The years I worked as a professional auto mechanic (Ford factory trained) I used Craftsman tools. I had a few Snap-On tools that were not available from Craftsman, but most of my tools were Craftsman. Contrary to some opinions I didn't break many Craftsman tools, and the ones I did break were from improper use by me. They were replaced without question I might add. I saw many younger guys fresh from auto tech schools buy into the Snap-On fraternity. They worked solely to pay the Snap-On tool man. If that is what you want, go for it. My experience with Craftsman tools was and still is vastly different from opinions voiced here.
