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 tool set has the variety that all mechanics dream of having, and it is also intended to help individuals work faster and more efficiently. 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.

Great deal

Great online deal. my brother owns this set. I bought one as a birthday gift to a friend with no tools at all. The set comes with everything a shade tree mechanic might use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This tool set is a great value for the cost. My husband primarily uses Craftsman tools because of the guarantee and he has never been disappointed.

Great tool set

This toolbox has it all in one place. What a great addition to any shop or for your trunk to take with you anywhere. This was one of the black Friday specials and we got a creep seat with it. Even without the bonus gift, this is a great set. I recommend it for anyone on your list that works on cars, around the house, or for work. Craftsman tools are the best.

263 craftman tool set

I am very pleased with the tools. However the carry case will pop open while carrying and your tools will drop out.

a very nice gift set

We liked the set very much. We opened it the same day we bought it and found two tiny metric sockets missing. We called a toll free number listed in the paperwork, and the manufacturer sent right out the two sockets. So, very happy with the customer service too!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not too bad

I agree with several of the post that indicate that many of the pieces are found in the bit drivers which is slightly annoying. But as for completeness in tool sets of this price range it is probably the best.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Real nice tool set

When I got this set I was debating between this the 263 piece and another set the Craftsman 309 piece set. I am very happy I went with this set. The 309 didn't come with a box which was the biggest deal breaker. I was going to lose pieces without the box. I think the 263 will work for me in most cases. I am sure that every now and then I will need a larger size of sockets, but that is bound to happen.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
