Ive been using hand-me-down handtools for years. S*K has been my favorite; no idea on their quality now that they're owned by Cooper Industries. My dads SK ratchet finally gave up the ghost; I called up a local shop that repped SK and he wanted 25 bucks to sell me the guts for a ratchet, that MIGHT work in my dads old (1970 vintage) ratchet. Screw it; I went to Sears and bought dad a new one. That thing is SUCH a pile with the coarse teeth, and they get so much junk in them they barely cycle after awhile (you can flush them out with PB Blaster, if you remove the snapring too many times it will deform). UGH!
My screwdrivers are Klein, I also have some old Proto (?) I like as well
