If you’ve ever owned
anything that bears the name Craftsman, you know your money was well spent on
these solid, reliable tools.
For more than 80 years, the
Craftsman name has been providing farmers with innovative tools to complete any
job of any size.
The company continues that
tradition with the latest additions to its hand-tool lineup: the Craftsman
Universal Mechanics Tool Set and the Craftsman Universal Ratchet and Socket
And in case you didn’t know,
all Craftsman hand tools come with a lifetime guarantee.
Mechanics Tool Set
The 56-piece Craftsman
Universal Mechanics Tool Set (pictured) incorporates socket and wrenches that
feature the unique universal tooth design, which can grip six different types
of nuts and bolts: six-point, 12-point, partially rounded, external TORX, and
square- and spline-shape fasteners.
The kit includes 18
universal sockets, a universal 3⁄8-inch ratchet with a 45-tooth ratcheting
mechanism and an 8° ratcheting arc, and 14 Craftsman universal wrenches.
The universal wrench
features a reinforced open end that reduces tip spread under heavy load to
prevent rounded fasteners. Flip it around for a closed end side that features
an angled head for better clearance, leverage, and the universal tooth design.
Also included in the set are hex keys, a screwdriver base, and 10 different
types of screwdriver tips. The 56-piece Craftsman Universal Mechanics Tool Set
retails for $79.99.
Ratchet And Socket Set
The universal tooth sockets
are available in a nine-piece Socket Set in both inch and metric and can be
used with any Craftsman 3⁄8-inch drive ratchet. The sockets feature a knurled
socket grip, which provides gripping power when changing sizes. The nine-piece
Socket Set retails for $14.99.
Sockets are also available
as a 19-piece Socket Wrench Set that comes with a universal ratchet and both
inch and metric socket sizes. The ratchet features a 45-tooth ratcheting
mechanism that provides an 8° ratcheting arc. A quick-release button allows for
easy socket attachment and removal. The 19-piece set includes a reusable caddy
with a carrying handle with holes for hanging on the wall to display. The set
sells for $34.99.
