There were several Sears deals posted over the weekend but I did not see this. I've been periodically checking this set for a while and this is the lowest price I've seen. I had $25 in surprise points with $100 minimum so I grabbed a few other deals to make it even better.

This is my first post and I hope it's a good deal for those interested!

Not sure what you are trying to express here, but you do know there is big difference between "Made in China" and "Made in Taiwan" right?

I have a few of the regular ratchets that were "Made in USA" shortly before manufacturing went to Asia. They are awful, even worse than the foreign made ones. It's true that the Craftsman name has lost pretty much any meaning when it comes to quality, but there is a lot more to it than just sending the assembly overseas.

I have one of these in 1/4" drive [sears.com]and it's a pretty decent ratchet. It's on sale for under $10 right now, which is a no brainer price. It's not Snapon quality, but it works better than the standard ratchets and the price point is about right for a serious shade tree mechanic. Since I use the 1/4" drive 75% of the time, I'd recommend it by itself. I like to keep a 10mm deep socket on a 1/4" drive ratchet all the time since that is what like 60% of the fasteners on a typical car need.

The 3/8" version [sears.com] is also pretty cheap at $12. I'd rather have the long handled 3/8" ratchets, especially the type with a flex joint. I keep one ofthese [sears.com] in both cars and reach for this one [sears.com]when I'm at home. When paired with a 10" extenssion bar it makes getting bolts off fast, and the plastic handle makes beating off stuck bolts much less painful. A ratchet like this is awesome, but mine are from before Craftsman sold out.

Now that I look at it, the individuals units cost less than the set. $37.17 for all 3. But if I didn't already have enough ratchets I'd buy mostly 1/4" drive. I can't see the need for a 1/2" drive ratchet made so thin and with a tooth count this fine.

Not disputing anything in the prior post but I just wanted to point out that the 1/4" and 3/8" linked above are 75T vs. 84T. I can't speak to the practical difference between them but this set seemed pretty reasonable for the price. Interesting point regarding the 1/2" drive and the tooth count. I'll see how it performs under stress.

That's a 75 tooth ratchet, the ones in the post are 84 tooth.

The 84T ratchets that were made in the USA are awesome.
They sell for well above what they sold for new on eBay now.
