For that budget Channellock 369 linemans and some average Home Depot or Dewalt screwdrivers will leave you with money left over for another useful basic tool like a pair of wire strippers or a level.

Channellock 369s are the bees knees. Get a Klein 11n1 and you got most you need. Cheap enough to pick up an Channellock 908 wire strippers too. :thumbsup:

Nah man that set totally sucks.

It's like it's an ultra cheap knockoff set.. I bought it to have some back up tools and I chipped the ***** the first time I went to use them. wtf! I have a picture on my computer somewhere.

It's not the usual crap klein quality we complain, this is UBER CRAP!

Pretty sure that was a drywall screw.. can't even cut a drywall screw? I have used my Ideal Tools ***** on EVERYTHING. They can either cut it or not cut it, but they don't chip!

Its has the same part numbers as the individual tools. If they chipped then take them back and swap them for a new pair.

I just picked up the 369's, greenlee 9 in 1, and a craftsmen utility knife at Sears for a total of 35 bucks. Thanks for the suggestions
Good work...:thumbup:
