Bat, Good advice but quite a bit late since he probably has finished school by now, he was asking about that a year and a half ago.

I know this is an old post...but it's raining and I'm bored and this is good information....so...in answer to his quesiton...Not IMHO!

I have a Snap-On body hammer that I bought when I was 18 - I used it professionally for 8 years and I still use it today! Of course back then it was only 20.00!

Here's a picture if you don't believe me! Both are Snap-On BF-604 hammers...Which one is 26 years old?

But the quality is so good with the hammers and dollies I bought 6 more hammers and 3 dollies last year and they are worth every penny.

I've found with wrenches, screwdrivers, and sockets...these items tend to "walk" out of your toolbox - whether it be someone borrowing it and not returning or inadvertently leaving them in the vehicle!

If you are working at a shop where the Snap-On guy comes by once a week that makes it an easy choice he'll have your missing socket...otherwise look at the Professional line of Craftsman tools - not the standard ones... (of course how much longer is Sears going to be in business?) I got a complete set a couple of years ago and am very happy with them.
