Rated 3 out of 5Â by toolguy The powder coat comes off in your hands ?
I recently purchased this set from my local home depot. Coon Rapids mn. I love the set you really couldn't pack more tools into it but! The powder coating must not have been cooked on very well as the black residue came off on my hands. Not just a little, after using the 3/8th ratchet the whole palm of my hand was black. After examining the whole set every tool in it had the same problem. If you buy this set there is a wrench on the outside of the box. rub your hand on it, if your fingers turn black you can expect all the tools in this set to do the same thing. I'm hoping it was just a bad batch but every set they had had the same problem. I will try a different store. Please fix this home depot! I like the set and hope to find one without this issue.

I would just like to say that these tools are great for the money and will surpass your expectations for the money. The deep-well sockets go from 1/4-13/16. Just a mistake that I thought needed to be brought up and fixed. A great value.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Duaniss Set it perfect for any Do it Yourselfer
The case that everything comes with should be thrown away immediately. There are 4 latches that keep it closed and only 1 remained after a day or two of usage. I went to arbor freight and bought socket holders and put them in my tool box and they fit perfectly now. I love the set now that I'm not breaking my fingers trying to get the tools in and out of the case. The sockets could have been painted better, especially the sizes on them. When put on the socket holders, the printed sizes don't line up so they don't have a uniform look and one of the sockets is printed upside down but that's it. The paint is starting to rub off on certain well used edges but I expected that. I will admit that the wrenches in the set did take some getting used to. They would lock up and be hard to switch direction on but I just oiled them up really well and spun them a bunch after oiled and now they work the way they should. The set only comes with SAE ratcheting wrenches though! So you have to spent $50 for the metric ratcheting wrenches to have the complete set which I did. I thought that was kind of sheisty but, they could have left out the ratcheting wrenches and the value would still be there. I also bought the complete husky polished vanadium wrenches too. They're not snap on, but they're better than craftsman. And for $150, you can't complain.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Return "black chrome" peels off after opening package
These sockets are painted... poorly. After opening the package and removing three sockets, the paint peeled right off on the metric ones. I'm not expecting snap-on quality, but I bought them for the "easy to read" markings... I can't read them if there is no paint. Snap-on engraves the socket sizes... as do even the cheapest set. What do you expect for "black chrome" set that is fairly cheap? More than what I would expect from the plain chrome (that is engraved) which is almost 1/3 as cheap. If I can't read the socket sizes because the only way to read is from the paint which most unfortunately has simply peeled away after the first two minutes of opening the package, then they are worthless to me and everyone else.
They're going back because this socket set is absolutely unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chris Couldn't be happier!
I have used this set for 4 months now and I couldnt be happier. Im a grease monkey that works on project cars. I just finished pulling a motor completely apart down to the crank and havent even gotten any annoying problems like the people below me have read. The tools clean up well, and not a single one has peeled. I used the 1/2 rachet to break a crank pully nut loose that was tightened to 135 ft lbs from the factory 16 years ago. I would recommend this to anyone. Free warranty replacements for life. I did shear a adapter that went from 3/8 to 1/2 while breaking loose the crank pully bolt, but im not surprised, these are not snap on quality tools, but they are good enough to get any job done that I have thrown at them.
