When it comes to having the right tools to the job, there’s no substitution. I learned early on that the quality of the tools you own matter. There’s a lot of tool brands on the market that you can consider. But there’s no other tool sets on the market that come close to matching the quality of a Craftsman tool set.
With that being said, today we’re looking at Craftsman 42 Piece 1/4 and 3/8-inch Drive Bit and Torx Bit Socket Wrench Set.

Craftsman 42 Piece Torx Wrench Set Price
The first thing that caught my attention when I was looking for a torx wrench set was the price. Craftsman is a high quality tool. You know when you buy Craftsman, you’ll have a tool built to last your lifetime. Torx wrench sets are not expensive. But for a Craftsman torx wrench set, I was expecting to pay closer to $100 for the set. Rather, I picked this set up for $42.39. This is a great bargain and one of the main reasons I bought it.
Craftsman Tool Quality Is What You Would Expect
I know a lot of people question the Craftsman 42 piece torx socket wrench set. There’s several reviews that question the authenticity. But I’ve been handling Craftsman tools for years. These are genuine Craftsman tools, I can say that without question. As for the plastic case they come in, that’s a different story. Perhaps that is one reason these Craftsman torx wrenches are cheaper that what most of us would expect. But if you’re buying it for the case, perhaps you should pick something else. As for the tools, they are high quality.
Craftsman Tool Sizing And Accuracy
I also read that some of the sizes were off from others that have bought the Craftsman 42 torx wrench set. I personally tested all of the sizes in this torx wrench set and all sizes were normal. They fit good and snug, and they did the job. I don’t know why others are saying such things, perhaps they have it out for Craftsman. You can’t believe everything you read online for one. If you do see other reviews, check the quality of their website. My staff and I take great price at giving you an honest review on all our product reviews. We list the good, we list the bad. I tried every size and all tools were accurate.
This Tool Set Gives You Versatility
One of the cool things for me with this Craftsman torx wrench set is the versatility. I imagine you’d be buying this wrench set for the same reason, to work on vehicles, trucks, cars, van, ect. I had some calipers to work on myself and the tools do the job. Again, they’re accurate. They fit good and snug, “I hate a tool set that fits loose.” You get this with cheaper brands, but I won’t mention them. In fact, they’re not a company anymore so it doesn’t matter.
You Get What You See
The Craftsman 42 Piece 1/4 and 3/8-inch Drive Bit and Torx Bit Socket Wrench Set is a great one to own, especially for those of you that work on automobiles and trucks. But even if you only work on your vehicles every now and then, this torx bit socket wrench set is great to have when you need it. There’s nothing special about it, it’s just your old basic torx bit socket wrench set, but it does what it was made to do. And that matters.
If you were like me and you saw all the negative reviews, don’t listen. This is a good quality tool set, it’s a genuine Craftsman tool set and the sizes are accurate. Personally, after reading these reviews, I questioned buying it. But for the price, I took a chance. Glad I did, great set to have when working on the vehicles with the boys.
