Stanley Mechanic Set

I dug up this nice $40 Stanley tool set over at Amazon that looks perfect for the car. It contains two drive ratchets, one extension, 38 sockets, two wrenches, five nut drivers, seven bits, and seven other tools — all wrapped up in a durable latching plastic case.

    Ok, I was going to bash this set for having 12pt sockets instead of 6pt, and then refer you guys to a decent 95 piece Craftsman set which is typically “on sale” for $50 or $60. http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/product.do?pid=00934095000

    Before I did all that, I wanted to confirm that the Stanley set was in fact composed of 12pt sockets as the photo shows. Scrolling down I didn’t find too much info, but I did find this:

    “Do you want to receive an extra 20% discount on this item when Amazon.com is the seller? Enter code SAVEXTRA at checkout.”

    Sooo the price on this set is $32 and not $40. That’s a more than reasonable price for a starter set or as part of a car kit.

    FYI An almost identical Stanley set is on sale today at woot.com for $35.

    Not a bad deal, but that’s about what they’re worth. I’ve got nothing against Chinese tools, unless they’re disguised under a well known American name.

    Like someone said on slickdeals in regard to a $10 set at Radio Shack: “it’s better to have cheap tools than no tools”.
