CRAFTSMAN 24-Piece Standard (SAE) 3/8-in Drive 6-point Shallow Socket Set



and what's a very cool guy norm here he had to talk about the craftsman socket said I just picked up at Lowe's again me and Mike Weir in Lowe's getting something for a job and I walked by it and I'm a sucker for craftsman I'm a sucker for tools but a sucker for Craftsman tools and I saw it and I had to get it not just because I'm a sucker for Christman tools but because of the size of the box I have a used to have I still have it I didn't get rid of it I had a different brand socket set that I kept keep in my toolbox case I need sockets and the Box the profile of the box took up a whole lot of room in my bag so this actually takes up a lot less room and one thing it has in it is the screwdriver handle that most of the socket sets don't come with anymore and the last time we did a big project on a install I wished I had it because then I could use it as a nut driver because we were using nut drivers a lot then so I ended up putting nut drivers in my tool bag and now I got rid of my nut drivers and the bigger the bigger box for the socket set craftsman actually has changed the design of their wrenches or their socket wrenches because if you are a longtime craftsman user you'll notice it's a little bit different I don't have another one of my Craftsman socket wrenches with but trust me they've changed the design and actually I kind of like it they still use the flat bar instead of a round bar but it's shaped slightly different one of the other things I liked about this set is that it also came with a couple of extra not extra but larger bits the 7/8 and at thirteen sixteenths my last one my other one only went up to the 3/4 and for some of the boats we need we use or are removing or putting in are a little bit bigger so on the bigger displays they have bigger bolts these will come in handy one of the things I actually add it to it was this adapter because that will allow me to use a screwdriver handle with my sockets and now I have nut drivers for any size that I need and actually put the adapter in there this is just an extra one I had but I'm assuming they didn't put it in there because this is the 3/8 inch drive kit instead of a quarter inch drive kit the smaller drive can't usually in those they have this adapter in there but I have plenty of these because a lot of times instead of using a nut driver I will use the the sockets with my drill to drill to drive stuff and that's another thing about craftsman one of the reasons why I prefer it because even though these aren't impact rated I feel more comfortable using these with an impact driver then the than any other brand because I haven't had ever had a problem with these and I've used them to break not physically break but break lug nuts on my trucks I used to have I'm not used to I still have large a lot larger sets I have the big breaker bar the big long bar and I used I've you actually used them to break the lug nuts off of wheels on my vehicles and with an impact gun and these aren't impact rated and they never broke so I have confidence and grasping it also had the bits it has star bits all the way up to t30 which is really good because we have some bits some screws that we use to t30 and it also goes down the t10 rarely use t10 accident usually use 20s 25 and 30s the most as a one number one Philips in the number two and another three films and then a one and two flathead bit and actually it was a good deal I got it for it was on say it's on sale at Lowe's I assume it's still on sale at Lowe's I hope it's still on sale at Lowe's it was on sale at Lowe's for $25 and for craftsman kit that's actually a great lifetime warranty I think I've talked about it before it's the only craftsman is the only tools I think that really has a true lifetime warranty because even if like I said they changed the style of this wrench if I have taken back older rent and it was broke they would just give me another one give me this one no questions asked long as it has that craftsman stamp doing it they just take it back and give you an exchange for the closest tool to it so craftsman those on sale for Christmas and even if it's not on sale anymore it's still a good deal it actually stacks with this craftsman bit set driver set and that's how I keep them in my buy in my back we actually made a video on this link here link here and that's how I put them in my back we keep them together but it seems like they're going to all of these stackable boxes with grafton they make a small stackable there you go craftsman and making a comeback if you liked this video

    Requesting a demo if the new Dewalt tough cases can be connected to this. I'm sure it will but just an idea to check out…

    I've not seen this guy in any of V.C.G.'s videos before, Norm seems like a really nice "down to Earth" kind of guy and those are the kind of people I like best. Thank you for making this video. I don't watch this channel very often because there isn't enough emphasis on hand tools on this channel and I was really pleased to see this video show up in my feed because hand tools are a much bigger part of our daily  jobs than power tools are.   I looked at those Craftsman mini-sets at Lowe's but didn't buy any. Craftsman sockets are as good as anyone. I always encourage young new techs  to buy Craftsman or Carlyle sockets sets versus going in debt for Snap On or Mac or SK.But if you use ratchets a lot, I have a very very hot tip for you.  You might want to check out the DeWALT ratchet set as well because those DeWalt ratchets have the same ratchet gear head mechanism as a Mac Tools ratchet, only that the DeWalt handle is made different and cost over $100 less than a Mac ratchet. And some people actually like the DeWalt handle better.

    Is Lowe’s now exchanging Craftsman tools for warranty? I asked about a month ago and they said no. Also, are these now made in China? My Craftsman hand tools are all made in the USA.

    Way to go Norm! I'm sold. This is like a takeaway commercial from those old home improvement shows that were on in the middle of the day, I know because my Mom would be doing mom things around the house and everytime she left the room the soap operas got tuned right the heck off and 6 out of 10 times something like this would be on! It's a relief to see Craftsman can still do something right my man. Thanks again, VCG rocks the shop and the jobsite!

    What beautiful set. Tempting to go and pick up. Seems like they made the ratchet serviceable at home.
