[Canadian Tire] ($129.99) Stanley Professional Grade 229-pc Socket Set

My brother noticed these in-store; sale prices are also available online.

They also have a 122-piece set for $79.99 and a 274-piece set for $179.99

Saw these in store yesterday. Was so tempted to buy them.

There is a clear 'DO NOT USE WITH POWER TOOLS' label on the box, which kind of threw me off them.

At the Canadian Tire in South Common (Edmonton), there was a Stanley 279 Piece set for $50 more, which seemed like a great deal too. I can't find it online though.

Why would one socket be more appropriate for power tools over another? Aren't they all just solid metal?

Regular sockets can shatter and/or strip bolt heads when used with impact wrenches. There are different alloy and tool profiles needed for use with power tools.

Aren't these 70-75% off every other week at CT?

Does anyone know if there is a socket for sparkplugs in this set ?

Lots of uselesss bits in that package that are better to get in a separate set.

For ~$130 Go with these instead. Non critical items can remain non-impact:

MAXIMUM Impact Socket Set, 48-pc $79.99

AND

Certified General Tool Set, 168-pc $49.99

Guess I'll be testing Canadian Tire's no-receipt, no-packaging return policy. I just bought the deep SAE and Metric impact sockets, but in individual packaging. Would be nice to have those and the regular sockets in 1 container, plus the extras there.

I know Canadian Tire can do a receipt lookup, and I'll gladly take store credit to use towards this 48-piece set.

good price, but original price is way too high… Overflated prices? IMHO not a real 70% OFF… By the way, never ever buy any tools at regular price at CT

CT is always having 50-75% off sales on lots of over-inflated prices. That’s the way they operate.

I don’t see a problem using these with power tools for times you start with a breaker and end with a torque wrench, otherwise ya, get impact sockets.

Is it just me, or does that set look like junk with an even higher ratio of useless pieces? It only includes one ratchet and it doesn't say if it is a 3/8" or 1/2" drive. If it's 3/8 then I don't think it will even work with the impact sockets you listed. Personally I'd like to have 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" ratchets in my set - they are all useful.
