pros great case, holds onto wrenches, ratchets, bits, extensions, and driver tight! was leery about the finish chipping but so far no signs of chipping. the driver does not ratchet but does hold onto bits tight with magnet. grabs any type fitting, even old striped partially rounded hex! cons Thick walled sockets makes for a pain every now and again. no deep-well sockets. Wish the set came with a 1/4" bit for bit driver so i can attach sockets but that can be remedied by just switching out bits. Also skips some rarely used wrench sizes. But with all these cons only once in the past 10 jobs have i needed a tool not included in this set. All in all if you are looking for a starter kit to take care of all your tool needs, i would look somewhere else but the nice neat organization makes this my go to set for every odd ball job.
I have had this kit for about two years now. The more I use this kit, the more problems I see. The wrenches are very bulky, the sockets will not stay in place in the case, and all of the rust is bad. I keep this kit locked inside my toolbox and have never left it out in the weather. EVERY tool in the kit has rust on it. My 10 year old Stanley kit has no rust. The finish of these tools looks very good new but does not hold up good at all. The reason I gave it two stars is because I like how good the sockets grip. If Craftsman will fix the rust issue and the case not holding the sockets very good then they will have a decent kit.
when buying on line,, one needs to really read carefully what is in the package. I was needing some long and short sockets and the ones needed was not in the package. However, it was a good buy, just didn't have what I needed.
Now the 50 mile drive to get them was a nice outing for the wife and me. She got to see some country that she hadn't seen before.
Great tool set with the high quality I expected with Craftsman.
