I bought this for my daughter and we have put it to use in detail for new apartment projects. This is a very versitile combination of tools for home and apartment jobs from picture hanging to putting together those boxed items from China. Thanks to the Seares salesman for his detailed reccomendation.
I am a retired construction teacher. I have been around tools of all kinds all of my life. I bought these tools for my son so he can carry them in his car for emergency use only. That's not going to happen. However, at the end of this review, I did find a better use for them.
I saw these tools beside the Craftsman tools and thought I gie them a shot. These are the worst quality tools I have ever had. The smaller allen wrenches are so whimpy you can bend them with your fingers. Some are not even bent into a 90 degee angle. The ratchet has a plastic directional selector that feels loose, the level is not even close to being accurate and the diagonal cutting pliers are ground so crooked the ends don't even tough when you hold them up to the light. The ratcheting srewdriver movement is loose and sloppy before before it was used, the sockets won't fit snuggly on the ratchet . The hammer head is apparently attached with an 1/8th in roll pin instead of being molded onto the handle. Beware buying any tool set when you can't actually see the tools before buying them. The plastic case is the best thing about this tool set. Apparently, they should have just thrown the tools in a paper bag and saved the boxes for a real tool set.
Although they look similar, those ************** el-cheapo tools are better quality than these tools. Kmart/Sears should not have this low quality tools in their stores. They are an insult to have in the store. The only practical use I can see for them is to use them to tie them on my fishing line as weights in swift water.
This product is amazing.. excellent ballance between price and quality
