Craftsman 4in1 Wrench Set

Through this Thursday, Sears is discounting both their standard and metric 4-in-1 wrench sets by 50%. Normally $30, right now you can pick up a set for $15. Each set includes two 12-point box-end wrenches with reversible ratcheting sockets that fit two different sizes. That means each wrench can tighten and loosen four different sized fasteners.

The two-wrench standard set includes one wrench that fits 5/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″, and 1/2″ sizes, and a second wrench that fits 9/16″, 5/8″, 11/16″, and 3/4″ sizes.

The two-wrench metric set includes one wrench that fits 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, and 13mm sizes, and a second wrench that fits 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, and 19mm sizes.

Craftsman heat-treats the handles and plates them with nickel-chrome — they also heat-treat the box-end sockets and finish them in black oxide.

The deal expires May 1, 2008.

    Aside from the usual uses – my electrician sub uses one to drive hex-head sheet metal screws through holes in the sides of metal receptacle boxes. In remodel work he swears that thus fastening a box to a stud – beats out any of the commercial “old-work” boxes that rely on the drywall.

    Looks like this is an ONLINE deal only – I just dropped by the North Dallas Sears store and they never heard of it…

  3. Yeah sorry I didn’t notice that. It is an online deal says so right on the page, but you can order it online and pick it up at your local Sears if it’s in stock.

    I’ve never tried it at Sears, but I swear by buying stuff online at Circuit City and Best Buy and picking it up at the store. If you’re doing the research online you might as well make the transaction too (the deals are usually better anyway). That way you can just walk into the store with the receipt and pick it up. That way you avoid dangerous activities like shopping.

    I’ve had luck with some stores giving me the deal anyway if I can show it to them. Other stores like Best Buy refuse to honor prices on the web, even when you argue that you’re going to go buy it online and come back and pick it up.

    fred — I’m sure that’s a helluva lot better than an old work box… if you can position the box up against a stud (normally not an issue, but not always). I’ll have to remember that when I’m cutting holes for new boxes; I’ve trashed more than one “old work” box by having the little plastic ears torque off.

    Does he just take a new work box and cut off the nail and holes, or what?

    Re Zathrus Says:

    I’ve seen him use a style of deep metal box that has no nails at all. He runs a Klein step drill into 2 holes in the side to accommodate the sheet metal screws. The wall opening is cut flush with the stud, NM conductor or BX / wires fished and pulled into and secured in the box, the box pushed into the wall. I think that he uses the point of an awl at an angle to start the screw hole, then just works the first hex-head screw in untill it pulls the box up tight to the stud – and then repeats the process with the second screw. He then completes the wiring.
