I do not believe I have seen anyone else post this so I thought I would share what I stumbled into this morning.

I can not attest to the quality of this tool set and I have also read that it is not completely compatible with the entire Craftsman Versastack line; something about certain boxes in the lineup can not go on-top of it without modification. Other than that it does have a decent lineup of sockets; not perfect but good.

If you have bought into the Versastack ecosystem already then this is a great opportunity to add another piece to your collection. I am aware (since I have been trying to monitor it) that it was this price back around Black Friday but I don't believe I have seen it hit this price since then, I am not willing to bet even a penny on that statement though Smilie

Here is a link to a review (no affiliation to me) that has good pictures of the set https://homefixated.com/craftsman...et-review/

You may be able to add a 10 off $50 or $20 off $100 coupon with a filler if those are still around. Making the price $89.99 or $80.00 (approx).

Happy shopping!

In Illinois, my local had 23 in stock at $99. So have this set and dislike the box and drawers. Sockets just sit drawers, do not lock into anything. Dropped or bumped, you'll like find the sockets loose all over the drawers.
I just arrived home with this set and I can confirm that the 1/4" and 3/8" are all 6 pt and the 1/2" is 12 point.

First observations:

-/+ Lighter than I thought it would be

+ All the drawers are completely removable, makes things easier.

+ The 3/8" set is quite nice when you factor in all the sockets in the 1/4".

+ 1/2" socket wrench has nice feel to it even though compared to old school socket wrenches this ones is on the light side.

- The 3/8" to 1/4" socket adapter I took a double take on... almost felt like it was plastic (super light); still not 100% convinced it isn't. None of the other pieces feel like that though.

- - - - Zero organization for the wrenches they basically just have some open space to throw them in; that I was quite disappointed in; I thought for sure there would be some little trick for them. I think they are going to find a new home and i'll put their current home to use with some random sockets and flexible extensions that I have.

Basically the set is just okay if you didn't have anything before and gets bumped up quite a few notches if you are already invested in the Versastack system; which I am. I am actually a Versastack and Tstak person now. The deep drawers from Tstak really add a lot to the Versastack system's versatility, also the Tstak dolly is a nice thing to bring into the mix as well.

Overall I like the mobile tool storage system that all the companies are doing; it is easy to break up into manageable pieces to take to various locations and that was a big reason I picked up this set; it combines well into it the package (obviously). I was tempted to go another route but it does look good together.

Would I go all in on the Versastack and Tstak systems again if I could have a reset.... the answer is more than likely no, it isn't that they are bad but there is other options. I have some mods in mind to make it a little better but if I were starting over I would switch up and go with this company that I found recently (no affiliation) https://www.auer-packaging.com/gb...s-Pro.html or win the lottery and get the high end Snap-on aviation/industrial tool sets Smilie

Best of luck with the deal hunting everyone!
No John, you already have a 300 piece chrome vanadium set in the tool box. A new one is unnecessary.

Good post and find. You may want to add YMMV. It appears after searching st my local store and from a brickseek search that not all Lowe's are pricing it at that price.

All stores may not be posting at that price but they have free shipping from what I can tell so you can change your store to one that does if needed.

Damn... Now i'm wishing i stocked up on the 50$ + 10$ gift card..
The fact that I didn't is making me not want to jump on this, but even at 100$ it seems like a good deal. Can someone who has personal experience with this set attest for its value ?

I can't find a complete inventory list for this kit. Some of the literature out there seems to indicated these are all 6-point sockets. Can anyone who's picked theirs up yet confirm or deny that?

According to the Q&A, 1/2" drive is all 12 pt. 1/4" & 3/8" drives are all 6 pt.

Just picked two up last night. One for myself one for father in law. Replacing my clam shell set with 154 pieces. This one has 50% more. Sockets go up higher. 14 wrenches vs 8. Idc if it's disorganized as long as they're all together. Even the screwdriver handle is better, has rubber on it for grip vs the old one which was just hard plastic. It has torx up to T40. Would be nice if they had thrown triple square bits would've made it 99% complete. Has two spark plug sockets 5/8 & 13/16. Can't complain for $99. 6 & 3 " Extensions for 1/4 and 3/8 drive, only 6 " for 1/2 drive. Again, $99 is not bad. Wish wrenches went up a little higher but I got some stubby sunex that are pretty comprehensive.
