Craftsman 5 pc. Gauge Set

From motorcycles and classic muscle cars to lawn mowers and weed destroyers, these tools make it so much easier to keep things running right!

I decided that this set was just about perfect for the kinds of work I do around here. We restore classic cars (mostly Mustangs) so setting the gap on spark plugs is only one little part of what we need to do. Setting the valve lash or the correct rod gap on a crankshaft and, believe it or not, I also use them to set the rip fence on my table saw!

A great set at a pretty good price (as compared to individual pieces) that will help the average backyard mechanic/hobbyist at the correct distance from just about anything!

Just to let you know, I always check my feeler gauges and other preset thickness or gap setting tools with a micrometer and these were all dead-on accurate! Again, for the money I'd figure the tolerance's my be a touch off, but no! Good going Craftsman!

Honestly, for $20 you can go buy lunch for two at some fast food place and then suffer the weight gain all the while you listen to your valves getting hammered by the rockers or buy this set and quiet them jokers down! Your choice!

Surprised and Disappointed at the same time
Ordered the set online and expected to get what was pictured to include the ?Made in the USA? on every piece. I am sad to report that all three feeler gauges do not have the ?Made in the USA? on them and country of origin is not stamped on it. I do suspect they are probably Taiwan or China sourced. The set did arrive in a nice rolled up slotted canvas carrying pouch which was not advertised as being included. So in that essence, it was a nice plus. As to all the gauges themselves, the do seem to be of acceptable quality and will probably last the lifetime of my use. I did spot check a couple of feeler leafs with a digital micrometer, and all were spot on. Over all for the price paid, it is still a value but somewhat let down by another outsourcing of a previously USA made tools to another country.

excellent set with nice folding pouch-3 items were not marked USA

ordered online-took back to sears and gauges on shelf were USA made but not stamped as such just like mine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

High Quality Set with some components Made in the USA

This set comes with approx 50/50 mix of components that are made in the USA but don't let that dissuade your purchase. Each component is high quality and should easily last one or two lifetimes of handing down if properly cared for. The storage pouch is a nice touch since these items have always been a pain for me to store. The remaining non marked components are hard to determine the country of origin but it appears they were produced with strict quality standards so I suspect they may be German made and that would be good since German companies are known to produce some of the highest quality tools in the world. Just wish Sears made it easier for consumers to locate this information for customers like myself that care. Global components does not satisfy my need to know! I couldn't pass this up for the price. Truck prices are easily $200 for the same items of the same quality.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Made in USA

Just to set the record straight, these Gauge Set Blades are made from precision German steel. The steel is shipped to the USA where it is cut into blades, laser marked with size info, and assembled into the USA made handle. Because of content laws it can not say Made in USA on the product. The same company has been in business for over 80 years.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great selection of gauges good price

This set has a great selection of gauges at a good price. Value handy for automotive work. My gauges weren't made in USA which was a slight disappointment for me.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 5 pc. Thickness and Spark Plug Gauge Set

I recieved this set as a gift for Christmas 2010. This set has everything you need to perform virtually all automotive, industrial, small engine, and other gapping operations. The spark plug gauges are still fully Made in the USA, although the feeler gauges are now Made in the USA from domestic and foriegn components, and the vinyl roll up pouch is "probably" imported (it no longer says Made in the USA on the pouch itself like the picture in the catalog shows). Other than that the pieces look exactly the same and are the same quality as in the catalog photo.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
