broke my first craftsman socket yesterday, but really i was kind of expecting too. had to change hub unit on my monte and its still stupidly bolted in from the back so you can only get a 3/8 deep well between the cv boot and spindle but you cant turn it because its big and has a ton of locktight in it. so i was using a adapter and a 1/2in wrench to turn it.so like half way through the second one it cracked. i have a couple sets of those so i finished with the other and traded it today. they even gave me the new old man version.

Noticed the chrome sockets like to mushroom at the ends and tend to crack. Ratchet wrenches are junk, ratchets and break over bars are ok. I refuse to buy their air tools.

Your right, the Craftsman impact is junk, but so far I have had no problems with the 3/8 air ratchet. Other than the rivet for the actuator broke off, I ended up using a right angled allen key to make a new one.
