Stanley 92-839 Black Chrome and Laser Etched Socket Set, 99-Piece Quality Tools This set has been great for maintenance around the shop. Carrying it on the truck, however, reveals the problems everyone’s been having with the case. Given that you can generally adjust most of the sockets to stay firm even when bouncing along on and off road, it’s really not such a problem that the case doesn’t hold them fast all the time. The biggest hangup is the foam...

Stanley STST18613 3-in-1 Rolling WorkShop

Stanley STST18613 3-in-1 Rolling WorkShop OK product As I read IN REVIEWS before, it’s a little small, but so far ok and adequate. I’ve modified mine with a "bucket-buddy" to give it more pockets for easy tool retrieval. In the electrical trade, one has to ask oneself all the time, "Is it worth the weight." ? Small rocks and nails really fetch up the wheels. I’m going to modify mine with better wheels. But overall it’s a great concept, and...

Stanley 92-824 Black Chrome and Laser Etched 69-Piece Socket Set best priced deep well setGOOD-the contents said 2- 3/8″ spark plug sockets but it’s 3/16″ and 5/8″-Stanley owns MAC tools so they’re probably made at the same place-the case actually holds the pieces quite well-the cheapest deep well set you will find from a reputable company BAD-the picture is off a bit= where the 3in. extension(for 1/4″ drive)is actually where the other spark plug socket resides the 3in. extension sits...

Stanley RST-63005 AM/FM Earmuff with AUX Input Died After less Than 1 WeekORIGIONAL REVIEW: 3 StarsI have owned 2 pairs of Peltor headphones over the past 7 years. I wear headphones constantly both inside and while working outside. I listen to talk radio the vast majority of the time. I live in the Los Angeles Area, so my signal strength is pretty good. My last Peltor headset works fine but after 4 years of constant use they have picked up...

Stanley FL5W10 5 Watt LED Waterproof Rechargeable Spotlight

Stanley FL5W10 5 Watt LED Waterproof Rechargeable Spotlight picture 001

Stanley FL5W10 5 Watt LED Waterproof Rechargeable Spotlight Bad DesignI have both the waterproof and non-waterproof versions. The waterproof version will not hold a charge very well and therefore gives very little operating life. About to throw it away, I decided to look into what was happening as the non-waterproof version works great and others have had the poor battery performance as well with this model.The rotating on/off switch does not penetrate thru the plastic. Instead it moves a magnet...

Stanley 060864R Folding Sawhorse (2-Pack) Excellent changesThese are much better than the other, cheaper Stanley sawhorses we’d been using that had too many fiddly parts in them (some of which were plastic knobs that held the center flat work space on and the two sides apart). The knobs on the previous Stanley sawhorses completely wore down to nothing, so we had to find a way to fix that to keep the sides from collapsing. On these, there’s no issue with...

Stanley 037025H 50 Gallon Mobile Chest Excellent portable jobsite tool storageI bought one of these early this year for work. I loaded it with 150′ of extension cords, 150′ of air hose, my skillsaw, framing nailer and all the small items I use every day and I roll it right to my job site, sometimes over rough terrain. It has held up excellently, with not a single shortcoming. The top is well designed and can be used as a portable...

Stanley 94-248 65-Piece General Homeowner’s Tool Set Good kitI bought this kit to keep in the house and avoid having to run to my larger tool chest in the garage when I need a couple of basic tools. In general, the tool quality is good for general household use, and I really only have two complaints about the kit. The first that is that the ratchet is basically junk (but what can you really expect for $43?). It’s O.K. for...
