LOLOLOL. Yep, That's a Sears/Craftsman factory offering right there.

And you wonder why they have problems now?

See 2008-2009 Sears Catalog page 40.

22k gold plated polished cross force set wrenches.
$129.99 for set of 4 with walnut display case.

22k gold 8 piece socket set w/ 22k 3/8" (pear head) driver and seven 22k gold sockets.

Add $20 a set to personalise with engraving of your name.

I never got that shit.

The titanium blue was wild enuff. Gold plate? wtf Sears???????????

I'll scan and post the catalog page if interested.

well, gold is certainly more corrosion resistant than the normal chrome finish... it may be worth quit a bit more these days with the price of gold going up...

I got the "22kt gold" plated Craftsman 8-pc socket Set set in a nice hardwood box on clearance from Sears for $19.97.....clearly that must have almost zero gold on them. Sounds good, but I do not really think this the real deal.

I've been looking for the 2006 edition of the gold plated ratchet / socket set, being that my daughter was born in 06.

I flagged it. I always flag ads that have tons of keywords in them that have nothing to do with the item for sale.
