Lower BUT wider

When I first saw it, I thought this line was just a gimmick, however, it is one of those tools that has its place if you have the extra cash. This set comes with 1/4" and 3/8" square socket adapters to make it compatible with additional traditional sockets. It also has the screw driver style driver which many traditional ratchet sets do not include (I find them very helpful for hand tightening during reassembly). Max Axess is not much better than a traditional ratchet set. Mostly, it is just different. It fits in places where another ratchet might not and vice versa. The 3/8" equivalent ratchet has a lower profile than my traditional 3/8" ratchets which came in handly on a project yesterday in which the traditional ratchets had a very limited range of motion because of an obstruction. On the other hand, the head is wider than the traditional ratchets which means that there are other tight spaces in which Max Axess would not fit. I have yet to need the pass through feature; experience tells me it will not be handy terribly often for my car usage. I really like how the lower profile should direct the torque more in the intended direction. Traditional ratchets place the fulcrum further away from the fastener which is amplified by extensions and deep sockets. Sometimes the torque gets redirected enough to twist the socket off the fastener which can strip the fastener. The bottom line: this tool is helpful to have in your arsenal of different styles of the same tool that help you in those odd situations that arise in tight spaces (get it on sale). If you need a first ratchet set, this one would work for you but don't bother paying much more for Max Axess than a traditional set as it is only marginally better.

Problem with Max Axess socket set

I have used Craftsman tools > 40 yrs and have a garage and workshop full of them. So I bought this 51 pc Max Axess set for my son-in-law since he doesn't have many tools and figured this would get him started. This set was ordered on-line from SEARS on Monday (Dec 24) and delivered on the 27th. Pretty good I thought when it showed up as promised from the order and the box was delivered in excellent condition. My son-in-law opened the case and started to work with the sockets and extensions. Virtually all seem to attach and detach. But when he connected the 3" extension (#35415) to an adapter (#3542), he couldn't get them separated. He, my daughter, my wife and I have tried for over 2 hours to get these two items pulled apart and can't get them apart! Maybe these are not supposed to go together? My daughter will probably return them to the store for a refund. The tool's design may be unique, but the manufacturing quality control is not adequate. Be wary of the MAX AXESS tools!
