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 Set.
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.
