There is no denying the quality of Snap-On and Blue Point, there just isn’t. But when it comes to basic tools like wrenches and sockets, its just steel. All my basic wrenches, sockets, and ratchets are craftsman or craftsman pro series, I have never had an issue, and its all lifetime warranty. For specialty tools on the other hand I ALLWAYS go Snap-On. I wouldn’t be caught dead with a pair of craftsman safety wire pliers. I also prefer to go with snap-on for sensitive tools like torque wrenches, and all of my ratcheting wrenches are Snap-On or Blue Point as well as my ¼ drive swivel ratchet.
For most do-it-yourselfers, and people who just want to tinker with your own car, craftsman tools will easily handle the job.
