"chrome will wear through even on Snap-On tools"

Once or twice a year my Snapon Matco and MAC guys will go through my tools and ask me if I want the "worn" ones replaced.

LAST YEAR SNAPON REPLACED 4 SETS OF MY SWIVEL 3/8 METRIC AND SAE sockets. Matco guy saw them and replaced all my 3/8 and 1/2 inch impact sockets with new ones with the big numbers (for the newbie mechanics who cant guess close enough)

If Snap On even thinks about replacing open, box, or crowfeet wrenches with new ones, they have to match the ones in my current sets, if so, I let them, if not I wait for them to get a used one that does....

I guess with Chrapsman you would have to match up the "made in china", "made in japan", "made in India", or " made in tiwan" logos...
