I know I posted this deal once already, but the mods made the other Expired since the coupon code is no longer valid. I asked if they could just un-Expire the deal, but they told me to just repost. So it's not *quite* as good as before, but still pretty good. So posting it again, just in case anyone missed it.

If anyone knows of any other coupon codes that will work with this sale item, please feel free to add it to the Wiki.

"...the metric sets are apparently listed incorrectly on the product page.
They are actually: 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 18mm"
---Thanks Jeff


Coupon code V4LDBX confirmed working to bring price down to $19.99. I'm not editing the OP/title this time though in case this coupon code expires, so the mods don't Expire it again. And don't forget to rep scottydog here for providing the code.

Agreed. On the other hand, the sizes that do come with this kit would be excellent for working on a motorcycle or even a bicycle.

Once you get into the larger sizes (including the 18mm that does come with this kit), the utility of having it in a stubby wrench size starts becoming questionable. You often need the extra mechanical advantage a full sized wrench provides.

I think the most important take-away from the previous discussion is that the sizes of the metric set are apparently listed incorrectly on the product page.

They are actually: 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 18mm

Losing the 17 and 19 is a pretty significant difference to those working on Japanese brands.

Added to Wiki... Thanks.

Also, I tried EVERY single code listed on the RetMeNot page... so no need to bother posting those codes. I *think* the code posted in the old thread may of just slipped through the cracks, but AAP finally caught on.

Good set, I've been shopping around for a while now and finally settled with this one.

if you torque an 18 mm bolt / nut with a stubby wrench you're going to have other issue.

Agreed - I've had this set for years, and I have several German cars that use a lot of 17mm. I haven't really missed it in this set, as you say the smaller sizes get a lot more use. Missing 19mm is no big deal, the SAE set has 3/4, and they are intechangable. (19mm = 0.748")

Yep -- I require 17 and 19.

I'm sure most people know about the Honey extension for Chrome, but that would have automatically done that for you.

the problem i have with owning an older Jeep, is that half of my engine is metric, and the other sae. I cannot finish any job without both.

I've been looking for a stubby set, but wondering if its worth waiting for a more comprehensive set, or buy one of each of the sae/metrics
