Craftsman tool set

Got in a situation a few years back was going through a divorce and I quit working on cars. Sold all my tools. So now I'm looking for a new tool set to get me started on cars again. I mainly need the sockets, wrenches, screw drivers, and box. I'm looking at purchasing this Crafts man 283 pc kit with the box. What do you guys think of this set? I will also be purchasing a few things seperate, such as pliers, jacks, breaker bar, etc. I like craftsman because I don't usually even need a receipt and sears replaces them.

I'd make sure you get metric tools. Gear wrenches & flex handle rachets & electric 1/4 & 3/8 drive impacts. A tool cart works great too. & of course a desent light weight impact wrench= no CP's aka CP earthquake's by harbor freight, etc.

make sure you check the craftsman website first. same set is $315 with $32 s/h
that way you could save some cash for more tools:) plus i'm sure there is a store near you and you could save shipping all together!

You would get more bang for your buck at Harbor Freight if you have one in your area.
You can have it shipped also. http://www.harborfreight.com/clearan...kit-45951.html

I made the mistake of buying some tools from Harbor Freight before and they are ALL junk. There are some things it just doesn't pay to go cheap on and tools are one of them -- just my opinion of course...

For me it's hard to beat Craftsman for quality tools. They are not cheap and they are not cheapy -- you get what you pay for.

I have a Craftsman tool kit with both SAE and Metric sockets. In addition, it has SAE and Metric allen bits as well as TorX bits. See link below...

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...2820000P?mv=rr

This set, with the addition of some screw drivers, adjustable wrenches, small hammer, combo tool, razor knife, tire repair kit and pump will be all you should need for 95% or all work you could do and probably 99% of emergency repairs on the road.

Stay far away!! Harbor Freight is for tools you need but are only going to use once or twice. Not for something that will need to last you.

Snap On are Professional quality tools. Mac are Professional quality tools. Craftsman are home owner quality tools. So are Pittsburg (Harbor Freight) and Husky etc.
Craftsman can't be cheerfully exchanged as was true in the past.
