Probably about what they're worth, honestly. These aren't your grandpa's Craftsmen.

That being said, the set looks decent, and at this price the value is there, good deal OP.

It was one of the things that was stripped from the Sears carcass, or at least the IP was. From what I understand, small hardware shops MAY have old stock of the good stuff, but all the big box places selling "Craftsman" are selling typical Chinesium and marking it up due to the name.

Don't forget for email signup coupon to get extra $10 off
PSA: you can usually get signup coupon from this range: LLP-0023xxxxx (replace xxxxx with random 5 numbers) Might need a couple of tries to get a code.

(if using shipping option then you need to top up to $49+ to get free shipping)

My favorite thing about all of these types of kits is that they would be ~10 pieces and not ~100 pieces if they didn't count the screw driver tips haha.

They're owned by Stanley/black and decker. Expect similar quality to Stanley's hand tools.

Grandpa's Craftsman was only good because back then you had Snap On, SK, and a couple other "pro" brands (priced accordingly, meaning making eye watering monthly payments), and then you had ultra crap stuff made off shore. Craftsman hand tools filled a niche between the 'pro' and the junk, plus they replaced tools that broke.
Nowadays, unless you are buying no name sockets and drivers at some sketchy flea market, the quality is generally good. Princess Auto and Mastercraft products are probably on par, if not better than, old Craftsman.

I have a larger Craftsman set I picked up a couple years ago, also on clearance from Lowes. I have nothing bad to say about it (other than the weird smell of the blow molded case).

This is an okay price, but the set does lack a 1/2" driver and sockets. If you want to work on your vehicle, you will need those.

For sockets, close enough not to matter. For the ratchet driving them, not even close in my experience. There's slop right out of the box with new CT/princess stuff, and they're designed to be disposable. Not that it matters, I guess.
