5.0 out of 5 stars We are always reaching for this, July 22, 2009
This review is from: Crescent 170-Piece Mechanics Tool Set (Tools & Home Improvement)
I currently work at an agricultural sales and service business and we bought this set for quickly tossing into the truck when we needed to go fix something. It works well for that but we also have found it's almost easier to grab this case just in the shop rather than running back and sifting through the toolbox to find the right tool.

Now you have to consider what you are going to use this set for. For most people it will be good enough quality for their jobs. Great set for a DIY mechanic. Now if you're a long time professional mechanic who's got the money, buy yourself some snap-on stuff; for the rest of us, it'll work good enough.

Lots of tools and are very well organized. Plenty of sockets and enough wrenches to get you by (all the usual, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, and some metric, I can't remember what other sizes).

My major cons with the product is the plastic case. The case folds open with the top two "wings" folding out exposing all the tools. The tools don't always stay in their spots and you can expect a few screw tips, pliers, or what not to fall out when you open it up. The sockets are stuck in there good though, those can be tough to get out. The case secures with a tab on the top and bottom of each wing. It holds good enough but the tab can easily be broken off when the case is open.

Overall it's a good set and the case shortfalls don't justify a drop in rating. If you need a good tool set, this will work.
