Is this a good price for this type of tool set?

I see that historically the lowest was 89.99

I bought a similar set from Sears for $150 on sale. This looks like a great price. Only issue is they don't list the amount of everything and the sizes. I assume there will be some duplicates

That actually looks like a pretty decent entry level set. Looks like it has all of the common socket sizes and they are in 6 point as well. - those are less likely to round off fastener heads than 12 points.

Lacking some in the wrenches though.

I have no idea how the quality of the ratchets are. I've never owned anything in this brand before.

I don't know about this one. How would you go about a warranty with the ratchets? I would choose the Lowes ratchet sets over these or the Craftsman. A tip you do not need a tool set like this to do any amount of work on any car. You need a simple 3/8 ratchet set with 6pt sockets from 10-19mm, a 1/2 drive ratchet with maybe 22mm & 24mm and a 1/4" drive ratchet with 6mm, 8mm sometimes 6.5mm, 7mm and 7.5 also need some extensions and swivels. I have done a large amount of work from simple things like gaskets to complete LS engine rebuilds and I can tell you the only thing 12 point sockets are good for is rounding fasteners. There are a few 12pt fasteners like head and cam retainer bolts but those do not justify a full set.

A breaker bar is nice too, especially if you live somewhere that uses salt.

How would warranty issues be resolved on a set like this?

Craftsman or Lowes house brand I can just go to the store and swap the tool but that wouldn't be possible at Wal-Mart, would it?

I'd have to mail it to the manufacturer?

Not that I'm going to buy this; I was just curious.

Listen to this guy, he knows what he's talking about and makes a number of excellent points starting with the biggest issue: warranty replacement. You can walk into a Sears (KMART too I think) or a Lowes and swap out your broken ratchet etc. in minutes, speaking from experience.

This too, along with a length of pipe to slip over a wrench etc (use your head with this approach). I have yet to break my 1/2" or 3/8" Harbor Freight breaker bars, which cost very little when on sale combined with 20% coupon. Actually, I've only managed to break one HF 3/8" wobble extension, and I think I had to put my ass hat on and use an impact wrench to pull that off, iirc.

most hand tools are warranty'd thru Harbor Freight as well. can't beat that consideering their prices. this set looks like so much bang for the buck that even if they're not warranty'd seems like a bargain.

just found this. i just wonder if there is a store that you can physically return to instead of paying shipping. a lot of stores carry Stanley too.
