Why You’ll Love It: This Craftsman 154-Piece Mechanic’s Tool Set comes with every socket, wrench, or bit you might need for projects around the house, shop, or garage.

The Full Scoop: This Craftsman set with custom injection-molded case is a must-have for every serious do-it-yourselfer, providing a comprehensive solution for innumerable applications. 6-point and 12-point sockets are included, along with deep well sockets, a dozen wrenches (comprising 24 total end sizes), and small socket drivers for handling hex-head screws.

All Craftsman hand tools are covered by Craftsman’s limited lifetime warranty. If any components of this set happen to break (for example, if the ratchet mechanism stops working, or a socket strips out), Craftsman will replace the tool at no cost. Perhaps the best part about Craftsman’s warranty is that it requires neither registration nor a receipt. Simply bring the tool to your local Sears store and get a replacement.
