I've done plenty of heavy work on cars and have never had anything fail on me cause of my cheap tools.

Now I'm not going to go to harbor freight and pick up a fucking 1/2 inch impact set. I know better. Doesn't make a lick of difference between a craftsman impact socket set and a snapon.

Cept a snapon on set is way more expensive, will rape you, and on top of all of that, refuse to give you a bj


Well your titled to your own oppinion. I agree that snap-on is on the expensive side, however, you deffinatly get what you pay for when it comes to tools. I've had numerous craftsman tools including torque wrenches, ratchets, impact drivers,etc.. and when it comes to anything with a ratcheting gear, they always break/snap on me. I will admit that i abuse my tools, but to me, craftsman just doesnt hold up. Their perfect for home use i guess, but for shop use, thats a big no no for me. I cant count how many times i went back to sears for replacements until i came to realize that i needed better quality tools. Especially since matco, snap-on, and corwell trucks come around the shop i work at every other week. We do pay wholesale, not retail for our tools so they come out to near the same price as most of the craftsman tools. Matco and cornwell are cheaper than snap-on and have the same durability. But when it comes to torque wrenches, you really want the best considering what your torqueing is most likely an important bolt and you really want that torque wrench to be calibrated right and dead on spec wise.
