Great deal at certain Lowes stores. Several available around me. Best of luck!

Some show $39.98 but out of stock.

This is an excellent set if you can find it for this price or lower. The quality of the tools is pretty good. Set is complete, meaning no skipping sizes. 90 tooth ratchet. Nice

One more reason to check the item listing page at stores near you.. as my local store sold out, their store item listing page then displayed the 'shipping' option available for a day or two (while still showing their lower sold out clearance price). When I checked the item listing page displaying 0 available for store pickup, I was surprised to see the shipping option now available. I was able to get one shipped to my home for $24.98 (including $4.99 shipping fee) plus sales tax ($25.xx).

Their unexpected shipping option did disappear after a day or two, so there may be a temporary window of shipping available as these sets sell out and their listing pages update to their normal price? Perhaps it may be an unintended consequence of local store system tardy updates? Everyone has surely experienced their day-to-day store inventory 'issues'.. as you've gotten the phone call and their age-old 'non-stocked item story - we don't know why the web page shows 29 available at our store... we don't have any'.. blah-blah...

I have no regrets, its a nice kit for the price, so good luck obtaining one.. and stay safe.

Really good value for the price, and will make a nice gift. I'll be on the look out for the price to drop, still full price around me on the stores that have them.

Just an FYI. If you're like me and already have an arsenal of hand tools, and plan to use as a spare in your vehicles or around the house, don't forget about the $6 40pc set from harbor freight. It sometimes goes on sale for $3.99. I have a few of them. It comes in handy doing light duty tasks and don't have to lug or roll by craftsman tool box.

Am I crazy, or do the pictures show 12 point sockets? The description says 6 point.

It almost looks like half and half in some pictures and all 12-point in others. Strange.

Pretty sure it's some of each. I bought this set and ended up returning it. The ratchets are great, but the sockets are the same exact as the harbor freight quinn sockets. Don't get me wrong, they get the job done for any homeowner, they're decent sockets. The only reason I bought them in the first place is because they said "shallow" and I was hoping they were shorter than my HF sockets. The craftsman shallow sockets are shorter than HF and Kobalt so that's what I was hoping for. Comparing the Quinn HF to Kobalt they are literally the same exact thing (down the the blue and red stripes). I was bummed to return because the ratchets are great, but I ended up getting a couple of the 364 piece household sets last week on clearance for 20 bucks which has the ratchets, sockets, wrenches, etc. My opinion is that the value in this set comes from the ratchet really, because for 10 bucks you can get the exact same sockets at HF.

Kobalt is American Made. Quinn is a British tool company making copycat tools. They even list it on the HF site, saying "Compare to Kobalt..."

Would rather buy American. Smilie

FYI - These are $7.19 each in some stores. Ordered earlier, but I wanted to check to see if any stores closer had them in now, found one about 15 minutes further away that had them discounted more.
