Craftsman 12 Point Combination Wrench

I bought a set of these more out of curiosity than anything else, but I was quite pleased. I was trying to remove a nut off of the top of a strut tower that had bed liner sprayed on the threads. My old 8 point wrench would only go so far and it was starting to round off the sides of the nut. I put one of these on the nut and was able to get the nut off with no slippage. That was using a 12" cheater bar to get the nut all the way off.

They are made in the USA, and are well built. I bought mine at the local hardware store.

Nice! Quality is still pretty good on some of the craftsman tools.

i use alot of craftsman basic tools (sockets and wrench) everyday. the true craftsman stuff (not evol) still holds up well.

Picked a set of those at the flea market the other week
Metric, and standard.
Haven't had a chance to try them out yet, so glad to see they work!

I'd be interested in giving those a shot...looks like they have more grip/biting power than the typical 12pt that have triangulated notches. I'm still a craftsman/kobalt guy...for the hobby work I do...I they've always done what I needed.

I've got something like that in the Snap-On version; they can be handy every now and then.

Made in the USA???

Our local Westlake Hardwares (ACE distributors) started carrying Craftsman a few years ago.

Didn't they have a pretty bad wrap the last 5-7 years with Chinese made stuff?

Yeah...quality did drop off...but I don't think they ever went to 100% Chinese production. Didn't really bug me much, if something broke, use the warranty. It was when they started changing their warranty policies that I started transitioning to Kobalt.

Craftsman has been a crap shoot the several years. It seems to be improving. Several years ago, I bought a 3/8 ratchet at Sears that lasted about 3 months before the ratchet mechanism gave out. I returned it to Sears for a replacement and the cashier put the ratchet into a box full of returned ratchet wrenches, and offered me a refurbished one. He said, "You don't want another new one, trust me".......
