I bought two 3/8" and two 1/4" sets at half price sale. I don't care whether it made in China or USA, the quality is the same with the Sears life time warranty. The sockets 12mm and 19mm are missing from the set. No problem. I like the 12 pt sockets for tight space and fast fit for 6pt screws or square head screws. The ratchet is so smooth with the fine teeth gear on it for limited space turn. The sockets made with the teeth inside give a good bite of the screw or bolt or nut. I got other old style Craftsman sockets. This is the best design I use more often as a professional tool set. I don't mind to buy the 12 mm and 19 mm sockets since I paid half price for the sets.
no 12mm in set which is a very common size--but their is a 11mm which fits nothing
This set has come in handy a lot. Easy to use.
To be honest, I really tried to fracture a socket or ratchet by putting extra torque on the piece. No problems and no broken equipment. These are well made, rapid to access size and have no sharp and unfinished surfaces. These are made in Taiwan and are tough. Definitely forged and not cast.
I bought the Craftsman 19-piece 3/8-in Drive Universal Socket set because two of my cars have star bolts holding some parts on. Two different cars with two different sizes of star bolds. Sometimes these bolts can be removed by using a 12-point socket or box wrench. Not in my case. The bolts had been rounded off by previous attempts at removing them. Even so the correct size Universal socket fit perfectly and I was able to remove the star bolt with no further complications. I have not tried these sockets on other types of bolts or nuts yet but I am confident they will The set has both SAE and Metric sizes so should cover most applications in the size range. A good set to keep in the emergency too box. I would recommend this tool set. Comes with the Craftsman Lifetime Warantee.
