Thread Details

I bought this set a couple months ago when it was $118 and posted it on SD, and now it's $99. It's currently in their snail mail circular, and on their website I see sets available in all my nearby Lowe's. Item #573356.

Unlike this Taiwanese-made set, most Kobalt tool sets are made in China and may be of lesser quality. This also comes with a nice case, unlike many Kobalt tool sets that come in a cardboard box.

Pros:
200 pieces of Taiwanese tools
Nice case with good handle and hinges
Good price

Cons:
Case, when open or shut is huge
Like all sets, you won't use most of the pieces
Has some 3/8" drive driver bits but no 3/8" driver (and no upsizing adapter from 1/4")
No upsizing/downsizing adapters (e.g. 1/2" -> 3/8" or 1/4" -> 3/8")
Many sockets are 12-points, not 6-point

Basically, this case has many of the same advantages and disadvantages of any large set (vs. building your collection with individual pieces or with individual, smaller sets).

I prefer kobalt tools to husky. husky is made in china, kobalt tawain. tawain is much better quality than China when it comes to tools.

I have this set. got it for $75+tax last year. I'm a weekend home mechanic and this has all the tools i need plus more, including deep wall sockets and wrench. I went from a craftsman 42-piece homeowner set to this. I'd say it's worth the $100 bill you'll be paying.

Many if not most Kobalt hand tools are actually made in China. That's why I was interested in this Kobalt set as it is made in Taiwan.
