Sears has Craftsman Mechanics Tool Sets for 50% + $5 off, plus another 10% off with FIREWORK coupon code and $125 cashback in SYW points for $125+ purchase.

FIREWORK coupon code has expired. There appear to be common $35 off $300, $20 off $150, and $10 off $100 storewide coupons in member coupons.

Prices have been adjusted accordingly

450 piece mechanics tool set [sears.com] - $174.99 (reg $399.99)

320 piece mechanics tool set [sears.com] - $134.99 (reg $299.99) *add $5.01 filler to make it $124.99 w/$20 off $150 coupon

320 piece mechanics tool set [sears.com] - $94.99 (reg $199.99) *add $5.01 filler to make it $84.99 w/$10 off $100 coupon

Admittedly, the $125 cashback SYW kind of sucks because it's $15 now and $10 a month for 11 months, and EXPIRE EVERY 30 DAYS (thanks Sears).

Additional $10 cashback when you select In-Vehicle Pickup in Sears app.

Free shipping on orders $35 or more.

Looks like an additional $10 in points is available if you use the Sears app to choose in-vehicle pickup.

Buy the 320-piece set and make $5.

Any of these worth picking up, or is there a better deal on tool sets? Looks like they all come with the 45 tooth ratchets.

I'm eyeing the 450pc set, for what it matters.

nope. at best its $130.49 for the 320-piece set with $125 worth of other stuff included. Under no circumstance is this $5! (so basically 1/2 price everything if you think about it that way)...

That's probably a more realistic way to think about it.

The 230 piece set has everything you need in it, as opposed to spending $50 and getting an incomplete set without the 1/2 inch ratchet.

Spend another $30 on some ratcheting wrenches, and you've got a set that can do most of what you need for the car. Though there's probably $100 worth of general purpose and specialty tools that I think every home mechanic should have, and they aren't included in any of these sets.

I.E. Pry bar set, magnetic tip screwdrivers, a sledgehammer (and a rubber mallet), a breaker bar/pipe for leverage on the ratchet, etc. And a 4-5 piece set of ratchet extensions for $10.

There is really no all-inclusive set for everything that you would ever need. I would start with the base set and add on from there. I spent around $80 on the equivalent of the 230 piece set about 5 years ago. I mainly just use the sockets. I use the Harbor Freight extendable ratchets as my main ratchets because I like how you can easily gain extra leverage and it has a nice rubber grip. For tighter spaces, I have GearWrench Flexhead wrenches that are on sale at Advance for $34.99, worth every penny.

Here's everything you need IMO to have a pretty complete set of tools for working on the car.

And a pry bar set if you work on suspension. I actually didn't use my pry bar set for a long time. But I use them all the time now for suspension and engine mounts.

That's pretty much everything you would need really. And some pliers of your choice. Vice grips and regular pliers of various size. I just use my father's old stuff for that. How much is that? Like $140 give or take, plus you get 20% off coupons with HF and free stuff every time you go. So if you couple that with the base set, that's everything you need for around $200 total.


i have a couple of Craftsman Toolboxes that I have various tools for. Like deep impact sockets, spark plug socket, hose clamp pliers, ball joint separator, OBD scantool. Stuff like that. I also have the $10 25" breaker bar Harbor Freight sells. Buying tools kind of becomes an addiction, but I think I have everything I need now. Haven't bought much stuff in the past couple years. I think in total I spent like $300-400 on tools for my collection.

Changing plugs on a 4 banger is so easy that I actually change mine every year or two. Takes less than 10 minutes, and under 5 if you really hurry. Just need the socket to go with an extension.

Save yourself the trouble of going to an auto parts store and waiting in line to pull a code. Just buy a scanner. It's not expensive at all. I think this one goes on sale for $12 sometimes.

It looks the the coupon code FIREWORK has expired, however, I found both $20 off $150 storewide and $10 of $100 storewide in my coupons, which I was able to apply.

I think these are common coupons, can anyone else confirm?
