Thumbs up 200 Husky Sockets for $79! WHAT?!?

200 Husky Sockets for $79! WHAT?!?

I ordered this set online last Thursday for $99. Were also in my local store on Friday. I received them yesterday, Tuesday, shipped free and no local sales tax (6.5%). Wouldn't you know them sumbitches lowered the price even more! I'll be going into the store to get a price match, you can bet on that!

I have a number of Husky socket sets and they are of decent quality. The only "issue" I have with this set is that the 1/2" drive are only 12pt. But at 40 cents a socket, how could you go wrong? LINK

If all else fails you have a set of sockets to make into special tools.

I went to pick up mine, they were now listed at $100, I asked why they were not $80 as reported, the asst manager, bangs on the keyboard, turned to the sales girl, said you’re all set, she hit total it came to $54 for the sockets, plus $4.32 sales tax, for a grand total of $58.32. Or $.29/socket.

I have a complete P&C (early Proto) 1/2” drive set that goes from 3/8” to 1-1/4”, by 1/32” increments . Most of those sockets have never been used.
