Product Description

263-Pc Mechanics Tool Set Provides a Staggering, Stunning Variety

The Craftsman 263-pc mechanics tool set is the only tool set that you need to complete any and every mechanical job.

The set features metric, standard, inch and deep well sockets made for three ratchet sizes. No matter what the job is, you have the tools that you need.

The range of sizes and tools in this kit gives you the freedom that you need to work in large spaces as well as small, restrictive places.

Ratcheting Wrenches, Oh Yeah!
This set is all you need for sockets and wrenches. All sizes, 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2". Standard & metric. The best difference between this and the 255 piece set is the ratcheting wrenches. Also, this tool box has individual holders for the wrenches under the flip top, rather than just a drawer where they just lay together. Assortment of torx bits, hex head and miniature wrenches too.

Dont let the tool count fool you
There are a great deal of items in this set but the numbers are inflated by the small wrenches you would rarely use. The amount of 1/2 drive sockets is limited with the largest size being 20mm. The set was marketed as great for medium duty car work but I couldn't even change my brakes with the tools provided. You will definitely need to supplement this set with larger sockets (1/2 drive) but if you are doing LIGHT work this should be more than sufficient. Always be wary of the tool counts in these packages and look carefully to see what you're getting. Pay close attention to the max and minimum size of the sockets for each driver especially if you will be doing car work. There are some things a 3/8" drive just can't do when it comes to the larger bolts.

Extremely Pleased!

Exceptional value and exceptional quality. If these tools were purchased separately, the cost would be well over $500.00. Every tool is MADE IN THE USA! If you are a tool nut, like am, you will love this Craftsman quality set, I promise!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Price & Travels

The self storage is the reason I bought it. Otherwise the boys take out a bucket full of tools and carry t to there project, then the bucket gets set in front of the tool box and never gets put away. This way the box goes with them and they can put them away as they use them.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 263 pc Mechanics tool set

Product seems to be of good quality and material just like all of my craftsman tools. The wrenches are great and ratchets seem to hold up through some heavy work. I've used craftsman tools since I was 5 years old and 35 years later I still go to craftsman for quality tools with a great guarantee against defects and breakage. I will continue to buy craftsman for years to come.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Why I love Christmas time at Sears!

Christmas time is when they bring out the big sets of tools you can't find the rest of the year! Lots of tools for the price and a great carrying case too!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Tool Set

This was an amazing purchase. As an avid snowmobile rider, I needed a complete tool set to keep in my trailer for repairs and maintenance. Not only was this almost complete with what I need, it came in a rugged plastic case and is backed by Craftsman lifetime warranty. I'm very glad I purchased this kit! It's something that I will add to in upcoming years.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Made In China

This set, for a weekend warrior mechanic like me, would me more than sufficient. I'm not upset about the tool selection or the fact that the tool count is inflated by useless stamped wrenches or allen key sets that everyone already has. I am upset by the fact that my grandpa gave me this set for Christmas and I didn't have the heart to tell him I'm returning it because 1) It is made in China, 2) The tools feel cheap and won't last as long as the rusty set my grandpa bought 40 years ago, 3) The case is junk and falls apart not to mention this "little" outfit is about 60 lbs. I own this product, but only for a few more days until I can find the receipt. Craftsman is another fine example of why this country has gotten in the mess that it's in.

great variety

While I have a lot of socket sets, I often misplace them in my garage or get frustrated looking in all the different boxes. Having a set like this with everything you could need in one place is one less frustration when working on an old car.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
