To those that complain about where the socket is made. It is made by ARMSTRONG, Craftsman has never "tooled" their own tools. They have always been made by a distributor such as Armstrong. When you call the number that is included in the packing list, it connects you straight to an Armstrong rep. So Craftsman is literally an Armstrong tool at a fraction of the price. With that said, the 1/4 inch drive set works flawlessly and is great for small fasteners, or fasteners where not a great deal of torque is needed. The fit and finish rival any of the more big box brands but it doesn't cost any where near what the competitors cost. The only thing that could have been better was if the socket holder was of a more rigid design. it works ok for the 1/4 inch drive, but still the plastic is a little flimsy. Basically it is made to get it out of the box it is packaged in and set into a drawer and from there just take out the sockets and stuff you need.
I picked this up a while back and have been very happy with it. The ratchet they included in mine had upwards of 60 sum teeth and works perfectly to get in the small spaces you use 1/4th inch for!
I bought my set when it was on sale for $50. The shipping was very fast. I inspected the set in full detail. The ratchet and extensions I don't use beacuse I have Snap On tools. I've put alot of pressure on the sockets and have had no issues with the way they function or the chrome finish. Had to drill out the center hole on the 9/16 deep socket a little to get it to fit on my socket rack that I got from Northern Tool. I highly recommend this set. But if you are a professional Tech. Use a better 1/4 inch ratchet.
I bought this set along with the 1/2" and 3/8" sets. This and the 1/2" set that I got were made in CHINA - sockets and ratchet. The 3/8" set was the only one made in USA, which makes sense since the 3/8" set is the most commonly used set. Ratchet was a good feeling - comes with a lot of sockets (always a plus). A much better feeling vs the standard ratchet - however mine came scratched. Also the leaver to switch directions was very stiff / hard to switch. I guess reason why it is made in CHINA. Overall it is a good set, dock a star for having them made in CHINA.
I just bought this tool set and was very disappointed to find it is now entirely made in China. I only looked the tools over quickly before deciding to return them for a full refund. Even with that quick look over, I noticed that the sockets have a wall that is at least twice as thick as the recent US made sockets. That really limits the usefulness of the Chinese made sockets. I think it?s worth it to step up a bit in price and buy a US made set from SK hand tools, JH Williams tool group, or Wright tool. I have similar sets from these makers and they all deliver quality and usefulness that is superior to this Chinese made set of Craftsman tools.
Very good quality. It's what I would expect from Craftsman. Good value, as well. Get the magnetic socket holders from Lisle and you can stick them to your tool chest.
This was a great deal. The ratchet is fairly fine-toothed (much smoother than my clunker I was using before). It comes with a very good range of sockets. I work at a GM dealership, and this set has pretty well all the 1/4" sockets I regularly need.
