This was a front-page deal back in February at the same price.

Some say the Harbor Freight sets are better. I own both these and the Pittsburg set from Harbor Freight, but haven't used either enough to say which is better. They both seem decent just by look and feel, but with impact sockets, that's not a great way to measure. It's also true that the Craftsman Evolv brand is cheaper than regular Craftsman tools.

Anyway, don't mean to talk anyone out of these, as for the price, I still think they'd be hard to beat.

It's their cheaper brand. Which isn't encouraging considering craftsman stuff is made in China to begin with.

The harbor freight set is very gritty. The evolve set has a finish similar to the Tekton set which is highly rated. It is between the smoothness of the Craftsman sets and the Harbor Freight. The evolve sockets are made in Taiwan which maybe located in the same factory as the Tekton.

I have this set. It does its purpose and no complaints. Not used often or long term to talk about durability. Most issues I've had with low cost tools is the finish, smoothess, or precision...but regarding these points ok for the evolve set.

I'm game for a set of each. With Shop your way points and Sears card discount total was $27 and change. Can't really go wrong at that price.

It doesn't say what sizes are the metric set. Does anyone know what the sizes are for the metric ones?

$1.60 per socket is cheap, the problem is if you ever need any of the missing sizes, or 25mm+, you end up having to buy a more expensive master set anyways. And typically those master sets will have Cr-MO sockets as opposed to the Cr-V in these cheap sets.

If you ever see yourself wanting a more complete set in the future, might as well just skip this over entirely and it's like saving $16 on the newer kit. But if you just need something to pull a few lugs in the driveway this covers most of the commonly used sizes.

The Gearwrench 84935N 29pc deep set is a great entry level master set, 8-36mm with no skips in sizes. Obviously much more expensive than this, but Ebay flash sale coupons etc. can bring it below $100.

If you've ever shopped for a loose 20-36mm socket you know they can easily run $10-$15 each.

Well 16mm is 5/8" and 23mm is close enough to 7/8" so you are generally covered.

Been looking for a relatively inexpensive set (they won't get much use). Had some SYW rewards points to, so got both sets for ~$23 with in store pickup. Thanks OP!
