Product Description

51-Pc Max Axess Mechanics Tool Set Gives You the Power You Need

Give yourself the torque you need for a lifetime with the Craftsman 51-pc Max Axess mechanics tool set. These alloy steel pieces are rated more highly for strength than the most popular ratchet in the Craftsman line, and extension bars give you increased reach in tight spaces. The set's ultra thin profile and pass-through design let it slip easily over long bolts, meaning you won't have to carry a set of deep sockets. Despite the lean design, the ratchet is well balanced and turns easily.

With dozens of sockets, the 51-pc Max Axess mechanics tool set is not just a first set for beginners. It gives even experienced professionals the variety they'll need for most days on the job. The sturdy case makes it a great auto or on-the-go kit.

  • The Craftsman 51-pc Max Axess mechanics tool set includes dozens of the most popular sockets, along with a ratchet with a rare combination of strength and low profile
  • The set comes with 42 sockets in standard from 5/32 to 13/16 and metric from 3.5 to 19 mm
  • It also includes a hollow shaft handle, three standard socket adapters, two extensions, two Go-Thru ratchets and a Go-Thru adapter
  • The tools are alloy steel with a chrome finish
  • The ultra-thin design fits over long bolts
  • Adapts to all standard socket sets
  • The ratchet is 45 percent stronger than the most popular Craftsman ratchet
  • Comes in a briefcase-style carrying case
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Content Listing Includes:
  • 10 - 1/4" Drive Inch Max Axess Sockets (5/32, 3/16, 7/32, 1/4, 9/32, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16")
  • 13 - 1/4" Drive Metric Max Axess Sockets (3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 MM)

Not a Replacement for Ratcheting Wrenches
Let's get the bad out of the way: Growing up, Craftsman Tools were synonymous with "Made in America". That has become rare. The set I have was made in China. The shape of the oblong shape of the ratchet handle can be painful when trying to break something loose. It's better than traditional craftsman ratchets but not as good as the rounded handles from some other manufacturers. With the socket in the ratchet they are thicker than a ratcheting wrench and only a bit thinner than a normal socket and ratchet. There isn't a 1/2" ratchet available or any sockets larger than 19 mm or 3/4". With that said, the good: The set is complete with every conventional socket one would need to work on cars from 3.5 mm to 19 mm and from 5/32" to 7/8". The ratchet action is 5 degrees. Better than traditional ratchets (> 7 degrees) but not as good as fine toothed ones from other manufacturers (3.5 degrees.) The set includes adapters to use traditional sockets. I would really want to rate this set as 3.5 stars. It's better than 3 stars but it doesn't get 4.

Great space saver.

Great space saver because of the thru-access of the socket design. Keep it inside the house and it eliminates the need for 1/4" deep/standard sockets. I wouldn't rely on this to replace anything in my tool bag or job boxes, but for a set to have around the house, it's perfect.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lower BUT wider

When I first saw it, I thought this line was just a gimmick, however, it is one of those tools that has its place if you have the extra cash. This set comes with 1/4" and 3/8" square socket adapters to make it compatible with additional traditional sockets. It also has the screw driver style driver which many traditional ratchet sets do not include (I find them very helpful for hand tightening during reassembly). Max Axess is not much better than a traditional ratchet set. Mostly, it is just different. It fits in places where another ratchet might not and vice versa. The 3/8" equivalent ratchet has a lower profile than my traditional 3/8" ratchets which came in handly on a project yesterday in which the traditional ratchets had a very limited range of motion because of an obstruction. On the other hand, the head is wider than the traditional ratchets which means that there are other tight spaces in which Max Axess would not fit. I have yet to need the pass through feature; experience tells me it will not be handy terribly often for my car usage. I really like how the lower profile should direct the torque more in the intended direction. Traditional ratchets place the fulcrum further away from the fastener which is amplified by extensions and deep sockets. Sometimes the torque gets redirected enough to twist the socket off the fastener which can strip the fastener. The bottom line: this tool is helpful to have in your arsenal of different styles of the same tool that help you in those odd situations that arise in tight spaces (get it on sale). If you need a first ratchet set, this one would work for you but don't bother paying much more for Max Axess than a traditional set as it is only marginally better.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Was Skeptical

Being a lifelong buyer of Craftsman tools, I was quite apprehensive about even considering this "Made In China" set when I saw it at my local Green Bay Sears store. With the excellent return policy, I decided to purchase it on sale. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of both the ratchet handles and the sockets. One would only hope that Sears would not affix their Craftsman label to an inferior product. I have a couple of projects to complete this fall, so I will let you know how these tools hold up to the job. L.Zeleznik

Max Axess Socket Set

Nice range of 1/4" and 3/8" sockets for light to medium duty projects. All in one case is a bonus, carry one case to the project and you'll have a good selection of sockets at hand. Not for heavy duty projects.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great set.

Great set to start with. Unlike my previous set that had a 3/8 and 1/2 ratchet - which forced me to use a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter to use the smaller sockets, this one starts off on the smaller side - 1/4" and 3/8" ratchet for most jobs a home owner will come across. I just wish the Max Axess to square adapter inserted from the bottom of the ratchet (like the sockets) instead of the top. Put any downward pressure (like most of us do when loosening / tightening a nut / bolt) and it slips off. The DO make a 3/8" square adapter that inserts from the bottom - but it's from the mfg of this set, part of a male / female adapter set, and originally intended for tap & die set.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

51 - Piece Max Axess Chrome - Plated Steel Mechanics Tool Set

This tool set is awesome! It's what you'd expect from Craftsman Quality! The tools feel extra heavy and tough! They worked perfectly when changing my brakes and rotors! I even had to pound the ratchet with a hammer and it didn't even get a scratch on it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
