set of sockets that included the 3/8" drive ratchet; became so spoiled with the way it fit & felt in my hand that I couldn't wait until this set went on sale! Now I get to be spoiled every time I wrench on any project whether for work or pleasure. Granddad told me, "Son, always choose and buy the tools you'll actually use & enjoy, take care of them, & they'll take care of you!" Sure wish he could see these ...

Gives the Tool Truck Brands a Run for Their Money

|

I've had these ratchets since 2003 and they are excellent!! After 9 years of good use, I've had no reliability issues. With a 60 tooth design &amp; thin head, these babies fit anywhere. Polished Chrome, intelligently designed, comfortable handle, well balanced design, quick release easy socket removal- It's safe to say these are Craftsman's best ratchets they've released.

However, a very unfortunate dilemma has occurred within the last 6 months. THESE RATCHETS ARE NO LONGER FORGED AND MACHINED IN THE USA! Now they are made in Taiwan. Sears, what happened? What's with the outsourcing? Is someone trying to kill the Craftsman name??? This is why I give only a three star rating on a product that would have gotten 5 stars. Hopefully, some entity will bring these back to production in the USA, as they were a great ratchet. I can't speak for the Taiwan version, because I will no longer purchase Taiwan or Chinese Craftsman branded ratchets.

The HIPED up ratchet set from craftsman

|

I am a professional mechanic. I bought these ratchets 2 years ago. A big mistake. The 1/4&quot; and 3/8&quot; ratchets will slip and the gears are not holding. They will change directions. Do not buy these. Sears is getting mine back.
