anybody here use Snap-On tools?
I've got some, not a lot. They're good, but expensive.
snap-on mac a few craftsman
Snap On are the only tools we use. Dad was a mechanic, we owned a marina when I was a kid, got my first set when I was 6.
Last I inventoried, there are about $100,000.00 in hand and air tools in the shop
Snap on tools are great but I guarantee you tools don't make a mechanic. Buy what you can afford that a company will stand behind for a lifetime and don't get caught up with what name is on them. I've wrenched on all kinds of equipment, know mechanics who forgot more than I'll ever know about wrenching and I've never met anyone who was better than me simply because his tools costs more. You know what I mean?
Wait till you ROUND OFF A NUT because of a CHEAP tool. Snap-on are like Exmark---NUMBER ONE!!!!!!!!!
Yes I have about $15000.00 invested but thats 1970's dollars so I don't know what they would cost me today. Also have Mac ,Maco, New Britain and Craftsman. I hate cheep tools. Nothing worse than working with c-r-a-p tools.
Landcruiser I agree with you 100%. I have even seen mechanics and fabricators using Craftsman tools before. I was just doing this post just to see who uses them. I use Craftsman here myself.
Standar rule of thumb is keep Craftsman tools in your trailer and truck box, because if you loose them who cares....Go to Sears, buy another set.
We only use Snap on tools in our shop. Never seen a
craftsman truck pull up and check my stock before, and time is money.
Nobody's tools feel as good tom use as Snap on either.
Aint that the truth.
