And since each piece is precision crafted from rugged alloyed steel, it can take on the toughest jobs and stop rounding in its tracks. Add this tool set to your arsenal and get the job done right, with Craftsman.
I bought this set after much deliberation. I only looked at Craftsman as it is the best overall value. I ended up with this set as it is the best set for someone who wants a lot of wrenches and sockets and not the other stuff. Buying add-ons to this set, I believe, will produce fewer duplication of tools. I'm not wholly impressed with the quality of the finish on the sockets. This is unrelated to the tool set. There were about 15 sockets delivered without a full finish. A few were even showing a bit of surface rust. One 11/16 socket read 1/16 and I was completely missing a 10mm socket. The missing 10mm was given without any hassle. The unfinished sockets were not replaced as Sears stated they will only replace tools that are not functioning and rusting, unfinished or mis-labeled tools function properly. Overall, the set is exciting to have and is just want I need and want, but the individual sample selection of the sockets, with the current policy, is dissappointing.
Good: The variety. That is all!! Bad: packaging, it was missing socket, wrench and nut driver. QA item checklist paper is a chaos, no logic on how things are organized both on the paper and in the packaged bags. Sockets are missing chrome plating, size engravings is very hard to read. On some sockets it looks like the size was scratched with the needle and not laser carved. It It appears this set was made by different manufactures. Metal used from one size of socket to another looks very different. I have a feeling Sears/Craftsman does not make a complete set, but buys different pieces from the lowest bidders. Overall quality suffers. Very disappointing. Sears/Craftsman please improve quality of your packaging and products or you might soon loose all your customers.
all China made
Ordered the 413 piece set for my son's high school graduation. Extremely happy. Only 2 items wrong. I added a screwdriver set and a couple of more pliers and feel he has a complete set of tools.
The set has everything I need for standard and metric.
Pretty disappointed that these were not manufactured in America. I have always bought Craftsman tools because they were quality affordable tools made in the U.S., but not any more.
yes now I have good tool's to work with, could use some more now.
