12 mm missing


Cheap foreign junk!!!
Gave Tools to my 10-year-old grandson to play with after I told him that they were not real tools so as not to confuse him. Not fit for a mans tool box. Lost all confidence in Sears!

Set was used and returned.


The set was what I wanted, but had been used and returned. It was scratched and most of the original packing gone. I tried to exchange, but the local store dis not carry. Very disappointing.

Not My Father's Craftsman Tools


I have used Craftsman tools for over 30 years, and my father used them for over 50 years. The original Made In USA tools were tough and reliable. The full replacement warranty on these tools was great, although they seldom had to be replaced.

In this new century, many Craftsman tools are now made in China, which has been a great disappointment to many Craftsman tool fans. This single step may be one of the major reasons why Sears is an endangered species.

In order to keep bringing customers back, Craftsman has introduced several tool innovations. One such innovation is the "Universal" socket, which can be used on hex, square, spline, and even rounded bolts.

I purchased this set in order to try the Universal sockets and wrenches. The set tends to run a little on the small side with the wrenches, with 3/8 being the largest size. There is an interesting combination of 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch drive sockets and a variety of adaptors to go with the single 3/8 inch ratchet that is included.

The finish is different than the traditional Craftsman chrome finish, but these are different sockets and wrenches than the traditional Craftsman tools. It remains to be seen whether they last the same 30 years as my original socket set, but this set isn't a bad addition to my tool chest.

My other criticism is that the tools arrive in a small cardboard box. I had to purchase a small Craftsman toolbox to house this and a few other of the tools of the new generation.
