While I still ran my shop I used Snap-on almost exclusively, sure you paid more but you could count on the things always being there and working when you needed them. Now that I am retired and doing "hobby" work I am like a kid in a candy store when I go into Harbor Freight and even though I now own a bunch of that HF stuff I would NEVER even consider trying to use it in a professional shop, with a few exceptions, and I would strongly recommend using the pro brands to anyone making a living with their tools. Cheap tools are usually no bargain when time is money and can wind up costing a lot more than the purchase price might save so save the cheapies for the hobbys and like MartinSr said, Sometimes you have to open that wallet.
