4.0 out of 5 stars
 Not everything is made in the USA. Reviewed in the United States on December 4, 2018



Sticker on the box says made in USA. 7 of the tools are made in Taiwan. 31 say USA. Not sure where the box is made. Good set. I just think if the lable on the box says made in USA the whole set should be made in the USA and not just most of it. Birthday it is still a good set. Holds up to whatever I need it for.
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

The screwdriver handle and bit sockets are from Taiwan I believe. I agree with the comment about them not being 100% honest.

5 bits and the handle make 6. i bet the flexible extension is the 7th . not a bad deal but not 100% honest as said.

Or the breaker bar. It looks suspiciously foreign.

I see the problem with calling it "USA Made", but the fact that the bits are Taiwanese would not matter one way or the other. It's a great set at a great price -- and the pieces that truly count are Snap-On/Williams quality. Were I in need of a set, this would be a "no-brainer".

We've looked at it enough, the algorithm has dropped the price to $137.

Maybe I am just blind, but I can't tell if it is metric or standard.

It's an SAE set -- 5/32"-9/16"
