With my husband being a mechanic in the army, I wasn’t really sure what tools he liked or disliked. I couldn’t tell you a ratchet from a wrench either. I thought i would just wing it and ask Channellock what they had for fathers day. I had not heard of this company either, so I really had no real expectations on my husbands reaction. I figured either he would like it or hate it right?
When my tool set arrived, i was not prepared for his excitement. I think it shocked me seriously. He was so happy haa! I kid you not i could quote him saying with extreme emphasis “Oh man Channellock?! I love this brand” . I wish i would have known that, say, for the last 8 father’s days. lol!
Anyways, the set rolls out really nice, they are heavy pieces, are made in the USA, and best of all, have a lifetime guarantee. Overall my husband was very thrilled and said he really liked this set. For me, I thought the price for 5 tools was actually very affordable compared to what i have seen in stores. I really want to work up to buy him the CBR-8A Gift Set. Now that I know he likes this brand, it really helps for future gifts.
