harbor freight sells sockets in kits, buy the whole box, it's cheaper than buying each one individually

I just bought a 298 pc Husky set. They seem nice. going into double chest but I like having drawers set up with what my vehicles used and then in a lower drawer have the remainder. Metrics and common tools on top.

Thanks WC Kevin, Have you heard of ACT III Phillips Head{ I think thats right} that have the grooves cut in circles at the tip. I guess they really help keep a grip on phillips heads.I just dont know who sells them after a quick look, but i try to switch fasteners to another style from phillips where possible
