One of the reviews mentions "made in china" Is this where sears is having their tools made now?

I bought this set about 2 years ago for about $160 so this isn't a bad deal for a pretty complete set. However, I bought it cuz I liked the case it came in and thought it would make a decent travel set that would stay organized and cut down on lost tools since its easy to see if something is missing since each tool has a prefitted spot. The only problem with this is the cheap plastic the case is made with wont hold all the weight of the tools it is supposed to hold. The first time I picked it up after spending an hour unpacking everything and putting it all in its place the drawers fell out and all the tools went everywhere causing a huge mess. I've since solved this problem with a bungee cord that I keep wrapped around it but as the case wore out it began not to hold together at the joints and required a few long screws put thru it at various points to avoid similar mishaps. All in all I still feal like for the money I got a deal and I still use the set quite of often.

is anyone else having problems getting this box at the advertised price and the free shipping? I was going to get one, but when I clicked on the link the price is $149 with a $20 shipping fee

@prettywootprincess: "Can you name 255 tools? Hammer. That’s one. Umm…chisel? This is hard.

::snicker:: :-D Yup, I find naming that many tools difficult, too. But, there must be dozens of different screwdrivers. And stuff....

I am getting the $15 off, but not free shipping?..

I have had this exact tool kit for over a year. The tools are high-quality and haven't let me down yet and I like how the tools are divided in between three different drawers. However, the box they come in? Not that great. This is because when you pick the toolbox up by the handle on top all that's between the lid staying shut or breaking open are those two little flimsy red clasps. I've had the lid open and all the contents of the toolbox fall out. So don't use the top handle.

I think this is false advertising as they are not selling it for the price shown above. I would get a couple of sets if they were at that price.

I'm having an issue with Sears right now not giving the advertised price. On a set on sale for $75, when you click on the button to add to cart it apologizes. The sale dates are still good. Open it in a new window and the price is $99. I bought it anyway and intend to extract the money from Sears, the hard way. I am seeing more price switching and coupon declining from Sears all the time. What do they think they are.... KMart?

Another thought. Instead of using the MyGofer link, you can get the item number and link through FatWallet and get cashback - then search Sears for the model number. Same price.

@videowallart: All tools in this kit will be made in China. For the casual user or somebody who just wants a quick-response travel kit, that won't matter, but if you're using hand tools professionally or on a regular basis be ready to lay down more coin on made in usa tools with warranties. Now, with that being said, the warranty is still good on these, but under constant use you will end up using it.

Qualifying Orders of $59 or more SHIP FREE for SYWR Members! Offer ends 10-Jul-2013 See details.

You have to be a SYWR.. whatever that is.

vote-for4vote-against

yes, sears switched to manufacturing their hand tools in China...warranty is still in effect, as always.
Don't assume they are junk - many other high quality tool brands have been made in China for years... Home Depot's Husky brand, Lowes, GM Goodwrench, Master Mechanic....just a few examples.
There are no brands of Allen wrenches/keys made in the US - last company closed 2 years ago.

Some Stanley tools are made in US but most in China. Stanley owns many brands - Mac, Proto, Blackhawk and a bunch more (gearwrench I believe too).
About the only major brand still is Snap-on, and possibly Matco. Some Allen/Armstrong brand are made in Texas, most not.

I have this kit as well. The only time I dumped the tools all over the place is when I forgot to latch the drawer locks. Never had an issue with the top handle. I also have several extra tools I keep in the top compartment that adds more weight.

May just snag another kit. It's been very useful

SYWR = Shop Your Way Rewards

I can't find a list of included tools anywhere. They used to publish that for every set.

@videowallart: Notice it say Craftsman, not Sears.

@ttm77: Craftsman is a brand of tools (and other stuff) by Sears.

I just tried to order this online and it did not honor the promo code. It did at first but did not take shipping cost of over $17 off. The advertisement said "+ Free Shipping". I tried again to apply the code and this time it said that that code did not apply to the item I had chosen. I chose it on deals.woot.com and it took me to the mygofer (Sears) site but will not give me this deal - Boooo!

just about everything is made i china these days.

I got the free shipping, but the coupon didn't work. Also seemed to have trouble using the rewards, however, I re-entered the site through shop discover to get 10 percent cash back, even though I pay with a Visa with it's own cash back. Craftsman tools work quite well, and they are the easiest to replace if broken. Sure there are the premium tools with the fancy polish, Snap-On, MAC, Cornwell... but the truck isn't going to come to your house when you need a wrench replaced!

@saylav: I think the code expired. It worked for me this morning and doesn't now.
