Craftsman MACH Series Shows off Innovation

Craftsman MACH Series

The Craftsman MACH series of hand tools are designed for speed and efficiency. While Craftsman is already well known for their durability and strength, they have added some innovative features to so that your time on the job is well used.

Craftsman MACH Series 10 piece Wrench Set

It’s tough to think that you could do much to improve the standard open end/static end wrench set, but Craftsman found a way. The open end of the MACH series wrenches feature a ratcheting action that allow users to work continuously with repositioning. A direction indicator is clearly visible so the user is aware at a glace of which way the ratcheting action works.


The 10 piece set is currently priced at $39.99 and comes with the following sizes:

  • Metric: 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 13 mm, 14 mm
  • Standard: 5/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″

Craftsman MACH Series 11 piece Bit Driver Set

Craftsman offset the handle and included a smooth rolling bearing to give this hand held bit driver the ability to continuously drive without requiring the user to reposition their hand. When the basic design leaves a need for more torque, the innovative 90 degree breakover joint in the handle allows the user to apply a more forceful action.


The 11 piece set is set at $14.99 and includes the bit driver along with:

  • Phillips bits: #1, #2 #3
  • Slotted bits: 1/4″, 3/16″, 3/8″
  • Hex bits: 1/4″, 3/16″, 5/32″, 3/8″

Craftsman MACH Series 3/8″ Drive Ratchet

Craftsman has designed a 3-in-1 action system into the MACH Drive Ratchet. With the obvious function being as a 3/8″ ratchet, the rotating head converts the tool into a ratcheting screwdriver. Finally, an expanding, reversible helix shaft provides 1-1/2 revolutions per stroke to offer function as a push screwdriver. As a ratchet, the head rotates 270 degrees, improving flexibility in hard to reach locations. The MACH Drive Ratchet will sell for $24.99 on its own.


The 53 piece Mechanic’s Set is $49.99 and includes the 3/8″ ratchet along with:

  • 1/4″ drive sockets: 5/32″, 3/16″, 7/32″, 5-1/2 mm, 6 mm, 7 mm
  • 3/8″ female x 1/4″ male adapter
  • 3/8″ sockets: 1/4″, 5/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″. 5/8″, 8 mm, 9 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm, 13 mm, 14 mm, 15 mm


Like all of Craftsman’s hand tools, the MACH Series is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. For more information, visit Craftsman’s website, your local Sears, or check out the video.
