if i were to use them everyday i agree. snap on is better. i actually got like $1000 of free snap on tools when i graduated from UTI. i ended up selling them on ebay because i decided not to work on cars. i took the money, bought a laptop, transfered my credits and am now getting an automotive management degree.

Don't forget Home Depot Husky brand. Jsut as good and sometimes cheaper. I hate getting stuff covered by Craftsman Sears. They give me crap about it sometimes and then the tool doesn't fit in the tool case because it has changed in design.

Just can't go wrong with Craftsman for the price! I'm a pretty die hard Craftsman fan by now. Anytime somebody wants to give me a gift and asks me what I want, I just tell them to get me a gift card for Sears. Here's a little slice of my garage. Everything is Craftsman down to my two shop vacs and even the clock on the wall.

Yeah it's a great deal and brand new from the dealer people. I may have to go for it, I will be making a living with these tools before too long.
snap-on are by far the best, especially if you plan on wrenching for a living. I have craftsman and snap-on [i wrench for a living also] and by far the snap-on are better. cornwell tools are also very good, I have some of their stuff also. when it comes to tools box, bet ball barring drawers, but other than that they all do the same thing, hold tools.

He said strap-on, not snap-on.
He was trying to be funny.
Apparently he doesnt like taking it in the butt from his lady friends.

not to put words in his mouth. but "strap on" is a derogatory term used my mechanics to refer to "snap on." so, i think he really was talking about snap on.

strap-on = snap-on
corn hole = cornwell
crapsman = craftsman

we have funny names for them all. and refer to the snap-on dealer as "snapper head"

snap on are decent, and craftsman are great.. how can you complain about a lifetime warranty... and matco are the best.

Snap-On are probably the highest quality tool you can buy IMO, and in the opinion of all the mechanics/techs I know

I have over 10k in snap-on tools and toolboxes, and it was the biggest mistake. They dont chrome plate them for shit. All of my tools were pampered in foam in expensive tool boxes inside, and they all rusted to pieces. Almost EVERY ONE of my sockets and ratchets needed to be replaced. But my craftsman tools in my garage neglected never rusted once. I am never buying expensive tools again. Craftsman are well priced quality tools.
