I recently bought this set as a starter set (as so many have already called it) for my youngest son, Jacob. A few months back, my wife called and told me that there was a 1976 Pontiac Firebird for sale from a private seller about 65 miles from the house. We called and learned that the seller was very anxious to sell the car and had actually started his listing at $2,800 only to lower it to $1,150 (including towing) in only a week?s time, so, we bought it. It does run and we purchased it simply to turn around and sell it again for the price it should have gotten in the first place but, Jake saw the car and fell in love with the thing!
After a lot of deliberation the wife and I decided that since Jake will be 15 very soon and will be attaining his learner?s permit, then we would go ahead and keep the car for him with the understanding that Jake would do a lot of the wrenching on the car himself with guidance from yours truly. He jumped at the idea!
So, here we are, Jake will be 15 in less than two weeks and we were wondering what to get him for his birthday and, for me, anyways, the answer was simple, new tools of his own just like my father got for me when I got my first car at 15 years of age. A trip to Sears and I was faced with a very large selection of tool sets many of which contained a lot of tools Jake won?t need right off and that I already have in my tool chest.
After some poking around I spotted a sale sign for the Craftsman 200 pc. Mechanics Tool Set with Molded Carry Case (39115) for $129.99, a savings of $70 off the regular price of $199.99. Now, at a dollar per tool it was already a pretty good deal despite the few Allen wrenches and driver bits but at $0.65 per tool it was a great deal so I walked up to the register and asked the nice lady if she had any left. She sold all three sets that day but she did order one up for me and had it shipped free to my house! Can?t ask for anything better than that!
This set contains a lot of sockets and, for us, that?s a good thing! We seem to need them more often than not when we are working on the Firebird. Removing the engine accessories (e.g. the alternator, power steering pump and brackets), removing the engine mount bolts and the bell housing bolts all need the use of sockets more so than wrenches so, like I said, the more the merrier! That doesn?t mean we can?t or won?t use the wrenches, by no means! What do you think we need to hold those nuts when loosening the accessory mounting hardware? Unfortunately there are only six smaller common sized combination wrenches included (3/8th 7/16th and ½? along with an 11, 12 and 13mm). It?s a good thing I have those as well. Later a companion wrench set, maybe for Christmas (yes, I said Christmas!).
Despite the wrench thing the whole set is a great set to build on but I guarantee you that the very first thing he?ll need even before wrenches is a better tool storage box! I?m not sure who it is that designs Craftsman plastic cases and tool boxes but they need to be fired! The case this set came in is great for shipping but stinks for storage! A metal three drawer Craftsman box will probably accompany this set if I have anything to say about it!
Still, for sixty five cents per tool?think about that for a second, sixty five cents for a ½ inch drive ratchet?how can we go wrong?!? Jake will have a great set to build on and the thing has a lifetime warranty! There is no downside to this deal, not for me or for Jake!
Thanks again Sears, you really came through for us yet again!
As mentioned in another review, there are many sockets and bits thrown in here for the sole purpose of creating a 200 piece tool set. For example, there are (7) sockets each for 3/8", 7/16", and 1/2". There are (6) sockets each for many other sizes. This wouldn't be too bothersome if they didn't omit some very useful tools.
There are only (10) 1/2" drive sockets. You may be thinking, "Well, you don't really need a 1/2 drive for most of the smaller size sockets." But, that's exactly what they provided it for! The 1/2" drive sockets are only for sizes 3/8" through 5/8" and 9 through 13mm. If you want to use larger sockets, you're stuck with the 3/8" drive. There's also no 1/2" drive to 3/8" socket converter.
It would also make sense to have the allen wrenches in a molded plastic holder with labeled slots for the various sizes rather than a zip lock bag. I know this adds to the cost, but I'll sacrifice a set of sockets for this.
The case design is lacking, as well. The crescent wrenches are supported for half of their length. So, they kind of just pivot on the edge when you open the compartment and some usually fall out of place. It's a really strange design that I don't understand. I guess it makes it easier to pull them out, but the same could've been accomplished by extending the plastic a bit further and then they wouldn't fall out every time. Once you put them back and close the locking flap, they stay in place, though. They also only give you 3 SAE and 3 metric crescent wrenches, so it's not that big of a deal anyways.
Overall, I don't think this a horrible product. I just wanted to point out what to expect for $99. There are better sets, but this will get many jobs done without breaking the bank.
Excellent product and great value for $99.99 on sale. Could not have been able to tackle my recent automobile struts replacement job without this set of tool.
Purchased this 200 piece set as was always needing another size that was not in my other 75 and 100 piece sets. Now I have one set that has the right sizes I need without going to the store to buy a piece I did not have. It has saved time and get my work done with out delays. I always buy Craftsman brand for the quality of the tools. When I break a rusted, 1/4 inch bolt off trying to replace a muffler, I know the tool is quality.
decent selection of 1/4 and 3/8 drive sockets in both 6 and 12 point not much for 1/2 inch drive at all so far sockets have held up good

The only thing bad about this is that the 1/2" drive sockets included are only the smaller sized ones. Usually if someone is using a 1/2" drive, they are removing larger nuts. But I got it on sale for only $99.00, so for that price it was a good deal.
Box was ripped open, could not count the items before I left the store. When I found out some sockets were missing, the store would not give me those. Once you leave the store, good luck. THERE ARE TWO HUNDRED PIECES to this set. how can I count and inventory them all
