Got my set in a few days ago and just used it today to take apart a riding mower. The flexibility of the ratchet alone makes up for the limited sockets you get. BUT IF YOU HAVE A CRAFTSMAN MAXX ACCESS ( HOPE I SPELLED THAT RIGHT ) SET THAT IS SIMILAR, YOU CAN USE THOSE SOCKETS WITH THIS SET! I BOUGHT THIS SET HOPING THEY WOULD WORK AS MY 3/8 DRIVE RATCHET IS BUSTED IN MY CRAFTSMAN SET. Between the 2 kits I took every manageable nut/bolt out that didn't need a impact to remove! Only complaint is wish the kit had more sockets and offered a 1/4 and 1/2 version. This set also 1ups the craftsman as it has a shorter turn distance before it clicks then the craftsman kit, which = the smaller the area you are able to move the ratchet side to side means this kit will out perform the craftsman as you will get more done and not run out of room so easily before you get it to ratchet back to make your next turn!
