Pass - no 1/2" I paid $50 for my Craftsman ones with similar pieces. Overpriced due to packout premium.
Trays sell for $20 - build your own set will be cheaper.

3/8" and 1/4" sets tend to not have 1/2" sockets. I am pretty sure this is normal. Thought you might want to know that.

These ratchets are nicer than even my top of the line Craftsman 84T thin profile ratchet (which was my previous favorite). The sockets beat craftsman in every way except the ring that Craftsman puts around SAE/dashed ring on metric.

The trays you linked only fit the Milwaukee square end sockets, so you need to buy the tray, the Packout case, the sockets.... why not just get it all with OPs deal and be done

You can get both Milwaukee sets (1/4 and 3/8) separately for $50 cheaper than this combo set. I would think having the sets separated would be a better deal so you can grab which ever set you want rather than needing to deal with both:

Edit: actually NM. They two sets I linked to above have many socket sizes that are not provided vs. the OP's set.

This wont work, as the Milwaukee sockets have four flat sides, and the deep socket part of the trays are designed specifically for them. The molded plastic starts off round, but becomes more squared off where the deep sockets snap in. Shallow sockets will fit because those slots are just a circle, but conventional deep sockets from other brands wont fit these without modification.

I'm the OP. And I love Milwaukee tools. I already have the 1/4 and 3/8 SAE/Metric sets. And the 1/2 metric set.

I kind of wish I had this set instead so I could fit the 1/4 and 3/8 sets in the provided slim packout case. You are definitely paying a premium for the Packout capability and the Milwaukee name vs other brands like Husky, Cobalt, Craftsman, and Tekton.

From my experience, I've owned Craftsman's and Tekton sets and these are definitely better quality and the square design is a really nice feature.

When I click the "Check Order Status" in the confirmation email it brings me to all my order information.
