Craftsman was a very good brand in the 90s. This leads to a lot of confusion nowadays. They are Harbor Freight quality across-the-board in 2019.

OK, we get it. Evolve isn't great tool quality and many of you don't need any more allen wrenches, but this kit isn't geared towards those that already have a bunch of tools or need great quality because they use tools often. This kit is great for the kid's first apartment or to store in mom and dad's coat closet for occasional use in and around the house.

I'd rank this lower tier of Craftsman about the same as the Pittsburg offerings from Harbor Freight. They also offer multi-purpose sets in a convenient case (complete with allen wrenches and drive bits) and you should buy what best fits your needs, but comparatively I think this Evolve set at $58 is a better value.

Pittsburgh 225-piece set for $140 [harborfreight.com] ($112 after 20% off coupon)
Pittsburgh 130-piece set for $40 [harborfreight.com] ($32 after 20% off coupon)

Id have to disagree for a simple reason , warranty. Sears is pretty much done for and the evolv line doesn't carry the same warranty as craftsman so you cant go to Lowes and get an exchange. These type of tools just don't last and when they do eventually break you're pretty much screwed do to the fact that most wont care to save the receipt and even if they do if there will still be a sears nearby? not likely. the harbord freight set you posted with coupon for $112 will have more tools and even if they do break you dont need a receipt just bring it to the store and change it. as far as quality i will be the first to say that HF tool quality has improved dramatically over the last 5-10 years and IMHO they are better quality tools than the Evolv Line.

I even posted some great Tekton Tool sets for about 140 that are 10 fol better than these

HF has different price/quality tiers. I have some of their more expensive pliers and clamps that are made in Taiwan.

Their mid-tier offerings are better than Craftsman, but usually more expensive than the Craftsman sale price. Craftsman usually lines up closer in quality to their bargain Pittsburgh line.

I bought a great Non-Evolv Craftsman set made in the USA for $70 about 4-5 years ago. Works great.

In terms of this deal, Evolv isn't that bad. I have a few of this line and they seem decently made. It's just their lower line stuff for occassional use which is fine for most people.

Also you can get those HF pittsburg pieces cheaper htan the 20% coupons:
$99 for the 225 piece set http://www.hfqpdb.com/best_coupon...S+TOOL+KIT

$30 for the 130 piece:
http://www.hfqpdb.com/best_coupon...+WITH+CASE

IMHO you're better off with either than the evolv.

Help about this craftsman wrench https://www.sears.com/craftsman-c...A036705580

Can't find any review at all, or ratings. Should I get it since it's a craftsman? Can't find any reviews I am thinking discontinued or something wrong with it? What do you guys think buy it? decent price?
