I bought a Metrinch socket set at Sears in Minneapolis in 2002, i bought it on the 75 percent off rack and it was 25 dollars... I still have the set and it is still perfect. I will not let anyone else use it now because other people end up losing pieces out of of it(i needed to buy 3 replacement pieces).. I love this socket set it is the best one i have owned.. it has never stripped out a nut or a bolt even though intuitively you might think it would because they work on both metric and english nuts and bolts
