I know it isn’t USA, but it’s Taiwan and some people have been asking about cheaper sets. I thought this was a nice deal. They seem to have a no receipt warranty without a lot of this or that, wear and tear, normal use, etc exceptions.

Had a closer look at the ratchets and the best ones I have are that design, fwiw... they don't switch direction on their own, they ratchet easy, they have a lock for the socket or extension, and there's no pesky ball bearings inside that escape when you clean/lube them. Just 2 pawls, 2 springs the selector and the drive.

Add a 1/2" drive ratchet to fix an over-the-road serpentine belt failure and this would be a nice set to put in your vehicle.
Has most of the sizes you need, plus it's cheap enough that no sleep would be lost if it gets stolen.

Stanley tools I’ve had good luck with actually. I’ve found many at the pawn shops that I have gotten just to have as extras and too keep in my truck and beetle. And their warranty is nice too just like Craftsman you don’t need to return the old one to get a replacement by mail. My friend got one of their sets that was a 6 point set well one of the sockets was 12 point so they sent him another free and told him to keep the other one can’t beat that.

That doesn't look good but the only thing I don’t like is in the otherwise very nice case the pieces are too tight or some too loose. What I like is the warranty and the fact I can take it back very easily with no questions. I may just do that since the grocery store I go to for sales sometimes is right next door. No problem. Seems to work very well, don’t have to rush about it.

It took some serious abuse on the switch to move the pin over the pawl. I don’t use tools like that. I looked at the video again, not impressed with the authors and their emotions. It’s a really nice set made in Taiwan the one I got which is not the same set as the one in the demolition video. 😄 $50 for all this is not bad.
