I found these high quality ratcheting wrenches 75-90% off in the phoenix area last weekend.  At the time the deal was only in AZ.  But now I see stores in FL and TX having similiar prices.  Very YMMV - so far this is only in AZ, FL, TX!  I got most of these in SAE and MM for like $4 each!

I am NOT a tool snob ( I have many from Harbor Freight and even Dollar Tree), but --
Kobalt is the Lowe's house brand.  Tool snobs would question whether Kobalt should be described as "high quality."

They did this with their non flex head ratchet wrenches a few years ago. None in my area once they hit about $3. These are nice to have and do go for $89 for an 8 pc set, so if you can piece a set together for $5 each you've not done bad

As a former full time mechanic and weekend home warrior, I can't recall the last time I used an SAE (inch) tool, pmuch everything is metric now and has been for some time.
