Here are the best mechanics tool set deals for Black Friday 2021 that I’ve found so far. Please let me know if you have any tips or recommendations!
As for which is the best Black Friday deal for 2021, that really depends on what your needs are and how much you are looking to spend. $99 tends to be a popular price point, and there are also good deals above and below this amount.
Spending more than $99 will usually get you upgraded ratchets or less “fillers” (such as screwdriver bits or hex keys) and more sockets or wrenches.
Mechanics tool sets are most often used as portable tool kits, or as the center of a beginner’s tool collection. Some people might instead prefer the piecemeal approach to building up a mechanics tool set, where they buy individual components or smaller socket sets. There might be some deals on these items as well – let me know what you’d like me to be on the lookout for.
I own or have tested most of these mechanics tool sets, and would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
Husky 94pc Mechanics Tool Set
When building up my own tool kit, I started with a ~94pc mechanics tool set for $50, not unlike this Husky. This set gives you a good starting point, and you can add to it as needed.
Gearwrench Flex-Head Bit Ratchet Tool Set
The stars of the show here are the two flex-head bit ratchets, designed to access or fit fasteners in tough spots.
Wera Zyklop Ratchet and Socket Sets
While not on sale right now, Amazon has had excellent Black Friday specials on Wera Zyklop tool kits and other mechanics tool sets for the past several years without fail. Check back to see what’s featured in this year’s promo.
Milwaukee 56pc 3/8″ SAE & Metric Socket Set
I upgraded part of my kit to Milwaukee ratchet and socket sets last year, and have had zero regrets. These are great tools, and the sockets’ anti-roll design definitely comes in handy.
One of the great parts about this kit is that it comes with a compact case (and a good one at that), and also a removable tray that can be placed inside a tool box drawer.
Husky 270pc Mechanics Tool Set
If you want a lot of bang for the buck, this Husky set is hard to beat.
Gearwrench 232pc Mechanics Tool Set
This set features a whopping number of 22 ratcheting wrenches (90T) and also comes with 90T ratchets for a smaller minimum swing arc.
Gearwrench 94pc 120XP Socket Set with EVA Tray
If you’re more of a tool chest or mobile cabinet type of user, here’s a convenient set that’s designed for drawers.
Dewalt 142 Mechanics Tool Set
Dewalt’s mechanics tool sets are always a great value this time of year.
Craftsman 216pc Set with Versastack Tool Box
Craftsman’s mechanics tool set offers a good starter assortment and comes in a Versastack tool box that connects to compatible tool boxes and organizers.
Dewalt 226pc Mechanics Tool Set with ToughSystem Tool Box
While many larger tool sets come with blowmolded cases or plastic tool boxes with slide-out drawers, this one comes with custom trays and a ToughSystem-compatible tool box. If your needs change, you can move the trays to a tool chest and reuse the tool box for something else.
