You know I said to my self the same thing until I opened it & twisted the ratchet It was better action than a New craftsman .

I have found some really junk ones like the "Winn Dixie: drill bits that melted in the chuck

$175 .worth not taking my Snap on sockets outta their draws {& out of place} {I guess Mikey don't love me no more}

A trip to sears or HF what is the Diff? I am going to bust one just to see how their return policy works

It has E torx & up to T~ 70 torx! for what I am using it for it Will be just OK {i hope} I got 30 days to beat it up!

I wish the wrenches went up to bigger sizes thou.


If I had kids this would be a good starter kit.

I'll be back with a report

Heeeey- that set looks pretty good. I have the 155 piece Craftsman set in the plastic case, with a set of screw drivers, torx bits, and maybe pliers in the extra space. It does most of the tasks that I go after (nothing too serious).
That one seems to have a good bit more usefull stuff in it. Ya can't beat a good portable tool kit, as long as the tools hold up and they don't fall out of place in the case.

Let us know what you think about 'em, once ya put 'em to use.

1st Report:

So far so good
on the + side

~ It has just about what you need to not have to walk back & forth Even E torx & T torx up to T 70

~ All the tools have a good feel to them the rachets are fine toothed & not sloppy the sockets have a good "ting" to them when tapped together ,

~I used a couple on my Snap~On Air ratchet & it did not break of blow the chrome off
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ On the - side the box is a bit of a PITA to open & close it has foam inserts between the segments that either have a static charge or go flying away into the breeze.

~I will have to do something Innovative with this,

~The little sockets & think I will cut the back of the plastic out & put some kind of magnet to hold them in there I have not done it yet but the potential for it to become a big mess fast is very real.

~I am not too crazy about the latches they will wear out relatively Quick I am sure

~ Its Heavy

So far so good a Very good organized bone yard set.

Thumbs up Stress tested update

Well I have been using this set for a while now I have used a 2 foot cheater pipe on the 1/2" sockets & my IR 231 double anvil impact .

Plus used my Snap On FAR72B & have not even chipped the chrome ...yet.

I am still trying!!







I did bust a #2 1/4" Phillips bit .

I also went to get a 11/16ths deep 3/8th to find there was 2 ~13/16ths so I went to HF & they fixed it right up.{gave me Xtras too.}

Oh & one more thing about 3 weeks after I got it I checked online & sure enuf it went down to $120.
Printed it out .
Went back with my Receipt & got to buy fiddy more dollars of stuff with the cash I got back.

gonna wait until it goes on sale again & buy a 2nd set!





Rob

Those HF tools are pretty tough aint they.I dont figure ill be purchacing many tools for a while though,I got a heck of a deal on some a while back(over 300 sockets some metric some standard mac snap on craftsman proto and others,ratchets(snapon,proto etc ),wrenches,screwdrivers,plumb bobs etc)they were rusty but the price was great,free, so a couple litres of coke later the sockets and wrenches cleaned up nicely still got a few screwdrivers to clean up and a bucket of tools/bolts that I gotta go through and pick out the tools I'll get and post a pic sometime if I can remember
