Really disappointed
I used to buy cheap ************* tools but they break and come with very few in the box. I decided to upgrade and shall out there 1200bucks for this kit. I told the sales guy that I was tired of sets that skipsizes and are not complete, he assured me this kit is not like that. Which is not true at all. While you get a lot more in this kit you also miss and skip alot more sizes. But first ill start from the beginning.1 Opening the box, this has got to be the worse packaged item out there and I'm not exaggerating one bit. They may have will just thrown all the tools in the box. There is a few dozen bags of tools, I no particular order, rhyme or reason. You'll have seven 12pt sockets and one 6 pt in a bag. So unpacking will be an all day affair and you better have organizers becuase this set doesn't help you there. 2 MAKE SURE YOU CHECK YOUR TOOLS! The sales guy even said that. I am 2 hours in and about two thirds done and already I have duplicate or missing tools.I feel I got ripped off

Read This Before Purchasing This Item
Let me begin by stating the quality of the tools is excellent. The problem...the sockets are mixed and matched. When I buy a set of tools, I expect them to be uniform. Do you expect all 4 wheels on a new vehicle to match? Can't get customer service to do anything.

540 Mechanical Tool Set

We love the assortment of tools in the kit and the size of the container. Makes it easy to stow in the vehicles and know we will have what we need when we need it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Near perfect

Every tool I received was USA made.My only complaints are that the packaging is very poor and that you are going to be missing parts. That said calling the number on the PDF after figuring out what was missing I was greeted with a very friendly woman from my own country that promptly shipped my missing parts to me.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

What a set of tools!!! This set will fill the old tool box and then some!!

I have always bought craftsman tools. A good quality of tool. Best part is if you break it, Sears will replace it!!! With my job we had to travel and you can always find a Sears or one of its affiliates! I would have hated to try and find the Snap-on man is some of these places!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Comprehensive Set

This set is comprehensive. It has an extremely wide range of styles and sizes for wrenches and sockets. The wrenches include USA made ratcheting wrenches (as of Dec '13) which are extremely nice. It also comes with a large set of screwdrivers, and nut drivers. While I am not a professional mechanic, I grew up around heavy machinery mechanics and am active with building and tinkering with a wide range of projects. I tinker with everything from old vehicles to high power electronics (operating at 10kw+) and appreciate the range of tools offered by this kit and its quality.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very nice!

I have been wanting a good tool set to replace my hodge podge collection of cheap, mix and match tools. Decided to stop in my local Sears, just to look. This set was on sale for 30% off. Too good of a deal to pass up, so I bit the bullet and got it. Also, picked up a nice top and middle box, and bottom chest, also 30% off. I am not a professional mechanic, just a weekend warrior who happens to have a street & strip car. This set appears to have almost everything I need. I don't use air tools, already have two Craftsman torque wrenches and an inexpensive tap & die set. I did purchase some additional pliers and vice grips. I inventoried everything and nothing was missing, nor were there any duplicates. I was pleasantly surprised. I have never owned Snap-On, Mac, Matco, or any other professional grade tools, so I can't say these are or are not as good as those. However, I can say that for someone like me, this is a great tool set.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
