Just wanted to pass this along. This is the lowest price I have seen..

Both are "Hot Buys" so most codes will NOT apply, but current prices are best I have seen, even with discounts.

Here's the links...

I have the 230 pc set. Never realized how much I'd use it until I had it. Big fan.

The 311pc is a good set in terms of sockets included. Lots of deep well stuff. For a starting set I would prefer normal vs ratcheting combination wrenches but this isn't a bad thing here. Most sets include a few wrenches but typically very few. They often are missing enough sizes that you have to buy a complete second set of combination wrenches and thus you are left with with a few redundant wrenches. This set comes with no standard combination wrenches (standard meaning fixed end, not SAE) so no repeats. However, while ratcheting combo wrenches are nice to have, the box ends are large and often can't get into tight spaces. If you can have only one or the other, you want the non-ratcheting kind.

Probably because he doesn't like the store, as opposed to your sexual preference of bestiality.

Here's another good one. 323 Piece (Virtually the same as the 311 piece but with 12 more bits, has ratchet wrenches but they aren't 75-tooth) for $144.89! So it's more, for less!

So I have been contemplating since the 108 piece and 118 piece sets came on front page yesterday in which one to get. There is this set which has the 1/2" ratchet wrench along with more sockets, etc., And then there is the other aforementioned ones which have only 1/4 & 3/8 wrenches. I am not sure if I need the 1/2" (good to have I suppose) wrench for general household work and small work on car. It will be my starter set.

So question to our community here is should I get the 108 piece and then add a 1/2" wrench and sockets as required or should I go ahead and get the 230 (or 216) piece combo. Thanks in advance.

I haven't looked at the 108 piece but there is someting to be said for the 2xx set and the case that holds all the stuff in place...I have 2 of the 230 piece ones (1 for each car) and they work well enough....

The 108 piece set has the 1/4" and 3/8" sets with lesser sockets as opposed to this set which have the other two above and the 1/2" as well with more sockets to fit the 1/2" one. Other than that there are more hex keys (14 as opposed to 40) and few other differences.

The reason for my dilemma is because till now I have been managing to do most house jobs and car oil changes, etc with basic tools nowhere close to any of these sets. Hence not sure if I ever need the 1/2".

Btw- there are some good deals on socket sets as well for both the 3/8 & 1/2.

Since I work on my cars from time to time I find value in the 1/2". But I'm also a tool kinda guy - I'd rather have what I need when I want it (especially late night when stores are closed)-- than not. But for around the house I can't see a need for 1/2" drive if you have lock jaw pliers. I guess it comes down to your use case.

Not sure what to get, but for $65 I can get the 230 piece set and get $25 points back to use towards jack stands I was already going to buy. Is the 230 piece set decent enough for that deal?
