[Canadian Tire] Mastercraft 229 piece socket set - $97.99

Doing some minor car repairs at home and was shopping for a decent set of starter tools. This set fits the bill and is on sale for a pretty good price. Limited lifetime warranty

Not really hot when it goes on sale pretty much every second week and has an inflated price to start with

Good set. The only better deal is the big stanley set when it drops to $90

Don't like these laser etched sockets. Doesn't take much abuse before you can't read them.

I dont understand why all these brands are going with dark colour sockets. Nothing's worse than dropping a socket if you're working on your car at night, or outside.

The price isnt bad for 3 socket sizes; usually they wouldnt give you the 1/2" for 97 piece. But mastercraft tools dont hold up to regular use; i'd pay the extra 20 or 40 for a maximum kit. Granted i use my tools every week.

Buy a new one and return it with the old receipt, problem solved.

I have a similar sized mastercraft set to these, but mine came with a screwdriver type handle (similar to the Stanley you linked). I find it useful to have. Using a screw-type head in a ratchet head is awkward to me, and sometimes doesn't work if you need a longer reach (but I guess you could use an extension?

I keep the set in the back of my car at all times. It's gotten me out of many pinches.

Edit: I still like the OP's kit better. My lugnuts are 19mm, and the smaller sets you posted don't have deep 19mm. Might not be an issue if you just use a tire iron, or have a separate breaker bar set with what you need.

You say that now, but one day you will need a socket you don't have and with you just go the larger set to start with.

I was thinking about it yesterday and I think you're right. I should just go with the bigger set.

Thanks

I usually don't go for these MC sets. This is a decent one with decent specs. I really really don't like the practice of pumping up the number of "tools" with useless allen keys (they are typically craptastic quality) and an array of bits that are seldom used and of dubious quality. Nevertheless, the sockets are okay. The ratchets are not "forever tools" but they can be upgraded when they fail.
