I don't understand what is fraudulent about using the warranty that the manufacturer provides. I may be mistaken but Snap-on doesn't stipulate that their product only carries a lifetime warranty if you were the original purchaser.
If their tools wouldn't break the warranty would never be needed. Yes, when you purchase a Snap-on tool you get a lifetime warranty that adds to the price of the item, but ultimately you are paying that price not for the warranty but for the name stamped into the tool......
Hell, even the junk china made tools have lifetime warranties.......
