Northern Industrial Tools Ratchets, Sockets and Tools - 305-Pc. SAE and Metric Set, Model# 50421
From no tools to capable in one set
A friend was asking what tools he should get for a racecar project he wanted to start. He didn't have a lot of experience, just bought a new home with a 3 car garage and wanted me to lead him on the way. I started pointing him to individual packages but they started to add up quickly. For his house warming present, I bought him this set. It has almost everything a shade tree mechanic would need to get started. I subsidized his set with a few other specialty tools and some books, but he has probably 80-85% of what he'll ever need right here. Very nice complete set that is mid to pro quality at a good price.

Northern 305 pc ratchet set
Bought this back in 07 or 08 it sat on the floor of my apt. A big heavy box came with all the groups of tools in brown paper sandwich bags. I opened it thinking where's the case ? But then relooked at the site and saw it was just tools. Almost returned it but was past the window. Now that Im in my house - this set is used all the time to take stuff apart, clean it put it back together. Great starter set prolly will buy the other two that compliment this one.

best tool set ever bought
one day my dad came home with this tool set and i helped him put everything into his tool box. he loves this tool set so much, a week later he got two more (three in total). he is a professional mechanic for the village and is constantly getting new tools because they were garbage . he has never had a problem with this set and has had them for 2-3 years now. we recommend this set to every one. craftsman likes to fill there sets with nut drivers and hex keys, stuff you really aren't looking for. northern gives you those to but also gives you a complete wrench set ( full sized and shorts) . i actually just got a craftsman set for my birthday (309 piece) and i still use my dads set more.

I am a mobile mechanic so I need all of my tools on a daily basis. These tools are a great buy. They compare with any of the other expensive name brand tools I have used. You can't beat the price for the quality that you get

Great set of tools
This is a great tool set, smooth edges, and easy on the hands. 6 point sockets for a firm grip on the bolt. It also has a generous assortment of accessories, such as a full set of crows foot wrenches.

Great set of Tools
I purchased this set a few months ago, initially for the value. But I have discovered that this tool set is top of the line and comparable to the top name brands.

Great tool set for the price
This is the best way to get your tool set jump-started. The tools are well made and there is a wide variety. The tools arrive in individual pouches in a box. Be sure to check that everything is complete and that nothing is duplicated.
I also recommend the two accessory kits that compliment this item with no duplication
Excellent value for the price!
