$119.50 normally $239.

Lowes employees confirmed this set is being discontinued. Once they are gone, that's it.

The 227 piece goes on sale for $99 every black friday. This is a great deal if you missed it.

There aren't many sockets in there, but there's a s**t ton of filler pieces. Still might be worth it, but Lowe's doesn't even list the contents of these sets. :/

* Edit: I found a pic of the box that I had taken in December with the content list. Added to Wiki.

Nice find but I am Craftsman over loaded at this time. The "Lords of Kobalt" tools are a quality product and have a lifetime free replacement warranty at Lowes. Unlikely Lowes will ever go out of business and miss the made in USA tools from sears.

Kobalt 314-piece mechanic's tool set includes 124 commonly used 6-point and 12-point sockets, 25 assorted driver sockets, 3 ratchets, 4 extensions, 3 drive adapters, 6 open-end combination wrenches, 40 hex keys, 12 nut driver adapters, 1 magnetic b
Chrome vanadium-steel construction sockets with a professional-grade, high-polish finish provide durability
Easy-to-read laser-etched callouts and color-coded stripes allow for easy identification between standard (red) and metric (blue) measurements
1/4-in, 3/8-in and 1/2-in ratchets feature a 90-tooth design with 4� of arc swing, so you can easily work in tight spaces
Quick-release button on ratchets allows for quick socket and accessory changes
Large 4-drawer, blow-molded tool chest keeps tools organized and provides convenient storage and transportation
Hassle-free lifetime guarantee gives you peace of mind

Thanks OP. My store (Lancaster, PA) says they have 8 in stock. The case is impressive. I was expecting one of those cheap, fold-open, molded hard plastic cases, which I hate.

BTW there are lots of $15-off-$50 Lowe's coupons to be found at eBay (unless you've got the time to plug random numbers in and figure out a working code on your own. I gave up on that a long time ago).

The problem there is that codes obtained that way are from exploiting a mathematical hack that generates one-time-use coupon codes that Lowes has probably already sent, or soon will be sending, to innocent customers who will lose their legitimately obtained discount if someone else uses their one-time-use code before they do.

To get legitimate non-stolen Lowe's coupons, sign up to be on their marketing lists and for their in-store events.

Well, I just counted the number of sockets and it's about 130 sockets. The rest is just cheap fillers like screw driver bits and allen wrenches which you might never need. While 314 pieces sounds like a lot with a nice box, this is more like 130 pieces set with fillers and a nice box. EEK!

Every pre-packaged tool set is going to have a mix of expensive pieces and less costly pieces. Some of these tools will be essential to some people and some will never be used or vice-versa depending on the individual and what they will be working on. Your "filler" might very well be required by someone working on something else. So rather than being hung up on how many sockets you get, look at a set in whole and gauge its particular usefulness for you.

That all being said, can you find a more useful set (irregardless of the number of included tools) for this amount of money?
