Pros:Reliability and versatility is the name of this game.
The Bottom Line: You will not regret spending 50 dollars on this set especially since it will last you just about forever.
If you love Craftsman tools and you need something to get started, this is the perfect set that you can keep in your car and this little set of 94 piece mechanics tool set will help you out in your time of need. Because this set is the a set made by Craftsman it can be found at Sears, and maybe even K-Mart, and even Ace Hardware for only $50.00. You used to be only able to find these at Sears but, since they have merged with a whole bunch of different store such as K-Mart and Ace Hardware the availability is tremendous. The prices and warranty still remain the same no matter which store that you go to. If you were to purchase any Craftsman product at any of these retailers, you will not need a receipt, just take it back to the store and they will replace the product. This set has those quick release ratchets and a basic mixture of wrenches and other tools that will help you get started.

10 piece standard screwdriver bit set, Magnetic Handle,12 piece nut driver set , 14 piece standard and metric hex Allen wrench set, Ratchets and Extensions ¼",3/8" thin profile ratchets, ¼" and 3/8" drive x 3" extension.
This is an excellent set to keep inside of your car, home or garage. All of these pieces together weigh less than thirty pounds and each piece is laser etched for easier identification, there is a nice durable plastic case to hold all of these pieces so you won’t have all of these pieces rolling around in the trunk of your car. The ratchet and sockets are excellent if you think that you may need this for a repair on your car.
I have been using these tools for several years and not one time did these ever break or strip. They are made of hardened chrome steel and are very durable. I have used these with a breaker bar and not broken any of them. I have left these under the hood of the car, kicked them around and even ran them over accidentally, started the engine up and heard a rattling around, when I found them, they barely had a scratch on them from hitting the fan blade. If you are using the right size these will usually fit snuggly at first, but if you do not keep them clean then the next time that you go to use them you will have a hard time fitting the socket on the bolt.
The really nice thing about this set is that it has both standard metric and there is a spot for every piece inside of your case, you may very rarely use the metric sockets but when you happen onto one of these types of heads, you are happy that you have one of these types of sockets inside of your set. These sockets are probably the most used part of my tools because they are so handy. A lot of times I do not have time to go through all of my drawer looking for the right size, instead I just grab this set which has an assortment of different sizes and each one is laser etched, and as long as I can remembered to put these away and even the extension and ratchet inside of the case, then I have everything to make a repair.
$50.00 is not a bad price for a set of tools as versatile as this one. You will be surprised at how much you will actually use this set. Just because it is so easy to grab this instead of searching for the right tool and making sure that you do not have to go back and search again if you are wrong. This set is a normal fixture inside of a lot of mechanics cars and at home or at work.
I would highly recommend that you add this set to your repertoire of tools, especially if you want to have a easier go of your job. Five stars for durability and versatility and ease of use. The main thing to remember is that even if you just get this and it sits for a while, it will never lose its value. Just remember this the first time that you do not have to call someone out to do a repair on your house or car. You can simply do the repair yourself and keep the money in your pocket instead of giving it away.
