Starter set for my soon to be 21 year old son. He will soon be living on his won and this will give him a strong basic mechanics tool set that is self contained with a spot for everything. Hopefully this feature will help him learn to put things away where they belong and he will learn the benefits of being organized.
Ok so it’s made in China. Let’s get that out of the way first. Now I’ll tell you why this is a very fair price. For the number and variety of tools included, you can’t touch this price if you had to buy them individually. The quality is very close to the original USA made items. For a regular weekend mechanic these will do just fine. As a retired 40 year mechanic I can say with confidence that this price point is just right for what you get.
I mean... it’s a set of craftsmen sockets. I think that pretty much says it. The case is sturdy plastic, the shelves slide easily, and it’s a wide range of sizes, depth, and points. If you need sockets and a few wrenches then it’s a good set. Also a good number of screw bits. Everything was a little greasy when I got it and the top shelf doesn’t lock in the sockets well so they were everywhere.
