I'm a serious shade tree mechanic and this tool set is my in-car tool kit. The pros: Ratcheting wrenches, lots of sockets in 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch drives and value for money, both metric and SAE sockets and wrenches. The cons: mini wrenches are stamped and not cast steel, Torx bits for 1/2 inch drive (why is that necessary in a starter kit when 3/8" drive has them?), no thumb drive sockets, no slots for other wrenches and lots of empty space in the box make it less than ideal to expand your set, not all sizes needed in wrenches so have to purchase a few extra
Very nicely organized set. Always nice to be able to Cary what you need with you to the car you are working on and not have to go back and fourth to get more tools. 6 point and 12 point is the way to go!
It has all the necessary tools for the home mechanic or starter set for a beginning professional. The box is built tough to handle the weight of the tools. The easy slide out trays with compartments keep all the tools in their proper place even if the box is turned upside down. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that works on their own cars.
I bought this set for my husband for Fathers Day. We have a place upnorth and he kept taking tools back and forth. He only buys Craftsman tools. He was awed by the new set.
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.
