Great diagnostic tool
The Craftsman Compression Test Kit is a great diagnostic tool and has a pretty decent price point to boot. The kit comes with four extention hoses, one metric adapter, two small engine adapters, one quick release air hose adapter, blow mold case to house the kit, and a field service kit, should you run into a problem while using the kit on the job. The Craftsman compression Test Kit can do both, wet and dry compression tests. The Craftsman Compression Tests Kit comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty if the unit is defective in workmanship or has faulty parts & will be replaced as long as there is no abuse of the product. I have a small engine repair shop and this test kit is perfect for my shop. I use it to test compression on many type of small engines and it is easy to use and read. I record my test results and check the service manual of the engine that I am working on to ensure the readings are within acceptable tolerances. This information is invaluable when making a repair decision or to advise my customer of what I found, prior to tearing down a engine. Kind of gives me an idea of what to tell the customer, that I suspect we may run into and have valuable data to back up my diagnosis. The guage is extremely easy to read and has large enough numbers to get an accurate reading, without having to guess if I counted the all of the little lines. The guage also has a rubber booted head to help protect the guage for accidental mishaps. The field service kit has O-rings and check valves to do infield repairs, if needed. There is a an instruction booklet that comes with the Craftsman Compression Test Kit and is pretty easy to understand. I place a small note pad inside the case with the instruction booklet, so that I have something to write down my readings right there while I am testing. I don't put a pen in the case, because I always carry a pen in my work shirt. I am confident that if I take care of this valuable test kit, it will last me a long time and I know I will get my money back out of using this test kit, too. If you have a need for diagnosing compression readings on a engine, both big and small, then I would recommend this Compression test kit for your shop or tool box. Take care of it and it will take care of you, like my grampa used to always say. He was a diehard Craftsman fan too. I don't think he owned a tool, that wasn't Craftsman.

not good for years of service
Had this compression tester for about 3 years and did not use it more than maybe 15 times in that time. I used today and when I hand tighten it in a spark plug tube. I tried to loosen it and the hose just spun and it would not loosen. Shortly after that the hose spun right off the end, leaving it threaded about 4 inches deep with no way to get it out. It took me 3 hours and a number of tools to retrieve it. I would not buy this Item!!!!

very nice set

This has everything you need for any engine other than diesel or extremely high racing engines. I used it for my jet ski engines and it is very precise. Well made from what I can tell so far.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice little set

It is a nice little set to have. It might be priced a little high but if you catch a good sale, it is something nice to have in the tool box. It works, but I can't verify that is 100 percent accurate. However, it is pretty close if it isn't right on the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice set for a good price

Just as good if not better than Snap On's offerings, for a good price, especially if you can snag it on sale. Had the size I needed for my Corvette and that was plenty enough to make me happy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Product

Had a cheap loan a tool pressure gauge and then go this one, this one gave an accurate reading on psi. This is a well calibrated gauge on the compression tester at a great price. I would buy this to check your compression and not waste your time with cheap junk like I did.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
