Expensive as hell. I'd rather buy China/Taiwan made tools and be happy that I can still put food on the table and gas in the tank.

I even agree. A nut doesn't give a dang what brand socket, wrench etc you use. It's a piece of mind. Working remote I depend on quality tools. As do many others that rely on quality, dependable tools to get the job done. Everyone has they're own budget and for most these are over budget. Some of us, this will fit the bill perfectly.


No gas in a tank here. I prefer my fuel like my tools, diesel, and expensive.

thx. checked a few things and they're cheaper than amazon.

There's other frames of thought on good tools. One if you buy a good set of screw drivers
they'll last you a lifetime because i can promise you're not using them as chisels, leaving them outside, whereas every time i used to buy cheap ones they wouldn't last me long as i'd be like oh wtf they're only couple bucks. Then the next time i needed them i'd be sol

If you're a professional, the cost is pretty minimal, it's an investment in your career let's put it in perspective, are you hiring the dude to pressure wash with a $250 home depot pressure washer that will take him all day or are you hiring the guy with the diesel kohler. Don't answer because i see those guys hiring the ones that take all day, while the truck mount guy is in an hour in an hour or two. I get the truck mount guy.

Lets also say, you have a pretty expensive or whatever rare,etc car...you walk into 2 shops. Are you hiring the guys with a clean shop and the matco and snapon boxes or the guy with the HF's? On one hand the harbor guy may be the best, but on the other the other guys have invested in their work and it leaves a good impression (even if it may not be the case they're the best choice) and impressions count. I want the guys buying the specialty tools off the truck, not the dude with a couple of vice grips making do (well unless i know them pretty well)....regardless impressions count be it bs or not.

A guy working in a shop may buy milwaukee, makita, ,etc a guy making house calls is going to be using the ryobi because they're gonna leave it sitting somewhere eventually.

Don't show up to chop down my oak tree with nothing but a stihl.

Sometimes you need a cheap pan, sometimes you need stainless.

That said these aren't for home owners, they're not likely ones buying sk sockets. I'm a hobbyist i can't do the sockets (but i won't buy chinese either, can swing taiwan however there's less pride there if you like using good tools). but the sk screw driver, torx , hex sets are pretty reasonably priced on this and pretty minimal on something i'll have forever, that's the stuff if i buy cheap i leave whereever or bang on them ...which is no problem but then can't find them the next time, whereas i'm going to damn sure put away the good stuff.

Same here. I'd rather just shop around for Harbor Freight sets if my collection isn't complete. Hell, even Home Depot has some insanely cheap basic tools like wrenches and sockets. And that's at regular price too. I needed a 22mm wrench to get my rusted up O2 sensor removed and Home Depot has them for under $5 each. Lowes would've been $10 and online is even more. I believe getting one from China off eBay would've been $5+ and it would've taken 2 weeks. Always good to shop around, most of my tools are Craftsman when they were having their clearance sales.

A nut does give a darn about poorly designed or improperly sized sockets and especially open end wrenches . I'm not saying you need snap on Matco or SK but you can find deals of decent quality. For instance DeWalt hand tools are made by Stanley who also produces a very professional line Proto. The DeWalt socket and wrench sets utilize the proto design for their contact areas. Less slipping and less rounded off fasteners. One stripped bolt is all that it takes to make a $40 set better than a $15 set. If you truly can't afford something that works you can borrow tools from autozone or advance auto. I'm sure others do this also.
Edit:autocorrect and chubby fingers.

Life is too short to use crappy tools. I am just a hobbyist but I use primarily tools made in the USA. Proto , Cornwell, etc.

I have a bunch of SK and love them too. I do have a smattering if HF and other tools but go for 🇺🇸 most times.

Also, a well kept Matco, Proto,or SK set is worth something when you no longer need it.

How many folks pass down their Chinese made HF tools 30 to 40 years later to their grandkids.

I've tried several times to purchase a socket set with this deal. Every time I go through the check out process and hit the final order button I get an error message that says "server error please try again." Checked with my credit card account and it showed eight attempts that were approved. I did an on-line chat with their customer service people and they were completely unhelpful. All they said was to check with my credit card company. Which I had already done. Tried adding my middle initial, tried two other different cards, same error message every time. I can't imagine the sight is slammed given that this deal has been on for awhile and still has three days left.

Oh well, guess I'll just pass on the deal.

I saw a bunch of people had the same issue on garage journal. They ended up calling in orders to sk and some talked them into a 45% discount due to the hassle of having to call in.
