This extendable ratchet provides 4 locking positions to get at nuts and bolts from a distance! Features include a TPR handle for improved grip and comfort as you work and the durable chrome vanadium steel construction stays tough at heavy torque.
This handy extendable ratchet is great for mechanics working on engines and transmissions with hard-to-reach nuts and bolts!.
If you are like me and ratchet away at nuts and bolts often, you’ll find that fixed length ratchets often don’t allow you to gain the right amount of leverage for the particular piece you are trying to remove/tighten.
Bigger ratchets have the issue of being simply too large to fit in tight spaces, and you end up being stuck, especially if your arms aren’t that built like mine. This thing is a must have for your home garage.
It makes removing stubborn bolts and nuts a breeze without making a fuss. The thin handle does make me question it’s longevity, but at this price, I can’t complain, cause it saved me so much time removing seized and rusted nuts and bolts.
I’m taking a star off because of this and the fact that the head is double duty side, which, while nice, sometimes gets in the way of tight spaces. But, overall, it works wonderfully.
I never write reviews so I will be brief. Saw this extending ratchet for sale at the checkout and bought it on a whim. Last weekend I did a brake job on the minivan and I could not believe how useful this tool was.
It extends nicely and is built strong enough that I didn’t need a beaker bar. Then the extending handle will adjust so you can get a good swing within the wheel well without having to change handles.
It’s a real timesaver. So far I have done a few projects with it and have not had any pre-mature loosening and slop like I have in some of my other inexpensive ratchets. Will be getting a second for the other toolbox and perhaps the 1/2in too.
The magnetic sweeper provides 50 lbs. of magnetic pull plus a one-pull release to quickly clear debris. The handle extends from 30 in. to 44-1/2 in. Extra-wide sweep head for quick clean upWorks on hard surfaces and low carpetsOne-pull release quickly clears debris from sweeper50 lb.

Sounds like the difference is about 8″, right? And when looking at the website, it appears the height can be adjusted on the 22″ model, but not on the 30″ model. And it sounds like the 30″ is much, much more powerful too.
Well, I researched this on the Internet, including YouTube videos and comments, and even asked some of the YouTube reviewers. No one could tell me for sure if those differences were accurate. I asked the people at my store.
No one was able to help me. So, I bought models and took them home to my shop to check it for myself. And let me tell you, I am glad I did, because what is stated on the website is misleading. And there is a LOT of incorrect information on the Internet from several reviewers.
First off, the 22″ sweeper #98399 is 22″ only when you measure it from the outside edge of one rubber wheel to the other. But the aluminum box part of the sweeper that actually does the work on #98399 is only 17 3/4″ long and contains four magnets.
On the other hand, the 30″ sweeper #93245 is 35″ when you measure it from the outside edge of one rubber wheel to the other. And the aluminum box part of the sweeper that actually does the work on #93245 is 30″ long and contains six magnets.
So from the perspective of total physical length (important if you are trying to maneuver in tight places), #93245 is 13″ longer than #983995. However, from the perspective of picking up as much material as fast as possible in open areas (like a wide driveway or long walkways), the magnetic sweep area provided by the aluminum body of #93245 is 12 1/4″ wider than #93245 and contains 50% more magnets (6 vs.
4). Regarding the “9 lbs magnetic pull” of #98399 versus the “50 lbs. magnetic pull” of #93245, it is my opinion that these “magnetic pull” numbers is more marketing than anything else. While #93245 certainly contains more magnets and can pick up more material faster than #98399 due mainly to its larger size, it does not feel significantly more magnetically powerful when it actually picks up said material.
And when clearing it after loading each unit with hundreds and hundreds of nuts and bolts, I did not feel that #93245 required 50 lbs. of effort on my part versus only 9 lbs for #98399. Bottom line, I would not make my decision base on the “magnetic pull” figures at all.
In terms of being able to adjust the height of the wheels, even though only #98399 mentions it on the website, I found that BOTH #98399 and #93245 have the same 7″ wheels and BOTH have the ability to move each wheel axle up or down via a slot where the axle enters the aluminum box, allowing for adjustable ground clearance from 1″in.
to 2-1/8″. In other words, there is NO DIFFERENCE in height adjust-ability or wheel size between the two models. A minor difference I found is the handle length. The website states that there is a 6 1/2″ difference in handle length between the two.
This is simply not true with the sweepers that I purchased and measured, the difference is trivial (under 1″) in my opinion. #93245 does have a nicer knob on the screw that tightens the upper portion of the handle to the lower when it is extended though.
And the handle attaches to the aluminum box via two metric bolts on #93245 as compared to one bolt with a wing nut on #98399. I felt that the two bolt attachment was more robust than the single bolt.
By the way, these sweepers only come with one washer for each wheel axle. I would recommend a washer on the inside and outside of each wheel to improve the steadiness, so think about adding two washers on your own.
All in all, these are BOTH a good value for the money if you want a non-commercial-duty magnetic sweeper that won’t break the bank (if you need a commercial unit, look into the AJC 070RMS, $160). It just depends whether or not you need a more compact sweeper to fit into tight places.
If you do, the smaller #98399 might be perfect for you. Otherwise, if like me, you want to cover more open area faster, splurge for the extra $5 or so and get #93245. You will cover more ground much faster because #93245 is physically 70% larger and contains 50% more magnets.
I hope someone finds this information helpful in making the right decision the first time.
Let me bign by saying I would ONLY recommend this IF you are willing to do whats necessary to fix the issues I found. TO WIT: Three issues thus far: 1- Lousy design using threaded rods as “axles” for plastic hub/bearing surface wheels.
2- It would have been nice to have some sort of lock to hold the magnet in the down position, so that the unit could be lifted by the release handle, as being 3 ft wide, it’s rather clumsy to pick up by the pull/handle or the wheels, especially when it gets “loaded” with debris.
3- axle attachment plates are SO thin that even with care, I stripped out many of the “threads” for the fasteners holding the axle mount plates to the aluminum body/frame. I ended up epoxying nuts to the inside of the plates to correct this issue.
Upon opening the box, I was disappointed to find full-threaded bolts being used as the axle, especially so regarding the area where the plastic wheels ride. In VERY short order, the threads chewed up the bearing surface of the wheels, making the wheels wobble and allow the device to get closer to the ground, necessitating pulling it apart to “adjust the height a few times.
FINALY in frustration, I took it back apart, drilled the wheels to clean up the mess, then replaced the so-called axles, with NON-threaded bolts, and fabricated a set of wheel bushing sleeves to take up the slack.
I SHOULD have returned it when I saw the threaded “axles”, but wanted to get the area cleaned up ASAP, so ended up doing my own re-work. It’s finally “fixed” enough to be useful, without worrying about having to fixit it every time I use it.
IF you’re handy with tools, and willing to correct/rebuild some of the deficiencies, it does a decent job of picking up debris that could poke a tire, or bare feet.
Easy to assemble. Very strong magnet with a quick, effective release. Well made, but designed not so well. My only complaint is that the wheels are too small making it difficult to use in grass, which is primarily what I wanted it for.
After a recent re-roofing job, It worked great pushing it around in the driveway, sidewalk, deck, and garage floor, but I had to pull it, rather than push it, through the grass where I found most of the nails and staples left by the roofers.
The small wheels just makes it too low to the lawn. For me, not being able to easily use it on the lawn defeats the purpose. After all, I have a push broom that is fairly effective picking up debris on hard surfaces and again, it was the grass around the house I was concerned about.
I’ll go back to harbor freight and purchase a couple of slightly larger wheels, and see if that helps.
This super heavy-duty service wrench set is a classic farmer’s style service wrench set with narrow heads for access to tight spots. Made of drop forged, machined, heat treated and chrome plated chrome vanadium steel, this service wrench set offers top-notch performance and durability.
Got these for a hydraulic line emergency rescue. I think I would rather have the crow’s foot wrenches , but HF doesn’t have large ones. For service wrenches, these are actually nicer than most of the ones you get with equipment.
I could learn to hate their storage box because the wrenches are loose running around inside because the little holder bars come loose (not knocking a star off for it). These are a break-out in case of emergency tool for me, they are metric wrenches after all , but I don’t like using the thin handles unless I need them.
Finally found a set at my local store. No more having to borrow my coworkers. I use these almost daily working on garbage trucks. Definitely a must have if in the diesel mechanic field. Gets into tight places regular wrenchs wont.
Can use a cheater pipe to make them longer if needed. Hold up to daily use great.
This high quality mechanic’s tool set includes the most used automotive and mechanic’s wrenches, pliers, ratchets, sockets and drivers in SAE and metric sizes. Constructed of durable chrome vanadium, this mechanic’s tool set is built to last.
Includes a custom storage case to keep tools organized and protected.
This ratcheting breaker bar is made of heavy duty chrome vanadium and features left/right reversible ratcheting action for the torque of a breaker bar with the speed and convenience of a ratchet! The rugged 36-tooth ratchet locks in place for use as a traditional breaker and the ratchet head swivels 180 degrees.
I’ve blown out ratchet/pawls on cheaper wrenches in the past. This one seems to have larger pawls, and distinct clicks. It means a couple more degrees per click which could be a problem in tight places.
But, I had some long u-bolts that were a struggle, and the wrench performed admirably. Of course, I’ve only used it a few times, but it is worth trying out if you need high torque ratcheting.
Working on the brakes of my vehicle I needed a little more power. I purchased this since I do not have a breaker bar and due to it’s ratcheting action. With a little penetrant and the breaker bar those tough bolts were no match.
I have only one criticism. The handle could have a knurl pattern turned on it for a better grip. Past that it was just fine.
I had broke a 3/8 breaker bar trying to tighten down my lug nuts and broke that one after 3 heavy uses. I indeed make the wrong use of that breaker bar as this 1/2 had no problem tightening down my wheels.
As I dont have a torque wrench this at least insures me I tighten them down as best guesstimate as I normally do and have not had and issue. The ratcheting portion if your not paying attention can unsettle itself while trying to tighten bolts in my case lug nuts.
You simple have to readjust it and reinsert socket into bolt and or lug nut. Awesome breaker works well with the deep metric sockets from the company as well.
This double head ratchet wrench lets you use 1/4 in, 3/8 in. sockets with one compact ratchet handle. Constructed of rugged chrome vanadium steel, this ratchet wrench handles even the most stubborn and corroded nuts and bolts with ease.
So I have two of these type ratchets, One I’d bought quite some time ago, which is the long flex head version, and recently this shorty non-flex version. These would easily be a 10/10 recomend, save for one detail, their quality.
Specifically this new shorty I acquired has a MUCH grittier rachet mechanism compared to My older flex version. Being a shorter tool exacerbates this issue. Despite the sorta chincy feel of them they are still the FIRST ratchets I grab outta a dozen or more I own.
C’mon Harbor Freight, PLEASE build a top quality ICON edition ratchet of this design and form that is top quality!!.
I wouldn’t say this is a replacement for two ratchets, but it does work. The reason it’s gimmicky is that it, and two sets of sockets, aren’t much smaller than 2 ratchets and 2 sets of sockets, and you can’t use this tool to take a nut off a bolt without another wrench, so you lose more than you gain by just having a single ratchet.
But I’ve used it as a ‘third ratchet’ in a toolbag, and the fact it can take either size socket is useful. As long as you know what you’re getting, I think you’ll be satisfied with the tool.
For a car/travel bag, this is a two-in one ratchet that is both 1/4″ and 3/8″. The quality is surprisingly good with highly polished chrome without imperfections. I assume that the Pittsburgh PRO series is a higher quality than the base label.
The clicks are smooth and plentiful, 72 teeth, I believe. The really useful feature is that it is so much thinner than a standard Craftsman/Snap-on ratchet. Sometimes you need all the advantages that you can.
The only negative is that the direction control switch is small and a little stubborn; perhaps it will lap in over time. However, most ratchets that have a larger switch are susceptible to accidental movement and this will not have that issue.
This tool bag is big enough to hold your most-needed tools, compact enough to keep with you at all times. The tool bag features an easy opening, 15 in. wide mouth, along with ample inside and outside pockets.
It is constructed from heavy duty polyester fabric with ballistic nylon trim.
I went Harbor to get an inch smaller tool bag and decided to buy the 12″ Voyager instead. It has a lot more room then you might expect. The Solid bottom stabilizes the bag & balances out load, both loading and carrying.
It has larger inside pockets on one side and smaller pockets on the other side, inside the bag. Theres various storage pockets inside on both ends. I was most impressed by the strength stitched in to assure you can put some weight in there and the canvas handles are not going to rip off until the bottom falls out & I cant see that happening.
It has outside pockets like most tool satchels and I dont know how long the plastic sewn in long top zipper will last if over packed or zipped when theres no way to close it without a little muscle & and a lot of strain on it.
Don’t read me wrong, the zippers a huge plus, I just recomend treating it like it’s on your windbreaker just to be sure. Theres a tremendous amount of pressure when lifting by the handles when its overfilled & that to might cause zipper fatigue.
I hope I’m just airing on the side of caution, the nylon size appropriate zipper may be indestructible. I’ve only had mine a couple weeks & if I don’t repeat old habits of overloading, this prime deal Voyager tool bag will last forever.
Holds a large payload of multiple calibur ammo, magazines, gun tools, spare parts along with back up reflex sights and hand held telescope to look down range. Oh, laser & reticle batteries and last but not least, gun oil, cleaning kits for a variety of gun calibers and bore snakes tucked inside of one of the end pockets.
I’ve had near 35lbs of ammo & hardware onboard and its sturdy! Like I said, I came for a smaller bag, but this one had more bang for the buck. Did I mention they gave it to me? Well practically, as it was under 10.
My weirdo son is currently staffing all summer at a summer camp and using this bag as his “manly” shower kit/bag. He said that he didn’t want to use what he had last year, and we specifically went to the store to find something more befitting.
Pricewise it is still a good deal even if it only lasts one year, if only to ensure that his “manliness” is intact. He did tell me that other staff members saw it and said that they now wanted to get one.
Perhaps he is starting a trend and you will soon see these at gyms/pools/dorms everywhere. If this happens, may I suggest some drainage grommets on the bottom. He did also get one for his metalworking tools, but where is the fun in that.
These are great bags; my husband uses them as well.
With a top surface suitable to fit most bench grinders, this grinder stand has mounting slots to fit most bench grinders. Constructed from heavy gauge steel, the grinder stand stands firmly in place with vibration-resistant rubber feet.
When I assembled this grinder stand there were three metric machine screws missing. The carton the stand came in had not been opened, so the missing screws were never in there, and this was an error at the factory where it was packed.
This seems to be a common problem when buying from Harbor Freight. Luckily, I had some metric screws on hand that I could substitute. Once assembled, the stand is very sturdy and the two slots provided for bolting down my DeWalt 8” grinder fit perfectly.
The instructions recommend bolting the stand to the floor, but there are rubber feet that slip onto the angle iron legs, and no way to actually bolt it down. This isn’t that much of a problem, as the stand is very sturdy, has broad legs and is not easily tipped over or moved by vibrations.
In summary, I really like this stand, but just be aware that missing hardware is a problem often encountered when purchasing products from Harbor Freight.
This swivel head rotates a total of 270 degrees to accommodate a wider range of angles than standard ratchets. This reversible swivel head ratchet has a cushioned rubber handle for comfort and heavier torque application.
High quality made in Taiwan ratchet. Same as ones sold under Tekton, Kobalt, etc. but for less. Comfortable molded handle, smooth 72 tooth mechanism. Holds my made in USA Craftsman sockets tightly with no slop.
I should have added a roto-head ratchet decades ago! Would have saved me a lot of swearing. 🙂 A roto-head allows you to place pressure upon the socket whereas a swivel-head would flop over. Also, the handle can be rotated to spin the fastener or spark plug quickly like a screwdriver.
This wrench makes getting at difficult to reach fasteners easier. I like that it positively clicks into tighten and loosen modes. The detent ball is tight enough to keep sockets and extensions in place.
I like that it swivels making it work like a screwdriver for removing loosened fasteners. Overall a good design with good ergonomics. The only part I have some concerns about is the handle. It is very comfortable to use, but I wonder how long the rubber and plastic will last in a greasy and solvent covered work environment.
As I’m not a professional mechanic I can take time to make sure my tools are properly cleaned after each job. I foresee this lasting a long time. That said I do recognize that it is a 1/4 inch ratchet and should not be used for breaking loose stuck fasteners.
If you keep that in mind you should have no problems with this tool.
I got this to add to my ratchet arsenal. It is very handy and seems quite strong and durable. I like the pivoting head so I can break the fastener, then straighten out the ratchet and use it like a ratcheting screwdriver.
The ball detent holds the socket securely and the quick release button lets the socket go readily but is not easily pressed by accident. Overall, this is a great ratchet that should be handy for getting into odd places and using like a ratcheting screwdriver on 1/2 inch drive sockets.
I’m a mover. I bought these mostly for taking beds apart that have drawers in the footboard. The last thing I wanted to do was add more weight to a 40lb bag. I already have a wrench wrap of full sized wrenches and you may get a quarter turn with them.
I’ve driven myself crazy for years now fighting with these types of beds, until now. I finally broke down and grabbed a set of these from HF. I don’t need a set that will be beat on day after day. I don’t need a ratcheting set of stubbys either.
I had one of those beds today, and the stubbys did the job quick quick. My life has been made easier on the cheap, and with a handy dandy carrying case to boot. Can’t beat it.
Amazing a store can sell a set of open end (&12 point) chromed wrenches for 8 dollars. Purchased a few sets for the metric size. Have many older SAE tools but the home garage was short on metric sizes.
Purchased for DIY automobile repairs (2000 Mercedes C230 & 2003 SLK230 specifically) They’ve performed flawlessly on the few maintenance repairs I have made. Packages marked Made in India, the quality is good to very good.
Nursing along an old Royal Enfield Bullet 500 single-cylinder Indian-built motorcycle, one of your challenges is not to over-torque and thereby strip its often dodgy nuts, bolts and other fasteners that are an odd mix of metric and SAE.
There’s little danger of that with these stubbies. With these and a little drop of that Medium Threadlock No. 42 (Item 65192) everything gets hoinked down “just so” and stays put. Another thing that’s great about this wrench kit is its handy and sturdy little clip-shut carrying case, one side for metric and the other for ‘Murican.
No more fishing around in the tool box for that elusive 10 mm. And they’re not badly finished either. pretty as any Craftsman or Snap-On, but for less than a buck a tool. With a lifetime warranty, what’s not to like?.
This ratcheting combination wrench set is color coded for easy size identification and designed to handle heavy use. The rugged chrome vanadium steel with chrome plating and a high polish finish for added durability.
Each ratcheting wrench features 12 point ratcheting box ends for quick, smooth ratchet action.
I have only had my wrench set a couple of weeks and am currently a maintenance technician. It’s not my usual brand. I have yet to decide what my preference is and if the quality, power or durability will live up to their purpose at work.
I do however like the colors and the ability for quick reference, the ratchet ability, as well as the feel of the tools in my hands. I am a 50 year old, female, Industrial Electrician and Maintenance Technician who also owns a Handyman business.
The price was great for what I am hoping will prove to be a worthy value as things develop and if they keep up then I will continue to purchase.
I just bought these a couple of weeks ago and already most of the coloring has been worn off of the jaw-ends, and the 12mm’s ratcheting end exploded while I was working on my suspension, shooting tiny bits of ratchet all over my hub, at least one of which is caught and now my hub makes horrible metal scraping noises til I can disassemble the whole thing and find the stupid shard of broken wrench.
On 2 others in this set I’ve already bent the jaws wide enough that they’re effectively unusable. While the color coding IS super handy, these wrenches are only appropriate for light-duty tasks. REALLY wanted to like these, too bad.
Color coded wrench makes it easier to find the right wrench. This set was extra cheap because it was conveniently missing the 10mm wrench already! Sure saving me the time and expense of losing it myself! Seriously this is a decent home-gamer set, and the packaging even has an ok wrench holder/organizer if you decide to keep it.
This propane torch includes three interchangeable tips that let you solder, thaw, sweat pipes and heat large surfaces! The propane torch set includes the torch, three burners, a 3/4 in. torch nozzle, a 7/8 in.
brazing tool for copper pipes, a 1-1/2 in. flat burner, a soldering tool, a hose and an instruction manual.
A very nice set, that comes with two very nice unadvertised bonuses. It comes with a nice carrying case, which if you remove the foam rubber, is large enough to hold everything needed to use it, except the gas cylinder.
It also comes with a base to hold the cylinder. The hose is too short to use if you’re standing and you want to leave the gas cylinder on the floor, and the base doesn’t weigh enough to keep the cylinder in one place while operating the torch with its stiff hose.
These main inconveniences are likely to come with any set up of its kind so they were not unexpected. The torch worked flawlessly, and even though it probably is not recommended, I used it with MAP gas when I wanted a hotter flame.
Needed to solder 3/4 inch copper pipes for a new hot water heater. This kit has both a powerful torch, as well as two other fittings, one which fits around 1/2 inch copper pipes (Might do a 3/4 tube but seemed to bind on mine) to give a great heat source to solder the joint.
The long gas tube allowed moving the torch relatively more freely. Only problem was the propane tubing is somewhat stiff. meaning not only is it somewhat difficult to pinpoint the flame around the circle of the copper pipe, but the bottle of propane at the end can fall over or add resistance to movement of the torch.
In my application I used only the torch to sweat the 3/4 inch copper pipes.
This telescoping magnetic pickup tool makes it easy to retrieve out-of-reach items. Extending from 7-1/2″ to over 29-1/2″, this pickup tool with 3/4″ diameter head features a strong magnet that holds tight onto items weighing up to 15 lbs.
Lightweight, durable steel handle with a foam comfort grip for easy operation and control.
I have two of these, just to keep one at hand. No matter how careful you are, sooner or later you’ll drop a bolt inside your engine bay, and this tool is by far the best way to retrieve them. It collapses down to about 6 inches, and it’s very stable when extended.
The magnet is almost too powerful, sometimes it sticks to metal as you’re probing for a bolt. But it is a genuinely indispensable tool for any auto mechanic. So so much better than raising the car to look for the bolt underneath.
And even if the bolt falls to the floor, just sweep this tool beneath the car and you’ll get the bolt. The quality is outstanding; you don’t need an Icon or Snap-On label for something like this.
The literature says that this magnetic tool has a 15 lb capacity. That may be, if you lift straight up. but there’s no way that it will support 15 lbs hanging off the end of the device out at 90 degrees.
The extendable wand is too flimsy. So, while I’m happy. I’m just not impressed. Of course, I didn’t buy it to lift 15 lbs. so for me that’s not really an issue. I do recommend this tool for picking up nuts and bolts, and the occasional dropped tool, but not for 15 lb items.
No I haven’t tried to pick up a 15 lb item. If you buy one, you’ll see why I don’t recommend it for this amount of weight. Hope this helps. Have a nice day.
I’m going straight to the one exception I mentioned in my headline. I’d love to see telescopic tools that have interchangeable heads. This means the head would screw off and allow something different to be placed at the telescopic end.
While the magnet is great to pick up nuts and bolts and screws and nails, a different head that could retrieve rubber washers or plastic fasteners or plastic wall anchors as well as back scratcher heads.
I can think of other possibilities too, but for the one task that this is meant to do, it’s a great tool.

I’ve had this for several months now, and it has worked well. I’ve screwed and unscrewed quite a few things, and this has been more than up to the task every time. If you’re looking for something with tons of bells and whistles, this would be a terrible option.
It’s a $2 screwdriver, it runs on raw manpower and wrist strength. It has survived being thrown across the room after stripping out screws, it has survived my dogs mistaking it for a rawhide, it’s survived being used as a hammer.
it might just be indestructible, but I personally wouldn’t test that theory. For less than most fast food value menu items these days, you get a working screwdriver. so buy it, or don’t buy it, I’m just a random person on the internet, it’s your life.
If you’ve read this far into a review about a cheap screwdriver you are a far better person than myself.
When on sale, the price can’t be beat (compare to other brands at 3-4 times the cost or more). I have MANY of these that I purchase with coupons. The quality of the bits are great. The handle isn’t my favorite – not a fan of the soft grip feel.
But here’s the cool part. The bit and stem fit other brands of 4-1 screw drivers. And this one is tactfully a 6-1. You have 4 bits, PLUS 2 hex drivers (take out the bit). So since the bits/stems fit my other brand screwdrivers (Husky & Ace) I can replace my old chewed up bits for a mere $0.
99 rather than a whole new screwdriver at $7 or more for the other brands. And since my other screw drivers are only 5-1 (4 bits and hex) these are actually better. I don’t know why the other brands use the same size hex holder for each of their bits, but this one uses a small hex for the small bit and a larger one for the larger bit.
Makes sense !! So you have 4 screwdriver sizes and 2 nut drivers all in 1. I buy the maximum of 4 at a time using the coupons – and so I don’t mind tossing out the handles and just keep the stems with bits – although I have several that I kept whole and they work fine too.
I love all of my multi-use screwdrivers and years ago which I could find an inexpensive way to replace just the bits which get worn over time, but the handle and stem remain in good condition. So when I found this screwdriver at the Harbor Freight price, I said to myself “problem solved”.
This is one of the simplest Best tools I’ve ever owned and I have a lot of tools!! This is a actual replacement for the same, as first one fell of deck and lost pieces I thought. Of course found those pieces right after bought the new one.
How many times do you have one screw driver and wish you took the other one. This solves that problem 90% of the time! Changes out bits from one to the other in a second. The large handle is great for getting things tight or loose.
Get one for the car. the kitchen drawer, and the tool chest. It’s that handy!! Haven’t tried the new one, but hoping bits are of the same quality metal!.
This complete screwdriver set includes slotted, Phillips, square and star drive tips to accommodate most screw driving tasks! Each of these screwdrivers is constructed with a chrome vanadium steel shaft and magnetic tips for convenience when working.
Features include a ribbed cushioned grip to give total control and comfort during operation, making this a great set of screwdrivers for jobs at the workshop or around the house!.
I’ve had these for over a year now because the rest of the family kept losing my other screwdrivers, hoping for a wide variety to ensure I had something that would work when I needed it. Unfortunately, they are for light duty only.
They don’t stand up to even easy DIY work. I’m talking put in a screw into predrilled pine. I’ve had at leas two of the phillipshead ends chip, deform, or bend. The molds used for the plastic handles don’t align with each other, leaving a sharp ridge at the seam.
This digs into your palm when applying any real pressure. Having the hex shape just above the handle would help for using a wrench to turn the screwdrivers if needed, but the quality of the metal is so poor that I fear they would break before any real torque could be applied.
This screwdriver set seemed to have a lot going on; but, I am still not sure of how well it will hold up over time. I purchased the set to replace a driver set where the driver tip no longer grip the screw tightly to maintain grip without slipping.
The handle seems awkward but it did the expected job. I like that the driver is magnetic and the lifetime warranty outweighs my concerns over whether the handle will last.
This toolbox features heavy duty, weather-resistant construction with a smooth finish. Clear lids allow you to view the contents of your toolbox without opening it – great for use with fasteners, fishing tackle, and craft supplies.
I bought my first box years ago for toolbox for my RC cars. Still works great. My second I use to store my RC Blade 230s helicopter and helicopter parts. Still working great. I bought my 3 box for my oscillator tool and blades.
Works great. I just bought my 4th box for my 20v reciprocating saw and blades. Works great. Now I need one more for my 41/2″ grinder and cut off and grinder wheels. I wrote on the out side what is in the box.
The one thing I don’t like is they just raised the price from $7 up to $11. What’s that 70% increase in price. Not happy about that amount of price greed. I will have to think about one for my grinder now.
That to bad. The price is what I bought the first 3 for.
You simply can’t beat this toolbox for the money. Needless to say, it wouldn’t last a week loaded down with 30lbs of wrenches and bouncing around the back of a pickup truck, but it works beautifully to hold / organize my tools sitting in my closet.
At 19”, it’s long enough to hold a standard hammer and my back saw along with plenty of space for miscellaneous wrenches, screwdrivers, a can of WD-40, a roll of duct tape, a couple 5-min epoxy syringes, etc.
The little trays on top of the lid are ok, but the corresponding lid isn’t tight enough to keep small items from moving into the other compartments when you open the main toolbox; so avoid putting small items in there.
Got this to house my RV tools. The clear top with tiny compartments is nice for grabbing small items used alot, but not big enough for screwdrivers. So they fixed that with a top tray when you open the lid.
Great for small hand tools like screw drivers, pliers, etc. Except the handle has a big gaping hole that leads into the bottom box, so all those small hand tools slip in there and fall through, so you end up digging for them anyway.
At least they are still in the box. Oh yeah, when you lift the opt tray out, they usually slip through the hole then onto the ground, so not so good. Not something a pro would use, but still perfect for the small jobber or RVer out there who just needs to hold some tools.
This angle grinders powerful 15 amp motor gives it the power to tackle tough metal cutting, shaping and slag removal jobs. Features include an all ball and roller bearing construction for durability and tool-free adjustable guard.
Only used it twice. But, for what I needed, I think this will work fine. It does stall easily when put under a moderate load and, when not at full speed. It stays put and doesn’t slide around while running or polishing.
I used to polish a few tool’s initially and its a good bench grinder for the price. The attachment “dremel style” to the grinder works as well as the quality of the attached tip you are using. I have it in a work room in my house and for small projects.
The variable speed is ok. The slower the setting the easier the stall. Overall I am satisfied with the product for the price I paid. Lacks 1 star for the stall issue.
Made of durable chrome vanadium steel, this ratcheting combination wrench set has a generous 5 degree turning radius for working in tight areas. The fixed side features a 15 deg. offset head for better access.
The wrench set comes with a custom storage case to keep your wrenches organized.
This set is awesome and is set at a great price. The ratcheting feature is great and gets the job done faster. The ease of use is just fantastic. The warranty is an added bonus and without that I would probably not buy this set.
The wrenches have failed on me many times over already. I have 2 sets of these and the 10 12 13 and 14 are my most used wrenches and they are the most failed wrenches as well. I’ve had to swap them out many times.
That said, they are so easy to replace that I’m usually at HF anyway or it gives me a good excuse to go. In comparison, I HAVE purchased another set from another company with a lifetime warranty that is more reputable.
None have failed thus far and the set is comprehensive from 8-19mm. That set starts with an H and ends with an usky. That said, I still love this set and despite its downfalls I still recommend this set from HF.
The wrenches are cheap enough that I don’t mind lending them out should they not be returned immediately or at all.
I bought a set of four of these wrenches. The ratchet on one of the wrenches fell apart after a brief period of normal use. I tried a warranty exchange, but the set of four bought was no longer available and I had to buy a seven piece set.
I paid the difference between the two sets. The warranty exchange went smoothly other than that. I hope that when one of the wrenches in this new set breaks, that I am able to replace the set I have without having to spend more money.
The cashier at the store was, of course, completely indifferent to my having to spend more money to have the “lifetime warranty” honored. I expect that these wrenches will break again.
Haven’t used this set yet, but I’m sure it will be adequate for my needs. My sole purpose in buying this set was for the 17mm wrench. I own a Stanley wrench set I’ve had for years, but unfortunately it contains an 18mm in place of the 17.
(I noticed while in the store that one of the HF wrench sets is the same way. ) Most of my work is on older motorcycles, and 17mm is a common size. I don’t think my 18mm has ever been used! The reason I rated this set as a 4 instead of a 5, is that there are some inherent deficiencies/tradeoffs in this type wrench.
More expensive wrenches have a lever to change direction, like a ratchet. These work in only one direction, so to switch directions you must remove the wrench and turn it over. Because of this, the wrench must be made flat instead of having an offset.
The offset can be a big advantage in certain cases. Here’s another aspect for consideration, though seldom encountered. You’re backing out a fairly stiff fastener and realize you’ve got the wrench “trapped”, not enough room to get it off the fastener.
You have to tighten the bolt some to get the wrench off, but the wrench doesn’t work in that direction! D’oh! Food for thought.
Each of these 4 adjustable wrenches features a 4-sided jaw for better fit and greater strength as you work. Double-dipped matte grips let you work longer in more comfort. Hardened and precision-ground flat nose, with tapered heads for easy access.
Face it, adjustable wrenches for $4 each. somethings gotta give. Adjustment is kind of flaky, shifty. Most good wrenches use a screw to hold the knurled adjuster so backlash can be adjusted. These are plugged with a pressed in rod.
Hence the difficulty in eliminating backlash. They’ll work with patience, but they’re not for serious work. On the plus side, the rubber handle is comfortable.
Anyone giving these 1-2 stars are being extremely unreasonable. I use mine all the time, and the 4 sizes overlap nicely so I only ever need this set to loosen/tighten something. Grips are comfortable and adjustment is just as sensitive as any other adjustable wrench.
The only way they could be better is to be a bit slimmer to fit in tighter areas.
The tolerances of the manufacturing of these adjustable wrenches is not good. There is a lot of movement in the jaws even when you tighten directly on the nut or bolt head. May perform ok for some light duty applications but these wrenches are low quality.
