Good find, they also have the 210 piece for $89.00, although it looks like they just added more screw driver adapters and some sort of alan wrench style attachment for the ratchets.

Anyone have any experience with Stanley tools? Just a once-in-a-while mechanic here. Curious if these will hold up to some slight abuse. Especially the ratchets or wrenches stripping.

I had a set of stanley screw drivers that didn't hold up well. The hardened tips broke off of a couple of the flat heads.

Dewalt is owned by Stanley Black & Decker.

Not much of a difference when it comes to hand tools.

I have some Stanley sockets and they are OK. the ratchets are decent, with less slop than the current Craftsmans. That being said, these kits are usually their lowest quality tools. I would rank the mid level Harbor Freight stuff higher than this kit. I have a set that is almost identical in look and construction that I bought to leave in a car that I paid about $20 for a few years back. IMO, this is not a deal at $70.

I have one Stanley ratchet and socket set. It's held up fine over the past few years. I actually like that ratchet a little better than my Kobalt ones.

All the sockets here are 6 pt. Those are better than 12 pt when it comes to heavy work. Though I've never stripped a bolt using a 12 pt socket, either.

I can't find anything on the number of teeth on the ratchets. They look like mine, though. Mine is 72 teeth for a 5* arc, which I'd call the standard these days. I have a HF ratchet that's 36 teeth, and in close quarters it barely moves the socket. Plus it's really loud and has a really tall circular head. My Kobalt ones are pear shaped but really thick.

The value of this set is if you really don't have many tools at all. Eventually one might need a full set of pliers, screwdrivers, or wrenches. This may be enough to get one through occasional use.

Looks like a great deal.

However, this sorts of sets really should come with an extra 10mm socket or two. Wink

Edit: worth noting - this set doesn't include a hammer.

The description given here is for the 210 piece set, not the 170. It's Amazon's fault really, since Amazon shows the 210 piece description for both sets, but they also show the 170 piece description below on the 170 piece page.

Just look at the number of wrenches. The 210 piece has 4 each of Metric and SAE. The 170 piece (picture shown) has 6 each of Metric and SAE wrenches.

I do think the 170 looks like a good set. The biggest downside is all the 12 point sockets instead of 6 point.

This seems like a great deal. I almost bought a Crescent set for $75 a week or two ago. I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger because this is almost the same set but it's less expensive. Thanks for positing!

I have a similar set but haven't used it much so I can't comment on the durability. So far so good, but one REALLY annoying thing is the items I use most, the bits, are almost impossible to remove from the case. I don't know why they design them this way. They are in rubber/plastic "racks" pointing straight up with little in the way of finger holes or gaps on the edges or ends to pull them up. If you want a bit on one of the middle racks, you have to take out multiple racks. You can't simply pull out a bit without pulling out an entire rack.

Also not sure what the point of including individual drivers is. All one needs is a standard driver with a bit adapter on the end.

At first I thought using space for a tape measure is dumb but the more I think about it, I like it. Not having to carry or put in your pocket a tape measure (or forget to and have to go back for it) is a great feature.

I love channel lock pliers so that is a nice feature. Needle nose pliers are also handy.

Finally, one of the most important aspects of a tool set like this is, IMO, the hinges on the case. Not sure how these are but I have had cases where the hinges are not well made and break, thus rendering the ease of portability useless. The hinge on my Stanley case is made of thin plastic so I don't have high hopes for its durability. Not sure about this one.

The biggest pet peeve I have with Stanley (particularly their socket sets) is that the sockets are impossible to get in and out of the provided tool cases. You literally need a screwdriver to pry them out and then have to give them a good whack back in.

If you buy this expect to throw away the plastic POS case.
