Sears now has a Midnight Madness sale happening (Live now) that offers another 5%-15% off until 7 AM CT tomorrow.
I picked up the GearWrench 20PC Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set, SAE/MM, great reviews and normally $99.
The sale price was $59, then the Midnight Madness sale brought it down to $50.99.
The 5000 points they sent to use by tomorrow took another $5 off.
FWIW, Costco has a killer Crecent brand tool set for ~$78.
Bought one for work. 1/4, 3/8, 1/2" drive. Very nice quality too. Case is a bit large but after 2 years, and at work even, we have yet to lose any of the pieces.
Yeah, it looks like they're cleaning the stuff out of the warehouse pretty good. Maybe you should hold onto those sets, they could become collector's items.
now i am thankful that the store wouldn't take them back b/c they aren't in-stock items. sears says they will email me shipping labels to return them. now i am thinking of calling them and telling them i've changed my mind and would like to keep everything.
seems like Craftsman will be sending everything to China or just completely discontinuing the professional/industrial socket sets all together in favor of the Evolv (crapvolv as i call it) or the bulk mechanic sets of which the quality is definitely inferior.
i compared the sockets of the industrial sets to the 154 set and the inside of the sockets are much different. the industrial sets the inside is very smooth and the 154 mechanics sets the socket inside is very rough and coarse. not sure if that will affect performance, but it's clear that extra effort was put into the industrial sets. the ratchets seem identical except for the "industrial" stamping though.
i made a neat little Excel sheet comparing:
192pc mechanics set
154pc mechanics set
82pc industrial socket set
65pc industrial socket set
feel free to add additional sets on for comparison. it's hard to compare them all since in many cases it's an apples to oranges comparison. i found that the 154pc set was the best overall, and it came with mostly 6pt sockets. as a FYI, these prices are from the other week, and don't reflect the current pricing (it's a moot point since they're sold out of the industrial ones anyways...)
I am trying to replace my exterior car door handle, looking at you tube. I need a 10mm socket with ratchet and extension as per the video. Please help, i am really naive at these tools, but always interested in home use tool sets...thanks in advance
