These are great in a pinch, would work really well on the go or as a glovebox tool. But I wouldn't use them for a project.

I don't get it from the pics. They fit 8 sizes, but it looks like they only have 2 "holes" per end.

I've seen the kind that have a wheel on each end, with 4 blind-end sockets each, but this doesn't look like one of those.

Even though I up-voted this deal I have reservations about Craftsman tools. I had been purchasing their tools since I got my first job way back in the...well never mind when but a long time ago. :)

I stopped purchasing them a few years back because of the financial issues Sears was, and is still having. If they go under the ability to utilize the lifetime warranty goes under with them.

There are other companies that have good tools with a lifetime warranty, Snap-On being one of them. While there is no guarantee that any of the other companies are going to be around in the next few years I believe that Sears will be the first to go.

@joemarfice: On the product page it appears that each hole has 2 sizes, one on each side. that conerns me that the grab on a nut or bolt may not be enough if it is slightly stripped. I suppose as is mentioned above, in a pinch it might be nice, but for the real work using a regular socket or wrench might be preferred.

I have one of these, and the way it is designed if you have a stripped head or nut the next size down will likely fit. it def. isnt something that you want to use in place of the right tool but it can be and is useful at times.

@boosturtle: Great idea to have in the glovebox. But for those who drive a non-US-made car, get the metric set, same price: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00932762000P

@dupedyetagain: I agree. Keeping one in the car is a good idea; however, like a comment on sears.com said, the metric wrench doesn't come with the most common sizes, such as 12 and 14, which I use frequently on my car.

I'm wondering if the SAE wrench would work on some metric sizes since they have that universal spline-type pattern. I hate doing that, though, but maybe in a pinch it would fit and hold...
