Incredibly useful, but expensive.

These flare nut wrenches were the only way to quickly change my sister's fuel filter. Definately handy for hard to reach areas. Only downside is the cost. I'm waiting for a sale to buy the metric.

Made in China!

Why buy a Chinese made craftsman product when you can buy a higher quality American made SK set for a very little more?

purchase

I bought this set to use to tighten flare nuts on tubing. To tighten and loosen them without rounding off the corners of the nuts by just using a crows foot wrench.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

china ) :

these are useful for certain jobs but I was disappointed to discover that they are Chinese made. craftsman is getting a bad reputation from putting their name on tools like this. to keep the open end from spreading I clamp large vice grips over the sides . I love the American made craftsman stuff .

Do NOT buy this product

Bought this set to take off air lines on a truck. Only needed the 1", but in store you could only buy the 10 piece set. Fine, never know when another size will be needed for something else. However, these are junk Made in China! The problem is that they begin to separate at the open end & want to slip around the nut you are trying to turn, therefore stripping it. Remember, this is a 3/8" drive & you are not going to load it with much torque. They are just made as cheaply as possible in China with pot metal & are junk! Am going to try to return them, though do not see it happening as the one piece was used.

Good Quality Wrenches - but Made in China?

I work at Ford dealership and put these flare nut wrenches to the test multiple times without any problems. Their wide body and contact surface area are perfect. Not happy about paying $80 for Made in China though - I would be willing to pay extra if these were made in USA.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman flare nut crow foot wrenches.

These tools got me out of a jam.  I didn't know they existed until visiting the Vienna Sears store to get a broken flare nut wrench replaced.  When I got home, I used one of the crowfoot wrenches which allowed me to loosen a very tight brake line connection which was in an awkward location.

The crow foots are thick which allows good contact with a flare nut.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Now made in china

For starts, these used to be made in the USA in mid 2010. Now they are made in China. I purchased a metric set in 2010 made in the USA. I recently ordered the SAE set online and got China tools. You can still get the older USA ones in stores for as long as that stock remains, but online you will get China made. Every manufacturer claims that it is made to the same specifications and quality, but here is the scoop on these. I took my online ordered chinese ones to the store and exchanged for an old stock USA set. If you compare them side by side, here are the major differences. The USA set has fully radiused corners, where the chinese set is more squared off. The USA set is tapered down significantly on the smaller sizes for more tool clearance, whereas the Chinese set has no tapering and could limit accessibility. The USA set had no forging marks prior to chroming, but the chinese set had a few cosmetic dings that got chromed over. So in my opinion the USA set is cosmetically and functionally better. As for strength, only time will tell. Everybody is switching to Chinese stuff with a lifetime warranty, which makes you older USA stuff more of a relic. Makes the warranty pretty useless in my opinion, but I buy USA stuff because I figure it is better made and I shouldn't need the warranty. Same with ***** - if you have older 6point sockets and go in for a replacement, they can only offer you 12point replacements. They will give you a money back so that you can go to Sears and buy a USA made 6 point socket, but who knows how long those will be made in the USA. My 2 cents is don't buy Sears products made in China. Teach these CEOs that the reason you pay a bit more is for the USA made tools, not to save a few bucks on Chinese products.

Overpriced but chrome is nice.

So I bought these online, got a smokin deal, paid $56 each for the SAE and metric sets. Received Chinese product. Luckily my stores had USA made stock on the shelf so I exchanged it, but the new product is no longer US made even at the insistance of the online help. For $15 you can buy a Chinese lifetime guaranteed flare nut set, why spend $80 for one? Way overpriced. If I ever have to warranty it, it will be with a Chinese product, so I might actually return them as that is why I paid the extra for the Craftsman name. I paid extra for US and warranty, but will get Chinese in return? Bogus.
