Northern Industrial Drive Tool Accessories - 17-Pc. Set
A decent set... if you want wobbles
A decent set of extensions and knuckles, though I really wish I had noticed that there were wobble extensions mixed in. The straight ones (no wobble) all perform well and the wobbles do ok if you're only using a ratchet, but I'd never trust the wobbles with either a breaker bar or an impact gun. As far as value goes, you'd be hard pressed to find more tools for less money.

Excellent except for ONE thing...
This is a great selection of adapters, extensions, and universal joints-especially for the price! I don't use these with an impact gun (unlike some reviewers here)-just ratchets. The chrome is beautiful, and the knurled grips on the extensions are very handy. Like I said, only 1 flaw. The 1/4 extensions (since these are both wobble and regular) don't fully insert into 1/4 sockets (tested on several different brands). This just means they wobble a bit. For the price, it might just be worth buying some individual extension for the 1/4 drive if it irritates you that much (if you have pressure on the extension, then it won't wobble).

Nice chrome finish, bought with a discount coupon so it was a really hard deal to beat. I have used these on and off now for quite some time and with simply wiping them down after use they have remained like new. Broad selection and a good price for the quality. I would definitely recommend this set.

Not for Impact gun use...
Well, I was using the 1/2" swivel today with an impact gun and the pin fell out of the swivel. I put in back in, and hammered the edges to keep it in; worked fine after that. Impressed me that it didn't snap, which was expected. Worth the money, and am buying another set for a relative.

Wobble extensions work great for hard to reach areas where a straight extension just can't quite make the angle and a wobble socket just doesn't work. Quality of set is good for the price. Haven't had any issues with set.

Like everyone else said, great items.
I will comment on the black case. I thought it was going to be cheap and flimsy but I was surprised how well that was made. You could grab a corner of it and pick everything up without spilling it. I am using it in my box to hold all of the extensions.

17 Piece Drive Tool Set
Quality is good and worth the price. The wobble feature is nice when you need it for a slight angle to the fastener, however it does make the square drive end weaker. Also, it doesn't always work in the non-wobble mode if your sockets block full entry of the extension. This is mostly a problem with the 1/4 inch extensions. The 1/4 extensions will not fully insert into the size adapter or the universal joint. They still work, only they wobble. The 3/8 and 1/2 sizes work better but may still not fully insert into some of your sockets, etc. Like any tool it's best used within it's limitations.

This set is good for the money .But not as strong as some other brands that cost more. I broke the longer two 1/4 extensions and the 1/4 wobbly whiten a week . Yes i use on of the extensions all most every day. the 3/8 and 1/2 inch extensions hold up very well. They alone were worth what the hole set cost if bought different brand. Over all worth the money

Terrific Socket Drive Accessory Set
Reaching in odd, tight places, adding extensions or mixing sizes: This inexpensive system makes it happen for far less than half of these items would cost if purchased separately. I was surprised at the heavy weight of the individual pieces and the quality of the machining

Nice Add On
I bought this set to supplement to my current ratchet set in my shop. I cannot complain for the price this is a great set. I have put a few of them to the test and and so far I like the purchase. The variety of sizes are good.
