On the rachets, I have found that the Snap On work the best for me, at the very least it gives me a "warm gooy feeling"
using them. But the S-K as well as the later high end Craftsmen are SUPER ratchets, VERY nice.
Today I experianced another reason why I walk on that truck. We have MAC, MATCO (I've known him for about 20 years) and Snap On. They are all wonderful guys that will really bend over backwards for you. So, today I walked on the Snap On truck with a request for a very short #4 phillips screwdriver head for a socket to tighten the hinge bolts on the doors of my 65 Buick. He went to a drawer and pulled one out and handed it to me for free. THAT is the type of service I get and why I am not worried about a few more dollars here and there.
