The tools are the best I've ever used.
on February 24, 2009
Thank you Mom for giving this set to me as a Christmas gift nearly 10 years ago! These tools are incredible. Sadly, most people think of them as a "gimick" off the TV ads. Please believe me (and the others posting reviews) that they are NOT.
When my father passed away, I got all of his sockets and wrench sets. Combined with the ones I already had, I must have owned over 100 pieces. When this tool set came along, I put all of the old pieces into a toolbox and have never once had to use them again. This little box has been able to handle nearly every household and auto repair I've thrown at it. Seriously, I use my set nearly every week...if not more. Just last week I fixed my neighbor's little peddle cart for his son. The week before, changing out my car battery. I'm also proud to say I haven't lost a piece...yet!
My favorite repair story concerns an old motorcycle I owned years ago and couldn't remove the rear wheel axle bolt. I tried with conventional (hah!) sockets but still no luck. At the time, I had just received my Metrinch tool kit but didn't know if the sockets were big enough...they were. After a few seconds working the bolt with my Metrinch socket, it popped right off. I was sold.
These tools are strong and sturdy. The only complaint I can offer is that the small screw sockets are rusting a bit but have no caused any problems when using them.
