I've done a lot of tool research over the past couple of weeks. However, I guess I haven't done enough.
Can anyone tell me what's so special about this set? I mean a 1/4 drive ratchet set for $50? My 150 piece set (made in the USA) has everything the 1/4 set has except a couple of deep sockets, the thin ratchet, and the 6 inch extension.
too bad these are chinese made craftsman tools. this is not a deal this is sears capitalizing on the ignorant.
well the one thing i can tell you is you can tell a difference in look of the craftsman stamped made in usa tools and the newest ones with no origin stamped made in china. these are defiantly "new old stock" 2000s quality sockets. They might not be 100% made in the USA like you said but do you have proof at all?
oh and since I'm so ignorant can you find me a 1/2 set with 16 deep 24 standard both sae and metric, 2 extensions and ratchet for 85 shipped? (i also got -5 and 20 dollars in points off my next sears purchase bringing it to a realistic 60 shipped)
Either some components are made in the U.S. and shipped to China for final assembly or components are made in China with finally assembly made in the U.S., both displaying the stamping “Made in the U.S.A.”
Will never really know the truth.
Bad as in the day when the Japanese were sending over Pick-up trucks without the bed, later assembling the bed on the truck in the U.S., and evading the tariffs.
Funny, Ford still evades the Chicken Tax tariffs by importing vehicles with seatbelts, then removing and trashing the belt once they're here in the states. How times have changed.
For a product to be labeled "made in USA" it had to be "all or virtually all" made here. Given that each piece in these sets are stamped USA, I'd say it's a fair bet you conspiracy theorists are wrong.
Previous thread plus pics from last year compared the the US-Craftsman thin-profile ratchets versus imported versions showed similar performance but difference in overall shape and finish. Grab the US versions while they last no matter the truth.
I got the 3/8" Thin-Profile set a while back and love it. Nice hefty ratchet. I just took the plunge on the Professional Use set for the 1/4" and 1/2" set. I do like the thin-profile ratchets though. Darn Sears for these sales.
