Sorry to hear about your tools check the local Pawn shops see if you see any of your tools there and about your Scout I found one the other day while driving it's a Scout truck I figure about a 77 model im going to see if the owner wants to sell it.

An observation regarding Snap-On tools.

Snap-On now sells their name and logos to outside suppliers of tools per se. I've seen LED trouble lights and flashlights marketed by companies now using the Snap-On name. The stuff is made in China.

I've also seen mechanics gloves the sold the same way - with the Snap-On name. This crap is made in Pakistan. Pakistan is the host country to Osama yo mama Bin Laden and is a country promoting terrorism. Your purchase of anything made in Pakistan supporters terrorism and their nuclear weapons programs.

If I were a Snap-On tool sales person, I'd think twice about the future of the company and my efforts trying to make a living. With fuel prices so high and the company degrading their own famous name by selling out to these other night-flyer's, I wonder what the future holds for the guys with the expensive trucks and inventory.

I found this locally. It's a Matco Pro Formance Series MB4725QSB. 56" long 24" deep. The owners wife said they paid $5,600 for it and they want $2,400 for it. It's in real nice shape. I think they really might have paid $3,600 for it. Thinking about offering $1,800 or so. What do you guys think it's worth? (I could do without the graphics) Thanks for the help.

I'm sorry for your lost. I do not know about matco, but mac tools = junk. mac tools suck. I refuse to buy mac, and when I do I swear its the last time I buy mac everytime. look on ebay for used snap on, they usually have good deals, you just have to pay up front.

Two things to consider.

1.) After buying your tools, get an Insurance rider on your tools. Mine is for $100,000. I got robbed once for $3,500. and that was enough for me to install a security system, lock the doors.

NEVER LEAVE A GARAGE DOOR OPENER IN AN UNLOCKED CAR. Unless of coarse, you got alot of tools you can do without.

2.) Tax time: get a good accountant. "Uninsured Loss". Recoup part of it at least. Then ask about income averaging for 3 years, based on $20K loss.
