Can not beat craftsman warranty. this set comes with everything that is needed for the basic diy mechanic. I brought two sets one for me and one for my brother. Makes a great gift for any DIY and hands on guy.
Wanted Craftsman because they are supposedly "Higher end" tools.- Purchased this set last night, returned this morning! I am DONE with Craftsman, Now made in China they have really taken a nose dive in the quality dept..- The sockets as well as the ratchets are both designed totally different now where they snap together - As soon as I snapped the first socket to a ratchet I could see the difference - all three drives have a huge wobbly gap between socket and ratchet when joined. I took "Old school" sockets and ratchets to the store to give a comparison to the clerk - yes the older sets from years past have a gap in that area but nowhere near as wide or wobbly as the new design. Another cruel "Joke" in this set is, there are shallow and deep sockets in the 1/4 drive, but ZERO deep sockets in the 3/8 drive. A 1/4 drive, 9/16 - deep - socket is all but useless on a rusted out 9/16 nut but that is the only option you have with this set!! Instead they chose to give a duplicate set of SHORT sockets in the 3/8 drive, one set being 6 point, one set 12 point - WHY WHY WHY??? - A novice will see 230 pieces of shiny "Craftsman" tools and think he got a great deal - Anyone used to "Old school" Craftsman buying this set will say, "This set is a joke."
3/8" ratchet had been used for a total of maybe 5 minutes since new, it skips teeth when it turns, if it turns it binds up. These are certainly NOT my father's Craftsman. Then I take it to sears and it will take a day or two to repair it.
Has all the sockets you will most likely use all in one place. Craftsman warranty, quality feel to them. My recommendation is that you memorize which side is up by looking at the tabs that lock this, as if this is opened upside down, it is 52 card pickup. If you happen to do this, you will memorize the right side up and not do it ever again. Light enough to put in your trunk and take along with you to fix things. Spend the money, you can hand these down to your grandkids, as they are built to last
All the tools are very well built. The only problem is the case they came in. The handle should be on
The same side as the side that has the tool retainer. If you use the handle to open the case, all the tools
Fall out. The handle is a great idea, it really helps to open the case, but it is on the wrong side!
Nice assortment of hand tools at a very good price. Sears is great when it comes to delivery very fast.
