Dude I told you buy the upper line you get the good tools.. I'm pretty sure the east coast is just as advanced as central USA..... I showed you .... The proof is in the photo..... I have seen the less expensive craftsman without stamping but it doesn't make them any less quality... As for the first set of wrenches I posted? The black steel ones.... they are far from junk and extremely well constructed. You won't break them I guarantee that

I like those , got a few sets , they are tuff - I do a lot of hydaulics and they don't fit in most of the places I 'd like them too , the box side would be great for split flange fittings but it is too thick ---- I have the sockets like that and they are tough as I mentioned it a previous post , all the time I nail them on with a hammer on to rusted and stripped out bolt and impact them and have never had to return one yet

Yeah the width leads much to be desired but they fit anything if you can get them on

The wrench sets that I just bought have "Made in China" right on the boxes. And it's not like it is some different, cheaper line of tools....they look exactly like the older wrenches.

However, I bought a 300-something piece mechanics set sometime last year I think, and it is fine. The ratchets are decent (although I think the forward/reverse switch is wearing out in the 3/8 already...it keeps disengaging and I have to fidget with it), and the sockets are pretty nice. I've used my impact on the sockets a bunch of times with no problem.

I have a set of metric deep Kobalt sockets, and those are really nice. Also have cheapie sets of Harbor Freight impacts which haven't let me down yet either. I think they're like $35 or something for a full set. Pretty good deal for a weekend warrior!

Great post! Thank you. I am about to start a rebuild on a 2004 Honda foreman and then my 2006 Honda Foreman. Many questions to follow I am sure!
